New ASCE Publication Applies Renewable Energy Technologies to Existing Water Infrastructure
Reston, Va. – Renewable energy sources are sustainable sources of energy that don’t run out, like solar, wind, water, tides, geothermal. Using effective energy policy and rulemaking, the US has successfully started incorporating renewables within statewide energy mixes. The latest American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) publication, Renewable Energy Technologies and Water Infrastructure, builds on this effort, providing practical applications and the latest developments surrounding the integration of renewable energy into existing water infrastructure.
The authors provide an in-depth look at policy, regulation, and the development and application of renewable energy technologies to ensure effective operation of water infrastructure into the future. Detailed topics covered in this book include renewable energy policy and regulatory requirements; micro-hydro power; biofuels; biogas-to-energy CHP; fuel cells for clean water; sustainable desalination; geothermal energy; solar and wind energy toward resilient water infrastructure; application of renewables for monitoring water quality; and proven renewable energy applications to water infrastructure.
Academics, scientists, engineers, policy makers, and other practitioners working on water infrastructure and the applications of current sustainability and resilience needs with respect to the water-energy nexus will find this publication a valuable resource.
