Walt Patterson On Energy


If you're visiting us for the first time, Home is a good place to start. Title and Welcome will bring you back here.

The Hoffmann Centre for Sustainable Resource Economy at Chatham House has now published my paper on ´The Electric Power Struggle´. The Chatham House website resourcetrade.earth has published my paper on ´Non-tradeable resources and the global electricity transition´. Both publications are what I call working papers, in preparation for what I hope will be my next book. Its provisional title is Living Cool: Taking The Heat Out Of What We Do. Wish me luck and watch this space.

On 31 January 2018 I gave a keynote at the Irish Renewable Energy Summit in Dublin, on ¨The Geopolitics of Renewable Energy¨. On 15 November 2017 I spoke at a Chatham House briefing on the same topic. You can listen to the entire briefing here. The topic is rising rapidly up the agenda.

My latest book, Electricity Vs Fire: The Fight For Our Future, is now free to download here as an ebook or a PDF. The paperback is also available from Amazon, just £5.00 in the UK or $7.50 in the US, plus shipping. If you enjoy Electricity Vs Fire do please spread the word about it, perhaps review it on Amazon or indeed elsewhere, and let your friends know about it - particularly friends who find 'energy' and 'climate' boring. ('Energy' appears only halfway through the book, briefly, 'climate' not at all.) Indeed I'd also be pleased to hear from you. This work is continuing, and I greatly appreciate your interest.
