Energy and Climate Change: Our New Future is a novel handbook that provides a thorough, cross-disciplinary understanding of future energy, energy transition, and climate change.

The book begins by presenting the key concepts of climate change, enabling the reader to better understand the root causes and future implications of global warming, before assessing the current role and future outlook for fossil fuel-based energy sources. This is followed by in-depth coverage of the very latest types of cleaner energy options available, giving the reader ways to solve the problems of global warming and climate change. These include both tried and tested renewable energy systems and novel ideas that are still to be fully tested or utilized. The book explores how various renewable energy options will be affected by climate change, such as strong winds impacting on wind turbines, flooding of renewable energy infrastructure, droughts affecting hydroelectric schemes, and rising temperatures affecting solar panels, and discusses the life cycle of each type in order to support decision making. Alongside renewable energy and nuclear energy, areas such as carbon capture and energy storage methods are considered for their important role in furthering energy transition and mitigating climate change.

This is an invaluable resource for all those with an interest in energy transition, renewable energy, climate change, and sustainability, including researchers, graduate students, scientists, engineers, practitioners, consultants, industry leaders, urban planners, and government personnel.
