Abstract

Predictive studies traditionally appeal to a new scientific result. What does determine the level of uncertainty of predictive research: the future period (time), future technologies (object) different from today’s solutions or the methodology for conducting predictive research (method)? The task of scientific and technological forecasting of energy development can be defined in several directions. Changes in frontier technologies can be identified. But it is possible to anticipate the emergence of technologies that define alternative approaches to the use of raw materials, generation and distribution of energy, which will help to dramatically reduce the negative impacts on environmental and social systems. Finally, emerging new markets, trends, and demand indicators can be identified.
