Beyond incremental improvements in the energy system: A 9 billion people approach
ICT delivering 100 or 1000 times reductions through a smarter system and smarter ways to delivering services.
The 9 billion approach is an approach when the possibility to deliver services in a sustainable way is the reference point. E-books becomes a smart solution, newspapers/books less so. SUVs not possible, but smart transport systems and teleworking, old buildings and coal power not possible, but smart net producing buildings is a smart solution.
