The likelihood that energy use might warm the climate through the greenhouse effect related to carbon dioxide emissions has enhanced consideration of energy derived from nuclear and renewable resources such as solar and wind. The discussion will in part address the pros and cons of potentially sustainable energy strategies at various scales- globally, nationally and in large urban environments. The crucial role of electrical and thermal energy storage in developing resilient energy networks with plug and play capability from various sources, somewhat in analogy with the internet, will be discussed.
