Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Dave Elliott and his authoritative co-authors consider the choices realistically in terms of technology, politics and economics. No other publication is so comprehensive and fair, as we move into an uncharted future.' - Professor John Twidell, Editor of the international journal 'Wind Engineering'

'The book takes a well-structured approach to dealing with what is in all respects a vast subject...Elliott and his co-authors give objective evaluations of the nuclear, wind, biomass, sea and solar power options...The authors consistently provide the podium to all sides of the debate.' - Business& Finance Ireland

'...I highly recommended this book to anyone who is already familiar with the wide range of sustainable energy technologies, but yearns for insights into why the energy revolution hasn't yet started in the UK.' - Dr Simon Roberts, Energy Group Newsletter (Institute of Physics) April 2008
