GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 15th May at noon SLT: Total electrification!


What changes can we expect in the world when everything runs on electricity only?  No machines running on oil, no coal or gas for heating.

The power will lie with those who can make electricity cheaply.  Since solar energy is now cheaper than other forms of energy it will probably lie with the producers of solar energy.  Solar produces more electricity on the blast area of a nuclear plant than the nuclear plant itself. And solar energy does not need to be dug or pumped out of the ground.

What will change politically?  Which countries will be the new superpowers? Countries with lots of desert, or countries with lots of sea for floating solar plants?

And what about the millions of small solar installations on everyone’s roof?  Will we all be power sellers in the future?

Come and discuss the future of power (in all its meanings).  Bring your friends!
