Renewable Energy Engineering and Technology: Principles and Practice - covers major renewable energy resources and technologies for various applications. The book is conceived as a standard reference book for students, experts, and policy-makers. It has been designed to meet the needs of these diverse groups. While covering the basics of scientific and engineering principles of thermal engineering, heat and mass transfer, fluid dynamics, and renewable energy resource assessments, the book further deals with the basics of applied technologies and design practices for following renewable energy resources.- Solar (thermal and photovoltaic)- Wind - Bio-energy including liquid biofuels and municipal solid waste- Other renewables such as tidal, wave, and geothermalThe book is designed to fulfil the much-awaited need for a handy, scientific, and easy-to-understand comprehensive handbook for design professionals and students of renewable energy engineering courses. Besides the sheer breadth of the topics covered, what makes this well-researched book different from earlier attempts is the fact that this is based on extensive practical experiences of the editor and the authors. Thus, a lot of emphasis has been placed on system sizing and integration. Ample solved examples using data for India make this book a relevant and an authentic reference.

The potential that biomass energy has to supplement traditional fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions has put it front and center in the plan to replace fossil-based fuels with renewable fuels. While much has been written about biomass conversions, no single textbook contains all the information needed to teach a biomass conversion course—until now. Introduction to Biomass Energy Conversions presents a comprehensive review of biomass resources available for conversion into heat, power, and biofuels. The textbook covers biomass characterization and discusses facilities, equipment, and standards (e.g. ASTM or NREL) used for analysis. It examines the range of biomass resources available for conversion and presents traditional biomass conversion processes along with extensive biomass characterization data tables, illustrations, and graphical presentations of the various biomass energy conversion processes. The author also describes how to set up a laboratory for biomass energy conversion, and presents economics and sustainability issues. Loaded with real-world examples, the text includes numerous worked examples and problems in each chapter. No one knows what the price of oil will be next year or in future decades. It is governed by many factors other than supply and demand (politics, wars, etc.), however, whatever the future of energy is, bio-fuels will play an important role. This technical guide prepares students for managing bio-refineries, no matter what type of bio-fuel is produced. It also provides practicing engineers with a resource for starting a small bio-fuel business.

The role of the energy manager has evolved significantly as the task of cutting greenhouse gas emissions from buildings has become increasingly important. Managers are now technical experts, negotiators, construction project managers, procurement specialists, efficiency advocates and often provide energy services to others. This comprehensive book covers how to: • conduct an energy audit • plan a monitoring and verification strategy • make any energy-saving campaign successful • evaluate and make the financial case for energy-saving measures • make use of free energy for lighting and managing heat loss and gain. It also contains special chapters on: • ventilation, heating and cooling • demand management through automated systems • lighting • most requirements of industrial facilities • regulatory requirements in Britain, Europe and the United States • the use of smart meters and monitoring • how to achieve zero energy buildings • the use of renewable energy. For all professional energy, building and facilities managers, energy consultants, students, trainees and academics. It takes the reader from basic concepts to the latest advanced thinking, with principles applicable anywhere in the world and in any climate.

Sometime around three million years ago, the first hominid walked on this planet. In the time which has elapsed since then, the descendant of this biped has evolved to reach the top of the food chain. Furthermore, it has manipulated other lifeforms and Earth’s resources in a manner that makes these entirely subservient to only one species, homo sapiens. In a period less than 0.007% of Earth’s age, man has dramatically altered both the biosphere and the climate. This text argues that intelligent manipulation of ‘energy’ is at the heart of human supremacy. Energy is intertwined in an intricate manner with everything that happens around us. From the very beginning, nearly three million years ago, up until today, the human race has evolved and progressed by gaining mastery and control over energy. This book presents an insightful description of the evolution of human civilization from an energy perspective, showing that ‘energy’ is the vehicle that has catapulted the human race to a commanding position on Earth. From rudimentary Stone Age tools to classical physics, from animal power to the steam engine, and from relativity and quantum theory to geo-politics and climate change, drawing upon multiple disciplines, it weaves a fascinating story of the history of “energy” in human civilization. It also discusses the “dark side” of energy, exemplified by climate change, pollution, and deforestation, which is compelling modern human civilization to once again go into an energy transition mode, as well as those forms of energy which can counteract such forces: renewable and smart energy and their associated innovations.
