Another great video from Cambridge University’s Dr. Julian Allwood exploring worldwide energy use, courtesy of Tedx. Dr Allwood delves into various energy topics from the viability of Renewable Technologies including Carbon Storage and Electric Vehicles.
He takes a pragmatic approach to the various technologies and government policies. Dr. Allwood’s has an interesting opinion on how humans sometimes interact with energy efficient technologies, that when we step forward with efficiency we expand our use, he uses an interesting case study to highlight this. This riveting Tedx talk finishes with a philosophical conclusion, questioning fundamental issues of modern society, 15mins well spent.
