about

Introducing Renewable Energy is about renewable energy that you can harness for a small scale 'micro power' project. It is designed to give the reader a view of what renewable energy is, how it works and what it can be used for. The book includes step-by-step instructions for two renewable energy projects, one solar PV and one wind project. However, it is not intended as a detailed 'how to' guide for installing all types of renewable energy system. Renewable energy is a big subject and if you have loftier ambitions than generating a small amount of energy for your own personal use, it is not possible to pack all the information that you are likely to need into a single book. Instead, read this as an introductory guide on the subject that will give you enough grounding for you to extend your knowledge with more specialised information later on.Although this book focuses on small scale renewable energy systems, it also covers larger scale systems at a high level. So if you are interested in finding out about energy production in general, about wind farms, or wish to gain some insight into the emerging title energy technology that promises to revolutionise the way we generate vast quantities of renewable energy in the future, this book will give you an understanding of what is possible with renewable energy, both now and in the near future.Whilst I am a professional renewable energy engineer, I have written this book for the enthusiastic amateur, or for students who want an easy-to-follow introduction to the subject. It is also a perfect introduction for people who are interested in finding out whether they can install their own solar or wind farm, or other industrial scale renewable energy system, and wanting to get some basic understanding of the technology before they call in the professionals.Once you have read this book, you will have a clear understanding of the different options that exist for small renewable energy projects. If you have a project in mind, it will give you enough information for you to decide what type of renewable energy system is right for you and if all you want is a simple renewable energy system for generating some of your own personal off-grid energy, it will give you the knowledge to put together a simple system yourself.
