Kurzbeschreibung

Despite global concerns over dwindling resources, climate changeand carbon dioxide emissions, fossil fuels still account for morethan 80% of the world's energy demands. As resources diminishand demand increases from rapidly developing nations such as Chinaand India, the threat to both our environment and the security ofour energy supply continues to grow. There is an immediate need tomove towards a clean and more sustainable energy model, and thistransition will require unprecedented innovation.
Energy & Climate: How to achieve a successful energytransition covers all the technology options available andsummarises key information from the International Energy Agency andother leading organisations, providing a detailed technologicalroadmap for this transition which aims to avoid both ecological andeconomic disaster. Topics that are analysed and discussed inthis edition are:
* More energy efficient technologies
* New developments in fossil fuels
* Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy andbiofuels
* Hydrogen as an energy vector
* New energy storage systems
* Hybrid vehicles
* Capture and long-term storage of carbon dioxide
Written and translated by the former Director for SustainableDevelopment at IFP, Energy & Climate: How to achieve asuccessful energy transition is an essential introductory bookfor scientists and researchers working in energy andclimate-related topics as well as all those interested in how tomanage a sustainable energy supply while still reducing harmfulcarbon dioxide emissions.
