About this book

The availability of clean renewable energy is the defining challenge of the 21st century, and wind will lead the way. Internationally acclaimed wind-energy expert Paul Gipe is as soberly critical of past mistakes as he is convincingly optimistic about the future. Gipe explains why such a startlingly straight-forward solution is do-able, how it can be accomplished much sooner than most realise, and how it will help resuscitate our industrial infrastructure, create jobs and generate economic opportunity. This thoroughly revised and expanded edition is the essential primer on wind for consumers, advocates and policy makers, and includes a new chapter on community wind, an exciting option for many who might otherwise struggle to put a small wind turbine in their garden, or worse, on their roof.

Contents

Technology. Wind Energy Basics. Estimating Performance. Siting. Off the Grid. Interconnection. Community Wind. Investing in Wind Energy. The Challenge.

Biography

Paul Gipe has written extensively about renewable energy for both the popular and trade press. He has also lectured widely on wind energy and how to minimize its impact on the environment and the communities of which it is a part. For his efforts, the World Wind Energy Association presented Gipe with their World Wind Energy Award in 2008, the World Renewable Energy Congress honored him as a "pioneer" in 1998, and the American Wind Energy Association named him as the industry's "person of the year" in 1988.
