    'Strategically plan your commercial trajectory and optimize profitability in the increasingly internationalized solar tower  market' Solar tower technology currently accounts for 4% of the global installed CSP share, totalling at 98 MW across 7 markets. Crucially, however, the global project pipeline indicates that solar tower technology is ...

  • Ocean Energy

    Engineers’ dreams and fossil energy replacement schemes can come true. Man has been tapping the energy of the sea to provide power for his industries for centuries. Tidal energy combined with that of waves and marine winds rank among those most successfully put the work. Large scale plants are capital intensive but smaller ones, particularly built ...

  • Biohydrogen

    The modern world is facing three critical problems: high fuel prices, climate change, and air pollution. Biohydrogen: For Future Engine Fuel Demands covers the production, purification, storage, pipeline transport, usage, and safety of biohydrogen. Hydrogen promises to be the most significant fuel source of the future, due to its global ...

  • Geothermal Energy: Renewable Energy and the Environment

    Focusing on geothermal energy systems, this unique work in the recently developed CRC series, Energy and the Environment looks at the background, theory, power generation, applications, strengths and weaknesses, and practical techniques for implementing geothermal energy projects. Like the rest of the series, it stresses the links between ...

  • Energy Efficiency in Wastewater Treatment in North America: A Compendium of Best Practices and Case Studies of Novel Approaches

    After manpower, energy is the highest operating cost item for most the wastewater utilities. Over the last decade, the implementation of new technologies to meet new effluent limits and water quality standards has considerably increased energy consumption by the sector. The price of energy has also substantially increased in the same period. In ...

  • Transforming the Market : Energy Efficiency in Buildings

    New modeling by the WBCSD shows how energy use in buildings can be cut by 60 percent by 2050 - essential to meeting global climate change targets - but this will require immediate action to transform the building sector. This is the central message of the report from the WBCSD's four-year, $15 million Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB) research ...

  • Energy Efficiency in Buildings Executive Brief #2 - Our vision: A world where buildings consume zero net energy

    Buildings are responsible for about 40% of energy use in most countries. The EEB project will determine which combination of recommendations will most effectively result in substantial energy and emission reductions, putting us on a committed path towards zero net energy ...

  • Solar Energy: Renewable Energy and the Environment

    Drawing on the authors’ extensive research and project implementation around the globe, Solar Energy: Renewable Energy and the Environment covers solar energy resources, thermal and photovoltaic systems, and the economics involved in using solar energy. It provides background theory on solar energy as well as useful technical information for ...

  • Energy Efficiency in Buildings: Business Realities and Opportunities - Facts and Trends

    This Study highlights opportunities to promote green building know-how and technologies as the WBCSD pushes for zero net energy construction worldwide through its Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB) project. Zero net energy buildings will reduce demand by design, be highly efficient and generate at least as much energy as they ...
