Behind Energy “The true cost of energy”

logo_behindenergyJPGBehind Energy is a site created to highlight the importance of the energy sector’s externalities.

Behind Energy aims to answer some simple questions, such as what the true costs of different energy sources are (not just their economic cost) or how much it actually costs to produce a barrel of oil or a kilowatt-hour of solar power. Behind Energy is a “hub” that collects news, research, reports and documents from international sources, all organised according a particular viewpoint: discovering the social, economic, environmental and civil impacts of energy policies.

Behind Energy is a blog too, offering an opportunity for open and transparent dialogue on the true costs of energy.
