    • Covers all renewable energy sources, and all technologies from an engineering point of view
    • Provides updated and detailed description of sustainable technologies for an informed dialogue between engineers and allied professionals dedicated to different energy specialities (including but not limited to energy storage, chemistry, bioengineering, built environment, decentralized systems, appropriate technologies)
    • Supplies key mathematical elements and explanations for future coupling of technologies and hybrid applications
    • Includes updated market trends and energy security information, essential for dialogue and decisions involving engineers and political, economic and social agents
    • Defines energy sustainability and provides pivotal estimates of energy limits of the earth system
    • Covers comprehensively solar-based technologies, and key geoscience elements impinging on the future sustainability of the global energy system.
    • Numerous original and high quality illustrations and a practical format make for a reference book for professional use.


This book examines the key aspects that will define future sustainable energy systems: energy supply, energy storage, security and limited environmental impacts. It clearly explains the need for an integrated engineering approach to sustainable energies, based on mathematical, biogeophysical, and engineering arguments. Resilient and efficient alternatives are compared to non-sustainable options. This book results from the collaboration of 50 international contributors.
