THE ENERGY BIOSCAPE
The coronavirus pandemic has already forced the UK into multiple lockdowns and has proven the seriousness of measures that need to be taken towards achieving the UK’s carbon-free goal by 2050. As the population continues to grow and urbanisation expands, the UK continues to significantly rely on carbon-based energy generation and on an economic model inclined towards accumulating profits rather than advancing the health of our environment.
Working closely with UK government, the IPCC predicts that, at current rates of consumption, the global temperature would increase by 1.5C by 2050. , The adverse outcomes of global warming would influence, amongst many others,: health, the spread of diseases and economic growth. The response should be to decrease total emissions by 45% by 2030 and to reach net-zero by 2050 to avoid the consequences.
The Energy Bioscape is designed to utilise bio-inspired technologies together with conventional ones. It makes good use of the by-products extracted from integrated technologies for recycling and repurposing, to achieve an efficient loop system. The end goal for ‘The Energy Landscape’ would be the transition from current carbon-based technologies and to help with the extraction of CO2 that presently lingers in our atmosphere.
