Douglas J Reinemann, Professor of Biological Systems Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA Review from previous edition I have reviewed many textbooks on renewable energy and this one stands clearly above them all. It provides an excellent balance between technical content and practical application.

James Leidel, Director of Clean Energy Syctems, Oakland University, USA The quality of illustrations in Renewable Energy , as well as the inclusion of energy data for North America, make this and its sister volume, Energy Systems and Sustainability , my top choice for any energy program in higher education.

Ian Mason, University of Canterbury, NZ A great introductory text for teaching, and an excellent reference for your bookshelf.

Paul Younger, University of Glasgow An excellent overview of all the principal renewable energy technologies, placing them in the context of the overall power system. Individual chapters are all written by experts, but edited into a common style so that the level of detail is comparable across all chapters. The best book of its sort on the market.

Tom Norton, Harper Adams University, UK Excellent textbook for an introductory course on renewable energy systems. Some mathematical principles are introduced to reinforce concepts. Overall excellent material to get undergraduate students engaged with the field before digging into the detail.

Peter Connor, University of Exeter This textbook continues the high standards of previous editions in terms of the clarity with which it explains the technologies while offering high quality graphics.
