Perspectives on a Sustainable Energy Future

by Professor Andy Heyes, Head of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow

Professor Heyes will consider how important an abundant energy supply is to just about every facet of modern life and will discuss how economic development has gone hand in hand with developments in energy technology. He will then go on the discuss the challenges we face maintaining our current high standard of living in the face of finite and increasingly expensive resources and the adverse effect current energy technology has on the environment. The talk concludes with a call to action as Professor Heyes presents an upbeat vision of a sustainable and prosperous future in which we can simultaneously save the planet and keep our lights on.
