Choice Review

This collection of 1985 conference papers on industrial energy technology was written by 25 authors who are experts from 17 companies implementing this technology across a widely divergent group of industries. Cogeneration is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat (usually steam) from one fuel. With the current crises over nuclear power, acid rain, and electric rate shock, many industrial users are actively looking for alternatives. This book can be favorably compared to Scott A. Spiewak's Cogeneration and Small Power Production Manual (CH, Feb '87). Chapters include Cogeneration Trends and Prospects; Economic and Financial Considerations; Cogeneration Systems/Technologies; Industrial Cogeneration Case Studies; and Cogeneration and Utilities. Many drawings, tables, charts, equations, and graphs are included. Most papers include an introduction, a summary, and a bibliography. Especially useful are the case studies that highlight the number of technical, legal, and economic choices that must be made after the initial choice of opting for a cogeneration system. Recommended for any serious student of energy systems.-J.C. Comer, Northern Illinois University
