Happy new year 2023 to all our listeners. In this Episode, it is Nostradamus vs. Cassandra all over again: Laurent and Gerard review their 2022 predictions (Episode 65) and look forward to the future. How accurate were our two co-hosts’ predictions for 2022?

  1. The Energy Transition is not going to be a smooth ride
  2. The Hydro and water crisis
  3. The decade of geothermal
  4. Energy High Prices
  5. Elon Musk out of Tesla
  6. Power Market Structure Reform

Overall, it seems to be another draw. You’ll be the judge.

And here are our new Predictions for 2023

  1. Record installation of everything Energy Transition: Solar, Batteries, Heat Pumps, EV
  2. Massive consolidation in the EV sector – Toyota will buy Panasonic
  3. Volatility in the Energy market is here to stay
  4. New alternatives to Li-Ion in Stationary Storage
  5. The Energy Transition has no plan, it just goes
  6. Nuclear: Westinghouse takes over Europe


We thank our partner Aquila Capital for their continuous support and wish all our listeners a Happy New Year 2023.

Everyone sets their predictions for the year to come around this time, but not everyone looks back to be accountable for their hits and misses in the past. Kudos to you for doing so!
