In this new edition of Renewable Energy Systems, globally recognized renewable energy researcher and professor, Henrik Lund, sets forth a straightforward, comprehensive methodology for comparing different energy systems’ abilities to integrate fluctuating and intermittent renewable energy sources. The book does this by presenting an energy system analysis methodology.
The book provides the results of more than fifteen comprehensive energy system analysis studies, examines the large-scale integration of renewable energy into the present system, and presents concrete design examples derived from a dozen renewable energy systems around the globe. Renewable Energy Systems, Second Edition also undertakes the socio-political realities governing the implementation of renewable energy systems by introducing a theoretical framework approach aimed at understanding how major technological changes, such as renewable energy, can be implemented at both the national and international levels.
Provides an introduction to the technical design of renewable energy systems
Demonstrates how to analyze the feasibility and efficiency of large-scale systems to help implementers avoid costly trial and error
Addresses the socio-political challenge of implementing the shift to renewables
Features a dozen extensive case studies from around the globe that provide real-world templates for new installations
Research scientists, engineers, project managers, policy makers, consultants and graduate students involved in Renewable Energy development and implementation
