Imagine a world with too much energy, clean energy. How different would our human civilization be with fewer energy limitations - less risk of climate change, no peak oil, and more renewable ways to provide power to an exploding global population?

But, this is not our present scenario. Today's energy needs are met largely by high-carbon sources and inefficient technologies. But, is there a better way? How could we use the latest scientific knowledge to best prepare ourselves for a lower carbon, more electrified future?

To explore these questions, the Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI) assembled a multinational, interdisciplinary and multigenerational group in June 2011 for the Equinox Summit: Energy 2030. Together, these pioneering scientists, policy advisors, entrepreneurs and tomorrow's leaders took a fresh approach, focusing on what science and technology can deliver to tackle our global energy challenges.

Building on the initial outputs of their June collaborations, participants developed the Equinox Blueprint: Energy 2030 - a detailed view of the highest impact energy technologies, with a set of implementation strategies; a roadmap to a cleaner and more sustainable energy future.

Five technological strategies and implementation steps include:

1.Energy storage technologies to enable renewable electricity generation
2.Enhanced geothermal, tapping into the Earth's heat using techniques we've already mastered
3.Advanced nuclear reactors for enhanced safety, utilizing inexhaustible resources (recycled uranium, thorium, and high level wastes) to close the fuel cycle
4.Off-grid electrification using flexible solar cells and self-sustaining micro-grids
5.Smart cities and electric transport for a global future dominated by urban living

The Equinox Blueprint: Energy 2030, is now available for download here.
