While the semiconductor industry has contributed enormously to overall economic growth in the last 50 years, the coming decades will see IC innovation with much greater focus on "greener and leaner" applications. We will witness an evolution from low power for long battery life to low overall power consumption. We will see more technology development away from the path of Moore's law geared to better control and management of our energy resources and improved power generation and storage. Energy used per kilometer of travel will continue to reduce as new semiconductor technology brings greater efficiency to conventional transport, and enables radically new vehicle architectures.
