Offer RETROFUTUR a counter-history of energy innovations

Description
A book gathering 65 inventions and innovations from the past to make us see a sustainable future.

Preface by Bertrand Piccard. Our planet is currently experiencing an unprecedented energy crisis. Yet solutions exist because the history of energy has left many good ideas on the side of the road. This book offers a real journey through time, exhuming many energy innovations of the past, unknown or forgotten, with the conviction that it is also in the past that are solutions for tomorrow ... Thus, the presentation of a sixty inventions sometimes improbable but still ingenious can find old and ignored parts of the history of energies: soles heating Lavoisier (1780) to the hydrogen car of Jean-Luc Perrier (1979), Bell's photophone (1880) ) to the girobus (1950) ... Each invention, illustrated by a full-page photograph, postcards and illustrations of time, is exposed in a few lines. Cross-sectional articles occasionally offer more global reflections on the notion of progress, the importance of archives and patents, the relationship between science and the arts.
