An In-Depth Introduction to Geothermal Energy
Addressing significant changes in the energy markets since the first edition, Geothermal Energy: Renewable Energy and the Environment, Second Edition expounds on the geothermal industry, exploring the expansion, growth, and development of geothermal systems. This text covers every area of geothermal energy, including environmental and economic issues, and technological advancements. "
Considers the Vast Technological Achievements within the Geothermal Industry
"
Factoring in new concepts for distributed generation, hybrid technologies, and the development of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS), the book incorporates real-world examples designed to illustrate the key aspects of chapter topics. It provides case studies in nearly every chapter, and includes examples from the U.S., Iceland, France, and Japan.
  • Contains comprehensive, quantitative, and rigorous treatment of the geology, geochemistry, and geophysics of geothermal resources, and how they impact exploration, resource assessment, and operations
  • Provides a state-of-the-art description of current Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS)
  • Presents an objective description of the most recent economic comparisons including all energy resources
  • Covers environmental issues of energy use and quantitative descriptions of the relative impacts of all renewable and non-renewable energy resources
  • Describes geothermal resources from a global perspective, including direct use and geothermal heat pump applications, as well as power production
Geothermal Energy: Renewable Energy and the Environment, Second Edition can be used for undergraduate coursework; as a reference for designers, planners, engineers, and architects; and as a source of background material for policymakers, investors, and regulators.

Recenzii

"Great introductory treatment of all aspects of geothermal energy from sources and occurrences, to exploration and utilization, to economic and environmental aspects, and to the future possibilities."
Andrew Chiasson, Oregon Institute of Technology, Klamath Falls, USA

"This book provides a thorough, solid grounding in the basic physical science needed to understand geothermal energy. This is not always the case in writings on renewable energy! The reader of Glassley s book will come away with a clear understanding of basic thermodynamics, geophysics, and geochemistry at a fundamental level. That leads to a deeper appreciation for the technological needs and challenges of geothermal energy systems. The book is quantitative throughout an essential feature if one is to grasp the true potential of any renewable energy resource."
Richard Wolfson, Professor of Physics & Environmental Studies, Middlebury College, Vermont, USA

" provides an excellent general discussion of the major elements in this new aspect of geothermal energy development such as the "magnitude" and "characteristics" of these systems for the non-geoscientist as well as undergraduate and graduate science students."
Joe Iovenitti, Consulting Geoscientist, USA
"This textbook will help educate the next generation of geothermal practitioners who will implement the solutions needed to grow geothermal energy so that it becomes a key part of the future renewable energy mix."
Trenton Cladouhos, AltaRock Energy, Inc., Seattle, Washington, USA
"

"This is a very well written book and is very useful for both scientists as well as technologists as the ready reference for geothermal energy. It deals with every possible latest aspect with basic concepts along with the mathematical description. It will certainly be very handy for the planner as well as students who like to tap the potential of alternate energy resource."
Professor Sandeep Singh, IIT Roorkee, India
