Energy is the central environmental issue - and it is a lens through which all the others can be viewed.

Since Feb 2010 I have had a part-time job tutoring for the Open University, initally on the module Energy for a sustainable future. It was a highly inter-disciplinary course which covered scientific, technical, economic, (and even some psychological) aspects of:

  • Conventional generating systems
  • Renewable systems
  • Transport energy
  • Building

I tutored 3 presentations of energy for a sustainable future which has recently been updated by the modules energy and sustainability (for which I authored some of the auxiliary study materials) and Renewable energy.
