Sustainability and the importance of human coexistence

Klaus Töpfer, former Federal Minister: "Energy revolution is preventive peace policy. Whether nine billion people can live together peacefully in the world, is decided by the energy issue. Energy means development and prosperity. If everyone has enough to live on, there should be no more economic conflicts."


Sustainability in 2040

Jeremy Rifkin, future researcher: "In a quarter of a century, a large part of humanity, perhaps more than a billion people, will produce its own energy and will share it via the Internet of things - as billions of people with information do today. It took 24 years for 40 percent of humanity to use and provide virtual goods via the World Wide Web. Take this same amount of time again, and many more will be able to also create and share energy."
