Description

Energy is the mainstay of industrial societies, and without an adequate supply of energy the social, political and economic stability of nations is put into jeopardy. With supplies of inexpensive fossil fuels decreasing, and climate change factors becoming more threatening, the need to conserve energy and move steadily to more sustainable energy sources is more urgent than ever before. The updated Second Edition of this successful handbook includes chapters from leading experts on the economics and fiscal management of energy, with a focus on the tools available to advance efficiency and conservation measures. Updated coverage of renewable energy sources, energy storage technologies, energy audits for buildings and building systems, and demand-side management is provided. The appendix of the handbook provides extensive data resources for analysis and calculation.

Reviews

"The book describes sustainable energy efficient technologies and processes in buildings and in the industry as well as in electrical systems to achieve desirable levels of energy savings. This helps in green development mechanism. The economics methods can adequately be used to calculate the cost of energy saving methods and technologies and manage the same in an environment friendly manner."

—Professor N. K. Bansal, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi

"A book for the Design Community at Project Level, presented to meet Post Kyoto scenario. An excellent decision supporting guide in Energy Efficiency and Conservation for those who will be instrumental in heralding the new economic order."

— Ajith P. de Alwis, University of Moratuwa, Moratuwa, Sri Lanka

"It covers the main aspects of what is needed to be known for energy management in buildings. The fact that chapters are presented by different authors according with their expertise makes the content to be strong and updated. The demand-side management (Chapter 13) is a relevant topic."

—Nelson Fumo, The University of Texas at Tyler, USA

"The Energy Management and Conservation Handbook is a necessary component of the "toolbox" that all the energy engineering students, researchers and practitioners should have."

— Vincenzo Bianco, University of Genoa, Italy
