Energy in 2050

When I was taking a fuel science course at Penn State in the 80’s, it was right after the first energy crisis, with long lines at the gas pump and schools shutting down because of insufficient supply of natural gas.

It will be interesting to see where we will be with energy production in another 30 years.

An article from E&P Magazine, "Outlook: Future Holds Energy Mix Shake-up," recently piqued my interest enough to share.

DNV GL is an independent quality assurance and risk management company.
