Product Overview

"Energy Storage: A New Approach" presents practical solutions to the problem of energy storage on a massive scale. This revolutionary book describes technologies that include basic chemical concepts that engineers have been practicing for years, but presents new material that could transform the energy industry. Regardless where power is generated from--oil, natural gas, coal, solar, wind, or any of the other emerging sources-- energy storage is something that the industry MUST learn and practice. With the world energy demand increasing, mostly due to industrial growth in China and India, and with the West becoming increasingly more interested in fuel efficiency and "green" endeavors, energy storage is potentially a key technology in our energy future.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Energy Storage: A New Approach presents practical solutions to the problem of energy storage on a massive scale. This problem is especially difficult for renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar power, which currently can only be utilized when the wind blows or while the sun shines.||If energy storage on a large scale were possible, this would solve many of our society's problems. For example, power grids would not go down during peak usage, and power plants that run on natural gas would no longer burn natural gas during the off-hours as they do now. These are just two problems society faces today that could be solved with energy storage technology.||This revolutionary book describes technologies that include basic chemical concepts that engineers have been practicing for years and presents new material that could transform the energy industry. Regardless of where power is generated from---oil, natural gas, coal, solar, wind, or any of the other emerging sources---energy storage is something that the industry must learn and practice. With the world energy demand increasing, mostly due to industrial growth in many fast-developing countries, and the West becoming increasingly more interested in fuel efficiency and "green" endeavours, energy storage is potentially a key technology in our energy future.
