For most of the past 50 years, our energy systems have been dominated by fossil fuels, traditional biomass, hydropower and nuclear energy. In the future we expect renewable energy sources to contribute a rising share of total energy, but before we take a closer look at how renewables compare, let’s first see how fossil fuels stack up.

The book also makes it easy to understand why certain political choices have caused the wrong energy sector choices in the years after the second world war, and why it is so important that we are not blinded by only relying on renewable energy sources to combat the ongoing climate change/5.Energy Choices: Opportunities to Make Wise Decisions for a Sustainable Future.
