Energy transitions: a future without fossil energies is desirable, and it is eventually inevitable, but the road from today's overwhelmingly fossil-fueled civilization to a new global energy system based on efficient conversions of renewable flows will be neither fast nor cheap. Distinguished Professor and author Vaclav Smil explores technological transitions of past, present and future that are critical for understanding how to shift to a low carbon future.

Vaclav Smil presents as part of WGSI's Energy 2030 Summit (June 5-9, 2011).
