Dunlap's SUSTAINABLE ENERGY, 2nd Edition explores present and future energy needs as well as options for continued use of fossil fuels and alternative energy sources. Individual chapters thoroughly investigate each energy approach as the author emphasizes the complexity of energy issues and the need for a multidisciplinary approach to solve today's energy problems. Quantitative problems require students to analyze information, correlate data from various sources, and interpret graphical data and interpolate values. Students review real problems in producing and using energy and realize the importance of a broad-based analysis. MindTap Engineering is also available.
