The future leaves clues...

Here’s a recent tech article that got me excited.

Energy Disruption

This week, California ISO, a California electric company, announced it hit an all-time peak served by renewables of 56.7 percent (electricity).

California is on track to meet its 50 percent clean energy target by 2030 with ease.

What it Means

We’re heading towards a wholesale change in the energy economy over the next 20 years.

From hydrocarbon (oil, gas, coal) to all electric, think massive-solar.

I used to think that gas-guzzling cars would maintain the petrochemical industry for a few more decades, but electric-autonomous “car as a service” will cause us each to park, sell, or junk our internal-combustion cars for something that is 10x cheaper and much better (i.e. autonomous Ubers).

Get ready for oil and gas to go the way of whale oil.

Once useful, eventually laughable.

Remember that energy is not scarce.

We have 8,000 times more energy hitting the Earth’s surface in one day than we consume as an entire species.

That energy, the solar flux, isn’t yet in a easily usable form.

But that is changing... fast.

Given the global, exponential growth in solar and the coming innovations in battery technologies (I get five to 10 introductions to new battery technology companies each month), plus deployments like Tesla’s Gigafactory, I’m firmly convinced we’re heading towards a transition.

Coal is already dead.

Oil and gas may not be far behind.

Interested in Joining Me? (two options)...

A360 Executive Mastermind: This is the sort of conversation I explore at my Executive Mastermind group called Abundance 360.

The program is highly selective, for 360 abundance- and exponentially minded CEOs (running $10M to $10B companies).

If you’d like to be considered, APPLY HERE.

Share this with your friends, especially if they are interested in any of the areas outlined above.

A360 Digital Mastermind: I’ve also created a Digital/Online Community of bold, abundance-minded entrepreneurs called Abundance 360 Digital (A360D).

A360D is my ‘onramp’ for exponential entrepreneurs – those who want to get involved and play at a higher level. Click Here to Learn More.

P.S. Every week I send out a "Tech Blog" like this one. If you or someone you know wants to sign up, go to Diamandis.com and sign up for this and Abundance Insider.

P.P.S. My dear friend Dan Sullivan and I have a podcast called Exponential Wisdom. Our conversations focus on the exponential technologies creating abundance, the human-technology collaboration, and entrepreneurship. Head here to listen and subscribe: a360.com/podcast
