A hydrogen economy, in which this one gas provides the source of
all energy needs, is often touted as the long-term solution to the
environmental and security problems associated with fossil fuels.
However, before hydrogen can be used as fuel on a global scale we
must establish cost effective means of producing, storing, and
distributing the gas, develop cost efficient technologies for
converting hydrogen to electricity (e.g. fuel cells), and creating
the infrastructure to support all this. Sorensen is the only text
available that provides up to date coverage of all these issues at
a level appropriate for the technical reader.
The book not only describes the "how" and "where" aspects of
hydrogen fuels cells usage, but also the obstacles and benefits of
its use, as well as the social implications (both economically and
environmental). Written by a world-renowned researcher in energy
systems, this thoroughly illustrated and cross-referenced book is
an excellent reference for researchers, professionals and students
in the field of renewable energy.
