All proposed transitions to more sustainable energy systems require the growth of a variety of different low-carbon technologies. Some of these, such as photovoltaics (PV), contribute with a net energy surplus returned to society. Other technologies, including carbon capture and storage (CCS) and batteries, in some ways act as net energy sinks, but can still be crucial for the feasibility of reaching a low-carbon future. Investigating the energetic implications of introducing these technologies under different circumstances improves the understanding of potential rates of change and how the benefits for society can be maximized.
