China Centre, Jesus College invites you to a talk given by

Professor Peter Littlewood, FRS, Professor of Physics at the University 
of Chicago; Formerly Head of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of 
Cambridge & Director of the Argonne National Laboratory, USA,


‘The world’s transition to renewable energy’

Date: 30 May,
Time: 5.30 - 7pm
Venue: Webb Library, Jesus College, Jesus Lane, CB5 8BL

Abstract: The talk will focus on the impact of renewable energy 
technologies – principally solar, wind, and electrical storage.  
“Staggering reductions in costs now mean that unsubsidized solar and 
wind is less expensive than any other form of power generation.  The 
speed of this change shows every sign of being much more rapid than the 
first industrial revolution, the 20th century mobility revolution, and 
even the information technology revolution.”

Everyone is welcome.
