Review from previous edition: "This is an excellent introductory text which deserves the widest readership".
--Book Review 2004
"This is an outstanding undergraduate textbook which deserves to become the standard text. I can only urge all those who are teaching courses in the field and all students, formal or otherwise, to read and treasure this book".
--Professor Robert Hill, Times Higher Education Supplement, review of the first edition of Renewable Energy.
"It is high time that good textbooks on the subject become available on the market. Renewable Energy: Power for a Sustainable Future, is thus a timely and welcome addition to the existing literature on the subject...Godfrey Boyle and his team of authors have, in my view, managed to produce an
outstanding textbook in which a wealth of information, including an extensive amount of data, is presented in a lucid and comprehensible form."
--The Journal of Energy Literature, March 1997
"It is readily accessible to readers with a wide range of interests and abilities because the complex scientific explanations are presented separately from the main text ... the authors have presented the questions that must be considered. The book contains a wealth of information and is
highly recommended for anyone with an interest in renewable energy technologies and their possible role in our future."
--Nicola Pearsall, Chemistry and Industry, October 1996 25/03/1997
"...an excellent and timely primer...the book strikes an admirable balance between making the principles underlying the renewables as understandable as possible and endeavouring not to oversimplify important technological and economic aspects."
--Resurgence, April 1997
"This book has been produced by a large, expert course team who have carefully researched the area and presented much up to date information. The book is very user-friendly, having many valuable figures, tables and boxes. There are plentiful suggestions for further reading, and students are
guided towards key papers in a range of journals.'
--Paul Phillips, Education in Chemistry, May 1997
"This is an excellent text, covering all the actual and potential sources of renewable energy. The writing is clear and the many excellent diagrams and illustrations complement the written word. Where the treatment is necessarily theoretical the level is appropriate and the argument laid out
in separate text. This book will be highly relevant to any undergraduate studying this important field."
--Aslib Book Guide, vol.61, no.10, October 1996
