Which Energy?

Parliament Launch of ISIS 2006 Energy Report

Final Announcement Note Room Change

Everything the Government’s Energy Review Does Not Tell You

Ex-minister for the environment Elliot Morley rejects nuclear energy and said of the UK government’s Energy Review: “If the review was open, transparent and fair looking at the options on economic grounds across a whole life cost assessment of nuclear stations, the solution may well point to renewables.”  

ISIS’ Energy Report does that, and more. It brings together the science, ethics, economics, safety and politics of available energy options to help us make the right choices.

“Highly readable and comprehensive!” “Inspiring!” “Excellent!” “Brilliant!” “Offers real solutions.”

Sponsored by dozens of civil society organisations, politicians and citizens worldwide

The Report will be available at the Launch Conference
