    Wholeness: on Education ,Buckminster and TaoRenewable Energy, Second Edition

    — by Bent Sorensen

    The author has made the Second Edition more accessible to researchers and students approaching the field for the first time. Each chapter has a general introductory section, but is also followed by advanced topics. This gives university lecturers the flexibility to include advanced topics while at the same time allowing researchers to use the book as a reference work.

    In the two decades since Renewable Energy was first published,there has been a phenomenal rise in interest and applications in this area.This second edition of Renewable energy is undoubtedly one of the most complete accounts of the subject,from source to extraction and use.The book is academically rigorous,but accessible.
    The author first describesthe effect of the sun on the atmosphereand the creation of the wind and aves,including the effect of global warming then,for each type of renewable energy,from direct solar radition to biomass,there follows a technical description of the devices that can be used to transform the energy into useful forms.
    The final part of the book looks at social and economic aspects of renewable energy – the costs of our current fuel bills versus new energy sources,and the difference it could make to developing as well as developed countries.The concept of whole new energy systems based around wind,solar and other energies is put into a real-life context.

    Key features of the book include:
    • Reference paths:the reader may follow the general proces from source through distribution,or concentrate on a specific type of energy(e.g. wind power

    • Planning tools:quantitative descriptions of energy flows,efficiencies and impacts.

    • GIS based ilustrations:easy overview of distribution on global maps.

    • Layering:the material is divided into undergraduate text and advanced topics.

    Renewable Energy is essential reading for undergraduates and graduates in Earth Sciences,Environmental Sciences and Engineering.Researchers will find it a useful reference tool.The book will also prove invaluable to consultants and planners working in both the public and private sectords of government and international agencies.
    Bent Sorensen is currently Professor of Physics atRoskide University (Denmark), and President of Novator Advanced Technology Consulting.The author has held academic posts at University of California at Berkeley and Yale University (USA), and at Kyoto University (Japan),University of Grenoble(France) and Sydney University ( Australia).He was awarded the Australian-European Award for Eminent European Scientist(1982).
