Get Energy... Beyond Oil PDF

By Katherine Blundell,Fraser Armstrong

because the Earth's oil offer runs out, and the consequences of weather switch threaten countries and their populations, the quest for carbon-neutral resources of power turns into extra vital and more and more pressing. This publication makes a speciality of ideas to the power challenge, and never simply the matter itself. It describes the foremost energy-generation applied sciences presently below improvement, and offers an authoritative precis of the present prestige of every one. It stresses the necessity for a balanced portfolio of other power applied sciences. convinced strategies may be extra applicable than others specifically destinations, as a result ameliorations in availability of common assets resembling sun, wind, wave, tidal and geothermal. moreover, nuclear strategies (both fission and fusion), in addition to applied sciences similar to gas cells, photovoltaics, man made photosynthesis and hydrogen (as an power carrier), all have a possible function to play. A cutting-edge critique of strength potency in development layout is usually integrated. every one bankruptcy is written through an stated overseas specialist and offers a non-technical evaluate of the competing and complementary ways to power iteration.

Broad in scope and finished in remedy, Energy..beyond Oil presents an authoritative synthesis of the medical and technological matters that are necessary to the survival of the human race within the close to destiny. The e-book might be of curiosity and use to graduate scholars and researchers in all components of power stories, and also will be hugely helpful for policy-makers and pros within the environmental zone in addition to a extra basic readership who desire to research extra approximately this tremendous topical subject.

Download e-book for kindle: Strom 4.0: Innovationen für die deutsche Stromwende (German by Maubach

By Maubach

Im Jahr 2013 deckte Deutschland seinen Primärenergiebedarf nur zu ca. 12 Prozent aus erneuerbaren Energiequellen; im Jahr 2050 sollen es aber 60 Prozent sein. Die Darstellung, wie und ob dies gelingen kann, ist Ziel dieses Buches. Zum einen müssen bereits bekannte Technologien, die rapide kostengünstiger werden, und neue Geschäftsmodelle verfolgt werden. Zum anderen sind kommenden Lösungen gefragt, die z. B. Solartechnik mit Wärmepumpen, Batterien, Kleinstkraftwerke auf Brennstoffzellenbasis and so forth vereinen. Wie diese durch speziellen Energietechnologien im Zuge des globalen traits des Internets der Dinge flankiert werden ist ein weiteres Thema. Ebenso wie die Fragestellung wie neue Wettbewerber die Stromwirtschaft beleben und die etablierten Unternehmen herausfordern.
