Niedrige Ölpreise erschüttern die Weltwirtschaft. Der renommierte Energieexperte Dieter Helm erklärt, warum diese und besonders technologische Veränderungen unzweifelhaft ankündigen, dass das Zeitalter der fossilen Brennstoffe zu Ende geht. In seinem neuen provokativen Buch weist er nach, dass neue Technologien wie die Nanotechnologie die Nachfrage nach Öl, Gas und Kohle unaufhaltsam reduzieren – und dies schneller und effektiver als das in den Entscheidungszentren von Politik und Wirtschaft gedacht wird. Energiekonzerne und Erdöl exportierende Länder werden die Verlierer dieser Entwicklungen sein, während Staaten, die in neue Technologien investieren, als Sieger im geopolitischen Spiel dastehen könnten. Wie sollen Regierungen und Unternehmen reagieren? Dieter Helms Ratschläge sind radikal und überraschend, denn wir stehen am Beginn eines neuen Energiezeitalters. Mit einem Vorwort von Günther Oettinger.
