Toward a nonpolluting energy system

Author: Ayres, Robert U. ; Frankl, PaoloINSEAD Area: Economics and Political ScienceIn: Environmental Science and Technology, 01/09/1998 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 408-410.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask us for this itemAbstract: Long-term sustainability of the global economy requires growth in value-added but sharply reduced consumption of non-renewable natural resources. Information technology is helpful, of course, but, in the long-run the global materials cycle must be closed. The authors suggest that this imperative necessitates a spaceship economy based on a 'hydrogen economy'. The primary source of energy for all purposes (in the long run) must be the sun and the main carriers must be photovoltaic or nuclear electricity (for stationary uses) and photovoltaic hydrogen (for mobile uses). Fortunately most of the technological prerequisites, e.g. PV cells and fuel cells are now being developed. We believe a new PV-hydrogen driven industrial revolution is now in the early stages.
