  • Description
  • Contents

Faced with the climate change phenomena, humanity has had to now contend with numerous changes, including our attitude environment protection, and also with depletion of classical energy resources. These have had consequences in the power production sector, which was already struggling with negative public opinion on nuclear energy, but a favorable perception of renewable energy resources. The objective of this edited volume is to review all these changes and to present solutions for future power generation.

  • Offers a fast introduction to recent results in power engineering
  • Saves the time needed to search for information spread in tens of journals
  • Covers all branches of power engineering, from thermal to electrical, from hydro to nuclear
