Book Description

Here's your opportunity to look into the future of energy technologies, with emphasis on alternative, or non-conventional technologies, their potential impacts, and the technical, economic and policy issues that will affect their successful integration into global energy markets. Over the past several years, industry and government have turned to a strategic planning technique called "roadmapping" to help assess future energy management practices and technologies. This book considers energy management and technology development over the next several decades by exploring data from these energy technology roadmaps. International in scope, the book examines both the technical and non-technical aspects of emerging technologies. Detailed technology assessments for specific alternative energy resources are presented. An overview of the problems associated with conventional energy consumption is included, as well as an insightful discussion of technology implementation issues from the author's own well-informed and cautiously optimistic perspective
