In days where smartphone and staying connected have become living necessities, we forget that there are natural resources that are equally important. In times where television, microwave, refrigeration, network connectivity have all become baseline requirement for living, we assume there will be endless supply of natural resources.
We are observing unprecedented droughts running throughout the world while some places are facing floods never seen before. We are waking up to the awareness that we need to take care of earth and leave it better for our children and the upcoming generations. Ask a kid growing up in India, my dad used to mention that fuel might not last another 40 years. Forty years hence we have seen a lot of changes and there is no clear alternative to fossil fuel and our dependence is only increasing.
Fossil fuel is a powerful economic resource that countries are frantically looking for new resources in unexplored areas of the world. It undoubtedly creates economic strength, jobs and ability to make difference in citizen’s lives. The consumption of fuel is steadily increasing with increasing population. Third world countries are bringing in a lot of additional vehicles on the road and in the process also try to move its economy upward.
As the need, dependency of fuel increases with the threat of depleting natural resources, it becomes imperative to improve efficiencies wherever and whenever possible. It should start from exploring all the way to the end users consuming the natural resource. To this effect, productivity and reduced down time directly means competitive edge and increased profitability which is fundamental concern across the board to enterprises.
