Clean Energy presents a broad survey of the energy problems that will face society over the coming decades and their potential solutions.
The book emphasises the importance of developing a strategy for the world’s future energy supply and takes into account, among other factors, the finite supplies of natural gas and petroleum, the increasing consumption of fuel by developing countries, greenhouse gas emissions, concerns over pollution through burning coal and the barriers affecting the deployment of renewable energy.
It moves on to assess the various renewable technologies, from biomass to wind energy and looks at them within the context of present and projected world production of energy up to 2020.
The book is an accessible and authoritative account of complex and pressing issues, and will appeal to those with an interest in the paradox of rising energy use and increasing environmental legislation.
