Revision of the authors previous book: Sustainable nuclear power (2007)
Includes bibliographical references and index.
1. Energy and Civilization -- 2. Sources of Energy -- 3. Energy and Sustainability -- 4. Energy Conversion and Storage -- 5. The New Electric Vehicle Society -- 6. Energy in Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning -- 7. Electrical Grid Power and Strength Diversity -- 8. The Future in Nuclear Power -- 9. Options for Remote Locations -- 10. Strategies and Critical Paths to Sustainability.
Presents an overview of current renewable energy sources, challenges, and future trends. A primary purpose of this bok is to provide perspectives on energy utilization, planning, and paths to sustainability that are free of special interests - perspectives that can be verified by facts and common sense. The emphasis of this book revision remains nuclear power because of the extent to which it is misunderstood. Howver, the impact of tight oil production, wind power, new natural gas reserves, and even new modes of transportation have warranted an increase in the covering of these topics in this new edition.
