In the context of Climate Change as an international imperative, this chapter explores the role that technology may have in addressing global warming. It takes the perspective that a range of solutions will be required, involving changes to social practices as much as the development of energy supply solutions that have a net zero impact on greenhouse gas emissions. It explores a range of potential changes that individuals can make to their daily lives in support of the wider transformation needed within society as a whole.
