"Solar NOT Nuclear" - "Centralised generation of electricity in conventional power stations wastes 70 per cent of the fuel's primary energy. Electricity is uniquely suited for lighting, electronics, public transport, electric motors for hand tools, appliances and larger machines. These account for about eight per cent of an industrial society's energy demand. Using electricity for water and space heating is very wasteful. It is more efficient to burn the fuel at the location where the heat is needed."
