The book explains all the big categories of energy usage with great clarity and he explains what can be done to reduce usage in all of these areas. In Europe, for example, people use Kwh per day per person, including 40Kwh for transportation, 40Kwh for heating and cooling, and 45Khw to generate the 18Kwh of electricity they use each day.

      Topics such as energy management and energy efficiency are constant imperatives for companies that seek corporate sustainability. With this in mind we built a list of 10 books that will help you better understand the concepts of energy management and energy efficiency and the benefits of a system of efficient management in your organization. In his latest book, Energy and Civilization: A History, he goes deep and broad to explain how innovations in humans’ ability to turn energy into heat, light, and motion have been a driving force behind our cultural and economic progress over the p years. Yes, our history has a lot to do with kings and queens and games of thrones.

Abstract. This book is dedicated to essential strategies to build a world thriving in abundant and ubiquitous energy for all, based only on sunshine, wind, and water, powering and empowering our cities and communities from within at little or no resource cost, building local prosperity and strengthening security and social cohesion: a world in which energy is just no issue—and the source of.
