The Energy Dice – exploring efficient transformation, transport, storage and application of thermal energy

Description
The world faces a 'global energy trilemma' – affordability, low carbon and security – and the race is on to find innovative solutions to radically transform how energy is supplied and used, and to make future systems more efficient and reliable. In fact, the best single solution to all these problems may already have been invented – by Professor Yulong Ding, University of Birmingham's founding Chamberlain Chair of Energy Storage, and one of the world's most influential researchers.
