Addressing the sustainable energy crisis in an objective manner, this enlightening book analyzes the relevant numbers and organizes a plan for change on both a personal level and an international scaleâfor Europe, the United States, and the world. In case study format, this informative reference answers questions surrounding
In the early 21st century, research and development on sustainable energy harvesting
(EH) technologies have started. Since then, many EH technologies have evolved,
advanced and even been successfully developed into hardware prototypes for proof
of concept like Helimote, AmbiMax, et al. Researchers from all around the world are
devoting their precious time and efforts into finding a realistic and novel energy
harvesting solutions for sustaining the operational lifetime of low‐power electronic
devices like mobile gadgets, smart wireless sensor networks, etc....
A sustainable energy future with a stable global climate is central to the present worldwide debate on climate change due to the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is the main greenhouse gas (GHG) from human activities.
ETP2010 will build on the success of earlier editions, by providing decision makers with more detailed practical information and tools that can help kick-start the transition to a more secure, sustainable and affordable energy future.
The ConnectM Energy Management Solution is designed to help you intelligently monitor, and optimise the energy consumed by the various energy assets like lighting, HVAC, and DG sets. ConnectM also leverages the solution framework for enhancing the in-building fire and security operations.Lighting & HVAC
ConnectM focuses on Energy technologies (Clean Tech) with its Energy Management Solution. Organizations spend typically about 20% of their energy on lighting, 60% on HVAC, 10% on their Datacenters and 20% on essential equipments & machineries....
This third edition of the textbook ‘Environmental Physics’ has been thoroughly revised to give more focus on sustainable energy and climate change. As fossil fuels and nuclear power will be with us for many years to come, the physical and environmental aspects of these ways of energy conversion are given ample attention as well.
We are fortunate to live in incredibly exciting and incredibly challenging time. Energy demands due to economic growth and increasing population must be satisfied in a sustainable manner assuring inherent safety, efficiency and no or minimized environmental impact. These considerations are among the reasons that lead to serious interest in deploying nuclear power as a sustainable energy source.
Global warming resulting from the use of fossil fuels is threatening the environment
and energy efficiency is one of the most important ways to reduce this threat. Industry,
transport and buildings are all high energy-using sectors in the world and even in the most
technologically optimistic perspectives energy use is projected to increase in the next 50 years.
How and when energy is used determines society’s ability to create long-term sustainable
Increase in electricity demand and environmental issues resulted in fast development
of energy production from renewable resources (RES). In the long term, application of
RES can guarantee the ecologically sustainable energy supply. This book indicates
recent trends and applications of renewable energy resources that organized in 11

Hydrogen and fuel cells are seen by many as key solutions
for the 21st century, enabling clean efficient production of
power and heat from a range of primary energy sources. The High Level Group for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technologies was initiated in October 2002 by the Vice President of the European Commission, Loyola de Palacio, Commissioner for Energy and Transport, and Mr Philippe Busquin, Commissioner for Research.
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.
Energy is important for the existence and development of humankind and is a key issue
in international politics, the economy, military preparedness, and diplomacy. To reduce
the impact of conventional energy sources on the environment, much attention should be
paid to the development of new energy and renewable energy resources. Solar energy,
which is environment friendly, is renewable and can serve as a sustainable energy source.
Hence, it will certainly become an important part of the future energy structure with the
increasingly drying up of the terrestrial fossil fuel.

Energy and climate change are issues of critical importance for shaping a sustainable future, both in South Africa and globally. For South Africa, finding a policy approach which balances the increasing demand for energy with the need for sustainability, equity and climate change mitigation is a particular challenge. This book provides an innovative and strategic approach to climate policy, with local development objectives as its starting point.
Alix Clark has an MA in Economics from UCT and will shortly obtain an MA from the School of Community and Regional Studies at the University of British Columbia. Prior to working independently as an energy researcher and consultant, Ms Clark was based at the Energy and Development Research Centre at UCT where she headed its Markets and Governance team.
