Tony Seba's Clean Disruption Keynote presentation at the Swedbank Nordic Energy Summit in Oslo, Norway, March 17th, 2016. The keynote, based on the book 'Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation' assert that four technology categories will disrupt energy and transportation by: 1- Batteries / Energy Storage 2- Electric Vehicles 3- Self-Driving Vehicles 4- Solar Energy The outcome of the Clean Disruption is that by 2030 • All new vehicles will be electric. • All new vehicles will be autonomous (self-driving). • Oil will be obsolete • Coal, natural gas and nuclear will be obsolete • 80+ per cent of parking spaces will be obsolete. • Individual car ownership will be obsolete. • All new energy will be provided by solar (and wind) Clean Disruption is a technology disruption. Just like d...
Oslo is one of the greenest cities in the world, with plans to halve its carbon emissions by 2020. Key to achieving this is the country's biggest energy recovery facility, the Klemetsrud plant, which generates energy by burning rubbish. At full capacity, the plant will provide all the heat and electricity for Oslo's schools and heat for 56,000 homes.

Upon further investigation, I learned that the Norwegian government heavily incentivizes ownership of electric cars: Tesla doesn't pay a sales tax on the models it sells, electric car owners are exempt from automobile tolls, and they can charge their vehicles for free. The catch is that Norway funds these initiatives through its sovereign wealth fund, which is almost entirely comprised of profits ...

Sunniva Rose is a Norwegian physicist and has her own blog. She doing a PhD in nuclear energy at the University of Oslo, where she is currently focusing on the use of Thorium in nuclear power stations. In her spare time she is blogging about nuclear energy, research, fashion, interior design and her daughter. This year she also was representing the student candidate for the Presidents office at the University of Oslo. We are proud to invite her on stage. The topic she will be talking to us about is how media´s coverage of the risk of nuclear energy is wrong.

Velkommen til vårt årlige energiseminar 31. oktober på Hotel Continental i Oslo. Få med deg de siste nyhetene fra det nordiske kraftmarkedet og energibransjen for øvrig. I fjor var nye energiløsninger hovedtema. I år har vi fokus på smart energibruk. Målet med energiseminaret er å gi økt innsikt, sosiale kontakter og ny kunnskap!
Everyone produces waste, and the Swedes are no different. It’s what they do with it that is unusual. Sweden recycles and sorts its waste so efficiently that less than 1 percent ends up in landfills. But perhaps even more interesting, and somewhat controversial, is that Sweden burns about as much household waste as it recycles, over 2 million tons, and converts this to energy. But even with this amount of domestic waste, the country’s 32 waste-to energy (WTE) incineration plants can handle even more. And when Sweden runs out of its own garbage, it offers a service to the rest of garbage-bloated Europe: importing excess waste from other countries.
I spent the day on a walkabout in Oslo. During the day I had some thoughts. I did some selfie videos of what I was thinking at the time. Later I put it together in my iPhone. It's more of a reminder to myself of what I find important but maybe, just maybe, you might enjoy what I have to say. There's some tips on riding the Bysykkel system in Oslo.
Oslo needs your trash. The city of Oslo in Norway heats about half of their buildings by burning trash. They are experiencing a shortage of waste to burn, because their energy demands are rising and they depend on the availability of garbage. They are already importing trash from England, Ireland and Sweden. Many countries in Europe generate energy by burning trash, so the demand is much larger than the supply. People who are against incinerator power plants say that they create more carbon dioxide pollution than coal plants. The chairman of Norway's oldest environmental group, an affiliate of the Friends of the Earth said: "From an environmental point of view, it's a huge problem. There is pressure to produce more and more waste, as long as there is this overcapa...
What if oil companies' biggest threat came not from dropping prices, but from disappearing demand? In this talk, originally delivered at the Oslo Energy Forum on 17 February 2015, Amory Lovins explains the different trends facing oil and gas industry executives.
