Transition to Renewable Energy Systems

Buy

In the wake of global climate change and increasing geopolitical instability of oil supply an accelerated transition to renewable energy system gets increasingly important, if not unavoidable.

This book encompasses reports of select energy strategies as well as in-depth technical information of the already or potentially involved technologies. On the one hand, it compiles the description of technologies that already proved to be game changers of the energy supply in some countries, i.e. solar, wind, biomass and hydro power, with a strong focus on data, facts and figures that are needed to design a renewable energy system for a region or a country. On the other hand, this book compiles many more technologies that bear the potential to become game changes in some regions or countries, like maritime power technologies or geothermal energy. The focus on the whole energy system involves particular consideration of storage technologies for the fluctuating renewable energy input as well as an overview on energy transportation as electrical or chemical energy. Also the end-use of the renewable energy is considered if the energy system is affected, like in automotive transportation via battery or fuel cell vehicles.

Postulating climate change as a major driver for renewable energies, the articles of the book are written assuming the time-line of 2050 for a major CO2 reduction in order to fulfill the UN global warming goal of 2°C. Hence, technologies that have a potential to leave the research stage by 2030 are considered since further ten years are required for industrial development and market penetration each. Transition to Renewable Energy Systems provides specific insights for energy engineers, process engineers, chemists, and physicists, as well as a sufficiently broad scope to be able to understand the challenges, opportunities and implications of a transition to renewable energy systems so that strategies can be cast.
