Geothermal Energy Systems by Ernst Huenges
Presenting boundary conditions for the economic and environmental utilization of geothermal technology, this is the first book to provide basic knowledge on the topic in such detail. The editor is the coordinator of the European Geothermic Research Initiative, while the authors are experts for the various geological situations in Europe with high temperature reservoirs in shallow and deep horizons. With its perspectives for R&D in geothermic technology concluding each chapter, this ready reference will be of great value to scientists and decision-makers in research and politics, as well as those giving courses in petroleum engineering, for example.
"It can be said that this book achieves his goal to be a reference of great value to scientists and decision-makers in research and politics, as well as those giving courses in petroleum engineering, for example. It provides a good overview on the state of the art of all the aspects, which need to be considered, when installing an Enhanced Geothermal Systems Plant. It should not be missed in the bookshelf's of people dealing with geothermal use." (Corrosion News, January 2011)ISBN: 9783527408313

Comment on Geothermal Energy Systems by Ernst Huenges
Energy for a Sustainable World by Vincenzo Balzani
An excellent source of information and a must-read for non-specialists, this book accurately surveys the energy issue from a broad scientific perspective while considering the alternatives from an environmental, economic, and social viewpoint.
Mine-field by Paul Cleary
In Mine-Field, Paul Cleary counts the true human and economic costs of Australia's short-term mineral addiction.
Wicked Environmental Problems by Peter J. Balint
Examines past experience and future directions in the management of so-called 'wicked' environmental problems - those characterized by large-scale, long-term policy dilemmas and contentious political stalemates. This title offers fresh approaches for managing environmental conflicts and shows how managers could apply these approaches.
Global Forest by Diana Beresford Kroeger» View more books like these...
Trees provide shelter, medicine and food. They are part of our imaginations, folklore, ecosystems and our lives. From hedgerows that contain an entire chain of life to trees that can breathe, heal, nurture and even communicate, this title features essays that show us the significance of the global forest.

Research activities of Ernst Huenges aim at providing an environmentally benign and sustainable geothermal energy and subsurface storage of heat and cold. In his focus the supply of geothermal energy should become site-independent in the long-term and tailored according to demand and thus supplementing, at the same time, other renewable energy sources. This requires interdisciplinary approaches and synergies seen in connection with a series of developing fields of research involving the editor's experimental expertise on processes in deep reservoirs.
