How easy is it to get off our fossil fuel habit? Could Britain live on its own renewable? How does our current energy consumption compare with our sustainable energy options? Dr Alison Cooke will offer a straight-talking assessment of the engineering challenges involved, and discuss how to make energy plans that add up based on the IMechE UK 2050 Energy Plan which was presented in Copenhagen in September 2009 alongside 9 other countries. Dr Cooke is a Fellow of The Institution of Mechanical Engineers and Chair of the UK’s Future Climate Steering Group (based at the IMechE), an international project to mobilise engineers from over 10 developed and developing countries. She will describe progress and aspirations of the Future Climate project.
