The Global Energy Flux

By: Bruno De Wachter

Which exergy reservoirs are we using for energy services?

The following illustration was published in the brochure of Stanford University’s Global Climate and Energy Program (GCEP). It indicates all the energy fluxes on our planet, the exergy reservoirs, and the points of natural or anthropogenic exergy destruction. It is a fascinating graph that illustrates virtually all of the possible energy sources we presently dispose of.
