|Summary text/ abstract||For the second half of the 20th century, energy has been comparatively cheap and we have grown to take it for granted. The general perception is that, although it is not overly abundant and we have to pay those regular utility bills, there will be enough energy to meet our present and future needs. Thus we need not really worry about it too much because the scientists and engineers will sort out any hiccups in supply. I would suggest that in recent times – only a couple of generations – we in the industrialized world have forgotten the profound role energy really does play in our everyday activities. In the not– too-distant future, it is likely to become the prime driver of change of many aspects of our lives. The way we prepare for this future demands new ways of thinking.|
