TEDxMadrid - Alexander Van de Putte - Givens and wildcards in the energy foresight

Alexander Van de Putte, Senior Director and Operating Officer at PFC Energy International and a member of PFC Energy's Executive Committee discusses how givens and wildcards can affect our future global energy needs. He discusses how Givens, which are defined as: low uncertainty with high impact events, such as climate change, demographics and hydrocarbon supply will impact our ability to produce energy. Wildcards are defined as events which are low probability, huge impact, and must be seen to be logical and explainable. The two Wildcards he proposes are the BRINKS (Brazil, Russia, Iraq, Nigeria and Kazakhstan) and nuclear energy. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
