Renewable and sustainable energy systems offer the potential for long-term solutions to the world's growing energy needs, operating at a broad array of scales and technology levels. This book series seeks to bring together topics relating to renewable energy, from generation, to transmission, storage, integration and use patterns, with a particular focus on systems-level and interdisciplinary discussions. The series is intended to provide a state of the art resource for all researchers involved in the power conversation. and as an e-first book series, we encourage the use of suitable multimedia, and books in the series will range from graduate-level textbooks, research monographs and reviews.
David Elliott is emeritus Professor of Technology Policy at the Open University, where he developed courses and research on technological innovation, focusing on renewable energy policy. Since retirement, he has continued to write extensively on that topic, including a series of books for IOP Publishing and a weekly blog post for Physics World (physicsworld.com/author/david-elliott).
