Book Description

Hybrid Energy Systems: Strategy for Industrial Decarbonization demonstrates how hybrid energy and processes can decarbonize energy industry needs for power and heating and cooling. It describes the role of hybrid energy and processes in nine major industry sectors and discusses how hybrid energy can offer sustainable solutions in each.

  • Introduces the basics and examples of hybrid energy systems
  • Examines hybrid energy and processes in coal, oil and gas, nuclear, building, vehicle, manufacturing and industrial processes, computing and portable electronic, district heating and cooling, and water sectors
  • Shows that hybrid processes can improve efficiency and that hybrid energy can effectively insert renewable fuels in the energy industry
  • Serves as a companion text to the author’s book Hybrid Power: Generation, Storage, and Grids

Written for advanced students, researchers, and industry professionals involved in energy-related processes and plants, this book offers latest research and practical strategies for application of the innovative field of hybrid energy.
