3 Reducing energy in
What technologies and methods could you implement to reduce the amount of energy from the Sun that falls on the planet? Now you know more about what you need to tackle as Energy Balance Consultant, spend a couple of minutes thinking of possible geoengineering options. They can be as fantastical as you like – you could even develop the ideas you had in Session 1.
