[PDF] Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation: How Silicon Valley Will Make Oil, Nuclear,
The industrial age of energy and transportation will be over by Maybe before. Exponentially improving technologies such as solar, electric vehicles, and autonomous self-driving cars will disrupt and sweep away the energy and transportation industries as we know it. The same Silicon Valley ecosystem that created bit-based technologies that have disrupted atom-based industries is now creating bit- and electron-based technologies that will disrupt atom-based energy industries. Clean Disruption projections based on technology cost curves, business model innovation as well as product innovation show that by - All new energy will be provided by solar or wind.

The BECCS plant will convert agricultural waste biomass, such as almond trees, into a renewable synthesis gas that will be mixed with oxygen in a combustor to generate electricity. By using biomass fuel that consumes CO2 over its lifetime to produce power and then safely and permanently storing the produced CO2, the process is designed to result in net-negative carbon emissions, effectively removing greenhouse gas from the atmosphere. The plant, when completed, is expected to remove about , tons of CO2 annually, which is equivalent to the emissions from electricity use of more than 65, U. The project is aligned with our focus on investments in low-carbon technology to enable commercial solutions. The completed facility will help improve air quality in the Central Valley by using approximately , tons of agricultural waste annually, in line with the recent California Air Resources Control Board plan to begin phasing out almost all agricultural burning in the Valley by The bioenergy technology is designed to operate without routine emissions of nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide and particulates from combustion produced by conventional biomass plants.

Natural gas is a fossil fuel, though the global warming emissions from its combustion are much lower than those from coal or oil. Natural gas emits 50 to 60 percent less carbon dioxide CO2 when combusted in a new, efficient natural gas power plant compared with emissions from a typical new coal plant [ 1 ]. The drilling and extraction of natural gas from wells and its transportation in pipelines results in the leakage of methane, primary component of natural gas that is 34 times stronger than CO2 at trapping heat over a year period and 86 times stronger over 20 years [ 3 ]. Whether natural gas has lower life cycle greenhouse gas emissions than coal and oil depends on the assumed leakage rate, the global warming potential of methane over different time frames, the energy conversion efficiency, and other factors [ 5 ].

Because domestic sources are unable to supply sufficient oil to satisfy the demands of the transportation and petrochemical industry sectors, the United States currently imports about 56 percent of its petroleum supply.
Climate change is the greatest challenge facing the United States—and the world—over the next decade and beyond.
