About This Book

This book provides a quantitative yet accessible overview of renewable energy engineering practice and the technologies that will transform our energy supply system over the coming years. Covering wind, hydro, solar thermal, photovoltaic, ocean and bioenergy, the text is suitable for engineering undergraduates as well as graduate students from other numerate degrees. The technologies involved, background theory and how projects are developed, constructed, and operated are described. Worked examples of the simple techniques used to calculate the output of renewable energy schemes engage students by showing how theory relates to real applications. Tutorial chapters provide background material, supporting students from a range of disciplines and ensuring they receive the broad understanding essential for a successful career in the field. Over 150 end-of-chapter problems are included with answers to the problems available in the book and full solutions at www.cambridge.org/jenkins, password-protected for instructors.

Climate 
change 
brought 
about 
by 
the

of 
CO
2
from 
burning 
fossil 
fuels 
is 
a 
major 
driver 
of 
energy 
policy 
in 
many 
countries. 
Thus 
alternatives 
to 
burning 
fossil 
fuel, 
particularly 
coal, 
are 
needed 
urgently. 
The 
options 
to 
generate 
electricity 
without 
emitting

are 
limited 
to:
‚Äʬ†
renewable 
energy
‚Äʬ†
nuclear 
energy
‚Äʬ†
fossil 
fuel 
generators 
equipped 
with 
carbon 
capture 
and

The
