Contents Notes
chapter 1 Fundamental Concepts -- chapter 2 Energy Demand and Supply -- chapter 3 Environmental Effects of Energy Production and Utilization -- chapter 4 Fossil Fuels -- chapter 5 Nuclear Energy -- chapter 6 Renewable Energy -- chapter 7 Energy Storage -- chapter 8 Energy Conservation and Higher Efficiency -- chapter 9 Energy Economics and Decision-Making Methods. Energy and the Environment explains in simple terms what the energy demand is at the present, what the environmental effects of energy use are, and what can be accomplished to alleviate the environmental effects of energy use and ensure adequate energy supply. Though technical in approach, the text uses simple explanations of engineering processes and systems and algebra-based math to be comprehensible to students in a range of disciplines. Schematic diagrams, quantitative examples, and numerous problems will help students make quantitative calculations. This will assist them in comprehending the complexity of the energy-environment balance, and to analyze and evaluate proposed solutions.
