Sustainable energy

There is no authoritative definition of what sustainable energy is.
We are of the opinion, that the following criteria must be used when we shall judge the sustainability of energy.
Access to energy at present
In the industrialised world we have today access to energy in sufficient quantities ad at prices, which makes us able to maintain a social acceptable living standard. At this area we therefore have sustainable energy. Read more here.
Access to energy in the future
To day the main part of our energy supply are based on fossil energy, like oil, gas and coal. These fuels are not available in indefinitely quantities. With raising population, new consumers and new requirements we can foresee a future where the supply of fossil fuels will be unable to cover the need of energy. Our energy supply will therefore not be based on sustainable energy. Read more here.
Energy and environment
The conversion of energy involves the transformation of the carrier of energy into new substances. Example of this is the burning of fossil fuels, where some parts of these are transformed in CO2. Sustainable energy assumes that the natural processes in the environment can convert or absorbed theses new substances. Else these substances will be accumulated as waste products in the environment and pose a threat against our future living conditions. Read more here.

Global distribution of energy

The majority of people in the developing world have not adequate access to energy enabling them to uphold a socially acceptable living standard. They have neither access to safe and clean energy. There is in this way no global equal distribution of energy and therefore no global sustainable energy. Read more here.
