Energy Return on (Energy) Invested (EROI), Oil Prices, and Energy Transitions, Matthew Kuperus Heun (Calvin College) & Martin de Wit (publicerad av David Murphy, 15 Juni 2012
Slutsatserna i inlägget ovan: "One cannot take a smooth transition from oil to other forms of energy for granted. Our paper highlights four factors indicating that a smooth transition away from oil is unlikely: insufficient oil-sector technological development to overcome depletion, declining mark-up, a non-linear relationship between EROI and production costs, and the non-linear relationship between EROI and oil price. In fact, with EROI values tending downward below 10, the risk of significant increases in oil prices, all other factors constant, is very high."

"Significant transitions in energy technologies are not fast. Fouquet, in a study of previous energy transitions, indicates that, historically, the time-scale for diffusion to dominance for a new energy technology is on the order of three decades for the fastest transitions."
