Newly revised, the second edition of this pioneering work addresses emerging factors affecting energy production and use, including the availability and desirability of various fuels.

Handbook of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Brought to you by the creator of numerous bestselling handbooks, the Handbook of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy provides a thorough grounding in the analytic techniques and technological developments that underpin renewable energy use and environmental protection. The handbook emphasizes the engineering aspects of energy conservation and renewable energy. Taking a world view, the editors discuss key topics underpinning energy efficiency and renewable energy systems. They provide content at the forefront of the contemporary debate about energy and environmental futures. This is vital information for planning a secure energy future.

Handbook of Alternative Fuel Technologies

In addition to enabling a clean and energy efficient future, alternative fuel sources are fast becoming a necessity for meeting today's growing demands for low-cost and convenient energy. The Handbook of Alternative Fuel Technologies offers a thorough guide to the science and available technologies for developing alternatives to petroleum fuel sources and petrochemical feedstocks.

Fuel Cells, Engines and Hydrogen: An Exergy Approach

Fuel cell technology is the most exciting and legitimate alternative source of power currently available to us as world resources of non-renewable fuel continue to be depleted. No other power generating technology holds the same benefits that fuel cells offer, including high reliability and efficiency, negligible environmental impact, and security of supply. Fuel cells run on hydrogen – the simplest and most plentiful gas in the universe - although they can also run on carbon monoxide, methane, or even coal. Their applications are diverse, from powering automobiles, buildings and portable electronics, to converting methane gas from wastewater plants and landfills into electricity.

Modern Electric, Hybrid Electric, and Fuel Cell Vehicles: Fundamentals, Theory, and Design

Air quality is deteriorating, the globe is warming, and petroleum resources are decreasing. The most promising solutions for the future involve the development of effective and efficient drive train technologies. This comprehensive volume meets this challenge and opportunity by integrating the wealth of disparate information found in scattered papers and research.

Microbial Fuel Cells

This timely book is the first dedicated to Microbial Fuel Cells. It not only serves as an introduction to the theory underlying the development and functioning of MFCs, it also serves as a manual for ongoing research. In addition, author Bruce Logan, a leading pioneer in MFC research and development, provides practical guidance for the effective design and operation of MFCs based on his own firsthand experience.

Hydrogen and Fuel Cells

Hydrogen and Fuel Cells not only describes the "how" and "where" aspects of hydrogen fuels cells usage, but also the obstacles and benefits of its use, as well as the social implications (both economically and environmental). Written by a world-renowned researcher in energy systems, this thoroughly illustrated and cross-referenced book is an excellent reference for researchers, professionals and students in the field of renewable energy.

Principles of Fuel Cells

Fuel cells are advanced energy conversion and power generation systems with inherent high-energy conversion efficiency and environmentally-friendly operation. Fuel cells offer a realistic answer to the world's urgent need for pollution-free and efficient power. They represent an increasingly vital issue to engineers, the transportation industry and government. Fuel cells can achieve zero emission, and meeting the toughest emission standards; they are compatible with renewable energy sources and carriers with sustainable development. Due to their interdisciplinary nature, fuel cells involve and require knowledge of engineering thermodynamics, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry, mass transfer, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, manufacturing and design, engineering optimization, materials science and engineering, chemistry and chemical engineering, and electrical engineering.

Alternative Energy Systems: Design and Analysis with Induction Generators, Second Edition

Durable and cost-effective, induction power generators have undergone numerous improvements that make them an increasingly attractive option for renewable energy applications, particularly for wind and hydropower generation systems. From fundamental concepts to the latest technologies, Alternative Energy Systems: Design and Analysis with Induction Generators, Second Edition provides detailed and accurate coverage of all aspects related to the design, operation, and overall analysis of such systems.

Handbook of Plant-Based Biofuels

With the depletion of oil resources as well as the negative environmental impact of fossil fuels, there is much interest in alternative energy sources. Focusing on some of the most important alternate energy sources for the foreseeable future, the Handbook of Plant-Based Biofuels provides state-of-the-art information on the status of the production of biofuels, in particular, bioethanol and biodiesel.
