In Fueling the Future Heintzman and Solomon present the world's leading energy thinkers -- Geoffrey Ballard, Len Bolger, David B. Brooks, Michael J. Brown, Peter Fairley, Avi Friedman, Susan Holtz, and more -- who apply their ingenuity to pressing questions such as: What happens when we run out of oil? What new energy technologies are available? Will hydrogen and the fuel cell be the next great revolution? Who are the current innovators and how can we implement their ideas?

Each thinker offers solutions for debate, discussion, and action. This is not pie in the sky science. These are practical solutions to real problems. There has never been a more urgent need for ingenuity and for a series of books like this.

This dynamic new series founded by Andrew Heintzman and Evan Solomon is called the Ingenuity Project. Heintzman and Solomon gathered the best and brightest minds to generate new solutions to the most pressing issues of our time. Fueling the Future is the first book in the series. The second is Feeding the Future.
