discover... ENERGYTHE SCIENCE

Energy. It warms us, moves us and feeds us - it's the driving force of life. InsideOut investigates where energy comes from, how we use it and where it goes.

Today we use more energy than ever before, and over the next 50 years the demand for energy will increase even further. At this rate, energy sources like oil, coal and gas really will run out. How will we cope? Where will we get our energy from in the future? Find out if new technologies can provide the answers.

This area of discover is based on What makes things happen? Energy, power and motion, a lecture given by Professor Richard Catlow at the Ri.

There's plenty to explore on the InsideOut site:
