About this book

Renewable resources such as wind, solar, and geothermal are often perceived as being the answer to the fossil fuel crisis. Ironically, however, climate change may also negatively impact on these energy sources. All forms of renewable energy are somewhat sensitive to climate variation. This new compendium looks at the impact of renewable resources on climate change from a variety of perspectives.


Part I: Wind Energy and Climate Change
- Changes in Surface Wind Speed over North America from CMIP5 Model Projections and Implications for Wind Energy
- Potential Climatic Impacts and Reliability of Very Large-Scale Wind Farms

Part II: Solar Energy and Climate Change
- Trends in Downward Solar Radiation at the Surface over North America from Climate Model Projections and Implications for Solar Energy
- Climate Change Impact on Photovoltaic Energy Output: The Case of Greece

Part III: Hydropower and Climate Change
- Assessing Climate Change Impacts on Global Hydropower
- Water Constraints on European Power Supply under Climate Change: Impacts on Electricity Prices
- How Will Hydroelectric Power Generation Develop under Climate Change Scenarios? A Case Study in the Upper Danube Basin

Part IV: Geothermal Energy and Climate Change
- Geothermal Power Growth 1995-2013: A Comparison with Other Renewables
- Modeling of an Air Conditioning System with Geothermal Heat Pump for a Residential Building
- Recovery of Sewer Waste Heat vs
- Heat Pumps Using Borehole Geothermal Energy Storage for a Small Community Water Heating System: Comparison and Feasibility Analysis

Part V: Efficiency and Feasibility of Renewable Energies
- Development of a Wind Directly Forced Heat Pump and Its Efficiency Analysis
- The Feasibility of Wind and Solar Energy Application for Oil and Gas Offshore Platform
- Economic Feasibility Analysis of the Application of Geothermal Energy Facilities to Public Building Structures
