When it comes to the future of energy, futurist Jack Uldrich says, “The nature of how power is being produced, distributed and consumed is changing and so must those who run the industry.”

“The world is going to change tomorrow--this is certain,” says Uldrich. “If people don’t pick up on these subtle changes, they’ll end up locked up, inflexible and potentially out of business. Technology is going to require the energy industry to be nimble and adaptable in order to steer themselves into the future.”

Uldrich is slated to address the National Fluid Power Association’s Annual Conference in San Diego tomorrow, March 12th. According the NFPA, “Fluid power is a term describing hydraulics and pneumatics technologies. Fluid power has the highest power density of all conventional power- transmission technologies.”

Uldrich will deliver his keynote, “The Big AHA: How to Future-Proof Yourself Against Tomorrow's Trends, Today.” He will discuss a variety of technological advancements that will impact the fluid power industry such as wearable technology that will to control and automate smart homes to optimize energy efficiency, 3-D manufacturing, mobile computing which will reduce the need for physical stores, reducing real estate and energy costs, nanotechnology, robotics, sensors, and supercomputers.
