Walt Patterson On Energy
My current project for Chatham House
and the Sussex Energy Group,
analyses 'Managing Energy: Rethinking The Fundamentals'. A series of Working Papers - WP1, 'Managing Energy Wrong',
WP2, 'Managing Energy Data', and WP3, 'Managing Energy Technology' - challenges
the conventional view of energy in society, and proposes a more promising vision.
They have led to an ever more radical perspective. A working paper published in November 2013,
Beyond The Fire Age, offers a preview of my latest book, now in preparation, entitled Beyond The Fire Age: What We Do, How We Do It,
How We Can Do Better. So 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'.
