A solution to the climate and energy crisis
Demonstrating the feasibility of a clean, renewable global energy future, Post-Oil Energy Technology: The World’s First Solar-Hydrogen Demonstration Power Plant describes the detailed design of the first 1,000 megawatt solar power plant with hydrogen storage.
How is this possible?
Our planet receives more solar energy in about a half hour than humans use in a year. In fact, collecting solar energy on just one percent of the Sahara desert would be sufficient to meet global electricity needs. This energy can then be stored and transported in the form of hydrogen.
Converting from nonrenewable energy sources to solar-hydrogen energy
In this timely book, author Béla Lipták explains how a solar-hydrogen economy is technically feasible and cost-effective. He first outlines existing conservation technologies and renewable energy processes as well as evolving technologies, such as energy-free homes, roof shingle solar collectors, and reversible fuel cells. He goes on to discuss energy optimization techniques that could reduce the energy consumption of industrialized countries by twenty-five percent and that of third-world countries by even more. Lipták also shows that we already have the know-how—optimizing large solar power plants, providing solar energy storage in hydrogen, and operating reversible electrolyzers—to build a full-sized renewable energy demonstration plant.
It is time to harness the power of solar energy
With global energy consumption quadrupling in the last fifty years and atmospheric carbon dioxide reaching the highest level ever recorded, now is the time to prevent further damage to the planet and ensure future generations of human civilization. This book provides the facts about renewable energy, proving that it can slow global warming, stabilize our climate, eliminate the possibility of energy wars, and improve the world’s economy.
