## Notes - Exponential technologies are the ones that improve their price-performance basis by more than 10% per year for many decades. - It means that the price of exponential technologies will decay in some years, and the population can have them at home. - The most familiar exponential technologies follow [Moore's law](/zettel/moore-s-law). - Other examples of exponential technologies are batteries for renewables, or solar power generation, which have an 18% to 20% annual improvement. - Diesel engines or electricity aren't exponential technologies because, at the turn of the 20th century, they had an improvement of 1% to 3% per annum. ## References - [James Currier.
