Research and Markets: Energizing Our Future: Rational Choices for the 21st Century

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on January 25th, 2008

Energizing our Future surveys and analyzes in considerable depth the present and future economic and technical viability of oil, natural gas, coal, synthetic fuel, nuclear, hydrogen, solar, biomass, wind and less well-known potential energy sources in the context of real-world production, distribution, and environmental constraints. For example, the authors carefully and factually debunk the myth, perpetuated by Lovins, Rifkin and others that we are "running out of oil."

Author Information

Griffin Burgh, ALA, LEED, is a practicing architect with a long background in solar architecture and sustainable design. His interest in alternate energy has included the design of a low-speed electric car and a current consulting project on the Fisher Coachworks Advanced Technology Hybrid Bus. Griffin is also an adjunct research fellow at the University of Michigan Chemical Engineering Department, working with novel titanium dioxide nanomaterials that have applications in energy storage and solar energy.
