5 thoughts for us, the users, to disrupt energy.

Few days ago while on a ski lift in Colorado during a snowstorm, I found myself pondering about a central topic: How complex is the Human Being?

Going up and down the slopes, at below freezing temperatures, I was constantly transforming energy. So Energy is about us and how we use it, right? If so the global debate on Energy changes abruptly.

Let’s go back to basic science: the first law of thermodynamics, also known as Law of Conservation of Energy, states that “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; Energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another

If we estimate the impact on human beings of the first law of Thermodynamics, the analysis gets even more interesting.

Tesla Provocation

Allow me, at first, to engage you with what I call the “Tesla Provocation”. With the growth in demand for EV’s something incredible happened: two forms of Energy are being reconciled.

Modern mobility does not need to rely on a complete separate chain of Energy transformations (from oil extraction to gasoline refinement and distribution) but can be managed with an extension of the power we use at home. Now, car makers can control the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of their vehicles instead of leaving clients wondering about the “price at the pump”.

Furthermore, the integration of SolarCity aimed at offering to the EV owners the possibility of generating her/his own “fuel”
