The lecture series held in spring 2000 provided an overview of the energy problem related to demography, risk evaluation, waste and cost and discussed alternative energy sources like the energy amplifier, americium and wind energy.
The new lecture series should complement by addressing solar energy, ocean stream energy, energy storage and classical fossil energy, its risks and the possibility of its replacement.
