Energy World October 2019
Buildings are no longer simply consumers of energy, and local generation schemes are part of the future of urban energy. We cover these themes in five articles in this issue, starting with a view from UK Research and Innovation into local, low carbon energy networks.
Articles follow which examine barriers to improving building fabric, building integrated solar façades and the potential contributions of window films. The feature is completed by a piece that summarises views from energy professionals on making the energy transition work for consumers.
We then switch to the supply side. Could, asks the Nuclear Industry Association, newly proposed financing arrangements revive a UK sector that – construction at Hinkley Point C aside – has stumbled? At the other end of the nuclear cycle, we take a look at the decommissioning of Britain’s oldest Magnox nuclear power stations.
Further articles cover the little understood, but important, role for behaviour change in energy management, and the developing electricity generation scene across the 17,500 islands that make up Indonesia.
The usual international and UK news updates, plus two opinion pieces complete the October issue.
