Energy Change

Changes to the systems of energy are coming - whether we like it or not.

Readiness for Energy Change

The College of Global Change is asking if we are ready for Energy Change, whether we are prepared for the scope and range of the changes that are coming in energy.

Surveys are being conducted into opinions and views about changes in energy systems, taking care to avoid asking respondents if they are "doing their bit" to save energy.

Why do the energy systems need to change ?

New energy systems need to be built because old ones need to be shut down. And despite the problems in the global economy, the new energy systems need to be paid for.
