The Imperial Festival 2013 was on Friday 3 May and Saturday 4 May and attracted over 10,000 visitors. I, Science went along and talked to some of the scientists demonstrating their work.

In this episode Cheng Seong Khor, a PhD student from the Department of Chemical Engineering explains how his stall helped members of the public think about the future UK electricity mix.

Visitors used an Excel spreadsheet to set their own parameters then chose from various electricity generating options such as coal-fired power stations, nuclear, and onshore and offshore wind.
