    Tony Seba Keynote Topics

    Tony Seba explores the rapid technological advancements and market forces that are disrupting traditional energy and transportation systems. Seba argues that by 2030, clean energy sources such as solar and wind power will be cheaper and more widely available than fossil fuels, and electric and autonomous vehicles will dominate the transportation market. This "clean disruption" will have far-reaching impacts on industries, businesses, and governments, as well as on the environment and global energy markets. Seba discusses the drivers of this transformation, the potential benefits and challenges it presents, and the implications it has for the future of energy and transportation.

    Tony Seba discusses how companies and organizations can anticipate and lead market disruptions in an increasingly complex and rapidly changing business environment. Seba argues that traditional strategic planning approaches are no longer sufficient to navigate the challenges of disruption, and that organizations must be agile and innovative in order to stay ahead of the curve. He provides insights and strategies for identifying and leveraging disruptive technologies and trends, as well as for building organizational capabilities and resilience to withstand and benefit from disruption. Seba also discusses the role of leadership and culture in enabling organizations to adapt to and shape market disruptions.

    Tony Seba discusses the transformative impact that autonomous vehicles (AVs) will have on cities and urban life. Seba argues that the widespread adoption of AVs will lead to significant changes in the way cities are designed, used, and experienced. For example, AVs may reduce the need for parking lots and garages, freeing up space for other uses such as parks, playgrounds, and public gathering places. AVs may also change the way people move around cities, potentially reducing the need for personal car ownership and increasing the use of shared mobility services. Seba may explore the implications of these changes for cities and their residents, as well as the opportunities and challenges they present for urban planners, policy makers, and other stakeholders.

    Tony Seba discusses the disruptive potential of the Internet of Energy (IoE), a vision for a decentralized, digitalized, and decarbonized energy system. Seba argues that the IoE will revolutionize the way energy is produced, distributed, and consumed, enabling a more efficient, reliable, and sustainable energy system. He discusses the key technologies and trends driving the development of the IoE, such as distributed generation, storage, and smart grids, as well as the challenges and opportunities they present. Seba also explores the potential impacts of the IoE on energy markets, businesses, and consumers, and the role of policy, regulation, and other stakeholders in shaping the development of the IoE.
