Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper discusses various issues associated with the development and operation of networks to facilitate and transfer energy derived from low carbon sources such as renewables, nuclear power and burning of fossil fuels with carbon capture and storage. It starts by briefly describing the limitations of present day networks before moving on to discuss the likely features of a network for low carbon energy and how it should be developed and operated, the facilitation of new connections to the network, the roles of the network licensees, the key technologies and the support of innovation and, before drawing some overall conclusions, some lessons that can be learned from other countries
