Harvard University: Mara Prentiss, “Energy Revolution”

We can launch an energy revolution that drastically decreases CO2 emission and other deleterious consequences associated with fossil fuel burning. Energy extraction can be cut by more than 50% by converting fossil fuel burning engines to electric motors and replacing fossil fuel burning power plants with renewable sources. In addition, energy efficient systems and improvements in computation and connectivity can significantly reduce energy consumption and lower energy costs. These goals can be achieved using commercially available technologies. New technologies may offer even greater opportunities.
