Energy is widely recognised as the engine for economic growth and modern life. The way we live, construct, produce, eat and commute has a major bearing on energy, most of which is derived from coal, oil and natural gas. Fossil fuels are being consumed at a much faster rate than they can be replenished. If we continue to demand fossil fuels at 2006 rates, the reserves of oil, coal and gas will last a further 40, 200 and 70 years, respectively.
