"Over the past 30 years, total energy consumption in Australia has more than doubled, while energy consumption per person has increased by almost 40%. How will Australia manage future increases in energy consumption when there is also a pressing need to reduce greenhouse emissions and slow down climate change? The country's energy needs will have to transition from diminishing and polluting non-renewable sources of energy to renewable sources. So what is the future of fossil fuels? Can the Mandatory Renewable Energy Target of 20% of Australia's energy supply by 2020 make a real difference? Topics in Our Energy Future include: carbon capture and storage; 'clean coal' technology; peak oil; nuclear power; boosting Australia's energy efficiency and productivity; and household energy-saving tips. The book also explores the major renewables in detail 7F 13 solar, wind, hydroelectricity, geothermal, bio-energy, wave energy, and the potential of hydrogen power."--Publisher's website.
