|About the Book|
Energy Power Shift describes a host of exciting emerging technologies enabling communities to produce their own transportation fuels, electricity and heat. The book argues that the US has five times the renewable energy needed for all energy services using local resources and waste streams, and that money currently spent on energy could create instead thousands of new jobs. This analysis of the science, engineering and economics of renewable energy provides a blueprint for an elegant energy solution spurring a new wave of economic development. Barry J. Hanson, a chemist and a mechanical design engineer, is renewable energy consultant in Wisconsin.
