InTech. 2010. 676 p.The world's reliance on existing sources of energy and their associated detrimental impacts on the environment- whether related to poor air or water quality or scarcity, impacts on sensitive ecosystems and forests and land use - have been well documented and articulated over the last three decades. What is needed by the world is a set of credible energy solutions that would lead us to a balance between economic growth and a sustainable environment. This book provides an open platform to establish and share knowledge developed by scholars, scientists and engineers from all over the world about various viable paths to a future of sustainable energy. It has collected a number of intellectually stimulating articles that address issues ranging from public policy formulation to technological innovations for enhancing the development of sustainable energy systems. It will appeal to stakeholders seeking guidance to pursue the paths to sustainable energy.ContentsPublic Policy and Planning for a Sustainable Energy FutureBackcasting a Future of Sustainable Energy: A Public Policy Perspective Sustainable Development vs Environmental Engineering: Energy Issues A Call to Action Energy Planning: A Sustainable Approach The Passive Greenhouses Decision Support for National Sustainable Energy Strategies in an Integrated Sustainability Assessment Framework Regional Approach for Policies and Measures Aiming to Sustainable Energy Development Identifying Regional Behavior Impacts of Electricity Generation in Electricity Market with SSNIP and Granger Test Supporting Psychosocial Processes towards a Sustainable Energy System: The Case of CO2 Geological Storage An Advanced Method of Congestion Management for Optimal Energy PricingUtilization of Solar and Wind ResourcesPV Solar Energy Conversion Using the Behavior Matching Technique Cost Calculation Algorithm for Photovoltaic Systems Wind Energy Introduction to Doubly-Fed Induction Generator for Wind Power Applications The Role of Aesthetics, Visual and Physical Integration in Building Mounted Wind Turbines – An Alternative Approach New Systems Thinking and Policy Means for Sustainable Energy Development Developing Wind Energy in TurkeyEnergy Storage and Efficient Use of EnergyUnderstanding the Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries Desing of Multiphase Boost Converter for Hybrid Fuel Cell/Battery Power Sources Non-Isolated High-Gain DC-DC Converter Using Charge Pump and Coupling Inductor Advanced Power Generation Technologies: Fuel CellsMaking Fossil Fuels SustainableCarbon Capture and Storage Technology for Sustainable Energy CaO-based CO2 Capture Technology and Its Application in Power Plants MEA-Based CO2 Capture Technology and Its Application in Power Plants High Renewable Energy Penetration Diesel Generator Systems Facts about Producer Gas EngineRole of Technological Innovations and Emerging TechnologiesElectric Power from Rice Paddy Fields Switching from Renewable to Renewable – A Case Study from Nordic Perspective Design and Technology for Efficient Lighting Ground Coupled Heat Pumps in Mixed Climate Areas: Design, Characterization and Optimization Development of a Boiler for Small Straw Bales Combustion
