Renewable energy-2000 by G. T Wrixon( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The limited availability of fossil energy carriers and the environmental impacts of energy consumption demand mid- and long-term strategies both for the rational use of energy and for increased regenerative energy utilization. Concepts of regenerative energy conversion have been proposed and implemented during recent decades all over the world and their remarkable potential has been demonstrated. However, large scale implementation in the context of the requirements mentioned above has not yet taken place. The EUREC (European Renewable Energy Centres) Agency - an association of 25 European research centres from 11 EC countries, provides a framework of leading experts in the field of regenerative energies, focusing on assessment studies, joint projects in research and development and on proposing future strategies in a European context. Under the leadership of Professor Wrixon, with the assistance and contributions of experts from the EUREC Agency, the document Renewable Energies - 2000 has been elaborated. This document critically evaluates the potential of regenerative energies, focusing on the most relevant sources and methodologies, namely: wind energy, solar heating, cooling and daylighting, photovoltaics and biomass. It also proposes strategies for implementing components and systems to achieve economic operation in different regions of the European Community

European solar radiation atlas : solar radiation on horizontal and inclined surfaces by Commission of the European Communities( )

16 editions published in 1996 in 3 languages and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This atlas is a revised and updated version of the European Solar Radiation Atlas published in 1984. The revised contains tables and maps displaying monthly means of global, diffuse and beam solar radiation as well as sunhours for a large number of represenative sites in Europe. Tables show radiation on both horizontal and inclined surfaces. The revisions reflect the political developments in the European Union and within neighbouring countries. The presentation of the tables has been improved and additional information is included. An enlarged text section provides an introduction to the systematics of solar radiation measurement and calculation. The solar data presented in this book is a useful source of information for the estimation of the energy harvest potential for solar systems. The data contained in the tables is provided on two disks in easily readable ASCII format

Wind power for the world : the rise of modern wind energy( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most wind energy history writing relates to the industrialization that emerged in the early 1980s. Wind Power for the World: The Rise of Modern Wind Energy throws light on how the modern three-bladed wind turbine came into being and who, how and what in the period that followed caused the success of the technology. This book takes readers 40 years back to show the roots of this exciting development, which is a long cavalcade of developers, inventors and manufacturers who gave their bigger or smaller contributions to what began in 1975 and in the course of five to eight years became a real modern industry. The book focuses on Denmark, Germany and China, which were among the few countries that led the proliferation of the contemporary wind power. Since the cradle of the modern wind turbine stands in Denmark, the book brings forth authentic stories told by the Danish authors who themselves often were part of the breakthrough

Solar power for the world : what you wanted to know about photovoltaics by W Palz( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in full color, this book describes the industrial revolution associated with the implementation of electric power generation by photovoltaics (PV), the conversion of the Sun's radiation. It also describes the dramatic events in the industry that happened between 2009 and 2013: hundreds of PV companies in difficulty and the trade war between the EU and China mobilising state leaders on both sides to avoid a serious conflict. The contributing authors are protagonists all over the world who brought PV from its industrial birth in 1954 all the way up to the stormy developments during the first decade of the new century".--Provided by publisher
