Thank you

Your recommendation has been sent to your librarian.

The thrust of this chapter has been to show that, from an engineering perspective, the transition from an unsustainable global economy dependent on fossil fuels, to a sustainable one powered by renewables, is not impossible, and that technologies such as electromagnetic levitation and superconduction will form an important part of the drive to minimise energy wastage in a power constrained world.
