Energy Conversations: Should we be storing carbon, energy or nuclear waste underground?
Wednesday 9 November, 6.30pm
As we move towards a low carbon energy infrastructure we will be faced by numerous technology choices. Should we follow Germany and Japan to decommission our nuclear power plants and, if so, should we use carbon capture and storage to make the most of our fossil fuel reserves? What about our need for heat and power when the wind stops? Technologists, policy makers and environmental experts will subject us to the low carbon infrastructure conundrum and we’ll vote on the best approach for Britain.
