The new green industrial revolution is driven by a variety of global environmental concerns. In some regions, it is spurred by the scarcity of cheap affordable renewable energy that will also lead to a reduced reliance on fossil fuel in the production of power. In others, it is driven by a need to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from power generation. This book provides a comprehensive review of the most popular green "disruptive” technologies in energy production as well as their economic impact. In addition, the book includes a multitude of international case studies where these technologies are currently deployed and their economic impact on the region.
  • Clearly explains the scientific, engineering, technological, and economics driving the Green Revolution in power generation
  • A guide to technologies such as renewable energy, smart green grids, and emission control technologies
  • Packed with international case studies that provides real-world examples of how these technologies are currently being deployed around the world
  • Explains the economic impact which these new technologies will play in building global sustainability
