Energy 2020: Decentralised energy

Benet Northcote, Greenpeace. The energy system we have today is incredibly wasteful, because energy is generated a long way from where it is used. That means that a huge amounts of heat is lost from power stations. Some electricity is lost in transmission and a large quantity is wasted in the home. People are not aware of how much energy they are wasting.

It’s the heat being wasted at the point of generation that we need to look at. The vision for 2020 – where microgenerators are on every home and CHP plants are used everywhere – is within our reach. We just need the will!

  1. I hadn’t thought about this before, but it makes perfect sense. Good to know it’s in our reach.
