10th January 2005 – Energy Policy Studies

Adrian Bull is Head of Energy Policy Studies at BNFL, as well as being a committee member of the NW Branch of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. He led a discussion on 21st century energy needs – likely sources of renewable and non-renewable energy, including nuclear energy; their contribution to the UK’s energy requirements and the issues that arise from such an analysis like: “Do we have enough?”, “Is it secure?” and “How long will it last?”.

Some of the attendees had installed home made renewable energy sources in their homes but agreed we have no option but nuclear in the short term until technology solves the energy problems with, say, fusion power.
