Energy Systems and Sustainability: Power for a Sustainable Future - Paperback

2011, ISBN: 0199593744

[SR: 46464], Paperback, [EAN: 9780199593743], OUP Oxford, OUP Oxford, Book, [PU: OUP Oxford], 2011-12-15, OUP Oxford, How can we provide clean, safe, sustainable energy supplies for the world despite rising population levels and increasing economic development? Today, energy and sustainability are of primary concern and form the focus of this book and its companion volume, Renewable Energy. Interdisciplinary in its approach and global in its perspective, this book provides a contemporary exploration of the economic, social, environmental, and policy issues raised by current systems of energy use, as well as describing their key physical and engineering features. The historical evolution of the world's energy systems, the principles underlying their use, and their present status and future prospects are analysed, while emphasizing the important issue of sustainability. Beginning with a survey of basic energy concepts, the book describes the magnitude and patterns of human energy needs at various levels. Focus then turns to an overview of the fossil and nuclear-fuelled energy that, together with hydroelectric power and traditional biofuels, supply most of the world's commercial energy needs. Sections on economics describes the basic methods by which the monetary costs of energy are calculated, and discuss the issue of 'external' costs of energy production. The concluding chapters consider the sustainabliity problems associated with both fossil and nuclear fuel use, and ways in which they might be ameliorated by various technological and social developments. This is done in the context of a rising use of renewable energy. * Extensive coverage of the important concepts and issues underpinning modern energy production and its future prospects * Adopts an interdisciplinary approach making the text readable by engineer and policy maker alike Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Energy systems and Sustainability features: For students: * Links to sources of further information and up-to-date energy statistics * Self-assessment questions For registered adopters of, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 268091, Accounting, 659886, Biographies & Histories, 276808, Careers, 404214, E-Commerce, 268153, Economics, 275945, Law, 268290, Management, 268203, Personal Finance, 268179, Professional Finance, 659890, Reference & Education, 268314, Sales & Marketing, 268144, Small Business & Entrepreneurship, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922352, Environmental, 278122, Civil Engineering, 278115, Engineering & Technology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278153, Energy, 278150, Electrical, 278115, Engineering & Technology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278180, Energy Technology, 278181, Alternative Energy, 922300, Fossil Fuels, 278189, Nuclear Power, 278115, Engineering & Technology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278096, Natural Resources Management, 278080, Environment & Ecology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 571052, Energy Engineering, 564346, Engineering, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

ID: 14074726

Interdisciplinary in its approach and global in its perspective, Energy Systems and Sustainability: Power for a Sustainable Future, Second Edition, provides a contemporary exploration of the economic, social, environmental, and policy issues raised by current systems of energy use. Emphasizing the important issue of sustainability, it analyzes the historical evolution of the world's energy systems, the principles underlying their use, and their present status and future prospects. Beginning with a survey of basic energy concepts, the book describes the magnitude and patterns of human energy needs at various levels. It moves on to an overview of the fossil and nuclear-fuelled energy that, together with hydroelectric power and traditional biofuels, supply most of the world's commercial energy needs. Sections on economics describe the basic methods through which the monetary costs of energy are calculated, also considering the "external" costs of energy production. Finally, the book looks at the sustainability issues associated with both fossil- and nuclear-fuel use--and considers the technological advancements and social developments that might solve these problems. Providing a truly interdisciplinary approach, Energy Systems and Sustainability: Power for a Sustainable Future, Second Edition, is ideal for undergraduate engineering students and undergraduates studying policy making. FEATURES * The only text to provide a fresh, contemporary perspective on energy and sustainability for an undergraduate audience * Provides extensive coverage of both fossil fuels and nuclear power, both in the context of an increasing use of renewable energy * Engaging boxes throughout the text present clear explanations of key technologies, underlying physics, and other more advanced topics NEW TO THIS EDITION * International comparisons of key energy statistics now include India and China (in addition to the UK, USA, France, and Denmark) * Increased coverage of the "peak oil" debate and the environmental implications of China's increasing energy use * Significantly revised and expanded exploration of the sustainability of fossil fuel use, with new material on carbon capture and storage, the social cost of carbon, hybrid electric cars, and prospects for a hydrogen economy * Enhanced pedagogical features--including chapter overviews and end-of-chapter review questions COMPANION WEBSITE (www.oup.com/uk/orc/bin/9780199593743) * Resources for Students: Weblinks to sources of further information and up-to-date energy statistics and self-assessment questions linked to topics in the book * Resources for Instructors (available to adopting instructors): Downloadable figures from the book Energy Systems and Sustainability: Power for a Sustainable Future Everett, Bob / Boyle, Godrey / Peake, Stephen, Oxford University Press, USA
