CSR Wire | Blue Sky Thinking for Sustainability

In John Elkington’s blog post on CSR Wire Talkbalk, he wrote about David Harding  on some the technologies he thought would produce solutions to climate change and energy use.  Mr. Harding donated £20 million to Cavendish Labs at Cambridge for blue sky research.  The lab has historically focused on fusion, superconductivity and nanofabrication.

“In 2100, the sources of energy on this planet will be either solar or fusion,” argues Professor Peter Littlewood, who heads the Cavendish Laboratory, “and the preferred means to transport and use energy will be electrical. The ‘magic’ technologies needed to deliver this new age and make them available to societies worldwide are: photovoltaics, electrical storage, refrigeration and lighting.”
