Polygeneration with Polystorage: For Energy and Chemicals addresses the problem of both traditional and dispersed generation with a broad, multidisciplinary perspective. As the first book to thoroughly focus on the topic of polygeneration, users will find the problem presented from different scientific and technical domains down to both macro and micro levels. Detailed analyses and state-of-the-art developments in specific fields are included, focusing on storage in conventional energy supply chains and demand-side renewable polygeneration systems, management advice and the necessary market mechanisms needed to support them. This reference is useful for academics and professionals in conventional and unconventional energy systems.
- Includes an outlined framework towards polygeneration and polystorage down to both micro and macro levels
- Contains fluid and continuous chapters that provide detailed analysis and a review of the state-of-the-art developments in specific fields

Dr Kaveh Rajab Khalilpour is currently a senior research fellow with Monash Energy Materials and Systems Institute (MEMSI), at Monash University. He is also a senior research fellow at the University of Sydney. Dr Khalilpour holds four formal degrees in Engineering including a BSs (hons), a MSc and two PhD degrees. He has over 15 years of industrial and academic experience mainly in the field of energy systems. Dr Khalilpour's key expertise is the application of rigorous optimization and decision making algorithms to complex energy problems. His early research started with oil and gas, and over time expanded to carbon management, followed by renewable energies. In recent years, His research has made a major focus on energy storage integration to energy networks as a necessity of high renewable technology penetration.
