“This country has made some legal commitments: 15% of our energy from renewable sources by 2020, 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Is this even possible? And what would it mean? This talk concentrates on new work related to the 2020 renewables target, and will attempt to demonstrate that the target is both achievable and desirable.

It will assert that while there are issues of sustainability connected with the transformation of our energy system, the sustainability problems with not doing it are much worse. The role of government in making this happen will be discussed.”
