Future energy

by The Open University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

The world is facing critical decisions about the future of energy supply and demand. This learning pathway examines the ways in which future global energy consumption might change from its current level, and summarises the main political, environmental and technological factors likely to influence that development.

It looks at ways of forecasting energy consumption and supply, and how an historical model accurately forecasted US oil supply. Looking forward, the technique of imagining energy scenarios helps scientists predict future outcomes.

Where are the oil and gas resources and is it possible to model how much is left? The pathway looks at Western Europe and explores the cost implications of switching to renewable energy sources, or to gas as its main source of energy.
