Default 100% Electric Transportation by 2030 - Disruption to the Oil & Auto industries

Tony Seba is a Lecturer in Entrepreneurship, Disruption and Clean Energy at Stanford University. He is also the author of the book "Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation" in which he asserts that by 2030
  1. All new mass market vehicles will be electric
  2. All these vehicles will be autonomous (self-driving)
  3. up to 80% parking spaces and highways will be redundant
  4. Taxis as we know them will become obsolete
  5. The concept of car ownership will be obsolete
  6. Oil will be obsolete
  7. All new energy will be provided by solar and wind

His talk in 2014 explains the above concepts

If you watch this video, it will get you thinking that what appears to be very remote, could actually happen.

On a lighter vein, his description on the efficiency of the electric motor can been seen in this video showing the capabilities of the Tesla Model S in "Insane Mode"

Please share your thoughts

Another view to look at why the oil prices are heading south. With the sudden rise of disruptive cleaner energy technologies Saudi’s know that their energy dominance might not last long. Hence they are pumping hard to maintain market share as they will still be making money at $10/ barrel. In short Saudi’s want to cash in on the 267 Billions of barrels of crude at hand, when crude is fetching something. Which otherwise in future may never get extracted from ground due to environmental factors and lack of low/no demand.
