- Power Generation Handbook: Selection, Application & Operatio
With industrial activity and population expected to increase throughout the rest of the century, large increases in greenhouse gas emissions are projected, with additional and potentially substantial subsequent global warming predicted with a focus on power generation mitigation options, and research and development priorities. This handbook aims to provide a succinct integration of the best knowledge of the projected warming the Earth is likely to experience in the decades ahead, the emission reductions that may be needed to constrain this warming to tolerable levels, and the technologies potentially available to help achieve these emission reductions. All of the technologies will have to be integrated with underground storage, a potentially breakthrough technology, but one which is at an early stage of development. Also important are next generation nuclear power plants. Availability of key technologies will be necessary but not sufficient to limit CO2 emissions. Since many of these technologies have higher costs and/or greater operational uncertainties than currently available carbon intensive technologies, robust regulatory/incentive programs will be necessary to encourage their utilization. This reference handbook is vade macum in the field of power generation, useful to technologists, scholars and teachers, working in this discipline.
