In light of the enormous tension that has been generated by different views on energy policy, a discussion is offered of the general problematics associated with the provision of various energy solutions. The primary objective is to look at how to manage these problems, beginning with attitudes, progressing to understanding solution constraints and enablers, and followed by a baseline for evaluation and comparisons to aid decision-making processes. The discussion hopes to bring some clarity in tackling our current and future energy problems in the light of mixing energy options and working towards a realistic energy transition that suits our future.
