Environmental Assessment of Renewable Energy Conversion Technologies provides state-of-the-art coverage in both non-fossil energy conversion and storage techniques, as well as in their environmental assessment. This includes the goal and scope, the analysis boundaries, the inventory and the impact assessment employed for the evaluation of these applications, as well as the environmental footprint of the technologies. The book compiles information currently available only in different sources concerning the environmental assessment of sustainable energy technologies, allowing for the comparative assessments of different technologies, given specific boundary conditions such as the renewable potential and other specific features of the discussed technologies. Environmental Assessment of Renewable Energy Conversion Technologies offers readers a comprehensive overview of the entire energy supply chain, namely from production to storage, by allowing the consideration of different production and storage combinations, based on their environmental assessment. Provides an overview of the environmental assessment process of renewable energy conversion and storage technologiesIncludes state-of-the-art approaches and techniques for the comprehensive environmental assessment of individual sustainable energy conversion and storage technologies and their applicationsFeatures comparative assessments of different technologies, given specific boundary conditions such as the renewable potential and other specific features of the discussed technologies INDICE: Part A: Introduction 1.
