Description du produit

Revue de presse

Review from previous edition ...a valid work set in its own context as an educational device (The Journal of Energy Literature 2003.)

Review from other book by this author It is high time that good textbooks on the subject become available on the market. Renewable Energy: Power for a Sustainable Future, is thus a timely and welcome addition to the existing literature on the subject...Godfrey Boyle and his team of authors have, in my view, managed to produce an outstanding textbook in which a wealth of information, including an extensive amount of data, is presented in a lucid and comprehensible form. (The Journal of Energy Literature, March 1997)

It is readily accessible to readers with a wide range of interests and abilities because the complex scientific explanations are presented separately from the main text ... the authors have presented the questions that must be considered. The book contains a wealth of information and is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in renewable energy technologies and their possible role in our future. (Nicola Pearsall, Chemistry & Industry, October 1996)

... an excellent and timely primer... the book strikes an admirable balance between making the prinicples underlying the renewables as understandable as possible and endeavouring not to oversimplify important technological and economic aspects. (Resurgence, April 1997)

This book has been produced by a large, expert course team who have carefully researched the area and presented much up to date information ... The book is very user-friendly, having many valuable figures, tables and boxes. There are plentiful suggestions for further reading, and students are guided towards key papers in a range of journals. I will buy this book for my library. (Paul Phillips, Education in Chemistry, May 1997)

This is an excellent text, covering all the actual and potential sources of renewable energy. The writing is clear and the many excellent diagrams and illustrations complement the written word. Where the treatment is necessarily theoretical the level is appropriate and the argument laid out in separate text. This book will be highly relevant to any undergraduate studying this important field. (Aslib Book Guide, October 1996)

Energy Systems and Sustainability will make a very useful resource for any engineer interested in energy systems for the future, particularly as each chapter is augmented by a substantial list of references that can be used to follow up individual topics in greater depth. (IEE Review. April 2004.)

Présentation de l'éditeur

How can we provide clean, safe, sustainable energy supplies for the world despite rising population levels and increasing economic development? Today, energy and sustainability are of primary concern and form the focus of this book and its companion volume, Renewable Energy. Interdisciplinary in its approach and global in its perspective, this book provides a contemporary exploration of the economic, social, environmental, and policy issues raised by current systems of energy use, as well as describing their key physical and engineering features. The historical evolution of the world's energy systems, the principles underlying their use, and their present status and future prospects are analysed, while emphasizing the important issue of sustainability. Beginning with a survey of basic energy concepts, the book describes the magnitude and patterns of human energy needs at various levels. Focus then turns to an overview of the fossil and nuclear-fuelled energy that, together with hydroelectric power and traditional biofuels, supply most of the world's commercial energy needs. Sections on economics describes the basic methods by which the monetary costs of energy are calculated, and discuss the issue of 'external' costs of energy production. The concluding chapters consider the sustainabliity problems associated with both fossil and nuclear fuel use, and ways in which they might be ameliorated by various technological and social developments. This is done in the context of a rising use of renewable energy. · Extensive coverage of the important concepts and issues underpinning modern energy production and its future prospects · Adopts an interdisciplinary approach making the text readable by engineer and policy maker alike Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Energy systems and Sustainability features: For students: · Links to sources of further information and up-to-date energy statistics · Self-assessment questions For registered adopters of the book: · Figures from the book, available for download
