Wind Power in Argentina: Ready For Take-off?
Photovoltaics in the Urban Environment
Lessons Learnt from Large Scale
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
Low Carbon Electricity Systems

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
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.

The Cost of Power Generation
The Cost of Power Generation is a new report
published by Business Insights that assesses the current and
future case for investment in traditional versus renewable
energy. This report analyzes all available data to directly
compare the investment case and future prospects of
different power generation technologies.
Macroeconomic Impacts of the Clean Development Mechanism: The Role of Investment Barriers and Regulations.
The paper quantifies the macroeconomic impacts of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) under the Kyoto Protocol based on a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of international trade and energy use.

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.
