A new, expanded 3rd Edition of Energy for Keeps is now available with its new subtitle: Energy for Keeps: Creating Clean Electricity from Renewable Resources. Earlier editions of Energy for Keeps won IREC’s 2004 Innovation Award and a 2006 Green Power Leadership Award.
With clear and balanced language, a trio of authors and numerous industry experts provide up-to-date info on green energy sources, including biomass, geothermal, hydropower, ocean energy, and solar and wind power. And in order to present a complete picture of our current situation, they also explain the production of electricity from hydrogen, fossil fuels, and nuclear fuels. Other chapters include energy efficiency and management strategies, environmental conservation, and our energy history.
Energy for Keeps, Expanded 3rd Edition is an excellent tool for the classroom as a supplemental text for students of science and social studies (6th grade and up). It’s also perfect for non-technical staff in the energy industry. The publication is known for its especially engaging illustrations (over 90 of them) by engineer/artist Will Suckow. This new addition also includes 50 photos.
