About this book

This work explores a multidisciplinary approach to renewable energy, covering physical and engineering approaches and addressing economic, social, environmental, and policy issues surrounding the implementation of large-scale renewable energy systems. The author uses straightforward language and emphasizes the technical aspects and the practical applications of renewable energy, rather than math and theoretical science. The book contains case studies, examples from real world situations, to-the-point explanations, end-of-chapter questions and quizzes to reinforce learning, multiple illustrations, and a solutions manual.
