The comprehensive guide to engineering alternative and renewable energy systems and applications—updated for the latest trends and technologies 

This book was designed tohelp engineers develop new solutions for the current energy economy. To that end it provides technical discussions, along with numerous real-world examples of virtually all existing alternative energy sources, applications, systems and system components. All chapters focus on first-order engineering calculations, and consider alternative uses of existing and renewable energy resources. Just as important, the author describes how to apply these concepts to the development of new energy solutions. 

Since the publication of the critically acclaimed first edition of this book, the alternative, renewable and sustainable energy industries have witnessed significant evolution and growth. Hydraulic fracturing, fossil fuel reserve increases, the increasing popularity of hybrid and all-electric vehicles, and the decreasing cost of solar power already have had a significant impact on energy usage patterns worldwide. Updated and revised to reflect those and other key developments, this new edition features expanded coverage of topics covered in the first edition, as well as entirely new chapters on hydraulic fracturing and fossil fuels, hybrid and all-electric vehicles, and more.

  • Begins with a fascinating look at the changing face of global energy economy
  • Features chapters devoted to virtually all sources of alternative energy and energy systems
  • Offers technical discussions of hydropower, wind, passive solar and solar-thermal, photovoltaics, fuel cells, CHP systems, geothermal, ocean energy, biomass, and nuclear
  • Contains updated chapter review questions, homework problems, and a thoroughly revised solutions manual, available on the companion website

While Alternative Energy Systems and Applications, Second Edition is an ideal textbook/reference for advanced undergraduate and graduate level engineering courses in energy-related subjects, it is also an indispensable professional resource for engineers and technicians working in areas related to the development of alternative/renewable energy systems.

Carbon Capture and Storage: Technologies, Policies, Economics, and Implementation Strategies

Carbon Capture and Storage: Technologies, Policies, Economics, and Implementation Strategies Lowest new price: $101.35
Lowest used price: $40.00
List price: $215.00
Author: Saud M. Al-Fattah

This book focuses on issues related to a suite of technologies known as “Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS),” which can be used to capture and store underground large amounts of industrial CO2 emissions. It addresses how CCS should work, as well as where, why, and how these technologies should be deployed, emphasizing the gaps to be filled in terms of research and development, technology, regulations, economics, and public acceptance.

The book is divided into three parts. The first part helps clarify the global context in which greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can be analyzed, highlights the importance of fossil-fuel producing and consuming nations in positively driving clean fossil-fuel usage, and discusses the applicability of this technology on a global and regional level in a timely yet responsible manner. The second part provides a comprehensive overview of present and future technologies for the three elements of the CCS chain: CO2 capture, transport, and geological storage. The third part addresses the key drivers for CCS deployment worldwide. It provides analysis and assessment of the economic, regulatory, social, and environmental aspects associated with CCS development and deployment on a global scale. It offers a somewhat different perspective on CCS deployment by highlighting the environmental and socio-economic costs and benefits of CCS solutions compared to alternatives.

The book concludes with potential options and guidelines for sustainable and responsible CCS scale-up as a way to address prevailing global energy, environment, and climate concerns.

Author: Emily Hawbaker

Humankind needs to rethink how it uses energy more than ever. Energy Lab for Kids prepares young minds for future challenged by giving them the groundwork they'll need.

Energy Lab for Kids offers 40 discovery-filled and thought-provoking energy projects by Emily Hawbaker, a science educator from the NEED (National Energy Education Development) project. Each chapter contains scientific explanations, discoveries, and hands-on knowledge that make learning fun.

Energy Lab for Kids is more than just a random collection of science experiments that kids can do in the classroom, kitchen, or backyard. The goal: to explore and discover real energy solutions. The chapters cross all categories--from steam, electricity, and chemical reactions, to water, solar, and wind power, allowing kids to compare and test the different sources and to discover their strengths and failings. Why is one source of energy is more efficient for a one situation but not for another? How come two energy sources combined might work better than a single source? Which sources are renewable?

Additionally, the projects are geared to understanding actual issues in the news today. There is an emphasis on inventive exploration throughout the books, so that kids may learn the reward of discovering that creativity leads to breakthroughs.

A solid, quantitative, practical introduction to a wide rangeof renewable energy systems—in a completely updated, newedition

The second edition of Renewable and Efficient Electric PowerSystems provides a solid, quantitative, practical introductionto a wide range of renewable energy systems. For each topic,essential theoretical background is introduced, practicalengineering considerations associated with designing systems andpredicting their performance are provided, and methods forevaluating the economics of these systems are presented. While thebook focuses on the fastest growing, most promising wind and solartechnologies, new material on tidal and wave power, small-scalehydroelectric power, geothermal and biomass systems is introduced.Both supply-side and demand-side technologies are blended in thefinal chapter, which introduces the emerging smart grid. As thefraction of our power generated by renewable resources increases,the role of demand-side management in helping maintain grid balanceis explored.

Renewable energy systems have become mainstream technologies andare now, literally, big business. Throughout this edition, moredepth has been provided on the financial analysis of large-scaleconventional and renewable energy projects. While grid-connectedsystems dominate the market today, off-grid systems are beginningto have a significant impact on emerging economies whereelectricity is a scarce commodity. Considerable attention is paidto the economics of all of these systems.

This edition has been completely rewritten, updated, andreorganized. New material has been presented both in the form ofnew topics as well as in greater depth in some areas. The sectionon the fundamentals of electric power has been enhanced, makingthis edition a much better bridge to the more advanced courses inpower that are returning to many electrical engineering programs.This includes an introduction to phasor notation, more emphasis onreactive power as well as real power, more on power converter andinverter electronics, and more material on generator technologies.Realizing that many students, as well as professionals, in thisincreasingly important field may have modest electrical engineeringbackgrounds, early chapters develop the skills and knowledgenecessary to understand these important topics without the need forsupplementary materials.

With numerous completely worked examples throughout, the bookhas been designed to encourage self-instruction. The book includesworked examples for virtually every topic that lends itself toquantitative analysis. Each chapter ends with a problem set thatprovides additional practice. This is an essential resource for amixed audience of engineering and other technology-focusedindividuals.
