Energy Shift: Game-Changing Rules for Fueling the Future

Energy Shift book coverThe shift to alternative energy technologies, decarbonizing electric power, hybrids and electric cars, the volatility in oil, gas and other energy commodity prices, energy security, and climate change have been on every business executive's mind. We have tried to make this book a one-stop resource for executives and policy makers who require a reliable, assessable guide to the major issues surrounding energy.

Supported by the latest studies, articles, and research conducted by Booz & Company, Energy Shift: Game-Changing Rules for Fueling the Future, is a visual guide that puts the most up-to date information on the future of energy in a handy, easy-to-use format. Authors Eric Spiegel and Neil McArthur provide essential knowledge on the forces shaping the energy industry, alongside practical advice for making the tough decisions that leaders in all walks of life will face.

Energy Shift helps you distinguish media-driven myths and misconceptions from the actual effects the energy crisis will have on a variety of businesses and organizations — from the smallest local enterprise to the largest multinational. Additionally, this forward-thinking handbook discusses the new opportunities that will arise for investors, corporations, and governments in such areas as:

  • The Relentless Demand for Energy
  • Oil’s Production Plateau
  • Transportation: Tapering Off Oil
  • Coal’s Questionable Future
  • The Promise of Natural Gas
  • The Uncertain Path to Clean Energy
  • The Power Generation Puzzle

By 2030, the way the world uses energy will be massively transformed, and along the way there will be daunting challenges and abundant opportunities. The most savvy business leaders will be the ones already prepared to act, not react, using the information found in Energy Shift.
