Book Description

Originally published in 1981. Every aspect of Energy – production, conversion and use - is discussed and explained in this unique dictionary. Comprehensive and well-illustrated entries cover fossil and other types of chemical fuel; hydro-electric and nuclear power; energy conservation; solar energy of every kind; wind, wave and tidal power. Every type of nuclear reactor is described, with emphasis on the energy technologies that have the greatest relevance and future promise.

The first section is devoted to a careful explanation of the units used, with conversion tables; key concepts are precisely defined. The closing sections comprise tables of international energy statistics and a short bibliography. This is an excellent introduction and invaluable reference work for general readers, students and all workers in energy and energy-related fields.
