About this item

This book is about ”energy” and the energy policy choices which face society. Presenting easy-to-grasp information and analysis, the book includes statistical data for energy production and consumption and simple formulas. Among the aspects considered are: science, technology, economics and the impact on health and the environment.

In this new edition we have added two new  chapters on subjects which have become important since the first edition. The first one deals with unconventional fossil fuels, a resource which has become very important  from the economical point of view, especially in the United States. The second added chapter presents  the applications of nanotechnology in the energy domain. Nanotechnology is becoming more and more important, either  in improving already existing technologies or by introducing new ones. The goal is to decrease costs and the amount of raw materials required, an important issue as far as sustainable development is concerned.
