Book Description

Addressing the needs of engineers, energy planners, and policy makers, CRC Handbook of Energy Efficiency provides up-to-date information on all important issues related to efficient energy use, including:

  • Efficient energy technologies
  • Economics
  • Utility restructuring
  • Integrated resource planning
  • Energy efficient building design
  • Industrial energy conservation
  • Wind energy
  • Solar thermal systems
  • Photovoltaics
  • Renewable energy
  • Cogeneration
  • Fossil fuel cost projections

    The rapid changes that characterize the technology of energy generation systems, and the forthcoming competition among energy producers, make this handbook a must for anyone involved in the science, technology, or policy of energy. The 53 expert contributors from industry, government, and universities, and the 600+ figures and tables make CRC Handbook of Energy Efficiency a professional and valuable resource.
