This book provides readers with up-to-date views of innovative results and technical methods applied to energy and environmental economics. It offers a wider view about the relationship between environmental pollution, energy consumption and economic growth. Summary. The need for cleaner, sustainable energy continues to drive engineering research, development, and capital projects. Recent advances in combustion science and technology, including sophisticated diagnostic and control equipment, have enabled engineers to improve fuel processes and systems and reduce the damaging effects of fuels on the environment.
Advances in Renewable Energies and Power Technologies: Volume 1: Solar and Wind Energies examines both the theoretical and practical elements of renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaics, solar, photothermal and wind energies. Yahyaoui and a team of expert contributors present the most up-to-date information and analysis on renewable. The environmental impacts of renewable energy are site specific, but generalizations are still possible. Renewable energy is usually more environmentally friendly than alternative energy sources Author: Shitalkumar Patel.

The author does a really good job of explaining about various energy and the impact it has on the environment, and giving estimate of about the future. I heard the author of this book is teaching some class at CSULB, I wonder if I could enroll in his class by open university.5/5(1).
The text "Energy and the Environment: Sources, technologies, and impacts," is conceived and written at a level suitable for use as an introductory undergraduate textbook in energy and environment for students with no or little mathematics or science background.5/5(1).
The book’s three part treatment is based on a clear and rigorous exposition of a wide range of options to reduce the carbon footprint Part 1 of the book, Challenge of Sustainability, examines the fundamental drivers of energy demand – economic growth, the need for basic energy services, and the interdependence of economic, political, environmental, social, equity, legacy and policy : Hardcover.
Completely updated and expanded from the author’s previous book, Introduction to Energy and the Environment, this new book includes current information on the environmental effects of combustion by-products, as well as technological breakthroughs and newly adopted environmental legislation, which have taken place since the first edition.
The text can be used in physics, technology, physical science, and environmental science courses for non-science majors. Many of the Energy technologies and the environment book topics found in introductory physics textbooks are included.
As a result, this book can be used as the text in a conceptual physics course with energy as /5(33). Energy and the Environment is conceived and written at a level suitable for use as an introductory undergraduate textbook in energy and environment for students with very little mathematics or science background.
It can also be used by anyone interested in technical, political, environmental, and economical issues related to energy. Renewable Energy: Technology and the Environment comprises chapters, with the first focusing on integrated resource planning.
The following chapters delve into such topics as electricity from geothermal energy; wave energy prospects and prototypes; renewable energy policies for the nineties and beyond; and renewable energy technologies in developing countries.
This book emerges from the recognition that energy, environment and ecosystems are dynamically and inextricably connected. The energy environment system must be addressed in its totality, so that we can devise sustainable solutions that incorporate both economic growth and environmental conservation.
The text "Energy and the Environment: Sources, technologies, and impacts," is conceived and written at a level suitable for use as an introductory undergraduate textbook in energy and environment for students with no or little mathematics or science background.
The page text covers energy fundamentals, renewable (wind, wave, solar, geothermal, etc), and non-renewable (fossil and nuclear) energy. Over the past two centuries, the use of coal and later oil and gas has allowed an unprecedented increase in the standard of living.&; Over the past fifty years, the dominance of nuclear energy has given us access to an even more powerful source of energy.&; More recently there has been a revival in interest for renewable energy sources, which have for a long time dominated the history of.
