An in-depth understanding of energy technology, sources,
conversion, storage, transport and conservation is crucial for
developing a sustainable and economically viable energy
infrastructure. This need, for example, is addressed in university
courses with a special focus on the energy mix of renewable and
depletable energy resources.
Energy makes our lives comfortable, and the existence of
amenities such as heaters, cars, warm water, household appliances
and electrical light is characteristic for a developed economy.
Supplying the industrial or individual energy consumer with energy
24 hours a day is a non-trivial challenge, especially in times
where the energy is coming from very diverse resources such as oil,
gas, nuclear fuels, wind, sun, or waves.
This book gives physics, chemistry, engineering, and materials
science students insights in the basics of energy and energy
technology. It was developed along a successful course for advanced
bachelor or graduate students and is written in a didactic style.
The problems and solutions at the end of each chapter are ideal for
exams and make self-study easy. Topics covered include energy from
fossil and nuclear fuels, renewable sources, energy transport,
storage, and conservation.
