In a changing economy where virtually nothing is certain, energy remains one of the most important sectors for businesses large and small, local and global. Energy drives everything that we do—from harvesting natural resources and transporting manufactured goods to helping individuals get to and from work. But while the energy economy has long been preoccupied with questions such as foreign dependence and rising costs, another critical element now demands our attention: the environment.
As technology progresses, the energy sector has innovated ways to increase the efficiency of our power plants, vehicles and home appliances while reducing their ecological footprint. Many of these technological advances have already been incorporated into the energy sources we use today, while others continue struggling along the road to widespread adoption. Political, economical and technological barriers are slowly falling away from the most viable alternative energy sources—but choosing the winners and investing in the energy economy of the future remains a daunting challenge.
