Musk at ONS in 2014
“The world could be powered many times over if you had enough battery capacity to pair with it. Many times over. The amount of energy reaching the earth from the sun is tremendous.”
The quote is from 2014 when Elon Musk last visited ONS in Stavanger. His predictions on the importance of solar power, batteries and depleting fossil resources have in many ways proven true.
Lately, Musk’s effort with the Starlight satellite system in Ukraine, has brought communication, energy security and technology to the very top of the global agenda.
New energy situation
Both batteries, solar energy and other low carbon and renewable energy sources will be presented and discussed at ONS 2022 – and more than ever before. But not disconnected from the energy security situation and the work to reduce dependance on Russian gas.
At ONS 2014 Musk warned the oil and gas industry of the depleting fossil resources and compared the companies only focusing on fossil fuels to being in a room slowly running out of oxygen. But after the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the changes in the European energy market, he tweeted the following.
“Hate to say it, but we need to increase oil & gas output immediately.”
Musk will share his thoughts at the opening session of the ONS Conference 29 August in Stavanger.
