An overall view of the situation is given of energy transportation and storage today, with some historical trends and an attempt to project them into the future.

The importance of the properties of the fuel or energy form in determining the properties of the distribution system are analyzed.

Since what is consumed is not energy but negentropy, the possibility of transporting it, dissociated from energy in a technically acceptable system, is briefly described as a means for overcoming the problem of thermal pollution at the usage point.
