Energy technology & engineering

This book provides an overview of leading alternate energy sources and technologies. It addresses renewable sources, including solar energy (solar thermal and solar photovoltaic), wind energy, biomass energy, geothermal energy, ocean energy and samll hydropower, as well as nonrenewable sources, including chemical energy(batteries, hydrogen energy and fuel cells), nuclear energy, magnetohydrodynamics, thermoelectricity, therminonics, alkali metal thermal electric conversion, and energy storage.
