Future Aviation Fuel Efficiency and Climate Change - how airlines will save fuel costs and carbon emissions. Role of biofuels in aviation

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Travel Keynotes, Auto, Rail, Aviation

Aviation produces up to 5% of national carbon emissions in countries like the UK, growing every year  - 2% globally.  However, because of the relative impact of vapour trails, cirrhus cloud formation and other factors, it is likely that this 2% represents 3.5% - 5% of the total human impact of global warming.  Many aircraft flying today were made over 25 years ago and waste fuel. Simple steps can be taken to improve fuel efficiency in older planes – by as much as 7%.

Electric Cars impact on Future of Global Warming - Futurist keynote speaker on Future of the Auto Industry

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Travel Keynotes, Auto, Rail, Aviation

Futurist keynote speaker on the future of the auto industry.

The most important way to reduce motoring costs, reduce carbon use in transport, improve air quality and reduce global warming. City cars costing 1p per mile in electricity, range 200 miles. Ultra-cheap, safe, vehicles with zero emissions, which can be easily customised. Burning fuel in a small, mobile engine is inefficient compared to industrial power generators. If the electricity used is generated from wind, solar, waves, tide or nuclear fuel then electric cars have zero emissions. Either way, air quality improves dramatically in cities. 

Written in 2009 - you can see for yourself how accurate the forecast was.

Energy Saving in Shipping Industry - Future of Freight - Logistics and Supply Chains Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Travel Keynotes, Auto, Rail, Aviation

Keynote speaker on logistics and supply chains.

90% of all goods ranging from oil, gas, coal, and grains to electronic items, are carried each year by over 80,000 merchant ships larger than 2000 tons.  It’s the equivalent of shipping 1000 tons of products over 30 billion miles a year and results in 5% of all carbon emissions each year.  We can easily save at least 50% of all shipping energy costs – equivalent to 2.5% of all global carbon use.  Start by slowing container ships down from 24 knots to 20 knots to save up to 40% of fuel costs. Need a world-class keynote speaker on shipping, logistics and supply chains?

Future of Travel Industry, Tourism, Hotels, Hospitality and Business Travel - Futurist keynote speaker SLIDES

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Travel Keynotes, Auto, Rail, Aviation

Keynote on future travel industry trends for American Express / TAP in Moscow, by Patrick Dixon, conference speaker. Future of hotels, airlines and travel agents – innovation in the travel industry. Future of business travel and leisure travel. Travel industry continues to be vulnerable to major shocks – politically, global economy, environment or other factors ranging from volcanic eruptions to the Arab Spring. Strategies of travel companies and global corporations are being overtaken by events. Impact of energy prices on future of aviation and global travel. Expect spectacular growth of aviation and rail travel in emerging economies such as China and India. The irresistible human desire to travel, explore, and gain new experiences will underpin consistent global growth in travel and tourism, despite new carbon and aviation taxes. Globalisation will also continue to force executives to sacrifice home life for travel, despite growth of teleworking and virtual teams. Business travel will grow every year over the next 20-30 years, powered by growth in emerging markets, while travel within the EU and the US will remain relatively static. Russia internal and international air travel will also grow rapidly. Asia will represent more than 40% of the global economy in Purchasing Power Parity by 2015. China travel bookings are already worth more than $100bn a year of which $15bn was booked online in 2012 – up 500% on 2008 figures. Expect huge changes in how people are organizing their own travel. What is travel really about? Business travel is dominated by one word – not economics or saving money, but by the same issue which is driving leisure travel. One single word is influencing all of human history. That word is emotion: related to passions, desires to breathe the same air as the people we work with or talk to. That is why audiences don’t like listening to keynote conference speakers on a video relay. Travel is about building trust with business colleagues. Emotion is about understanding local cultural context, about relating to customers in a deep way. It is true that videoconferencing is growing 20% a year but not enough to curtail business travel. Most people do not enjoy video conferencing and prefer to talk on the phone – unless video is between family members. In the workplace, most people are relatively uncomfortable to perform in front of a camera. Expect that to change, but the fundamental need for human relationships will drive travel. It is ironic that most people have better technology at home and faster bandwidth, than they do at work. They also have better experiences online with things like travel tools – using personal Apps like Tripit which reports with SMS, diary updates and so on with live updates of flight delays, alternative routing suggestions. Virtual travel assistants are a big growth
