BP funded research on complex relationships between natural resources and the supply and use of energy
Energy Sustainability Challenge
A BP-funded consortium of experts from leading universities has examined the complex relationships between natural resources and the supply and use of energy.
This multi-disciplinary research programme - the Energy Sustainability Challenge (ESC) - investigated the effects of natural resource scarcities on patterns of energy supply and consumption. It also examined which technologies are likely to be needed in an increasingly resource-constrained world.
