Brought to you by the creator of numerous bestselling handbooks, the Handbook of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy provides a thorough grounding in the analytic techniques and technological developments that underpin renewable energy use and environmental protection. The handbook emphasizes the engineering aspects of energy conservation and renewable energy. Taking a world view, the editors discuss key topics underpinning energy efficiency and renewable energy systems. They provide content at the forefront of the contemporary debate about energy and environmental futures. This is vital information for planning a secure energy future. Practical in approach, the book covers technologies currently available or expected to be ready for implementation in the near future. It sets the stage with a survey of current and future world-wide energy issues, then explores energy policies and incentives for conservation and renewable energy, covers economic assessment methods for conservation and generation technologies, and discusses the environmental costs of various energy generation technologies. The book goes on to examine distributed generation and demand side management procedures and gives a perspective on the efficiencies, economics, and environmental costs of fossil and nuclear technologies. Highlighting energy conservation as the cornerstone of a successful national energy strategy, the book covers energy management strategies for industry and buildings, HVAC controls, co-generation, and advances in specific technologies such as motors, lighting, appliances, and heat pumps. It explores energy storage and generation from renewable sources and underlines the role of infrastructure security and risk analysis in planning future energy transmission and storage systems. These features and more make the Handbook of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy the tool for designing the energy sources of the future.

Preface to Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Handbook

The aim of this handbook is to offer info crucial for engineers, power professionals, and coverage makers to plan a safe power future.

The time horizon of the handbook is restricted to roughly 20 years as a result of environmental circumstances fluctuate, new applied sciences emerge, and priorities of society repeatedly change.

It’s due to this fact not potential to make dependable projections past that interval. Given this time horizon, the e book offers solely with applied sciences which might be at the moment out there or which might be anticipated to be prepared for implementation within the close to future.

Energy is a mainstay of an industrial society. Because the inhabitants of the world will increase and folks attempt for the next lifestyle, the quantity of power essential to maintain our society is ever growing.

On the identical time, the supply of nonrenewable sources, notably liquid fuels, is quickly shrinking. Due to this fact, there may be basic settlement that to keep away from an power disaster, the quantity of power wanted to maintain society must be contained and, to the extent potential, renewable sources must be used.

As a consequence, conservation and renewable power (RE) applied sciences are going to extend in significance and dependable, up-to-date details about their availability, effectivity, and value is critical for planning a safe power future.

The timing of this handbook additionally coincides with a brand new impetus for the usage of RE. This impetus comes from RE insurance policies in Europe, Japan, China, India, and Brazil and the emergence of renewable portfolio requirements (RPS) in lots of states of america.

Germany launched electrical energy feed-in legal guidelines that worth electrical energy produced from RE sources a lot larger than that from typical sources, which have created demand for photovoltaic and wind energy.

Following the success of Germany, different European international locations launched feed-in legal guidelines, which accelerated the deployment of RE in Europe. Different international locations, corresponding to China and India, have adopted modified variations of feed-in legal guidelines, whereby RE energy corporations bid reductions to the feed-in tariffs decided by the governments.

RPS insurance policies adopted by many states in United State require {that a} sure proportion of power used be derived from renewable sources. RPSs and different incentives for RE are at the moment in place in 34 of the 50 states of america and the District of Columbia (DC) and Puerto Rico.

The main points of the RPS for RE and conservation instituted by state governments fluctuate, however all of them primarily provide a chance for the business to compete for the brand new markets.

Thus, to achieve success, renewable applied sciences must turn into extra environment friendly, dependable, and cost-effective.

RPSs have already demonstrated that they’ll cut back market boundaries and stimulate the event of RE.

The usage of conservation and RE may help meet vital nationwide objectives for gas range, worth stability, financial improvement, environmental safety, and power safety and thereby play an important function in nationwide power coverage.

The anticipated development fee of RE from portfolio requirements and different stimulants in america is spectacular.

On account of numerous coverage initiatives on this planet, the worldwide development in photo voltaic photovoltaics (PV) manufacturing has averaged over 43% per yr from 2000 to 2012 and 61% from 2007 to 2012, with Europe displaying the utmost development.

The typical annual development in worldwide wind power capability from 2001 to 2012 was over 25%. The typical annual development in america over the identical interval was 37.7%.

Extra lately, China has elevated its capability quicker than another nation. China accounted for greater than 1 / 4 of the worldwide wind capability in 2012.

With acceptable rules and cautious planning, the technical info on this handbook will guarantee an orderly and peaceable transition to a sustainable power future.


Energy is the mainstay of industrial societies, and without an adequate supply of energy the social, political and economic stability of nations is put into jeopardy. With supplies of inexpensive fossil fuels decreasing, and climate change factors becoming more threatening, the need to conserve energy and move steadily to more sustainable energy sources is more urgent than ever before. The updated Second Edition of this successful handbook includes chapters from leading experts on the economics and fiscal management of energy, with a focus on the tools available to advance efficiency and conservation measures. Updated coverage of renewable energy sources, energy storage technologies, energy audits for buildings and building systems, and demand-side management is provided. The appendix of the handbook provides extensive data resources for analysis and calculation.
