Internet technology and renewable energy are coming together to produce the ‘Third Industrial Revolution.’ Everyone will be producing their own renewable energy in homes, offices, and factories. It is anticipated that the power of the internet will allow sharing energy with each other in the same way as we use social media for communication.
The next decade will see the UK’s buildings in all our towns and cities become carbon sufficient to address the decreasing sources of unsustainable fossil fuel resources. This means that small and medium businesses can begin to rely on their own energy locally and distribute to each other.
Jeremy Rifkin, internationally recognised adviser, author and lecturer on economic and environmental issues shares his strategy for the Third Industrial Revolution in the video blog on our home page.
He describes how the five-pillars of the Third Industrial Revolution will create thousands of new businesses and hundreds of millions of jobs.
