Professor George King, Manchester University physics department, explained how solar energy from its birth in the sun through its journey to earth can be harnessed and how we can store this solar energy when the sun isn’t shining. We had everything from atomic physics to the economics of different forms of renewable energy generation. A very topical talk considering the current concerns over global warming. Since the meeting, one of our members, Brian Bennett, has reminded me that a book George King referred to “Sustainable Energy – Without the Hot Air” is available to download from https://www.withouthotair.com/download.html , alternatively Brian, email@example.com , will lend you his copy of the book!
