How green energy will change our future - Docu 4.5
How will green energy change our future? What will our future look like with green energy? The growth of green energy goes together with change. Our future will not only include green energy, but our future will also be shaped by it.

What will the future sustainable world look like? That is the big question, now that the global transition towards sustainable energy is gaining momentum. For the growth of sustainable energy involves a lot more changes than just the color of the power supplied to our homes. How will we build, how will our mobility be impacted, and will energy, one day, be free? Just like the Internet turned out to have an unforeseen influence on all kinds of industries, from music to taxi businesses, the transition towards sustainable energy will also rise beyond the energy sector. And with a much wider impact than is now assumed. But we know surprisingly little about what that world will look like, and how the people in it will live, work and move around. Expectations are that, by the 2050s, two-thirds of the electricity generated globally will be sustainable.

The Netherlands is ambitious too. But what kind of world are we heading for, really, with all these sustainable measures? In partial areas, the future is clear: a massive stop to the use of gas, lots of windmills and solar panels, and perhaps a self-driving car outside. But, for now, there is no wider vision of what the sustainable new world will look like. What will the world be like once energy has become practically free? What will the impact of the transition towards sustainable energy be on the balance of power in the world?

A journey along places where the sustainable future is already (nearly) visible. In China, for example, old collapsed coal mines are given a new destination as solar parks. In Denmark, the power plants of the future also serve as skiing slopes. And in Malmö, Sweden, new leases are signed with green fingers.

When the Asian girl said "I've graduated from MIT" and in the next sentence you hear "nukelar" as a ref to energy.. and you go (-‸ლ)

This is a no brainier, and decentralization is the key. That is the very thing loathed by the current titans of dirty energy.

fantastic doc! The architect lays down a really amazing insight. The amazing new thinking of today will be normal for the children of tomorrow. The world is moving forward, while in america, the fearful, the ignorant cling to the past systems. That will be their loss and the world will not look back.

" Energy independence is economic security, food security and even national security. " Well said! The children of the future will not know war. They will know peace instead and hopefully they will also thank us for our efforts to create that future. Haha! The ski slope on the old energy plant is brilliant! 🧘‍♀️🧘‍♂️💖🌧🌧🌧🌍🌎🌏🌧🌧🌧💖🧘‍♂️🧘‍♀️

The fossil fuel executives and their buddies must have a plan for leaving the planet once they've trashed it completely.
I don't know where they'll go, but personally, I think that they should go to hell.

To listen to these green energy experts fawn over China you'd think it was like the freest cleanest most virtuous country on the planet rather than the largest totaliterian polluter that it really is..

There is a modification that allows for greater energy generation.

Great video. Thanks for the upload. Unfortunately, reading the comments makes me lose hope in humanity again. How are we going to deal with so much stupidity.
