Energy Opportunities & Social Responsibility

Energy is an indispensable resource that is required to run the economy and sustain the well being of people. The rapidly developing economies of Third World countries like China and India need to generate increasing amounts of energy as they grow. However, the situation has become complicated after discovery of the functional linkages between CO2 emission from fossil fuels like coal and petroleum. Hence, there is a global search for carbon free energy technology.

Generation of energy is both a technological issue as well as a social commitment. The author has addressed these issues covering all major methods of energy generation. He believes that without social support, the technologists cannot derive effective gains from their discoveries. While dealing with each type of technology for generation, the reciprocity between theory and social response has been maintained throughout the book.
