Managing Energy: Rethinking The Fundamentals




My long-running project for Chatham House and the Sussex Energy Group, is 'Managing Energy: Rethinking The Fundamentals'. Managing energy worldwide is creating serious problems both locally and globally, for land and water use, air quality, climate and security. We urgently need to rethink what we are doing with energy, and how and why we are doing it. We know that we can do much better - but only if we make significant changes in institutions, business and finance.

A series of Working Papers, WP1, 'Managing Energy Wrong', WP2, 'Managing Energy Data', and WP3, 'Managing Energy Technology' intended to be read in sequence, challenge the conventional view of energy in society, and propose a more promising vision. What was to have been WP4, 'Managing Energy Business', became a further working paper entitled 'Beyond The Fire Age', published November 2013.

More articles and speeches followed, until and since I at last published my latest book, Electricity Vs Fire: The Fight For Our Future,
