The Hydrogen Economy: preparing the world for a new energy era and the third industrial revolution

Ralph Miliband Programme Global Risks and Politics in the 21st Century lecture

This lecture critically examines the fossil fuel era and its consequences for industrial civilisation. It explores the nexus of politics, society and business and the massive potential for industry and capital investment. It also considers the future of renewable energy and the hydrogen economy, and how an integrated infrastructure and energy regime can be created in Europe.

Jeremy Rifkin is founder and president of the Foundation on Economic Trends in Washington DC. He is an economist, writer and activist.

The next lecture in the series takes place on Tuesday 22 May and is entitled ‘The Challenge of Affluence: self-control, well-being and future shock’.
