I was researching the potential of renewables and energy efficiency in America for a book I was writing and I came across a series of nine papers written for the American Solar Energy Society national conference (Solar2006). This series of papers were excellent and I decided I could not do better than incorporate them into Hitting the Wall: A Vision of a Secure Energy Future. This is normally not possible since it is rare for two papers to compliment each other with the same ground rules so that they can be directly compared. But all nine papers were written with the same set of assumptions and the results could be accumulated for the total impact of the six major renewables and the three major energy efficiency sectors. Chuck Kutscher conceived this brilliant approach, and he invited the 18 expert authors to participate by contributing significant papers. Mr. Kutscher then wrote the summary paper putting it all together and added sections on climate change to complete the book. This is a first rate enterprise and I highly recommend it to anyone who wonders what the potential of these non-carbon options are to meeting the carbon emission reduction goals needed to avoid the worst aspects of climate change.

Format: Perfect Paperback
This collection of information about renewable energy sources is valuable not only for the data and graphics, but for its recognition that energy efficiency is the least expensive and largest contributor to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.

I have used many of the numbers, graphs and maps from Tackling Climate Change in presentations. From my architectural experience, I also believe that many of the estimates are quite conservative. Energy efficiency promises even larger contributions, in daylighting for example; CSP (Concentrating solar power) can also be implemented on less-flat land; wind power need not be limited to 20% of the grid (given improved storage techniques); and technical advances and cost reductions in PV will broaden its contribution, particularly in building-integrated applications.

Thus, this book's illustration that efficiency and renewables could account for at least 51% of the US electricity grid by 2030 is readily believable. It is an extensively illustrated, well researched collection. Congratulations to the American Solar Energy Society for reaching well beyond solar in this commendable effort.

Tackling Climate Change in the U.S. provides the encouraging news that we have the necessary technology available today to radically reduce carbon emissions and meet our growing energy needs. The expert analysis details how we can mitigate climate change through aggressive deployment of existing energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. The compelling report emphasizes the importance of increasing energy efficiency in buildings, industry, and transportation and analyzes renewable technologies such as concentrating solar power, photovoltaics, wind, biomass, biofuels and geothermal.
