About this book

Clean Energy presents a broad survey of the energy problems facing society over the coming decades and the prospects for their solution. The book emphasizes the importance of developing a strategy for the worlds future energy supply. The strategy must take into account; the finite supplies of natural gas and petroleum; the increased consumption of fuel by developing economies; the concern over greenhouse gas emissions; the pollution caused by burning coal (especially coal with a high sulphur content); the difficulties and costs of extracting unconventional fossil fuels; and the technical sociological and cost barriers that restrict the use of renewable forms of energy. Clean Energy sets the various renewable energies (wind waves solar etc) in the context of present and projected world production of energy and its use in the time-frame until 2020 and looks speculatively beyond that. It looks at the possibilities for reducing pollution from fossil fuels and tackles the serious problem of how to store energy in order to smooth out fluctuations in supply and demand.

I recommend this monograph to everyone involved in the energy debate including politicians and the public. An informed person of the technology available to them is in a better position to contribute to the debate than one with vested interests and blind to other options. -- Chemistry & Industry, Issue 14, 18 July 2005 (Gary Acres) Chemistry and Industry This is the book for me.
