Addressing the needs of engineers, energy planners, and policy makers, CRC Handbook of Energy Efficiency provides up-to-date information on all important issues related to efficient energy use, including: Efficient energy technologies Economics Utility restructuring Integrated resource planning Energy efficient building design Industrial energy conservation Wind energy Solar thermal systems Photovoltaics Renewable energy Cogeneration Fossil fuel cost projections The rapid changes that characterize the technology of energy generation systems, and the forthcoming competition among energy producers, make this handbook a must for anyone involved in the science, technology, or policy of energy. The 53 expert contributors from industry, government, and universities, and the 600+ figures and tables make CRC Handbook of Energy Efficiency a professional and valuable resource.To supply a daily energy demand of 3.3 kWh (100 kWh/month), a3 kW generator would recharge the batteries in less than 2 hours (70% battery energy efficiency). ... These pumps can readily be fitted with a DC motor, thus eliminating the need for a DC-to-AC inverter. ... the charging current will be only slightly less than the short-circuit current of a blocking diode low voltage cut-off switch photovoltaicanbsp;...
