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.
