This revised edition of The Renewable Energy Handbook focuses on the unique requirements of off-grid living as well as using "green" energy for homeowners who remain connected to the electrical utility. The book contains chapters on:

  • Energy efficiency and economics
  • Home heating and cooling, and domestic water heating
  • Photovoltaic, wind and micro-hydro energy generation
  • Battery selection and inverters
  • Backup power, wireless communications and more.
It includes comprehensive specifications for many of the products available in the market today.

Whether you are just curious or an industry expert, this handbook will show you how to stretch your energy dollars (doing much more with less) while powering your home with renewable energy. And, unlike fossil fuels or nuclear energy, renewable energy frees you from worry about dumping today's pollution on tomorrow's children.

Since its release in 2003, The Renewable Energy Handbook has been a top-selling technology book and is recognized as the best in its field.

This edition has been fully revised for 2010 and beyond. It has been increased in size to an easy-to-read 8 x 10 inch format, and it is augmented with hundreds of illustrations, line drawings, photographs and appendices.
