And why there will be blackouts – Prof Averil Macdonald

10 January @ 14:30 - 16:00

At a time when we all recognise that fossil fuel energy production is harming the planet and that we need to change to cleaner forms of energy delivery, we are suddenly faced with the possibility of power cuts. What’s going on? In this talk I will explore the underlying issues within the UK power system and discuss how to get from where we are to where we need to be – and it’s not going to be easy!

If you are not a member of the Science and Technology group you are welcome to attend as a guest for the small fee of £3 (or you can become a full member for £12).
