In the wake of global climate change and increasing geopolitical
instability of oil supply an accelerated transition to renewable
energy system gets increasingly important, if not unavoidable.
This book encompasses reports of select energy strategies as
well as in-depth technical information of the already or
potentially involved technologies. On the one hand, it compiles the
description of technologies that already proved to be game changers
of the energy supply in some countries, i.e. solar, wind, biomass
and hydro power, with a strong focus on data, facts and figures
that are needed to design a renewable energy system for a region or
a country. On the other hand, this book compiles many more
technologies that bear the potential to become game changes in some
regions or countries, like maritime power technologies or
geothermal energy. The focus on the whole energy system involves
particular consideration of storage technologies for the
fluctuating renewable energy input as well as an overview on energy
transportation as electrical or chemical energy. Also the end-use
of the renewable energy is considered if the energy system is
affected, like in automotive transportation via battery or fuel
Postulating climate change as a major driver for renewable
energies, the articles of the book are written assuming the
time-line of 2050 for a major CO2 reduction in order to fulfill the
UN global warming goal of 2C. Hence, technologies that have a
potential to leave the research stage by 2030 are considered since
further ten years are required for industrial development and
market penetration each. "Transition to Renewable Energy Systems"
provides specific insights for energy engineers, process engineers,
chemists, and physicists, as well as a sufficiently broad scope to
be able to understand the challenges, opportunities and
implications of a transition to renewable energy systems so that
strategies can be cast.
