November author Nader Anani let us know the reasons why he felt it was so important to write his book, Renewable Energy Technologies and Resources:
My main research and teaching area have always been revolving around power electronics. However, with rising concerns about greenhouse emissions and their harmful emissions on the environment, I became interested in Renewable Energy as a prime vehicle to protect our planet Earth. Consequently, I proposed, designed and delivered a module on Renewable energy for my Electrical Engineering students. The main difficulty I met while designing the module was the lack a single textbook that covers the subject of renewables with the appropriate spread and depth. This is coupled with excellent feedback from my students about my lecture notes prompted me to write the book.
Currently, my research is focused on improving modelling and efficiency of photovoltaic systems.
