Electric Blues looks at the future of energy consumption. Are we heading for an all-electric age? Can we afford to re-engineer Britain for the conversion from fossil fuel to ‘clean’ electricity? Now the incentives have gone out of the PV market, is it time to better appreciate heat as an important driver in our energy economy? Should we concentrate our efforts on energy efficiency and designing low energy buildings or is this too diffuse for policy to deal with? Or will we be continued to be seduced by the attraction of heat pumps, electric vehicles and other non-fossil fuel devices?
