Energy Security through Environmental Sustainability: the SECURE Project
AbstractBetween now and 2050, humanity must face a double problem: the growing scarcity of oil and the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. These “bathtub problems” cannot be considered independently as hydrocarbon scarcity paves the way to coal, while climate policies open the path to low carbon societies. Smart energy policies and associated international relations should combine the security and sustainability dimensions. Solving this already complicated riddle may appear an even harder task after the Fukushima disaster, which has spread worldwide serious doubts about the opportunity of relying on the only virtually carbon free, large scale energy generation technology currently commercially viable.
