Wind Power in Argentina: Ready For Take-off?
Photovoltaics in the Urban Environment
Lessons Learnt from Large Scale Projects
Edited By Bruno Gaiddon, Henk Kaan and Donna Munro
The concept of cities as potential photovoltaic power plants is rapidly gaining prominence, but until now there has been no large scale study of the impacts of such development on urban fabric and infrastructure, or on inhabitants. This book, based on wide-ranging studies supported by the European Commission and International Energy Agency, is the first to properly address these issues.

The Future of Energy Use
Following the success of its predecessor, this second edition of The Future of Energy Use provides essential analysis of the use of different forms of energy and their environmental and social impacts. It examines conventional, nuclear and renewable sources and technologies, using relevant case studies and providing a vital link between technology and related policy issues. The new edition has been comprehensively developed and updated, including new text, diagrams and tables, with entire new sections that reflect the significant changes that have occurred since the first edition.
Energy from the Desert
Very Large Scale Photovoltaic Systems: Socio-economic, Financial, Technical and Environmental Aspects
Edited By Keiichi Komoto, Masakazu Ito, Peter van der Vleuten, David Faiman and Kosuke Kurokawa
The world's deserts are sufficiently large that, in theory, covering a fraction of their landmass with PV systems could generate many times the current primary global energy supply. The third book in the Energy from the Desert series examines the socio-economic, environmental and financial issues surrounding the use of Very Large Scale Photovoltaics (VLS-PV). It provides detailed coverage of technology and financing options (including recent and future trends in PV technology), potential social benefits such as desalination and agricultural development, and environmental and ecological impacts of systems and how these can be monitored, illustrated by case studies from the Sahara and Gobi Deserts. The concluding section consists of a roadmap outlining the options and opportunities for future implementation of VLS-PV.
Marine Energy: How Much Development Potential Is There?
How much marine energy is available for development in the U.S.? This article provides information on the amount of electrical capacity available and extractable from two forms of marine energy: wave and kinetic stream.
Of all the large natural resources available for generating electricity in the U.S., ocean energy may be one of the last investigated for its potential.

International Energy Agency (IEA). Points the Way to a Clean Energy Future
The IEA's "World Energy Outlook 2006" shows that global energy demand increasing 53 percent by 2030, while global carbon dioxide emissions increase by 55 percent. Key government policies and measures could easily put the world on a sustainable energy path.
The German Advisory Council on the Environment (SRU) has recently published the following statement:
