How is the future world energy demand to be met? The rates of use of the fossil fuels - coal, oil and natural gas - are increasing all over the world. The remaining stocks are finite and are not renewable. This important book considers the various options of renewable energy, including water energy, wind energy and biomass, solar thermal and solar photovoltaic energy. And should the nuclear option remain open? The book examines the environmental implications and economic viability of all fossil and renewable sources, introduces more distant future options of geothermal energy and nuclear fusion, and discusses a near-future energy strategy.This book is also available as a set with Energy Studies - Problems and Solutions.Energy Studies - Problems and Solutions, by the same authors as Energy Studies, is a natural complement to Energy Studies. This book contains solutions to 370 existing and new problems, many with illustrations, and updated Tables of Data on fuel supply.
