Adviser, teacher, role model, friend : on being a mentor to students in science and engineering by Institute of Medicine (U. S.)( )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This guide offers helpful advice on how teachers, administrators, and career advisers in science and engineering can become better mentors to their students. It starts with the premise that a successful mentor guides students in a variety of ways: by helping them get the most from their educational experience, by introducing them to and making them comfortable with a specific disciplinary culture, and by offering assistance with the search for suitable employment. Other topics covered in the guide include career planning, time management, writing development, and responsible scientific conduct. Also included is a valuable list of bibliographical and Internet resources on mentoring and related topics." -- Amazon.com viewed February 3, 2021
The hydrogen economy : opportunities, costs, barriers, and R & D needs by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academies' National Research Council appointed the Committee on Alternatives and Strategies for Future Hydrogen Production and Use in the fall of 2002 to address the complex subject of the "hydrogen economy." In particular, the committee carried out these tasks: Assessed the current state of technology for producing hydrogen from a variety of energy sources; Made estimates on a consistent basis of current and future projected costs, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and energy efficiencies for hydrogen technologies; Considered scenarios for the potential penetration of hydrogen into the economy and associated impacts on oil imports and CO2 gas emissions; Addressed the problem of how hydrogen might be distributed, stored, and dispensed to end uses -- together with associated infrastructure issues -- with particular emphasis on light-duty vehicles in the transportation sector; Reviewed the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) research, development, and demonstration (RD & D) plan for hydrogen; and Made recommendations to the DOE on RD & D, including directions, priorities, and strategies. - Executive summary

The Industrial green game : implications for environmental design and management by National Academy of Engineering( )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Industrial ecology is a field of study that provides a basis for sound environmental decision making in government and industry. It provides a framework for designing products, processes, and management strategies and systems that avoid environmental damage. Knowledge about the operation of industrial systems and how they may be modified provides the basis for improving the environmental quality of systems of production and consumption. What industrial ecology is and how it may be applied to corporate environmental practices are the subject of The Industrial Green Game. The volume examines industrial circulation of materials, energy efficiency strategies, "green" accounting, life-cycle analysis, and other approaches for preventing pollution and improving performance. The Industrial Green Game looks at issues of special concern to business, such as measuring and shaping public perceptions and marketing "green" products to consumers. The volume also offers discussions of the appropriate roles of government and private business

Real prospects for energy efficiency in the United States by National Academy of Scien( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America's economy and lifestyles have been shaped by the low prices and availability of energy. In the last decade, however, the prices of oil, natural gas, and coal have increased dramatically, leaving consumers and the industrial and service sectors looking for ways to reduce energy use. To achieve greater energy efficiency, we need technology, more informed consumers and producers, and investments in more energy-efficient industrial processes, businesses, residences, and transportation. As part of the America's Energy Future project, Real Prospects for Energy Efficiency in the United States examines the potential for reducing energy demand through improving efficiency by using existing technologies, technologies developed but not yet utilized widely, and prospective technologies. The book evaluates technologies based on their estimated times to initial commercial deployment, and provides an analysis of costs, barriers, and research needs. This quantitative characterization of technologies will guide policy makers toward planning the future of energy use in America. This book will also have much to offer to industry leaders, investors, environmentalists, and others looking for a practical diagnosis of energy efficiency possibilities."--Page 4 of cover
