This two-volume set discusses the future of energy production and management in a changing world. The volumes contain the proceedings of the first international conference on Energy Production and Management in the 21st Century: The Quest for Sustainable Energy.
Developed societies require an ever increasing amount of energy resources, which creates complex technological challenges. The focus of the conference is to compare conventional energy sources, particularly hydrocarbons, with a number of other ways of producing energy, emphasizing new technological developments. The challenge in many cases is the conversion of new sources of energy into useful forms, while finding efficient ways of storing and distributing energy. Energy policies and management are of primary importance to achieving sustainability, and need to be consistent with recent advances made in energy production and distribution. The books also discuss the energy use of industrial processes, including the embedded energy contents of materials, particularly those in the built environment. Energy production, distribution and usage, result in environmental risks which need to be better understood. They are part of the energy economics and relate to human environmental health as well as ecosystems behavior. Topics covered include: Energy production; Energy management; Energy policies; Energy and economic growth; Energy efficiency; Hydro-power; Wind energy; Solar energy; Nuclear energy; Biomass and bio-fuels; Energy storage; Hydrocarbons; Gas production; Processing of oil and gas; Energy conversion; Energy savings; Energy in the built environment; Energy networks; Pipelines; Energy balance; Energy economics; Heat, pumping systems; Environmental risk; Safety management; Emissions; C-O2 separation and storage; Embedded energy; Energy and transport; Energy use in industry; Energy transmission and distribution; Energy industry efficiency; Energy security; Training in energy and sustainability.
