Concepts and Calculations
Energy Efficiency: Concepts and Calculations is the first book of its kind to provide an applied, systems oriented description of energy intensity and efficiency in modern economies across the entire energy chain. With an emphasis on analysis, specifically energy flow analysis, lifecycle energy accounting, economic analysis, technology evaluation, and policies/strategies for adopting high energy efficiency standards, the book provides a comprehensive understanding of the concepts, tools and methodologies for studying and modeling macro-level energy flows through, and within, key economic sectors (electric power, industrial, commercial, residential and transportation).
Providing a technical discussion of the application of common methodologies (e.g. cost-benefit analysis and lifecycle assessment), each chapter contains figures intended to be diagnostic, charts and examples from each sector, including the policies that have been put in place to promote and incentivize the adoption of energy efficient technologies.
- Contains models and tools to analyze each stage at the macro-level by tracking energy consumption and how the resulting data might change energy use
- Includes accessible references and a glossary of common terms at the end of each chapter
- Provides diagnostic figures, tables and schematics within the context of local, regional and national energy consumption and utilization
