Energy and Climate

While we can make buildings more energy efficient, they still need to be heated and supplied with power and as such, the energy supply infrastructure (thermal, electrical) need to be evolved over time to meet energy needs in a low impact, sustainable manner.  The majority of climate and air pollutant emissions come from burning energy and the global community has settled on targets of reduction of 80% by 2050 – requiring a steady reduction of emissions decade by decade to achieve that goal.

The following offer some resources to explore regarding principles and methods of creating sustainable energy systems and addressing climate emissions.
