'Peak Oil' has changed the perception of fuel availability forever.


Now, understanding "The Question" is critical to "The Solution" and often misunderstood by many.


As regions and nations turn to alternative sources of fuel to meet 'Local Fuel Security' requirements and demands for the future. ISSS help map the 'Way Points' for their individual journeys.


'Assumption' and 'Dependency' in future solutions can often lead to high risk.


ISSS "Understanding the Question"

Recent years and months have seen increasing attention being paid to the issue of energy security. There are a number of concerns and fears such as (though not limited to):

  • The depletion of oil and other fossil fuels
  • Dependency on energy imports
  • Geopolitics – global terrorism, unstable dictatorships, instability of regional energy suppliers
  • Energy requirements in under-developed countries vs. rising demands from advancing developing countries India and China
  • Question of economic efficiency vs. global population growth
  • Climate change and environmental issues and risks
  • Alternative energy and renewable sources

Global risks and issues escalating conflict, mapped with energy insecurity, creates potential scenario for repeating historic errors.


Within the ISSS, the board members have extensive experience in alternative, renewable, sustainable fuel sources. Subsequently, the ISSS has studied and created local fuel security models for local communities in Sweden, with combination consideration of environment, including but not limited to; agricultural over-flow (‘crops for fuel’), dual fuel vehicle uptake, local authority services, critical infrastructure, bio-mass leakage, bio-mass ‘grab’ (bio-fuel competition for substrate). Peak-oil, economic trends & forecasts, consumption trends & forecasts and crisis management demand & forecasts, bordering communities and disaster scenario (military priority).


The ISSS continue to work with Local Fuel Security programs within municipalities and communities throughout the ISSS 2014 - 2020 Program.
