What contribution can nuclear energy make to improve the security of energy supply? This study, which examines a selection of OECD member countries, qualitatively and quantitatively validates the often intuitive assumption that, as a largely domestic source of electricity with stable costs and no greenhouse gas emissions during production, nuclear... more...

The acute energy problems facing China today are characterized by their own histories and realities. Some have come about because of China's energy endowment and stage of development, while others have been created by a combination of domestic and global factors. Some are the results of an accumulation of longstanding contradictions, while others... more...

The importance of energy for transport was recognised in Report No. 1 published by The Watt Committee on Energy in 1977. Two features of transport energy use are its magnitude (approximately 22% of the UK total) and its vulnerability to oil supplies (nearly 50% of our oil supply). There have been several excellent conferences elsewhere since then... more...

The manner in which we produce and consume energy is of crucial importance to sustainable development, as energy has deep relationships with each of its three dimensions -- the economy, the environment and social welfare. These relationships develop in a fast-moving and complex situation characterised by increasing globalisation, growing market liberalisation... more...
- The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2010; US$ 38.00
This book is aimed at students and professionals as well as anyone interested in having a global vision and perspective on energy. Over the past two centuries the use of coal, and later oil and gas, to produce energy has allowed an unprecedented increase in the standard of living. Over the past fifty years the development of nuclear energy has given... more...

Ist die Energieversorgung in Europa allein auf der Basis von Sonnen- und Windenergie möglich? Der Autor zeigt, dass dies eine reale Option ist. Er ermittelt den Kapazitätsbedarf für Speicherkraftwerke und stellt neue Typen von Pumpspeicherkraftwerken vor, mit deren Hilfe die Lücke zwischen wetterabhängiger Stromgewinnung und Stromverbrauch geschlossen... more...
