Word of mouth is an excellent way to find out about something new, so we wanted to share an endorsement for Nader Anani's November title, Renewable Energy Technologies and Resources, below:
This exciting book presents excellent coverage of renewable energy technologies and resources that are here to stay and will be used by generations of engineers to come.
Focusing on photovoltaics, hydro, tidal, wind, and biomass systems, explanations of the scientific principles and physical systems used for the harvesting and harnessing of renewable resources are comprehensively detailed using worked examples.
Readers will learn how to effectively calculate the cost and payback time for a given renewable energy plant by understanding the issues affecting the cost of generating electricity from a renewable energy system.
Never has an author put together so eloquently a text that, even with its simple mathematical approach, conveys engineering terminology and methodology of this complex engineering.
Whether you are an engineer wishing to further your knowledge in renewable engineering or a university student, you will find this text a must and an enjoyable read. Articulating engineering mathematics from first principles to the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings and practical design specifications fully worked, you will no doubt be ready to tackle 21st-century energetic problems that are bringing all facets of the political and social spectrum to the attention of the world.
Nader has an inherent passion for education and the structure of this text reflects this. A step- by-step bite-sized learning approach that anyone who studies complex matters wishes to follow is inherent to this book. By no means bedtime reading, but certainly a wake-up call to a fresh way of managing the technology and the resources our planet has to offer.
There is no doubt that this text is a must for a wide range of university students and professional engineers who are looking to save our planet and who share a passion for all things renewable.
