Energy challenges

No system is more closely tied to climate change and other forms of environmental damage than the energy system: the foundations of our society, in its current form, are based on the combustion of fossil fuels. The energy challenges dealt with in LUCID research are consequently great in nature and variety. Approaches to changes in the energy system studied examine, amongst others, the role of biofuels, small-scale and decentralised production, and potential problems with so-called sustainable energy options.
