The lecture:

Energy has always been among the most fundamental elements for the survival, reproduction and evolution of human society. This webinar is offering a brief overview of the historical evolution of Energy, highlighting the key milestones of energy use by humans from the Paleolithic era to current times. In this webinar, we will describe the Energy systems of the past - from biomass and fire to oil and renewable sources - and we will outline the main Energy transitions from one system to another. Being in a historical phase of urgent changes and decisions that must be made, we will unveil the main driving forces behind Energy transitions and discuss the qualities and nature of the current Energy paradigm shift we are seeking.
