“alternative energy” rather than “renewable energy”, they use the energy we have more efficiently than older technologies.

In doing this, they help us make our existing energy supplies last longer and give us more time before we run out of stored fossil and atomic fuels. The use of renewable and alternative energy sources can save us File Size: KB. This book addresses biomass energy technologies and the development of virgin and waste biomass as renewable, indigenous, energy resources for the production of heat, steam, and electric power, as well as solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels that are suitable as substitutes for fossil fuels and their refined products.

In the years between the first and this second edition, renewable energy has come of age; it makes good sense, good government and good business.

This book considers the unchanging principles of renewable energy technologies alongside modern application and case studies. In this second edition, the presentation of the fundamentals has been improved throughout, and chapters on economics and. "Renewable Energy, 4e by Bent Sorensen has been structured around three parts in order to assist readers in focusing on the issues that impact them the most for a given project or question.

PART I covers the basic scientific principles behind all major renewable energy. NON-RENEWABLE ENERGY RESOURCES Fossil fuels are energy sources which form over billions of years from the remains of living organisms.

Remains of living organisms become fossil fuels when they are compacted in the Earth's crust over billions of years, which is the reason why fossil fuels are so energy dense. There is a finiteFile Size: 1MB. Indeed, it's one thing to supplement energy production with renewable sources, quite another to replace fossil fuels entirely.

Infossil fuels accounted for nearly 72 percent of the United States' electric power production, while hydroelectric power supplied only percent and other renewables supplied a mere percent [source. book might differ from those reported by any single data source cited in the data book.

For example, U.S. renewable energy generating capacity data for hydropower, geothermal, biomass energy, and utility-scale solar resources is generally sourced from Energy Information Administration (EIA) mandatory reporting, however capacity data for other.Renewable resources—the sun, wind, water, and biomass—were the first to be tapped to provide heat, light, and usable throughout the 20th century and today, the dramatic increase in energy use for industrial, residential, transportation, and other purposes has been fueled largely by the energy stored in fossil fuels and, more recently, supplied by nuclear power.Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.

Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services.
