Published by the Nuffield Foundation, this background reader was compiled to support Unit G 'Energy sources' in the Revised Nuffield Advanced Physics course. This book contained a collection of articles related to energy options. The articles were not written specially for the course but were selected from a range of sources. Some were shortened but none was substantially rewritten. A companion volume was the booklet called Energy Sources: Data, References, and Readings.
