A 21st Century Roadmap: The Future of Infrastructure A 21st Century Roadmap: The Future of Infrastructure Presentation Transcript

  • A21 stCentury Roadmap:The Future of Infrastructure Presented by: Garry Golden
  • ConfrontingConstraintsFuel Production,‘Grid’ Dynamics& Limits to ‘Go’
  • Peak Production ofConventional Oil
  • Critical Assumption #1: Oil Field Discovery
  • Critical Assumption #2: Geopolitical Stability
  • Critical Assumption #3: Non-Conventional Growth
  • 21st Century Challenges‘The Grid’Critical Assumptions Bigger Smarter Plugging In Is Better is Better Matters
  • 21st Century ChallengesMobilityCritical AssumptionsHuman Transit OwnershipBehavior is Better Matters
  • 21st Century VisionEnablingInnovation
  • Incremental & Transformational Changes to Infrastructure Incremental Innovation Within an Era versus Transformational Innovation Across New Eras
  • ?Performance over time Plateau of ChangeS-Curve Shape of ‘Mainstreaming’‘Major’ & ‘Minor’ Eras Disruptions Rapid Change lead to Next Era!!! ‘Accelerating’ Slow Change ‘Emerging’
  • Eras of Planes /RocketsMobility Cars Rail Boats What is next? •Autonomous Vehicles Human / Animals •Sub-orbital
  • Monitoring Slow Change Phase of Development 2050 ‘Driver to Captain’ Software Supported Systems 2025 20202004 2007 2010 2015
  • Eras of SiliconManufacturing Plastics Copper Bronze Iron-Steel What is next? Clay •Carbon Materials Stone Wood (Nanoscale) •Biomaterials
  • Functionalization: 2050 Active NanostructuresCharacterization: Functionalization:Passive Nanostructures Passive Nanostructures 2030 2025 1990 2009 2010
  • 21st Century Nano-Materials for EnergyNanoparticles Nanotubes Nanosheets (Graphene) Production – Transmission – Storage - Management – Fuel Storage – Conversion
  • Social MediaEras ofCommunication Broadcast Media Machine-to- One-to-One Machine ‘M2M’
  • ‘Minor’ Eras of Communication Learning Systems Cloud Computing Linked ‘Smart’ Data Pre-’Web’ Web 1.0 Web 2.0 Web 3.0 Broadcast Era Info Portal Social Web Services
  • The ‘Era’ Evolution of Data’s Value Chain Prescriptive What should happen? Predictive What might happen? Descriptive What has happened?
  • Energy Systems Future TransportationPresent & Mobility
  • Eras for Energy & Fuels Market $500 M Investment ‘Extracting’ Reserves ‘Growing’ Energy (Geosciences) (Biosciences/Materials Design)
  • Eras for Power Generation Bigger… Smarter… Integrated…Central Power Plants & Fuel Markets Stranded…
  • Rise (and Return) of Distributed Power Generation Distributed Power Generation Infrastructure-based Natural Gas
  • Every Object is a Power Plant?Rise (and Return) of Distributed Power GenerationPortable Fuels & Micro Energy
  • Fuel Cells 101 Electrochemical Device Magic Material (Hydrogen plus Oxygen = Energy) (Membrane Electrode Assembly)
  • Market Signals of Smart & Distributed Transitions 2050 2030 2020 2015 2008 2009 2010
  • Possible Future:Consumers start to ‘unplug’ as devices and appliancescontain their own embedded power systems? ‘Unplugging’ Power Plants ‘Retail Packets’ Beyond the Grid $1 $10 Solid Hydrogen / $100 $1000 Liquid Fuels
  • A More Likely & Favorable Future for UtilitiesDistributed Power = Micro Grids
  • Questions &Discussion Garry Golden http://www.garrygolden.net garrygolden@gmail.com 347-463-7412
  • 2010Year OneInfrastructure Implications:Electrification of World’s Auto Fleet
  • What powers an ‘electric’ car?A. Batteries B. Hydrogen C. Capacitors Fuel Cells
  • Infrastructure: Electricity-Hydrogen‘Plug in’ Battery EVs Integrated Fuel cell EVs •Utility Controlled •Energy Majors (‘Big Oil’) •Fixed Access points •Portable ‘Molecule’ Fuels spectrum: •Fleet Vehicles NatGas, Biofuels, H2 (Solid, Gas, Liquid) •Mass Markets
  • Why are they going ‘electric’? A. Changing B. Changing Climate Business Models
  • Vehicle Electrification Carbon Footprint Manufacturing Footprint
  • 2000s ‘Plateau’ 1950-90s Era of ‘Accelerating’ Combustion Engine 1920s‘Emerging’
  • Global Auto Industry Imperative:Transform Manufacturing
  • EV Manufacturing / After MarketBusiness Case for Electric AgeAutomakers Driver Experience•Lower Manufacturing cost •Telematics / Driver Support (Wheel based motors) (Software-Services) (Drive by Wire) •Lower Operating Cost
  • Radicals: Open Source Hardware & Low Volume Builds ‘Mass Assembly’ to ‘Mass Customization’
  • 21st Century ‘Fleets’ for Transit & On-Demand SolutionsBusiness Model Innovations• Intermodal Solutions ‘Last Mile’ Connections• Urban On-Demand Point to Point Service New Fleet Vision for Transit• Smaller Highway Footprint Transforming Capacity
  • Questions &Discussion Garry Golden http://www.garrygolden.net garrygolden@gmail.com 347-463-7412
  • Infrastructure vs Infrastructure ExperienceEngineering User ExperienceTransportation (Transit) Software forInformation Services Human PerformanceMore Social & Transparent ‘Growing with Flow’
  • Infrastructure ExperienceWeb-oriented Infrastructure Experience Anonymous Web …. to a more Social Web 1998 2008
  • While on the road, only my friends know that I’m a dog! Civic Culture adapting toNetworked Infrastructure on the go…
  • Infrastructure ExperienceWhat We Don’t Know About Infrastructure Use Simulated vs ‘Natural Data’
  • How do we enable new behavior based on data-driven transportation experiences and business models? DIKW SpectrumData – Information – Knowledge – Wisdom
  • Changing Infrastructure Behavior via “Gaming Mechanics”•Rules & Rewards•Challenges & Goals•Badges & Recognition (Stages of Mastery)•Reputation Management•Teamwork & StrategyGoal: Advance from Novice to Master Level Skills
  • Teaching Infrastructure Systems via Gaming Mechanics User Base •80 million Monthly •30 million Daily Demographic •Female (35-50 years old)
  • Changing Behavior & Infrastructure Optimization via Gaming Mechanics Leaderboards, Points, and Status
  • Plausible Future:Every infrastructure component & user has a ranking & reputation based on performance?A Transparent & Accountable ‘Pay as you…’ World?
