Imprint Amsterdam : Elsevier Science, 2019
book jacket
Descript 1 online resource
Note Introductory concepts -- Dealing with energy units, measures, and statistics -- Primary energy trends -- Energy-flow analyses and efficiency indicators -- Electric power sector energy efficiency -- Industrial sector energy efficiency -- Transportation sector energy efficiency -- Residential and commercial sector energy efficiency -- Policy instruments to foster energy efficiency
'Energy Efficiency: Concepts and Calculations' is the first book of its kind to provide an applied, systems oriented description of energy intensity and efficiency in modern economies across the entire energy chain. With an emphasison analysis, specifically energy flow analysis, lifecycle energy accounting, economic analysis, technology evaluation, and policies/strategies for adopting high energy efficiency standards, the book provides a comprehensive understanding ofthe concepts, tools and methodologies for studying and modeling macro-level energy flows through, and within, key economic sectors (electric power, industrial, commercial, residential and transportation). Providing a technical discussion ofthe application of common methodologies (e.g. cost-benefit analysis and lifecycle assessment), each chapter contains figures, charts and examples from each sector, including the policies that have been put in place to promote and incentivize the adoption of energy efficient technologies. -- Provided by publisher
