  • The Global Innovation Index 2018 focused on the theme of ‘Energising the World with Innovation’. Energy demand is reaching unprecedented levels as a result of a growing world population, rapid urbanisation, and industrialisation. Higher levels of technological and non-technological innovation are required to meet this demand, both on the production side of the energy equation (alternative sources, smart grids, and new advanced energy storage technologies) and on the consumption side (smart cities, homes, and buildings; energy-efficient industries; and transport and future mobility). Innovation plays key roles in addressing both sides of that equation.

We are using a million years of fossil fuel every single year. That will inevitably run out, if not in our lifetime then in the lifetimes of some of our children?s children or their children?s children; anyway, far too soon to consider it anything but a dire prospect. The growth of fuel wars will grow and water wars will [come] soon - Melvyn Bragg, In Our Time newsletter, 15/06/06
