Keeping the Lights On





by Walt Patterson

In , Walt Patterson starts from a simple premise: that we are making a mess of energy, and this is endangering the planet. Using accessible, everyday language Patterson describes how we could do much better, outlining a different way to think about energy, what we want from it and how we get it.

Drawing on over 35 years of work from one of the leading voices in the field, explains how we could go about improving energy security and services while reducing costs and vulnerability, globally and rapidly. The book discusses the timely and heated debates surrounding energy and power, and emphasizes that electricity is about infrastructure; we have to stop treating it as a commodity. The result is a comprehensive introduction to the most important issues, providing the reader with innovative and expert ideas and solutions.

"What can I say? Clearly thought out, simply written, and straight to the heart of the major issues in energy today. I can’t think of anyone else who could bring together the technology, the economics, and the basic human relationship with energy that Walt has here. This is really great stuff."
Ronan Palmer, chief economist, UK Environment Agency
