Biography

Danny Harvey is a Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Toronto. He began his career over 25 years ago in the area of computer climate simulation and analysis, but has gradually shifted to the analysis of energy systems and prospects for stabilizing atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations at relatively non-threatening levels. He is author of the Handbook on Low-Energy Buildings and Community-Integrated Energy Systems, which provides a comprehensive guide on how to design buildings to use one-quarter of the energy compared to current conventional practice.

Media reviews
'An excellent textbook for a wide range of energy-related university-level courses.' John Straube, University of Waterloo, Canada 'From understanding the Carnot Cycle in power plants and electrochemical processes in fuel cells to examining waste heat recovery within industry, this is the "go to" book for those wanting to explore the many surprising opportunities for improving energy efficiency.' John A. "Skip" Laitner, Director of Economic and Social Analysis, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy 'Scientific understanding and technological options can provide a successful approach to energy for sustainable development. Improved energy efficiency offers multiple sustainability benefits, including climate change mitigation. What are needed are political will, financial commitment and social readiness. This book is essential in today's debate.' Thomas B. Johansson, Professor, Lund University, Sweden 'Energy Efficiency and the Demand for Energy Services is remarkable for the scope of its coverage - the whole problem, not just a slice - and its depth, clarity and approachability. It will serve as an excellent textbook for a wide range of energy-related university-level courses.' John Straube, Associate Professor, Department of Civil Engineering & School of Architecture, University of Waterloo, Canada 'As energy advances to be the "front burner" issue that it needs to be and remain, texts like these are vitally needed for the new generation of energy researchers and leaders.' Daniel M. Kammen, Class of 1935 Distinguished Professor of Energy, University of California 'provides an in depth look at energy use and demand, and covers both domestic and industrial situations, transport and agriculture.' Enagri Praise for Energy and the New Reality Two-Volume Set 'The approach is detailed and technical and should be useful as a reference work... Overall, it's an outstanding package... Recommended.' Renew 'probably the best books so far on sustainable energy for serious student use' Renew
