Review Energiegespräche: "Energy Utopia or Energy Dystopia?"

Museum of Technology (Vienna) – September 15, 2015

Energy revolution seems to be utopic for some people. It´s a broad range – from visionary to infeasible. Against the background of short-running resources some pessimists paint a depressing picture of an energy utopia, namely an energy dystopia.

At the Energiegespräche these questions have been discussed:

  • Where is the future of energy going to?
  • How will supply and distribution look like?
  • Who will be the winner? Who will be the losers?

Terms as energy saving, limited resources, sustainability or energy poverty are relatively young, distributional justice is becoming more and more important.
