is the culmination of a year long collaboration at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT).The projectwas conceived and directed by CAT’s Development Director, Paul Allen.The work has been conducted by and drawn on theknowledge and expertise of the Graduate Students of CAT’s Graduate School for the Environment (GSE), CAT itself, thePublic Interest Research Centre and consultations with many experts in the relevant fields.The process has been led by TimHelweg-Larsen, a lecturer at the GSE and Director of the Public Interest Research Centre.The report has been diligentlyguided to conclusion by research co-ordinator Jamie Bull.We would like to thank Mike Thompson and all the staff of the GSE for their support of the project.The process has involved well over a hundred individuals and it is is not possible to accurately record here the detailed andvaried contributions of all those involved.We hope on this page to give a sense of the contributions made.

While the final analysis and text of this report is entirely the responsibility of the authors, there are many who havecommented helpfully on the evolving drafts.The final document does not necessarily reflect the opinions of those whoreviewed it.These include many experts from a range of relevant fields: Richard Blanchard, Brenda Boardman, ColinCampbell, Rob Hopkins, Gavin Killip, Sarah Mander, Bob Todd, John Twidell and David Wasdell, as well as the considerableknowledge of CAT’s own departments.We are especially indebted to Godfrey Boyle of the Open University whoseencouragement, measured critique and extensive knowledge of renewable energy informed the concluding drafts of thisreport.
