CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Following the success of its predecessor, this second edition of The Future of
Energy Use provides essential analysis of the use of different forms of energy
and their environmental and social impacts. It examines conventional, nuclear
and renewable sources and technologies, using relevant case studies and
providing a vital link between technology and related policy issues. The new
edition has been comprehensively developed and updated, including new text,
diagrams and tables, with entire new sections that reflect the significant
changes that have occurred since the first edition. New material includes: a
stronger focus on climate change policy and energy security; a discussion of
the long run marginal costs of oil; coverage of the biofuels debate in both the
developed and developing worlds; an outline of developments in the built
environment (including transport issues); and the relationship between
behaviour and energy use. It reviews policy shifts with relation to energy
efficiency, carbon capture and storage, combined heat and power, and combined
cycle gas turbines. There is new coverage of nuclear waste, storage and
proliferation, and new material on microgeneration and biofuels, as well as
essential new information on carbon markets and the hydrogen economy. The
result is a unique introduction and guide to all the vital issues within energy
for students, academics and professionals new to the field.
