The World Energy Problem and How to Deal With It

The world energy problem is far from being a new one, but has never been so actual. The earth population is growing, as is the energy consumption of the earthians. Imagine what will happen if in the near future all Chinese and Indians will use as much as refrigerators, televisions, dish washers and cars as we do! This lecture gives a detailed overview of the world energy balance and hints at a solution: for our near future renewable energy will be more than just a luxury.
