Alternative Energy: Sources and Systems

Donald Steeby

"Stands out from the crowd as an easy-to-read resource on current, mainstream technologies as well as those on the horizon"

The skyrocketing demand for clean, abundant energy has resulted in a need for comprehensive information that can be used by builders, technicians, energy industry professionals, and anyone else wanting to learn about alternative forms of energy and their everyday uses.

With a vast array of information available on the subject, Alternative Energy: Sources & Systems stands out from the crowd as an easy-to-read resource on current, mainstream technologies as well as those on the horizon.

This book bridges the gap between overly simplistic information and high-level engineering materials. Instead, Alternative Energy: Sources & Systems serves as a comprehensive guide that explores solar, wind, and other sources, and the technology available to harness them.

Readers will gain a better understanding of how these systems work as well as how they are put together.

Features:
  • Coverage of all major alternative energy systems, including solar, geothermal, and wind energy.
  • Detailed illustrations and photographs provide a visual reference for complex concepts.
  • Clear, straightforward examples of theory and practical application.
  • Descriptions of cutting-edge technologies and their possible impact on the energy industry.
