energy: power to the 21st century
Abstract:This article reflects an analysis of the energy issues tackled in national foresight studies to date. The energy sector has not been explicitly mentioned in some of the studies but it is integrated in other sectors. What follows is a summary of the issues on which the different foresight studies are focused. The summary includes the most important topics affecting energy-related issues for the panel of experts of each country. The article shows, first, a group of general considerations specific for each country. It then shows the types of technologies which have been considered in each foresight study. Finally, before drawing conclusions, it provides a technology table from which it is possible to see which energy technologies have been considered as important in each country.
