Wiley-VCH Verlag & Co. KGaA, Weinheim, Germany, 2013. – 463 p. – ISBN: 3527334165An in–depth understanding of energy technology, sources, conversion, storage, transport and conservation is crucial for developing a sustainable and economically viable energy infrastructure. This need, for example, is addressed in university courses with a special focus on the energy mix of renewable and depletable energy resources. Energy makes our lives comfortable, and the existence of amenities such as heaters, cars, warm water, household appliances and electrical light is characteristic for a developed economy. Supplying the industrial or individual energy consumer with energy 24 hours a day is a non–trivial challenge, especially in times where the energy is coming from very diverse resources such as oil, gas, nuclear fuels, wind, sun, or waves. This book gives physics, chemistry, engineering, and materials science students insights in the basics of energy and energy technology. It was developed along a successful course for advanced bachelor or graduate students and is written in a didactic style. The problems and solutions at the end of each chapter are ideal for exams and make self–study easy. Topics covered include energy from fossil and nuclear fuels, renewable sources, energy transport, storage, and conservation. Contents Introduction Energy Conservation with Thermal Insulation Thermodynamic Energy Efficiency Fossil Fuel-Fired Energy Converters Nuclear Fission Energy and Power Plants Hydropower Wind Power Photovoltaics (PV) Solar Space and Hot Water Heating Electricity and Fuels from Solar Heat Biomass Energy Geothermal Energy Energy Storage Energy Transport Fuel Cells Nuclear Fusion Energy
