My current project for Chatham House
and the Sussex Energy Group,
is 'Managing Energy: Rethinking The Fundamentals'. After a series
of Working Papers challenging the conventional view
of energy in society, and proposing a more promising vision, the project is evolving
into a book which I am now writing,
entitled Beyond The Fire Age: What We Do, How We Do It, How We Can Do Better.
A working paper entitled 'Beyond The Fire Age',
published in November 2013, offers a preview, as does my column in
Modern Power Systems, January 2014.
In February 2014 at University College London I gave a seminar on the analysis, which you can see
here. On 13 May,
at the Deloitte annual Energy Conference in Washington DC, developing the analysis further,
I asked 'What Should Governments Do About Energy?'. On 24 June,
at the Energy Institute conference in London on 'Energy Systems', I called for us to move
'Beyond The Fire Economy', as you can see
The latest inexplicable resurgence of enthusiasm for fast breeder reactors prompted me
to dust off a report I wrote in 1984, entitled
'Super-Phenix: Ashes To Ashes?'.
With the invaluable help of Josep 'Pep' Puig of the
Grup de Cientifics i Tècnics per un Futur No Nuclear in Barcelona,
we are now able to offer Spanish readers a download of the
first edition of my book Nuclear Power in Spanish.
My most recent book, Keeping The Lights On: Towards Sustainable Electricity, is also available in paperback.
