Cambridge Climate Lecture Series 2018

15 February - 15 March 2018 – Cambridge, UK

Studying at Cambridge

 

Tribute to Prof. Sir David MacKay

The CCLS 2018 lectures will be occurring near to the second anniversary of David's death. With interests and achievements in fields ranging from neural networks to software for disabled users, and from information theory to energy policy, David stood out as a polymath.

Within the arena of climate change he made important contributions to developing the UK's energy policy through his time as chief scientific advisor in the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), but he is better known through his 2008 book Sustainable Energy Without the Hot Air. This has been downloaded for free nearly half a million times and shows the limits and options for renewable energy technologies as we seek to decarbonise our societies. His ability to clearly communicate renewable energy issues is amply illustrated in the video “How many lightbulbs?”.
