Renewable Energy - history-in-the-making, Edinburgh

About this event

It is difficult for the peoples of modern times to think of human life without hydrocarbons.

However, Gridwatch nerds (www.gridwatch.templar.co.uk) have recently got used to the novelty of wind sometimes supplying more of the UK's electricity than coal, gas or nuclear. We read of the "precipitous drop in the price of electricity from offshore wind" and that "China is cementing its global dominance of renewable energy".

From his work at Artemis Intelligent Power, and background at the University of Edinburgh, Jamie Taylor will delve into the history of engineering for wind and wave energy and how the technology that evolved to meet these challenges has wider application.
