Walt Patterson On Energy


If you're visiting us for the first time, Home is a good place to start. Title and Welcome will bring you back here.

The Hoffmann Centre for Sustainable Resource Economy at Chatham House has now published my paper on ´Redefining Electric Resources´, to follow my previous papers on ´The Electric Power Struggle´ and ´Non-tradeable resources and the global electricity transition´, the latter on the Chatham House website resourcetrade.earth. All three publications are what I call working papers, in preparation for what I hope will be my next book. Its provisional title is Living Cool: Taking The Heat Out Of What We Do.

On 6 February I gave a seminar about the book at the Sussex Energy Group at the University of Sussex, and returned to the theme on 13 August, addressing students from the Indian NTPC School of Business.

My latest book, Electricity Vs Fire: The Fight For Our Future, is now free to download here as an ebook or a PDF. The paperback is also available from Amazon, just £5.00 in the UK or $7.50 in the US, plus shipping. If you enjoy Electricity Vs Fire do please spread the word about it, perhaps review it on Amazon or indeed elsewhere, and let your friends know about it - particularly friends who find 'energy' and 'climate' boring. ('Energy' appears only halfway through the book, briefly, 'climate' not at all.) Indeed I'd also be pleased to hear from you. This work is continuing, and I greatly appreciate your interest.
