The Solar Energy Society 2009 David Hall Memorial Lecture

DOWN WITH FUEL !

Speaker: Dr Walt Patterson

Despite what you hear from every side, we don't need to use less energy. We need to use less fuel. Traditional 'energy policy' fosters ways to use more fuel. Real energy policy will foster ways to use less. Once we get that right, the renewable fuel - biomass - will come into its own, as an essential component of sustainable human energy systems.

Walt Patterson is Associate Fellow in the Energy, Environment and Development Programme at Chatham House in London, UK, and a Visiting Fellow at the University of Sussex. He is author of Keeping The Lights On: Towards Sustainable Electricity (Chatham House/Earthscan 2007), his thirteenth book, and hundreds of other publications, on nuclear power, coal technology, renewable energy, energy systems, energy policy and electricity. His current project for CH and the Sussex Energy Group is called 'Managing Energy: for climate and security'. Walt Patterson On Energy, <www.waltpatterson.org>, is an online archive of his writing since 1970.
