about this item
The energy supply and demand system has been, still is, and will probably always be of great importance for society. In the last decade, there are rapid changes in the world of energy systems. Therefore, analysis of energy systems is now, more than ever an important area for education, academic research, and professional work.
Introduction to Energy Analysis provides an introduction to energy analysis for those students who want to specialise in this challenging field. In comparison to other textbooks, this book provides a balanced treatment of complete energy systems, covering the demand side, the supply side, and energy markets that connect these. The emphasis is very much on presenting a range of tools and methodologies that will help students find their way in analysing real world problems in energy systems.
Featuring learning objectives, further readings and practical exercises in each chapter, this textbook will be essential reading for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students with a background in the natural sciences and engineering. This book may also be useful for professionals dealing with energy issues, as a first introduction into the field.
