Latest column: measuring energy consumption

Posted on

How do we measure energy consumption? If you ever see news stories about getting X% of energy from renewables or nuclear you should always ask how energy consumption is being defined. This is the topic of my latest column. Read it here. As expected there have been absolutely no comments so far, a change from my current average of around about 50. From experience unless people have the chance to make an anti-renewables or anti-nuclear rant then you will summon crickets. A sad reality.

Things are as they are, so I try to take the Martin Scorsese approach. Hot buttons cannot be pushed constantly, but must be on occasion.
