Physics and Technology of Sustainable Energy, Illustrated Edition(PDF) explores the science and technologies required for renewable energy. It explores the properties of the earth’s atmosphere for transmitting light in from the sun and mediating the discharge of infrared energy from the ground, a part that has an effect on the temperature of the earth. It starts by explaining how the sun works, that is by nuclear fusion, and the fundamental concepts of quantum tunneling needed are later improved to enable a competent treatment of
semiconductor physics, the discipline behind solar cells.

The ebook covers hydroelectric power, wind turbine technology, and pumped-hydro energy storage. It also discusses the history of the Earth’s climate and discusses the consequences that the present fossil fuel burning, directing to large emission of greenhouse gas, may have on the upcoming temperature of the earth.

The sustainable energy discussed in this ebook will be available in the long term, past the outstanding availability of carbon energy, and is also energy that will not tilt the climate into warmer conditions. In relation to this, the action of the atmosphere is evaluated both for its transmission of sunlight to the surface for use in solar power, and in secondary forms like wind, waves, and hydroelectricity. Greenhouse gas impurities, like carbon dioxide, are also examined for their effects on the atmosphere. Building on this analysis, predictions for sustainable energy and moderate climate are assessed.
