The Scottish city of Aberdeen used to be known as the energy capital of Europe. For decades it prospered off the back of oil and gas reserves in the North Sea. The BBC's Joe Miller reports on what the falling world oil price has done to the city's fortunes, and speaks to oil billionaire-turned-philanthropist Sir Ian Wood, who hails from Aberdeen. And Business Daily's regular contributor James Srodes, an American author and journalist, wonders how much oil is needed to make a solar panel. (Photo credit: Andy Buchanan/AFP/Getty Images)
