Renewable energy sources

Most popular at the top

  • Concentrating Solar Power Technologyby K Lovegrove; W Stein

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 315.00

    Concentrating solar power (CSP) technology is poised to take its place as one of the major contributors to the future clean energy mix. Using straightforward manufacturing processes, CSP technology capitalises on conventional power generation cycles, whilst cost effectively matching supply and demand though the integration of thermal energy storage.... more...

  • Stand-Alone and Hybrid Wind Energy Systemsby J K Kaldellis

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 290.00

    Wind power is fast becoming one of the leading renewable energy sources worldwide, not only from large scale wind farms but also from the increasing penetration of stand-alone and hybrid wind energy systems. These systems are primarily of benefit in small-scale applications, especially where there is no connection to a central electricity network,... more...

  • Wind Energy Systemsby John Dalsgaard Sørensen; Jens N Sørensen

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 285.00

    Large-scale wind power generation is one of the fastest developing sources of renewable energy and already makes a substantial contribution to power grids in many countries worldwide. With technology maturing, the challenge is now to increase penetration, and optimise the design, construction and performance of wind energy systems. Fundamental issues... more...

  • Advanced Energy Materialsby Ashutosh Tiwari; Sergiy Valyukh

    Wiley 2014; US$ 206.95 US$ 186.26

    An essential resource for scientists designing new energy materials for the vast landscape of solar energy conversion as well as materials processing and characterization Based on the new and fundamental research on novel energy materials with tailor-made photonic properties, the role of materials engineering has been to provide much needed support... more...

  • Renewable Energy Technologiesby L. A. Kristoferson; V. Bokalders

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Renewable Energy Technologies: Their Applications in Developing Countries presents an overview and assessment of technologies for energy-related projects in the rural sector of developing countries. This book discusses the important, but not dominant, role that new and renewable sources of energy (NARSE) will have in the Third World. Bioenergy fuel... more...

  • The Power of Transformationby OECD Publishing; International Energy Agency

    OECD Publishing 2014; US$ 140.00

    Wind power and solar photovoltaics (PV) are crucial to meeting future energy needs while decarbonising the power sector. Deployment of both technologies has expanded rapidly in recent years, one of the few bright spots in an otherwise bleak picture of clean energy progress. However, the inherent variability of wind power and solar PV raises unique... more...

  • Solar Energyby H. Messel; S. T. Butler

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    Solar Energy is a collection of lecture from the 17th International Science School for High School Students. The book presents nine papers that tackle concerns in solar energy. The text first covers the world energy resource and consumption, and then proceeds to tackling energy conversion, the atmospheric environment, and climatic change. In the third... more...

  • Understanding Wind Power Technologyby Alois Schaffarczyk

    Wiley 2014; US$ 102.95 US$ 92.66

    Wind energy technology has progressed enormously over the last decade. In coming years it will continue to develop in terms of power ratings, performance and installed capacity of large wind turbines worldwide, with exciting developments in offshore installations. Designed to meet the training needs of wind engineers, this introductory text puts... more...

  • Towards Sustainability of Biomass Importationby Andrea Schmeichel

    Europa Law Publishing 2014; US$ 92.00

    This book addresses the conflict between climate change, other environmental concerns such as biodiversity, and international trade, focussing on the relationship between climate change mitigation and biodiversity protection in the bioenergy sector, taking into account the specific situation for imports from developing countries. more...

  • The Economic Competitiveness of Renewable Energyby Winfried Hoffmann

    Wiley 2014; US$ 51.95 US$ 46.76

    The world is at the crossroads of either quickly changing the energy picture towards implementing efficient renewable energy sources or postponing this process by another generation.  Based on the author's more than 30 years industrial experience, this book gives a set of assumptions by extrapolating known technology developments and shows that... more...
