The Grid: The Fraying Wires Between Americans and Our Energy by Gretchen Bakke

By Gretchen Bakke

America’s electric grid, an engineering triumph of the 20th century, is popping out to be a bad healthy for the current. It’s not only that the grid has grown outdated and is now in dire want of easy fix. this present day, as we make investments nice wish in new strength sources--solar, wind, and different alternatives--the grid is what stands such a lot firmly within the approach of a brighter strength destiny. If we are hoping to achieve this destiny, we have to re-imagine the grid in response to twenty-first-century values. It’s a venture which forces visionaries to paintings with bureaucrats, legislators with storm-flattened groups, moneymen with hippies, and the left with the ideal. And although it could actually now not but be noticeable, this revolution is already good less than way.

Cultural anthropologist Gretchen Bakke unveils the various aspects of America's strength infrastructure, its so much dynamic moments and its so much solid ones, and its crucial position in own and nationwide lifestyles. The grid, she argues, is an primarily American artifact, one that built with us: a fabricated from daring growth, the occasional foolhardy imaginative and prescient, a few genius applied sciences, and relentless improvisation. such a lot of all, her concentration is on how americans are altering the grid right away, occasionally with gumption and massive desires and infrequently with laws or the brandishing of guns.

The Grid tells--entertainingly, perceptively--the tale of what has been referred to as “the biggest computing device within the world”: its attention-grabbing heritage, its not easy current, and its capability function in a brighter, purifier future.

By Vladimir S. Bagotsky

The finished, available advent to gasoline cells, their functions, and the demanding situations they pose

Fuel cells—electrochemical power units that produce electrical energy and heat—present an important chance for purifier, more uncomplicated, and simpler power. in spite of the fact that, the thrill over gasoline cells in the learn group has ended in such speedy innovation and improvement that it may be tough for these now not in detail accustomed to the technological know-how concerned to determine precisely how this new know-how can be utilized. gasoline Cells: difficulties and ideas, moment version addresses this factor head on, providing an important information regarding those outstanding energy assets in an easy-to-understand way.

Comprising 4 vital sections, the booklet explores:

  • the basics of gasoline cells, how they paintings, their background, and lots more and plenty more

  • the key forms of gas cells, together with proton alternate membrane gas cells (PEMFC), direct liquid gas cells (DLFC), and lots of others

  • The clinical and engineering difficulties concerning gasoline mobile technology

  • The commercialization of gas cells, together with a glance at their makes use of round the world

Now in its moment version, this e-book good points totally revised insurance of the modeling of gasoline cells and small gasoline cells for moveable units, and all-new chapters at the structural and wetting homes of gas mobile parts, experimental tools for gasoline phone stacks, and nonconventional layout rules for gas cells, bringing the content material absolutely brand new.

Designed for complex undergraduate and graduate scholars in engineering and chemistry courses, in addition to execs operating in comparable fields, gasoline Cells is a compact and obtainable advent to the intriguing international of gasoline cells and why they topic.
