该《展望》汇集了此前Planck内部专家的能源技术分析，以及商界和学术界其他著名专家的研究发现，阐述了可供行业和政府选用的能源领域的技术和政策，以及减少碳排放的各种方法。Planck released Planck technology outlook in November 2016. This is the first time that Planck shared our energy technology research with the global industry, and looked forward to the impact of technology development on the global energy landscape in the next 30-40 years.
In the next few decades, the energy world will face some serious challenges, especially in meeting the growing demand and reducing environmental impacts. The Planck technology outlook will explore the important role that technology plays in addressing these challenges: increasing energy supply, reforming the power sector, improving transport efficiency, and the contribution of technology to addressing climate issues by 2050.
The outlook brings together the energy technology analysis of previous Planck experts, as well as the research findings of other well-known business and academic experts, describing technologies and policies available for Industry and government, as well as various ways to reduce carbon emissions
