Abstract

Energy is the pacemaker in our modern society. Energy production has typically been designed and constructed in large units based on fossil fuels to achieve cost efficiency with known adverse consequences on the environment. Reversing these practices toward sustainable energy paths is now a necessity. In nature’s energy systems, energy from the sunlight is bound as chemical energy into the living things such as plants and microbes. Future societies could make much more use of the various forms of solarbased energy forms and flows, but need at the same time pay attention to circulating substances and reducing deleterious emissions.
