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
- Addresses the wider global view of research advancement and potential in the role of polygeneration and polystorage in the move toward sustainability

Dr Kaveh Rajab Khalilpour is an academic at Monash University with career history at government, industry, and academia. He is also director of a consulting company, Dana Cluster, in the space of energy and sustainability. Dr Khalilpour's key expertise lies in the application of rigorous optimization and decision-making algorithms for design and management of complex socio-technical systems and networks.
Dr Khalilpour's early research started with oil and gas, and over time expanded to carbon management, followed by renewable energies, and energy storage. His current key interest is the critical role of diverse energy generation (polygeneration) and storage (polystorage) systems in the context of integration with networks including electricity, gas, water, food, transport, society, environment, and economy.
More particularly, he works on improving social fairness and justice through optimised physical networks. In his previous book titled "community energy networks with storage he has introduced frameworks for fair and cooperative operation of community-based energy hubs. The current book focuses on complex energy networks consisting of multiple feed, multiple generation, multiple storage, and multiple products with the aim of improving manufacturing flexibility while reducing environmental impacts.
