"This is the most comprehensive and complete treatment I've seen of the issue of energy and our society. The international coverage adds a great deal to the discussion which is generally western-focused. The coverage of technologies is extremely balanced, providing a valid reference frame on which engineers, individuals and policy makers can base solid decisions."
-John Gardner, Professor, Boise State University
"A comprehensive handbook which covers the most cut edge improvement technologies of energy efficiency for energy generation and transportation facilities using either conventional petroleum-based energy or renewable energy. ... The handbook could be beneficial to both experienced researchers / engineers as a guide or reference book and novices / university students as a textbook in energy related fields."
-Prof. Cherng-Yuan Lin, National Taiwan Ocean University
"Overall, the book covers a wide range of topics on energy efficiency and renewable energy. This will serve as a good Reference for practicing engineers, policy makers, and the students working in the area of Energy."
-Prof. Kaushik Rajashekara, University of Texas at Dallas
"The masterful treatment of modern energy-producing technologies and environmental controls makes this book interesting to read. ã It is a worthy aid to the general public, a good resource for engineering students, and a vital reference for engineers, scientists, and industry leaders." ã --- R. M. Ferguson, Eastern Connecticut State University
