“Third Industrial Revolution” that will change the way we work and live in the 21st century. In the coming era hundreds of millions of people will produce their own green in their homes, offices, and factories, and share it with each other using an “energy Internet,” just like we now create and share information online.
The Third Industrial Revolution infrastructure will create thousands of businesses and millions of jobs. This revolution will usher in a new economic age which will bring with it a fundamental reordering of human relationships; from hierarchical to lateral power.
