            Engineering Transition: Building a Sustainable Future examines new strategies emerging in response to the mega-issues of global climate change, decline in world oil supply, scarcity of key industrial minerals, and local environmental constraints. These issues pose challenges for ...organizations, businesses, and communities, and engineers will need to begin developing ideas and projects to implement the transition of engineered systems. This work presents a methodology for shifting away from unsustainable activities. Teaching the Transition Engineering approach and methodology is the focus of the text, and the concept is presented in a way that engineers can begin applying it in their work.

            The Energy-Freedom Home: how to wipe out electricity and gas bills in nine steps
             

            The Energy-Freedom Home: how to wipe out electricity and gas bills in nine steps (EPUB ebook)

            By Zero Emissions, Beyond

            The average Australian household spends over $2,000 a year on gas and electricity bills. Now, not only can you reduce those bills, but you can even wipe them out, while making your home more comfortable. Paying for energy is the largest running cost that most home-owners are b...urdened with. And that's no surprise - we use energy to heat our water, refrigerate our food and drink, run our heaters and air conditioners, light our homes at night, cook our meals, run our TVs, and charge our computers. There are simple, practical ways to reduce our demand for energy and to change where we get it from. There is already a quiet revolution under way as renewable energy and energy efficiency transform the way we generate and use electricity and gas. Over 1.4 million households in Australia now have rooftop solar - and, as a result, the costs of solar energy have plummeted, making it more accessible for the average home-owner. Yet there is much more that can be done to reduce our reliance on the electricity grid, and some significant improvements that can be made with relatively little effort. The Energy-Freedom Home explains nine steps that can be taken - in any order - to become more energy efficient: replace old lights with LEDs stop draughts improve insulation upgrade windows use energy-efficient appliances install reverse-cycle systems use solar or heat-pump systems to heat your water monitor and control your energy use switch to solar. Containing detailed, easy-to-follow descriptions of practical problems and solutions, plus over 80 colour photographs and diagrams, The Energy-Freedom Home is the perfect guide to help home-owners liberate themselves from costly and non-renewable sources of energy. PRAISE FOR BEYOND ZERO EMISSIONS 'According to BZE, the average Australian household spends some $2400 a year on gas and electricity bills. The book explains the steps which can be taken, in any order, to reduce energy bills to almost zero ... Very t
