About this product
- DescriptionDelving into the connections between renewable energy and ecomics on an international level, this book focuses specifically on hydropower and geothermal power production for use in the power intensive industry. It takes readily available government and international statistics to provide insight into how businesses and ecomists can interpret the factors that influence the growth of power intensive industries. It also discusses the CarbFix and SulFix projects that involve the injection of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), and carbon dioxide (CO2) back to reservoir as an emission reduction method. With improved engineering processes, both types of power generation are increasingly subject to ecomies of scale. These exciting techlogical developments have a great potential to change the way the world works, as the ecomy continues to rely so heavily on energy to drive production. Green energy is without a question going to be a major factor in our future, so studying it at its nascence is particularly exciting. This book is intended for academic researchers and students interested in current ecomic and environmental hot topics, as well as people interested in the inner workings of a possible new investment opportunity.
