A unique opportunity to access training directly from energy experts across Durham University departments in an intensive week of teaching.
This four and a half day course brings together leading experts to assess today’s energy challenges in different contexts. From global geo-histories of energy and energy transiGons to human ecobiology and resource engineering, we look at energy from a range of different perspectives. With presentations from leading experts at Durham University, this will effectively be a series of masterclasses in energy contexts and challenges.
• setting the agenda: what glaciology tells us about climate change;
• Global geo-histories of energy using histories of energy to highlight changing concepts of
natural and ‘unnatural’ energy;
• Understanding past transitions – histories and legacies of coal;
• Unconventional energy sources (including fracking);
• Renewable energy technologies: Solar futures, Wind power, geothermal energy, carbon
• Understanding the grid – technical and commercial issues;
• Contemporary political economies of energy, global political issues, energy as a geopolitical
tool, energy wars and energy transitions;
