Alternative Energy

This three-volume set introduces researchers to concerns surrounding either present power assets and replacement power thoughts. whereas there's major dialogue of the non-renewable assets now used to fulfill nearly all of the world's power wishes (oil, coal and usual gas), the first concentration of the set is on more recent recommendations to satisfy the ever-growing call for.

Living Water: Viktor Schauberger and the Secrets of Natural Energy

This is often the tale of a pioneering Austrian naturalist and iconoclast who pointed tips on how to a very new figuring out of the huge strength of ordinary power. via learning fish in streams and through heavily looking at the common water cycle, Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) used to be in a position to resolve easy difficulties of power transformation.

Research Approaches to Sustainable Biomass Systems

Researchers, scholars and engineers operating with biofuels and biomass are more and more anticipated to realize a brand new holistic platforms point of view that starts with clever crop breeding and cultivation recommendations and informs the complete conversion to strength procedure. This quantity presents diversified examples of effectively applied sustainable biomass examine in Asia, highlighting the demanding situations confronted by way of designers of recent biomass construction amenities and how one can increase ways to beat them.

8) [17]. There are many countries with thousands of BTES systems, ranging from one borehole to up to a few hundred boreholes, usually for heating and cooling of buildings (residential housing and hotels and office buildings). Another UTES system is energy piles, which use the building foundations as ground heat exchangers [18]. Countries such as Japan see this method as having a lot of potential because it allows cost reduction in the construction of the ground heat exchangers. Energy piles are cast-in-place concrete piles, precasting concrete piles, and steel foundation piles.
