“The world has entered a period of volatility and transition - every choice that is made from here on will have an impact on what will happen in the near future.

Giant Gleaming Eggs Will Help Solve Urban Water, Energy And Waste Problems

Not too long ago, cities could be labeled strictly as takers: taking in food, water, energy and other resources, while dumping out mountains of garbage and oceans of polluted wastewater.

We can’t expect a reliable energy future without talking water

“It’s no secret that electricity generation requires substantial amounts of water”, writes, Kate Zerrenner, project manager with EDF’s US Climate and Energy program, “and different energy sources require varying amounts of water. Nor is it a surprise that Texas and other areas in the West and Southwest are in the midst of a persistent drought. Given these realities, it is surprising that water scarcity is largely absent from the debate over which energy sources are going to be the most reliable in our energy future.”

Changing Direction towards a New Energy Future

As the world transitions to a more sustainable energy future, the right decisions need to be made now to ensure that transition is as smooth as possible. In this speech, Shell Chairman Jorma Ollila discusses the important role that natural gas can play as an affordable, flexible energy source. He calls on policymakers to take a market approach to regulating CO2 to ensure all mitigation measures will be used, starting with those that are lowest cost and fastest to implement. He also talks about research Shell is conducting to understand the complex interrelationship between energy, water and food, and how we can be more efficient in managing them. - Speech given by Jorma Ollila, Chairman, Royal Dutch Shell plc, at the International Energy Agency Governing Board at Ministerial Level, October 18, 2011
