Retrofutur: From the History of Energy Innovations to Retro-Tech
with Loic Rogard
The history of energy is far from continuous. It is full of fantastic innovations, of precursory devices that were not considered relevant or reliable in their time. They either did not find interested users or lacked a technical fix to make the system efficient. However, these forgotten inventions are perhaps able, today, to respond in a more favorable and unexpected way to the challenges of the coming world. This new writing on the history of energy and history of the invisibilized margin calls for an overall vision which allows for further phases of analysis and creation.
