    Introduction to sustainable energy --Economics of energy generation and conservation systems --Wind energy --Capturing solar energy through biomass --Fundamentals of solar radiation --Photovoltaics --Solar heating and cooling of buildings --Solar process heat and thermal power --Passive solar heating, cooling and daylighting --Energy storage. Materials for Sustainable Energy, Vol the latest release in the Advances in Inorganic Chemistry series presents timely and informative summaries on the current progress in a variety of subject areas. In this volume, concise, authoritative reviews provide updates on the photocatalytic generation of solar fuels (heterogeneous systems), Photocatalytic materials for energy and environment.

    The field of renewable energy has grown beyond the use of solar power as an alternative energy source. Offering an interdisciplinary approach, this book presents a comprehensive overview of the many renewable energy courses currently available, which cover biomass and biofuels, solar thermal conversion, hydrogen cells, and wind energy conversion. The primary research focus area has been green engineering and sustainability, with an emphasis on issues of sustainable energy. Abraham has over 70 refereed publications and over 30 additional publications; he has authored/edited nine books, has participated in three patent applications, and has given over technical presentations.
