Introduction. Sustainable Energy Development Strategies typically involve three major technological changes: energy savings on the demand side [1], [2], efficiency improvements in the energy production [3], [4], and replacement of fossil fuels by various sources of renewable energy [5], [6].

Consequently, large-scale renewable energy implementation plans must include strategies for integrating renewable sources in coherent energy systems Cited by: cities and municipalities to include renewable energy targets in their building codes.

The private sector is also looking at renewable energy options for operations that are heavy consumers of electricity, such as data centres. Google had announced a goal of % renewable energy power and their commitment to purchase ~GW of renewable energy.

These are the questions answered by this key book which analyses the current situation of renewable energy in Europe, examines the latest technological, financial and economic developments, and outlines ways in which the renewable energy market can be developed. The share of renewables in gross final consumption of energy is one of the headline indicators of the Europe strategy.

The EU's target is to obtain 20% of energy in gross final consumption of energy from renewable sources by and at least 32% by These figures come from an article issued by Eurostat, the statistical office of the. This book bringing together leading researchers in the field of renewable energy to discuss sustainability on a broad scale and to examine the status quo of renewable energy industry development in a Renewable Energy in Europe.

Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished). About 16% of global final energy consumption comes from renewables, with 10% coming from traditional biomass, which is mainly used for heating, and % from hydroelectricity.

The report 'EU Governance of Renewable Energy post – risks and options' provides innovative ideas for the current debate on future EU energy governance and renewables policy in order to accelerate the transition to a renewables-based energy system in Europe.

Introduction. According to BP's Energy Outlook, renewable energy will be the fastest-growing source of energy, increasing five-fold by thus providing around 14% of global primary energy at this future point in time [ 1 ].Cited by: 3.

e-books in Renewable Energy category Following the Sun by Robin Tennant-Wood - ANU E Press, This book traces the history of solar energy research at ANU over 35 years from its origin, its controversial early stages, through its flagship projects to its current status as one of the world's best known solar energy research establishments.

In Julythe French parliament passed a comprehensive energy and climate law that includes a mandatory renewable energy target requiring 40% of national electricity production to come from renewable sources by Inrenewable electricity accounted for % of France's total domestic power consumption, of which % was provided by hydroelectricity, % by wind power.

In this ready reference, top academic researchers, industry players and government officers join forces to develop commercial concepts for the transition from current nuclear or fossil fuel-based energy to renewable energy systems within a limited time span.
