A Spark of Science - Energy Trillema

Future Fuels

Future Fuels is a series of three videos produced by Glasgow Science Centre for Our Future Energy. They present an introduction to how we currently use fuel, what some of the cleaner alternatives to fossil fuels are, and the possibilities offered by friction free travel.

Internal Combustion Engine

By looking at how it is processed in an internal combustion engine, explore how we currently use fuel.

My 2050 - Energy Minister for a Day!

Do you have what it takes to be Energy Minister for a day?

The UK is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050. For this to happen, the UK economy should be transformed while ensuring secure, low-carbon energy supplies to 2050.

Using the MacKay Carbon Calculator, you can create pathways to find out how we might reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 and beyond.

#GSCAtHome​: Future Transport

? Are you interested in building a sustainable transport for the future? Join Claire for this top priority mission which requires bravery, creativity, and a whole lot of innovation!

?️ Many of our existing methods of transport such as cars and aeroplanes use fossil fuels for energy.

? Burning fossil fuels for energy releases carbon dioxide into the air or atmosphere around our planet which traps in heat and causes climate change.
