Walt Patterson On Energy

Recent work



My current project for Chatham House and the Sussex Energy Group, is 'Managing Energy: Rethinking The Fundamentals'. A series of Working Papers challenging the conventional view of energy in society, and proposing a more promising vision - WP1, 'Managing Energy Wrong', WP2, 'Managing Energy Data', and WP3, 'Managing Energy Technology' - are now available. What was to have been WP4, 'Managing Energy Business', has evolved into a full-length 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 November 2013, offers a preview.

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 Hispanic 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.
