TY - CHAP A1 - Thomas J. Hammons ED1 - Arzu Sencan Sahin Y1 - 2012-05-11 PY - 2012 T1 - Globalization of the Natural Gas Market on Natural Gas Prices in Electric Power Generation and Energy Development N2 - This book includes solar energy, wind energy, hybrid systems, biofuels, energy management and efficiency, optimization of renewable energy systems and much more. Subsequently, the book presents the physical and technical principles of promising ways of utilizing renewable energies. The authors provide the important data and parameter sets for the major possibilities of renewable energies utilization which allow an economic and environmental assessment. Such an assessment enables us to judge the chances and limits of the multiple options utilizing renewable energy sources. It will provide useful insights in the modeling and optimization of different renewable systems. The primary target audience for the book includes students, researchers, and people working on renewable energy systems.
