Abstract

The last several months have seen new attention being paid to alternative sources of energy, and to the area of energy efficiency in general. You can choose your own reason for taking an interest: reversing global warming, peak oil theory, escaping from OPEC’s control of prices, stopping the flow of oil revenues to terrorist organizations, creating new jobs, or more parochially just generating more funding for research. These are all good reasons, and while some of them appeal to certain people more than others, there are now few people living in developed countries who deny the need to move away from dependence on oil, if not all fossil fuels.
