Book description

How will we meet rising energy demands? What are our options? Are there viable long-term solutions for the future? Learn the fundamental physical, chemical and materials science at the heart of renewable/non-renewable energy sources, future transportation systems, energy efficiency and energy storage. Whether you are a student taking an energy course or a newcomer to the field, this textbook will help you understand critical relationships between the environment, energy and sustainability. Leading experts provide comprehensive coverage of each topic, bringing together diverse subject matter by integrating theory with engaging insights. Each chapter includes helpful features to aid understanding, including a historical overview to provide context, suggested further reading and questions for discussion. Every subject is beautifully illustrated and brought to life with full color images and color-coded sections for easy browsing, making this a complete educational package. Fundamentals of Materials for Energy and Environmental Sustainability will enable today's scientists and educate future generations.


'This book represents one of the most integrated texts on the topics of materials for energy and environmental sustainability. Written by leading experts, it represents the most comprehensive review of the state of the art for students, educators, scientists, economists, and policy makers interested in understanding the options provided by advanced materials for solving the global energy problems. [This] book helps integrate the diverse disciplines that will be needed to solve the very complex challenges.'
