Abstract and Keywords

For 100 years, states have put a major emphasis on energy security. This is about to change as a result of five revolutions: US shale gas, US shale oil, worldwide renewable growth, energy efficiency, and energy storage. The world is now facing an unlimited amount of energy and should restrain fossil fuels use to avoid undesirable climate changes. The power of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is becoming irrelevant as should, in the future, the concept of energy security. Energy security is still relevant for armies that need oil to power their tanks, ships, and aircrafts. But for how long?

Keywords: energy security, oil, gas, renewable, energy efficiency, energy storage
