Energy Science

Principles, Technologies, and Impacts

Third Edition

John Andrews and Nick Jelley

  • Covers the latest technological and conceptual advances in energy science
  • Specific pedagogical focus given to ensuring mathematical content is accessible to all students, regardless of academic background

New to this Edition:

  • A new chapter on 'Energy demand in buildings, industry, and transport' ties together the social, economic, and environmental strands of the subject whilst discussing the most cutting edge technological developments
  • A specific focus has been given to making the mathematical content in the third edition more accessible; a mathematical toolkit has been added to the introductory chapter, more challenging mathematical exercises are clearly sign posted, and non-essential derivations have been moved to the end of chapters so that they can be skipped by those who prefer to concentrate on mastering the fundamentals
  • New material has been added on 'hot topics' such as fracking and electric vehicles
  • New case studies from around the world look at real-world applications of energy technology
  • Open ended discussion questions have been added to case studies to encourage students to reflect on what they have just learnt and apply conceptual knowledge to real-world scenarios
  • Chapter 10, on electricity and energy storage has been significantly re-worked to include discussion of distributed generation, and energy storage outlook
