“Energy to me combines everything from geopolitics and how nations behave to technological innovation and entrepreneurship.  It’s a great window to look at the world…There are still plenty of risks out there.  One thing you learn…is that things do not stand still.”

 

 
— Daniel Yergin, American oil historian whose energy works include The Prize and The Quest.  Creating a cheap and reliable way to store energy generated through alternative methods such as wind and solar is the next area Yergin sees as a potential game changer for the energy sector.
