America's Energy Future Panel on Electricity from Renewable Resources; National Research Counci. NASPress, 2010. 387 p. - ISBN:030913708X, 9780309137089This issue examines the technical potential for electric power generation with alternative sources such as wind, solar-photovoltaic, geothermal, solar-thermal, hydroelectric, and other renewable sources. The book focuses on those renewable sources that show the most promise for initial commercial deployment within 10 years and will lead to a substantial impact on the U.S. energy system.A quantitative characterization of technologies, this book lays out expectations of costs, performance, and impacts, as well as barriers and research and development needs. In addition to a principal focus on renewable energy technologies for power generation. The book addresses the challenges of incorporating such technologies into the power grid, as well as potential improvements in the national electricity grid that could enable better and more extensive utilization of wind, solar-thermal, solar photovoltaics, and other renewable technologies.Contents Summary Introduction Background Current Status of Renewable Electricity Generation Reference Case Projection of Future Renewable Electricity Generation in the United States Issues of Scale Approach and Scope of This Report References Resource Base 2007 Baseline Values Wind Power Solar Power Geothermal Power Hydropower Biopower Findings References Renewable Electricity Generation Technologies Wind Power Solar Photovoltaic Power Concentrating Solar Power Geothermal Power Hydropower Biopower Enhancing Technologies for Electricity System Operation Findings References Economics of Renewable Electricity The Value of Renewables Costs and Economics of Renewable Electricity Policies and Practices That Affect the Economics of Renewable Electricity Generation Estimates of Current Costs Costs in 2020 Analysis of 2020 Cost Projections Findings References Annex Environmental Impacts of Renewable Electricity Generation Large-Scale Impacts from Life-Cycle Assessment Local Environmental Impacts—Siting and Permitting Findings References Annex Deployment of Renewable Electric Energy Deployment Capacity Considerations Renewable Electricity Integration Renewable Energy Markets Deployment Risk and Related Issues Findings References Scenarios Objectives for Scenarios Examples of High-Penetration Scenarios Scenarios Coupling Renewables to Energy Markets Through Carbon Policies Findings References, Appendixes A America’s Energy Future Project B Panel Biographical Information C Presentations to the Panel D Description of State Renewables Portfolio Standards E Attributes of Life-Cycle Assessment F Atmospheric Emissions from Fossil-Fuel and Nuclear Electricity Generation
