Energy-Smart Buildings. Design, construction and monitoring of buildings for improved energy efficiencyThis volume intends to provide a brief research source for building technology and regulations in terms of energy efficiency, discussing fundamental aspects as well as cutting-edge trends for new buildings and retrofitting the current building stock. Sources of renewable and sustainable energy production and storage are additionally reviewed, with case studies of such systems on buildings in a cold climate. This volume also provides industry professionals, researchers and students with the most updated review on modern building ideas, and renewable energy technologies that can be coupled with them.
Commercialising Fusion Energy. How small businesses are transforming big scienceThroughout the past five decades, research and development in the world of nuclear fusion has been led by large publicly funded national laboratories. Currently, fusion energy technology development is being embraced by small, fast-moving start-up companies.
Energy from Nuclear FusionThis reference book provides a review of the physics of fusion energy, a discussion of the progress in the development of a commercial fusion reactor and an assessment of the viability of nuclear fusion as a component of our future energy mix. The level of the book is both accessible and informative, being aimed at upper-level undergraduate science and engineering students, as well as graduate students and professionals who are not specialists in the field but who want a scientifically based overview of nuclear fusion power. The book will fill the gap between lower-level books, which provide primarily descriptive treatments of nuclear fusion, and those intended for specialists.
