About this book

This expansive reference on clean energy technologies focuses on tools for system modelling and analysis, and their role in optimizing designs to achieve greater efficiency, minimize environmental impacts and support sustainable development. Key topics ranging from predicting impacts of on-grid energy storage to environmental impact assessments to advanced exergy analysis techniques are covered. The book includes findings both from experimental investigations and functional extant systems, ranging from microgrid to utility-scale implementations. Engineers, researchers and students will benefit from the broad reach and numerous engineering examples provided.

About the authors

Ibrahim Dincer is a full professor of Mechanical Engineering and programs director in the faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at University of Ontario Institute of Technology. Renowned for his pioneering works, he has authored and co-authored many books and book chapters, over 1000 refereed journal and conference papers, and numerous technical reports. He has chaired many national and international conferences, symposia, workshops and technical meetings. He is the founding chair/co-chair of various well-established international conferences, including the International Exergy, Energy, and Environment Symposium. He has delivered over 300 keynote and invited lectures. He is an active member of various international scientific organizations and societies and serves as Editor-In-Chief for International Journal of Energy Research, International Journal of Exergy, and International Journal of Global Warming, as well as associate editor, regional editor and editorial board member on various prestigious international journals. He is a recipient of several research, teaching and service awards, including the Premier’s Research Excellence award in Ontario, Canada, in 2004. He has made innovative contributions to the understanding and development of exergy analysis of advanced energy systems for his so-called five main pillars: (1) better efficiency, (2) better cost-effectiveness, (3) better environment, (4) better sustainability and (5) better energy security. He was the chair of a new technical group in ASHRAE named Exergy Analysis for Sustainable Buildings.
