This book provides a detailed treatment of energy storage, low emission power generation technologies, and energy management.
It begins with an examination of the generation of nuclear energy and then moves on to an analysis of combined heat and power generation, by which it is possible to produce heat and electricity together as a complement to heat generation in order to improve the efficiency of heat plants.
The use of hydrogen as an energy vector similar to electricity is addressed next, and provides readers with a comprehensive view of the available means of creating, storing and transporting the gas, which is generally (but incorrectly) considered to be very dangerous.
Finally, the very important subjects of energy management, control of energy demand, and energy-saving measures are considered. Positive energy houses, low consumption public and domestic lighting systems, and moderation of power consumption by control of the load from the grid are all described, as options for creating a sustainable energy future.
