H2O & Energy
What could our global water and energy situations be like in 2025? Will water be the next oil? Is the grid our weakest link? Are Green Buildings only a marketing feature?
Both water quality and quantity seem local needs, however waterways and climate change go beyond borders. Merging economies will push the use of energy and water to a new level. It may seem as a luxury to not have any idea of the costs of your water and power usage, but this will change soon.
I participated in two future studies about resources for the World Business Council for Sustainable Development: H2O and Energy Efficient Buildings.
