Renewable energy

The facts
There is a vast interest in renewable energy but the role various technologies will play in the transition to a low-carbon future are in the main uncertain. This book sets out the facts: how the technologies work, where and to what extent they are currently employed and where the greatest potential lies. It covers all major fields - solar electricity, solar thermal, solar architecture, bioenergy, wind, geothermal, hydropower, as well as new energy technologies and also includes sections on how best to promote the uptake of renewables and answers to common questions and opposition. The authors provide a number of German-sourced, internationally relevant examples and strategies which have become significant in promoting renewable energy. An essential source for understanding and promoting renewable energy.
