US Deputy Secretary of Energy, 1999-2001

There will also be technology changes in other areas that will affect the energy sector as well.

3D printing is the one of the things which will bring a dramatic change in manufacturing technology. The ability to make small parts, but also large-scale things such as whole panels for concept cars. It can be produced any-where. Well, change the global supply chains that we are used to and there will be imposed new power modes and plants locally and at small businesses. The electric vehicle area is also one that will change a lot. TESLA introduced the model S only 4years ago. In 4 years we have seen now every major car company in the world either introduce electric vehicles or announce plans to produce their electric vehicles.
