Powering Up

Unleashing the clean energy supply chain

Alan Finkel
Black Inc

Former Chief Scientist of Australia Alan Finkel reckons the country is on the cusp of becoming a world leader in clean energy.

This is not an easy path, but as “a great believer in human ingenuity to overcome such challenges”, Dr Finkel lays out what is necessary for Australia to shed its image as a polluter and instead harness its abundant clean energy advantages.

This book sounds tough going and readers will look very brainy pulling this out on the train, but Powering Up is a surprisingly straightforward text, thanks to the author’s ability to break down his subject. Dr Finkel succinctly explains how technology works, why it will help and the challenges needed to overcome.

Simply put, it is a great way to arm yourself with the information about what our governments need to do to clean up our act and become a shining light to the rest of a planet in peril.
