Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is an excellent text, which gives a comprehensive description of the technologies associated with the introduction of the hydrogen economy and more importantly a similarly comprehensive and balanced coverage of the complex and often contradictory issues surrounding hydrogen energy. Written at a level that has something for everyone. The Book is more than just a text, it is a wide ranging analysis of the twin issues facing the global energy industry. I urge everyone who has an interest in energy or hydrogen, from student to policymaker to read this book. I certainly learned a great deal from reading it, in fact i wish i had written it.
Chemsuschem
"...detialed survey of the hydrogen economy is essential reading for both specialists, industry managers and why not, politicians who wish to have a non-ideological and judicious view of the hydrogen economy."
Angewandte Chemie
"..is a valuable source of up-to-date information with a wealth of data throughly collected and referenced at the end of each chapter."..well illustrated with photos, schematic drawings and presetations of data in graphs or tables. Complex mathematical formulas are avoided, which makes the book easy to read and suitable for a wide readership with the common background of natural science."
Energy News
"This book is therefore very timely i would recommend it highly for undergraduates, postgraduates and to all energy professionals and government agencies who want a succinct but authoritative summary of the challenges and prospects for hydrogen energy."
