"Hydroelectricity is the world's largest -- and cleanest -- source of renewable -energy. But despite lively interest in renewables generally, there is an information vacuum about the smallest version of the technology dubbed "the simplest, most reliable and least expensive way to generate power off grid."
"Highly illustrated and practical, Microhydro is the first complete book on the topic in a decade. Covering both AC and DC systems, it covers principles, design and site considerations, equipment options, and legal, environmental, and economic factors.
"Scott Davis has decades of experience operating, installing, designing, selling, and teaching about microhydro technology. An award-winner in the field, he currently works as a system designer and retailer with an alternative energy company for whom he has authored an on-line microhydro course."

Book Info
Text highlights the need for alternative energy sources and surveys new sources available for use in the twenty-first century. Offers abundant halftone illustrations, appendices, references, and index. For engineers, scientists, and students.
Book Description
Energy: Technology and Directions for the Future presents the fundamentals of energy for scientists and engineers. It is a survey of energy sources that will be available for use in the 21st century energy mix. The reader will learn about the history and science of several energy sources as well as the technology and social significance of energy. Themes in the book include thermodynamics, electricity distribution, geothermal energy, fossil fuels, solar energy, nuclear energy, alternate energy (wind, water, biomass), energy and society, energy and the environment, sustainable development, the hydrogen economy, and energy forecasting. The approach is designed to present an intellectually rich and interesting text that is also practical.This is accomplished by introducing basic concepts in the context of energy technologies and, where appropriate, in historical context. Scientific concepts are used to solve concrete engineering problems.
The technical level of presentation presumes that readers have completed college level physics with calculus and mathematics through calculus of several variables. The selection of topics is designed to provide the reader with an introduction to the language, concepts and techniques used in all major energy components that are expected to contribute to the 21st century energy mix. Future energy professionals will need to understand the origin and interactions of these energy components to thrive in an energy industry that is evolving from an industry dominated by fossil fuels to an industry working with many energy sources.

Goodell, Jeff. Big coal: the dirty secret behind America’s energy future. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 2006.
Abstract: Few of us realize that every time we flip on a switch, we burn a lump of coal--our shiny white iPod economy is propped up by dirty black rocks. Despite a legacy that has claimed millions of lives and ravaged the environment, coal has become hot again. Our desire to find a homegrown alternative to Mideast oil, the rising cost of oil and natural gas, and the mood in Washington will soon push our coal consumption through the roof. Because we have failed to develop alternative energy sources, coal has become the default fuel for the 21st century. Veteran journalist Goodell examines the faulty assumptions underlying coal’s revival and shatters the myth of cheap coal energy. In a blend of investigative reporting, history, and business analysis, he illuminates the troubling economic imperatives America faces and the collusion of business and politics that has set us on this dangerous course.--From publisher description.

Notes: list price: 24.95 USD
Publisher's announcement: "...authors Kira Gould and Lance Hosey outline how the future of sustainability will depend on women and the perspectives they bring to every field. Drawing from conversations with nearly 200 architects, designers, activists, policymakers, writers, educators, and students, the authors conclude that women are changing how we all see our work and our world.
"Exploring a variety of topics ranging from communities to buildings to product design, the book explains, for the first time, how the sustainable design field is influenced by women and women’s ways of working. In addition to gathering input from a cross-section of individuals involved in environmental and sustainability issues, the authors surveyed a broad range of literature, reviewed a number of studies and compared statistics from various organizations. What they discovered is a real need for all of us to find more balanced ways of working and living."

Abstract: From the publisher: The first of its kind, this beautiful softcover book contains photos of winning green dollhouse designs from the 2005 Green Dollhouse Project competition, a national contest sponsored by Sustainable San Mateo County in northern California.
Although energy efficiency, water conservation, the use of nontoxic building materials and other sustainable practices are gradually making inroads into mainstream home building, many people still think of green building as a specialty subject that isn't applicable everywhere," said Jason F. McLennan, president of Ecotone. "The Green Dollhouse book will help change that perception by showing children and adults how we can all take action to make our homes healthier and more sustainable."
The book contains photos of carefully designed dollhouses along with narratives by green building experts. Each dollhouse depicts an actual scale-model home designed for active play that incorporate sustainable design features. The dollhouses successfully convey green building concepts including energy efficiency, renewable energy generation, passive solar design, environmentally preferable materials, and much more. Several howto chapters encourage others to build their own Green Dollhouse.
An exhibit of the winning green dollhouses and many others selected from the competition submittals will begin a select tour of museums in the fall. For more information about the competition, project team, sponsors and exhibit schedule see http://www.greendollhouse.org.

Jones, Christopher F.. Routes of Power: Energy and Modern America. : Harvard University Press, .
Abstract: From the publisher:
The fossil fuel revolution is usually rendered as a tale of historic advances in energy production. In this perspective-changing account, Christopher F. Jones instead tells a story of advances in energy access—canals, pipelines, and wires that delivered power in unprecedented quantities to cities and factories at a great distance from production sites. He shows that in the American mid-Atlantic region between 1820 and 1930, the construction of elaborate transportation networks for coal, oil, and electricity unlocked remarkable urban and industrial growth along the eastern seaboard. But this new transportation infrastructure did not simply satisfy existing consumer demand—it also whetted an appetite for more abundant and cheaper energy, setting the nation on a path toward fossil fuel dependence.

Between the War of 1812 and the Great Depression, low-cost energy supplied to cities through a burgeoning delivery system allowed factory workers to mass-produce goods on a scale previously unimagined. It also allowed people and products to be whisked up and down the East Coast at speeds unattainable in a country dependent on wood, water, and muscle. But an energy-intensive America did not benefit all its citizens equally. It provided cheap energy to some but not others; it channeled profits to financiers rather than laborers; and it concentrated environmental harms in rural areas rather than cities.

Today, those who wish to pioneer a more sustainable and egalitarian energy order can learn valuable lessons from this history of the nation’s first steps toward dependence on fossil fuels.

Note the mistake in the physics of the assumption, at the top of page 164, that weight makes a difference in mileage in freeway driving. A physics student should be able to reason that changing weight only makes a difference in the efficiency of acceleration and not cruising. It is interesting to note that accelerating from 30 to 60 does take 3 times as much energy as accelerating from 0 to 30 (units don't matter).

What's the difference between gamma rays, X-rays, and microwaves? Now you can discover the answers to these and many other fascinating questions about energy for yourself with this fun-filled science resource. Packed with illustrations, Janice VanCleave's Energy for Every Kid presents entertaining, challenging experiments and activities to help you understand the different types of energy-including heat, sound, electricity, and light-and how they bring about change in the world around you. You'll develop your problem-solving skills as you create a "leaping frog" that turns potential energy into kinetic energy, model sound waves with a Slinky®, use a balloon to demonstrate static electricity, make "sun" tea with solar energy, and much more! Each of the activities is broken down into its purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy-to-understand explanation. Plus, all projects have been pretested so you can perform them safely and inexpensively in the classroom, at a science fair, or at home!
