BAU assumes that the past can be a predictor for the future. Two authors have had the most influence on my thinking over the last few years: Jeremy Rifkin’s Third Industrial Revolution, and Peter Diamandis’s Bold. In essence they both argue a similar thesis that the decentralisation of communications tools (digital revolution) and energy systems will create a more democratic and disrupted economic system. We are only at the beginning of this disruption with a significant cost reduction in solar PV, storage and micro grids as the next big wave of disruption, smart analytics with blockchain, quantum computing and AI/EVs and then there’s robotics.
