Energy is a true shelf reference, providing a thorough overview of the entire
renewable energy sphere, while still functioning as a go-to information source
for professionals and students when they need answers about a specific technical
issue. Crafted over the last 15 years into a problem-solving tool for engineers,
researchers, consultants and planners currently working in the field, as well
as a detailed map of the renewables universe for those looking to expand into
new technological specialties, Renewable
Energy by Sorensen offers the most comprehensive coverage of the subject
Energy has been structured around three parts in order to assist readers
in focusing on the issues that impact them the most for a given project or question.
PART I covers the basic scientific principles behind all major renewable energy
resources, such as solar, wind and biomass. PART II provides in-depth information
about how these raw renewable sources can actually be converted into useful
forms, transmitted into the grid and stored for future utilization. Finally,
PART III undertakes the aspects of energy planning, environmental impacts and
socio-economic issues on regional and global levels.
In this fourth edition update, new material includes expanded coverage of biofuels,
solar conversion, biomass and fuel cells, storage and transmission, and a new
chapter on integrated technologies to introduce the hybrid systems now being
explored. New surveys and the most recent research findings are included throughout.
