About this book

Presenting the latest research on the sustainable development of energy systems, this book provides a broad and holistic perspective on various aspects of renewable energy sources and grid integration. It highlights the integration of renewable and alternative systems into existing infrastructures, and explores the synchronization of environmental and development needs with other social challenges. The research presented is supported by original illustrations and tables, and provide the basis for future research on the topic. Offering an invaluable resource to those working in sustainable development, this book is also intended for students and researchers of engineering, economics and social sciences, as well as government entities and librarians.
