About this book

This initial volume in the SAGE Series on Green Society provides an overview of the social and environmental dimensions of our energy system, and the key organizations, policy tools, and technologies that can help shape a green-energy economy. Each entry draws on scholarship from across numerous social sciences, natural and physical sciences, and engineering. The urgency of climate change underscores the importance of getting the right technologies, policies and incentives, and social checks-and-balances in place.

The green energy challenge faced by our civilization will require many minds and a great effort on all fronts. We hope this collection of articles can provide those with a sparking interest in the topic to participate in what will hopefully become an equitable and intergenerational conversation about the impacts of our energy consumption and how to make it cleaner and greener. Via its 150 signed entries, Green Energy: An A-to-Z Guide provides students, professors, and researchers an invaluable reference, presented in an electronic-only format, to the world's energy future.

Media reviews

"[...] Green Energy: An A-to-Z Guide, notable for authoritative content in an accessible electronic format, is highly recommended for undergraduate and large public libraries."
- Nancy Cannon, Booklist July

"Green Energy is one volume in a new series of online encyclopedias titled The SAGE Reference Series on Green Society: Toward a Sustainable Future. This should be a useful set of publications on a timely topic [...] Perhaps the most valuable aspect is the capability of searching on hyperlinks. Numerous cross-references are embedded in the various indexes and entries [...] Written by experts in each field, some 150 signed entries give the history of a topic, offer some photos, and discuss how to improve or address the issues. Entries are clearly written in a relatively nontechnical style. An excellent and extensive resource guide lists key books, journal titles, and Web sites [...] This is a comprehensive guide to the traditional aspects of energy and to future roles for consumers and energy providers. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels."
- N. Kobzina, Choice
