For this year’s Charles Simonyi Lecture we welcome David MacKay, Regius Professor of Engineering at the University of Cambridge and acclaimed author of 'Sustainable Energy – Without The Hot Air.' David will discuss how the laws of physics constrain our energy options, and will describe what happened when his reflections on energy arithmetic propelled him into a senior civil service role. Introduced by Marcus Du Sautoy.
