Pierre-Olivier Pineau publishes L’équilibre énergétique
To understand our energy consumption and act in a sustainable way
March 8, 2023
Why should we make an energy transition? What should be our motivations? Which technologies can we count on? What will be our greatest asset? Professor Pierre-Olivier Pineau answers all these questions specifically in his latest book entitled L’équilibre énergétique, published by Éditions Robert Laffont in February 2023.
“Many books have already been written about the climate, energy transitions, and the various ecological crises that we are experiencing,” says the author. “But I felt that there was still one that needed to be written to present things a little differently and more directly.”
In that respect, this publication addresses the key elements required by us to find a sustainable energy balance, understand our energy consumption, act in a sustainable way and live better, both collectively and individually.
