Energy for Future Presidents: The Science Behind the Headlines by Richard A. Muller "Energy for Future Presidents" is the educational, informative and accessible book on energy. The book covers popular topics on energy: energy disasters, energy landscape (modes of transportation), and "new" technologies/5(). Cutting carbon emissions is urgent but very challenging in wealthy democracies. Energy for the Future analyzes the changing contexts, imperatives and fault lines, and proposes ways forwards. Greater public engagement and a new approach to markets are vital, but traditional concerns with energy security and economic efficiency cannot be set aside. Using the principle that extracting energy from the environment always involves some type of impact on the environment, The Future of Energy discusses the sources, technologies, and tradeoffs involved in meeting the world's energy needs. A historical, scientific, and technical background set the stage for discussions on a wide range of energy sources, including conventional fossil fuels like oil, gas, and coal, as well as emerging renewable sources like Cited by: Future Energy focuses on all the types of energy available to us, taking into account a future involving a reduction in oil and gas production and the rapidly increasing amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. It is unique in the genre of books of similar title in that each chapter has been written by a scientist or engineer who is an expert in his or her field/5(17).
With contributions from some of the world's leading experts in energy finance, the book documents how investors are spending over US$ billion each year on financing renewable energy and positioning themselves in a global investment market that will continue to expand at double-digit growth rates through the end of the decade/5(7). Future Energy: Improved, Sustainable and Clean Options for Our Planet, Third Edition provides scientists and decision-makers with the knowledge they need to understand the relative importance and magnitude of various energy production methods in order to make the energy decisions necessary for sustaining development and dealing with climate change. The third edition of Future Energy looks at the present energy situation and extrapolates to future . A free e-book featuring 36 essays by experts in energy offers fresh thinking on the challenges of moving towards a cleaner energy future in the 21st century. This book provides a lot of fundamental information about how people produce energy around the world. Besides some traditional ways like fossil fuels, hydroelectric power, geothermal power and natural gas, I have never heard about nano power or living materials/5.
Presents an overview on the different aspects of the energy value chain and discusses the issues that future energy is facing. This book covers energy and the energy policy choices which face society. The book presents easy-to-grasp information and analysis, and includes statistical data for energy production, consumption and simple formulas. The book SuperFuel: Thorium, the Green Energy Source for the Future (MacSci) details a very convincing case for developing Thorium Molten Sodium Reactors as soon as possible to fill the gaps in energy generation world-wide. This will provide a green, safe energy source using an abundant fuel which will also solve the problem of present Uranium waste disposal/5(). Future Energy, Second Edition provides scientists and decision makers with the knowledge they need to understand the relative importance and magnitude of various energy production methods in order to make the energy decisions needed for sustaining development and dealing with climate change. The books included on this list will help you understand how we built our energy system -- and what it will take to overhaul it. We want to hear what you think about this : Alexis C. Madrigal.
