Andrea McRea


A user’s guide that explains how renewable energy technologies can help meet CO2 reduction targets. McCrea emphasises we need to use these technologies on a much wider scale to produce heat and electricity, and if things could happen sooner rather than later, it then could make an enormous difference.

The author demonstrates that installing renewable energy technology in buildings would be taking a step towards reducing the carbon footprint.

This book covers the current range currently available, which provide energy as heat and electricity for homes and business.

Technologies mentioned are:

: Solar energy using solar panels for hot water and electricity

: Heat pumps, which take heat from the ground for homes and buildings

: Biomass fuels such as wood, waste and specially grown crops

: Wind power, which can provide us with significant amounts of electricity

in the decades ahead

: Hydroelectricity where suitable rivers and streams are available

The author also reviews some of the emerging technologies, such as geothermal, wave and tidal power, and explores their potential in the energy-hungry world of the future. Plus further chapters on “Getting Revenue from Renewable or Microgeneration Electricity” and “Renewable Energy Standards”.

A useful and well illustrated, book but the down side is that it was printed and bound in Singapore.
