Energy Beyond Oil Edited by Katherine Blundell and Fraser Armstrong. Combines contributions from leading experts in physics, chemistry, materials science, and biology alongside chapters by key industrialists, politicians, and policy makers; Synthesizes all possible directions in energy research. This book provides a comprehensive non-technical snapshot of the current situation in energy research, and will be particularly useful for researchers and policy-makers wishing to update their knowledge of the status of these technologies. Physics World, March I know more about 'Energy Beyond Oil' because of this book. "Energy Beyond oil examines the issue of energy use and supply, how much energy we consume today, how long our current reserves of energy might last, and what this will mean for the amount of energy our society will have in future. In Beyond Oil, he traces out their likely production futures, with special reference to that of oil, utilizing the same analytic tools developed by his former colleague, the pioneering petroleum-supply authority M. King Hubbert. "The bad news in this book is made bearable by the author's witty, conversational writing style.

Many of the key findings are available on the book’s own web-site: ‘The energy of oil revenues, like the energy of the oil, has inflated. This is an old book, published in , but I wanted to compare the past predictions to todays cheap oil prices. Of course, todays prices are more related to politics (and the pandemic), not actual world demand. The book focus on the technical aspects of the debate/5.   This book focuses on solutions to the energy problem, and not just the problem itself. It describes the major energy-generation technologies currently under development, and provides an authoritative summary of the current status of each one. It stresses the need for a balanced portfolio of alternative energy technologies.5/5(1). "The book presents the reader with an analysis of energy history, an analysis of the status quo and a description of the methanol thesis. It is a book that should appeal to science historians, chemists and chemical engineers alike."/5(23).
