A Clear Path to a Better Planet
Six years ago, renowned futurist and author Jeremy Rifkin released his seminal book, “The Third Industrial Revolution,” where he envisioned a future in which “millions of buildings will become power plants that will load renewable energy. We will load solar power from the sun, wind from turbines and even ocean waves on each coast.”
As we optimistically look forward to 2018, it is becoming clear that in some parts of the world, Rifkin’s future is, in fact, already here. Although not quite numbering in the “millions” yet, smart buildings that adapt to the conditions around them to generate their own energy in the most efficient way are sprouting everywhere. From office buildings that harvest solar and wind, to data center designs that let cool air and water in to reduce cooling costs, the way we generate and use energy is going through a revolutionary transformation.

The centralized energy generation and delivery systems of the past are giving way to a more balanced energy mix where utilities and their customers become partners. Utilities have adapted their business models to the new way of playing and have subsequently become the biggest adopters of wind and solar. Meanwhile, off-the-grid electricity generation has emerged, in ways quite close to what Rifkin envisioned, to ease the stress on the grid and make for a more efficient and sustainable system whereby everybody wins.
Changing the Energy Game puts today’s energy transformation in context. The eBook explores how technological advancements in solar, wind and hydrogen can bring about a sustainable energy future. It examines how cities—which are responsible for three-quarters of the world’s energy use and, consequently, more than three-quarters of the world’s carbon emissions—are leading the adoption of a smart energy mix for electricity and transportation.
