A consideration of energy futures and energy service supply chains at a systemic level. Dynamic development of demand and supply of primary energy sources and key energy carriers will be considered first assuming continuation of current trends, and then with changes to current trends in order to satisfy constraints such as limiting carbon emissions and changing resource availability. Integrated analysis of spatially-distributed time-variable energy systems will also be addressed, with examples including generation, storage, and distribution of electricity and production of energy from biomass.
