Climate change, renewable energy and low carbon transition are arguably the most debated topics of the twenty-first century. Climate and Energy Decoded provides a rare, unbiased overview of these critical topics. The book also methodically debunks the related myths. The daily glut of biased information is leading to ill-informed discussions. In this book, Dr. Tushar Choudhary, a highly awarded industry expert, focuses on both science and practical matters for his clarifying analysis. Such an analysis, which uses the most reliable data available, is essential for informed debates. This concise book addresses all crucial aspects about climate and energy. Climate discussions include the history of climate change, the science behind climate change and myths about climate change.
Most local/national governments around the globe are pushing for the increased implementation of technologies such as solar, wind, battery storage, biofuels, hydropower, electric cars, etc. A large amount of information is available on these alternative energy technologies. However, the comparison of these technologies in terms of their abilities to address the critical challenges associated with this complex problem is missing. This book addresses the above important gap by providing a systematic analysis on the following topics:
a) Critical challenges associated with the targeted CO2 emission reduction,
b) Comparison of the technologies in terms of their abilities to address the critical challenges
c) Prioritization of the technologies based on this comparison
The book reveals several surprising insights about the low-carbon technologies and their wide-scale implementation. This will hopefully prompt discussions about certain misleading assumptions that have gained traction in the society.
