Fuelling the Future
Advances in Science and Technologies for Energy Generation, Transmission and Storage
Fuelling the Future offers the latest research results in materials, processes and systems involved in energy generation, transmission-distribution and storage as they were presented by active researchers in the field at the Energy and Materials Research Conference (Spain, June 2012). In our current situation, where the world's energy system is likely to radically change in the next several decades, research into these technologies has become a critical aspect in the development of cleaner and more efficient energy.
Readers will find a major collection of knowledge, approaches, methods and discussions on the latest advances and challenges in materials for energy generation. The topics covered in this single volume include energy from biomass- biofuels, solar energy, fuel cells, hydrogen, wind power, wave, tidal and hydropower, geothermal energy, non-renewable energy sources, nuclear and fossil fuels, energy transmission-distribution and storage, lighting and energy-efficient buildings and energy saving and sustainability.
