Hydrogen & fuel cells : advances in transportation and power by Michael F Hordeski( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The hydrogen car has been proposed as the solution to our oil problems, but how would it work, and what potential problems are associated with it? This book addresses these questions, and provides specifics about current developments toward a hydrogen-based energy infrastructure." "What would a hydrogen infrastructure look like? Fueling stations could be small electrolysis plants that produce hydrogen from water. Photovoltaic cells could also be used at fueling stations to power for electrolysis. Hydrogen fueling stations have already opened in California, Washington, DC and Europe. The technology is being pushed by economics as oil prices continue to rise with dwindling supplies. This book offers the reader an informed look at the current state of fuel cell power and transportation technology, and where it's headed."--Jacket

Megatrends for energy efficiency and renewable energy by Michael F Hordeski( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of energy is being shaped by environmental issues including the fear of global warming. This has resulted in the development of renewable energy sources and more efficient building technology. Examining trends in energy efficiency, this book explores energy technologies and fuels, their prospects in a world with greenhouse gas restrictions. It looks at the technical and economic tradeoffs of traditional renewables such as wind and solar, as well as large scale PV and concentrated thermal power. It also considers biomass technologies. For each of these technologies, it discusses planning, siting, installation, operation and maintenance, health and safety, power conditioning, and efficiency innovations. -- Book Description
