But can renewable sources of energy ever be sufficient to provide modern societies with a decent quality of life?

Danny Chivers presents a compelling introduction to renewable technologies for non-technical readers (solar, wind, hydro, geothermal and ambient heat, wave and tidal, fuel crops, and energy from waste) and a roadmap to powering the world not just sustainably, but democratically.
