From the reviews:
"This translation of a book originally published in German discusses and analyzes the basics of solar, wind, photovoltaic, geothermal, and water-based energy (including ocean energy). ... this well-illustrated work is full of valuable information. ... Many tables, charts, and drawings are included. Authors Kaltschmit, Streicher, and Wiese are listed in the book as editors; they have compiled a large amount of nearly current technical literature in a well-organized format. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (J. C. Comer, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (6), 2008)
