Take one top academic, some dangerous ideas, add one comedian and it’s the force of nature that is the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CODI).
Hosted by comedian Susan Morrison, and now in its eleventh year, CODI is sixty minutes of rapid-fire research from some of the finest minds in the country.
How will we use energy in the future and where will it come from? And how do we ensure that this is done equitably? This show will not focus on technical solutions as such. Researchers at The University of Edinburgh from social and political sciences and mathematics describe their research. Where shall we place future energy generation facilities so that the gains and the costs are shared equitably? What is the public response to the transition? How shall we design future energy markets and how do we ensure that our energy supply is secure?
