Decarbonising Electricity Made Simple Paperback / softback
Part of the Routledge Explorations in Energy Studies series
This book assesses how low-carbon generation, the advance of energy storage and consumer-based models can help decarbonise electricity supplies at a national level. This book is built around developing a decarbonised electricity mix for Britain which reduces fossil fuels from 50% of supply in 2018 down to levels within 2030 carbon targets.
Crossland explores the idea of a future energy storage mix which blends domestic batteries, vehicles, thermal stores and pumped hydro to provide a flexible, responsive electricity system.
He then goes on to look at how much storage can contribute to decarbonisation in a multitude of contexts - from domestic to national electricity.
This book also discusses how efficiency and self-sufficiency can bring about a decarbonised electricity use within our homes today.
Britain is used as the main example, but the themes and conclusions are applicable to a global audience, and each chapter draws on practical case studies from around the world to illustrate key ideas. Drawing on the author's experience in delivering and analysing low-carbon energy projects in the UK, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and Oceania, this book will be of great relevance to students, scholars and industry specialists with an interest in energy technology, policy and storage.
