Daim T.U., Kim J., Iskin I., Taha R.A., van Blommestein K.C. (Eds.) Innovation, Technology, and Knowledge Management: Policies and Programs for Sustainable Energy Innovations: Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency
Springer International Publishing, Switzerland, 2015, 454 pages, ISBN: 978-3-319-16032-0, 978-3-319-16033-7As the world looks for alternative energy resources, renewable energy and energy effi ciency shine as the most appropriate alternative solutions. However, there are technical, political, social, economic, and environmental challenges. This volume investigates these challenges.Chapters 1 through 3 review policies which are likely to increase the adoption of renewable energy technologies. These three chapters provide a good introduction to the different policies for different types of energy sources as well as an approach on how to evaluate these policies for different cases.Chapters 4 through 9 present cases around the evaluation of renewable energy. Chapter 4 presents a wind energy case from Pakistan. This case presents a technical approach to assess the wind potential. Chapter 5 presents a technology assessment framework evaluating conversion of solid waste to energy. Chapters 6 and 7 provide two different perspectives on biofuels. They review national and local cases. Chapter 8 presents a case on residential solar electric systems. The chapter provides a framework on evaluating the adoption phenomenon. Finally, Chap. 9 provides a case on portfolio optimization in the electricity market and thus provides us with a fi nancial perspective.Chapters 10 and 11 review energy effi ciency technologies and programs as well as approaches to evaluate them. These two chapters provide a solid introduction to the energy effi ciency concept through a local case and a comprehensive review of the literature. Chapters 12 through 15 present different cases in the energy effi ciency area. Chapters 12 and 13 present two different approaches to evaluate clothes dryers which are major consumers of power in the residential market. One of the approaches relies on expert judgment quantifi cation while the other one on intelligence through patent analysis and modeling based on such intelligence. Chapter 14 presents a case on furnace fan motors, while Chap. 15 on insulation material for home construction.
