  • Renewable energy in Europe 2017: recent growth and knock-on effects

    Addressing climate change requires a globally coordinated, long-term response across all economic sectors.

  • Rainfall, Runoff and Infiltration Re-visited

    Introduction The flow variations in sewers have been modelled for several years with a comparatively high degree of accuracy as far as the diurnal variations and responses to climatic conditions are concerned. However, until comparatively recently the variations in flow due to fluctuations in groundwater levels, soil storage capacity and wetness of the catchment have only been modelled in basic ...

  • Re-writing the ecological metaphor: Part 1

    Biological, evolutionary or ecological metaphors underpin much of theorisation in the social sciences in general, and the themes of inter-firm competition and technological change in particular. The argument advanced in this paper is that the use of ecological metaphors has been partial and selective. In key areas of theorisation such as industrial ecology the selective use of ecological ...

  • On energy, we`re finally walking the walk

    The United States has entered a new energy era, ending a century of rising carbon emissions. As the U.S. delegation prepares for the international climate negotiations in Copenhagen in December, it does so from a surprisingly strong position, one based on a dramatic 9 percent drop in U.S. carbon emissions over the past two years and the promise of further huge reductions. Prominent among these ...


  • Re-writing the ecological metaphor, Part 2: the example of diversity

    As the discipline has expanded, so questions have been asked of the limits to the industrial ecology metaphor and its status, by some of the practitioners, as an objective science.

  • The limits to growth and 'finite' mineral resources: re–visiting the assumptions and drinking from that half–capacity glass

    The famous 1972 study 'Limits to growth' (LtG) created global controversy about its dire predictions for the 21st century - e.g., global population crash, rampant pollution and resource depletion. Amongst some of the most fervent critics was the mining industry, who argued that mineral-metals are easily recyclable, that exploration and new technology can increase known resources, and that price ...

  • A systematic approach to assessing the sustainability of the Renewable Energy Standard (RES) under the proposed American Renewable Energy Act (H.R. 890)

    Assessing sustainability is a complex challenge for policy makers, scientists and engineers. In an effort to evaluate industrial systems, a range of alternative methods have been developed; unfortunately, these methods stop short at demonstrating how industrial activity affects sustainability. In response to this need, the Population based Model for Assessing Sustainability Implications (PMASI) ...

  • Design education for sustainability: a design studio project on the re-contextualisation of the wind-up radio

    The drive towards globalisation has not only environmental and social implications, as there is a marked effect also on designers and the design process. Today, the mass production of electronic and electrical products is typically outsourced, and it is apparent that most end up being discarded while still functioning properly. With the intention of raising a critical discussion and promoting a ...

  • Re–examining the growth–emissions nexus: does the latecomer advantage alter the environmental Kuznets curve?

    The Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) hypothesis describes an inverted U–shaped relationship between environmental quality indicators and per capita income. In comparison to previous studies on the EKC, this paper tests for the potential advantage of latecomer economies. It is presumed that latecomers will learn from the more efficient pollution abatement technologies employed by their ...
