Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Can Scotland can achieve an all-renewable electricity supply by 2020?

A lecture by Keith Barnham, Emeritus Professor of Physics, Imperial College London.

Author of The Burning Answer: a User’s Guide to the Solar Revolution (Weidenfeld and Nicholson 2014) and a member of Scientists for Global Responsibility, Keith has considered carefully how any country should respond to the Climate Challenge and to the momentous Paris Agreement, December 2015.

Drawing on the underlying physics of energy and informed by recent changes in supply mix in Germany and elsewhere, Keith will stimulate a discussion of interest to all who seek a positive way forward that responds to new opportunities now available.

He will then be joined by a panel of colleagues to discuss next steps, with opportunity for input from the audience.

This event is open to interested staff, students and members of the public. All welcome.

NB: Doors open at 5:30pm with the event starting promptly at 6pm.
