The Plethora of Better Alternatives to Wind/Solar Power and Electric Cars
- Jul 7, 2018 10:31 pm GMT
- Current technology-forcing policies imply that wind/solar power and BEVs are our primary solutions for building a sustainable society.
- This article reviews eight alternative sustainable development solutions with greater fundamental potential.
- These include improved “life efficiency”, virtual mobility, healthy lifestyle choices, energy efficiency, CCS and bio-CCS, small electric vehicles, sustainable fuels and nuclear energy.
- Overall, I estimate that technology neutrality can activate more than 10x greater sustainable development potential than current technology-forcing policies.
The previous article summarized the dangers of current technology-forcing of ideologically attractive wind/solar power and battery electric vehicles (BEVs). This article will discuss some of the wide range of alternative sustainability channels that would thrive under a proper technology-neutral policy framework, greatly accelerating global progress towards our sustainable development goals.
