    Description

    Taylor and Francis The Science Of Renewable Evergy 2nd Edition by SPELLMAN F R

    Latest Edition Explores Fresh, New Alternatives to Fossil Fuels The Science of Renewable Energy, Second Edition takes a look at ways to produce sustainable and reliable energy sources and presents practical examples along with scientific methods, models, observations, and tools. Developed by esteemed author Frank R. Spellman, this book includes input from industry experts offering guidance and direction on obtaining self-replenishing energy from natural processes. The book focuses on the various forms of renewable energy derived from natural processes that are constantly replenished: solar energy, wind energy, ocean energy, wave energy, tidal energy, geothermal energy, biomass energy, hydropower energy, biofuels, and hydrogen fuel cells. New in the Second Edition: • Updates each chapter with current information including the latest innovations • Elaborates on energy basics • Adds important energy parameters dealing with both fossil fuel supplies and renewable resources (energy units as they apply to fossil fuel energy and renewable energy) • Expands each chapter to include both the pros and cons of renewable energy production and use The Science of Renewable Energy, Second Edition focuses on the production of clean and efficient energy sources and serves as a reference to undergraduates in renewable energy courses as well as non-specialists within the energy industries. Key Features:- • Adds information on the latest innovations related to all types of renewable energy sources, as well as the related environmental implications • Provides a comprehensive survey of the major renewable energy sources • Presents the topics in straightforward English with little emphasis placed on rigorous math and engineering (for undergraduates and non-specialists) • Contains end-of-chapter questions and multiple illustrations • Covers economic, social, and policy issues relating to large-scale renewable energy systems Table of Contents Post-Oil Energy The Gathering Storm Peak Oil A Malthusian Catastrophe?
