Can European countries live on their own renewables?
What do the fundamental limits of physics say? How does our current energy consumption compare with our sustainable energy options? This talk will offer a assessment of the numbers, and discuss how to make energy plans that add up.
David MacKay FRS is a Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Cambridge. He studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge and then obtained his PhD in Computation and Neural Systems at the California Institute of Technology. His popular book, "Sustainable Energy - without the hot air", has been described as "a tour de force" (The Economist), "a must-read analysis" (Science magazine), and "this year's must-read book" (The Guardian).
He has recently been appointed the Chief Scientific Advisor to the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
