Re-Energizing America: A Common-Sense Approach to Achieving U.S. Energy Independence in Our Generation
The time has come for common sense answers to the energy crisis in America. A provocative new book, Re-Energizing America: A Common-Sense Approach to Achieving U.S. Energy Independence in Our Generation, provides those answers. Author Jay Marhoefer, a strategist, energy consultant, IT executive and lawyer, describes a step-by-step approach for creating sustainable energy independence in the United States. Marhoefer's approach, called Intelligent GenerationT, uses conventional, renewable, and information technologies to provide homeowners, communities, and small businesses a way to acquire energy when it is least expensive. Later, when energy is at its highest price, consumers can use what they have stored to power their appliances, heat their homes, and even fuel their automobiles. The result of Intelligent Generation'sT virtual network of individual power generators is cost-efficient, sustainable energy and millions of new American jobs. Re-Energizing America includes significant new insights about America's energy future. For example, it explains how combining wind and solar energy can be cost-effective for 60 percent of the U.S. population. It reveals that Mexico's energy situation poses as great a threat to the U.S. in 15 years as our reliance on the Persian Gulf if we fail to take appropriate action. It exposes the true, full measure of future U.S. reliance on OPEC that is hidden in government statistics. Re-Energizing America provides straightforward, common sense, and affordable answers to our twin problems of OPEC dependence and global warming. It is truly a book for our time.

This comprehensive description and discussion of photovoltaics (PV) is presented at a level that makes it accessible to the interested academic. Starting with an historical overview, the text outlines the relevance of photovoltaics today and in the future. Then follows an introduction to the physical background of solar cells and the most important materials and technologies, with particular emphasis placed on future developments and prospects. The book goes beyond technology by also describing the path from the cell to the module to the system, proceeding to important applications such as grid-connected and stand-alone systems. The composition and development of the markets and the role of PV in future energy systems are also considered. Finally, the discussion turns to the future structure of energy supplies, expected to comprise more distributed generation, and addresses synergies and competition from other carbon-free energy sources.
Even as concern over climate change and energy security fuel a boom in solar technology, many still think of solar as a twentieth-century wonder. Few realize that the first photovoltaic array appeared on a New York City rooftop in 1884, or that brilliant engineers in France were using solar power in the 1860s to run steam engines, or that in 1901 an ostrich farmer in Southern California used a single solar engine to irrigate three hundred acres of citrus trees. Fewer still know that Leonardo da Vinci planned to make his fortune by building half-mile-long mirrors to heat water, or that the Bronze Age Chinese used hand-sized solar-concentrating mirrors to light fires the way we use matches and lighters today.With thirteen new chapters, Let It Shine is a fully revised and expanded edition of A Golden Thread, Perlin’s classic history of solar technology, detailing the past forty years of technological developments driving today’s solar renaissance. This unique and compelling compendium of humankind’s solar ideas tells the fascinating story of how our predecessors throughout time, again and again, have applied the sun to better their lives and how we can too.
This is the definitive book on solar electric systems for home use. Strong, who has designed more than one hundred photovoltaic (PV) systems, covers all aspects of PVs, from the history and economics of solar power to the nuts and bolts of systems and equipment.

This handbook provides climatological data which can be used as an input for the design of passive solar buildings and solar systems. Solar radiation data are presented for 37 typical European locations, e.g.: -- monthly average global and direct solar irradiation for several surfaces (types of receiver, orientation and inclination), and -- cumulative frequency and utilizability curves of solar irradiance. Ambient temperature data are presented for 186 European locations as monthly average ambient temperatures and monthly degree-days at several base temperatures. A set of methods and algorithms is also given for the reconstitution of these parameters at places where little information is available. Examples of design tools are introduced. The Handbook has been developed within the framework of a European concerted action entitled EUFRAT. Reference is made to a set of computer programmes and data bases which complement the Handbook in a useful way. The Handbook can easily be used by anyone (scientist, engineer, student or even non-specialist) who needs climatic data for the design of systems.

Energy and its relationship to matter started with big banga widely accepted theory in contemporary cosmology, which concerns the origin and evolution of the universe. According to this theory, an incredibly powerful explosion about 13.7 billion years ago started the present universe. Prior to this explosion, matter, energy, space, and time did not exist. All of these physical phenomena emerged from an unimaginably small, infinitely dense object that scientists call the initial singularity. Immediately after the big bang event, the intensely hot universe, which consisted of pure energy, began to expand and cool. As the universe cooled, matter began to form, initially as primeval quark-gluon plasma. Energy of Matter presents the most important intellectual achievements and technical developments that led people to use matter's energy content more efficiently. Supported by full-color illustrations and interesting sidebars, this new book describes the transformation of matter into energy and vice versa and how it continues in the present. Chapters include: Understanding Energy The Big BangSource of All Energy and Matter The Energy of Motion Discovering the Nature of Heat Thermodynamics Harvesting Energy Locked in Fossil Fuels Manipulating Matter's Electromagnetic Properties Discovering Equivalence of Energy and Matter Renewable Energy Resources HydrogenTomorrow's Universal Fuel.
The book starts with a discussion of global warming and climate change. The problem is well documented. Part One gives background for sustainable developments and gives studies of proven, substantiated and documented solutions. The time to act has begun. The a oeGreen Revolutiona has begun. Some authors call it The Third Industrial Revolution (Rifkin, 2005) since in the 21st century the industrially developed world has begun to move rapidly from fossil fuels (The Second Industrial Revolution) to renewable energy generation, storage technologies, and sustainable communities. Now is the time to understand and learn the tools that make sustainable communities of all kinds real. The book provides a vast, but not the total, amount of materials and data. The intent is to give students of sustainable development some well-established resources and tools. By 2008, the concept of a oeGreena had been so much in marketing and product services that it lost its meaning. The a oebrandinga of green meant a whole new industrial sector suddenly emerged globally. However, the proof that there is both a Green Revolution and actual solutions to global warming must be seen in those sustainable communities who have existed, grown or developed using tested tools for sustainability. One of the key tools is the concern for conservation of natural resources, energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy systems (solar, wind, geothermal and bio-mass among others) along with storage devices for power generation. Communities in Europe and Asia have led the way historically. The book presents actual cases of sustainable communities. The case of Frederikshavn in Denmark (Chapter # 6) clearly illustrates how small towns and villages can be sustainable. Far more intuitive and with common sense, Dos Lagos in California (Chapter #4) demonstrates how concern for the natural environment can create a mix-use community of homes, shops, offices and a golf course. Far more planned and strategic are the nine college campuses of the Los Angeles Community College District (Chapter #3) who recognized that public policy and that sector must lead the private sector by example as well as by proving the tools and economics of sustainable communities. And the private sector took note. A number of private companies from Safeway with its 20+ energy independent storage facilities to Toyota with Platinum LEED (Leadership in Environment and Energy Design) USA Headquarters in Torrance, California. Honda was not far behind with its "Green Hydrogen" Refueling station that electronizes solar energy into hydrogen for its hydrogen fuel cell cars. The Green Revolution could be seen with the hybrid cars that led Toyota to be the No #1 Auto maker. Part Two of the book reviews the tools needed to make sustainable communities anywhere in the world. The key one is the technology (s) from science and engineering (Chapter #8). All too often people do not know that there are environm
