This book makes intelligible the wide range of electricity generating technologies available today, as well as some closely allied technologies such as energy storage.

The book opens by setting the many power generation technologies in the context of global energy consumption, the development of the electricity generation industry and the economics involved in this sector. A series of chapters are each devoted to assessing the environmental and economic impact of a single technology, including conventional technologies, nuclear and renewable (such as solar, wind and hydropower). The technologies are presented in an easily digestible form.

Different power generation technologies have different greenhouse gas emissions and the link between greenhouse gases and global warming is a highly topical environmental and political issue. With developed nations worldwide looking to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide, it is becoming increasingly important to explore the effectiveness of a mix of energy generation technologies.

Power Generation Technologies gives a clear, unbiased review and comparison of the different types of power generation technologies available. In the light of the Kyoto protocol and OSPAR updates, Power Generation Technologies will provide an invaluable reference text for power generation planners, facility managers, consultants, policy makers and economists, as well as students and lecturers of related Engineering courses.

· Provides a unique comparison of a wide range of power generation technologies - conventional, nuclear and renewable
· Describes the workings and environmental impact of each technology
· Evaluates the economic viability of each different power generation system

Book Description:

A guide for engineers and service planners to all major power generation methods – traditional and renewable – covering technologies, economic factors and environmental impact

From the Back Cover:

· Provides a unique comparison of a wide range of power generation technologies – conventional, nuclear and renewable
· Describes the workings and environmental impact of each technology
· Evaluates the economic viability of each different power generation system

Paul Breeze provides a concise and readable description of the spectrum of different power generation technologies available today, from traditional fossil fuels and the better established renewables such as wind and solar power, to emerging renewables such as biomass, wave and tidal stream energy. Technology solutions such as combined heat and power, and distributed generation are also explored.

However, Power Generation Technologies is more than just an account of the technologies – for each method the author explores the economic and environmental costs and risk factors.

Those involved in planning and delivering energy – including engineers, managers and policy makers – will find in this book a guide through the minefield of maintaining a reliable power supply, meeting targets on greenhouse gas emissions, and addressing economic and social objectives.
