Media reviews

"Specialists from 10 different disciplines and at least seven countries have contributed chapters to this edited collection, providing a variety of international insights into sustainable solutions ranging from energy generation and storage to improving buildings and developing smarter cities. Some past sustainability proposals are questioned, and many are analyzed in terms of whole system thinking, with the Nordic countries providing the best examples of efficiency according to specific measures. Photovoltaics, bioenergy, and offshore wind farms can generate electricity, and new supercapacitor storage (chapter 5) will soon become a replacement for battery storage. Window retrofitting (chapter 2) is a primary concern worldwide to help make buildings energy efficient. Chapter 10, contributed by a team from Denmark, argues for the leasing of kitchen appliances and other heavy equipment instead of ownership, so as to begin to create a "circular economy" emphasizing more efficient usage of resources. As organized by Stagner and Ting, the chapters have been written for engineers and policy makers who want to understand what changes toward sustainability are currently in progress worldwide. A very detailed index, along with numerous journal references and links to additional online data tables, images, and graphs, complete the volume. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates. Graduate students, faculty, and professionals."
