I've just come across a book by a British scientist, and he's giving it away-PDF version that is, under a creative commons license.

Sustainable energy-without the hot air.

It is one of the most interesting books on energy I have seen in a while.

I would honestly recommend everyone in the IET, get a copy, and then we can really get a conversation going on energy security for the world.

The book was instrumental in getting its author appointed as Chief Scientist within DECC. Most of the book is now embodied in a model you can reach here http://2050-calculator-tool.de...1/primary_energy_chart
