Free Access to Articles from the Encyclopedia of Sustainable Technologies
Encyclopedia of Sustainable Technologies provides an authoritative assessment of the sustainable technologies that are currently available or in development. Sustainable technology includes the scientific understanding, development and application of a wide range of technologies and processes and their environmental implications.
Systems and lifecycle analyses of energy systems, environmental management, agriculture, manufacturing and digital technologies provide a comprehensive method for understanding the full sustainability of processes. In addition, the development of clean processes through green chemistry and engineering techniques are also described.
The book is the first multi-volume reference work to employ both Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and Triple Bottom Line (TBL) approaches to assessing the wide range of technologies available and their impact upon the world. Both approaches are long established and widely recognized, playing a key role in the organizing principles of this valuable work. As a taster we are providing free access to the following articles:
Smart Grid by H. Farhangi
Progress in Nuclear Power Technology by V. Nian
Battery Technologies for Energy Storage by Anish Raj K, Sourav Bag, Amlan Roy, Urbi Pal and Sagar Mitra
*Articles are free access until 30th November 2017
These articles are taken from the Reference Module in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences
- The Reference Module combines thousands of essential articles and chapters from 13 of Elsevier’s leading Reference Works to create one interdisciplinary resource on ScienceDirect.
- Articles are continuously reviewed and updated by the expert editorial board and new articles are commissioned to cover the latest research.
- They are hosted on ScienceDirect for quick, efficient and effective searches with dynamic links to journal articles, providing your starting point for research.
- Just as in real-life, the Reference Module treats topics in context rather than in isolation. Covering all areas of the field, the Reference Module provides understanding of the whole spectrum of the subject, essential for researchers and scholars working across multiple disciplines.
Alternative & Renewable Energy
Renewable energy technology and science are rapidly evolving as demand for alternative energy increases worldwide, with far-reachingimplications for global economies, public policy, industrial development, and the environment. The vital research being done in these areas is reflected in Elsevier’s journals, books, eBooks, and information solutions. Our products cover fundamental scientific and technological advances in solar, wind, power transmission, smart grids, and more, with a focus on improving energy efficiency and output among key sectors.
