MANUEL FUENTES :

ALTERNATIVE ENERGY REPORT

That an up-to-date overview of the present energy situation is produced as a matter of urgency. This will involve assessing, co-ordinating and collating existing research as well as inviting new approaches. This is to be achieved by sponsoring a number of university research fellowships. The first, physicist, Dr. Manuel Fuentes, (in association with Oxford Brookes University), is already funded and began work in September 1997. This work was sponsored and funded by The Millennium Debate.
