Report: Building a positive future for Bristol after Peak Oil


downloadPeak oil is the time when the amount of oil produced worldwide in a year reaches its absolute maximum. From this point onward the amount of oil produced will drop. After that time, oil will come from more difficult sources, and become more scarce, which will increase prices.

Our current way of life relies on the availability of an abundant supply of cheap oil. Cheap oil has made possible many of the huge changes in the last 30 years in the way we communicate, travel, eat, work and play. The next 30 years will bring yet more changes to our daily lifestyles.

In 2009 a report about peak oil and Bristol was commissioned by Bristol City Council and the Bristol Green Capital Partnership momentum group called ‘Building a positive future for Bristol after Peak Oil’.
