Zero-Carbon Energy Kyoto 2009 [electronic resource] / edited by Takeshi Yao.

By: Yao, Takeshi [editor.]Contributor(s): SpringerLink (Online service)Material type: TextTextLanguage: English Series: Green Energy and Technology: Publisher: Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer, 2010Description: 390p. online resourceContent type: text Media type: computer Carrier type: online resourceISBN: 9784431997795Subject(s): Engineering | Renewable energy sources | Climatic changes | Physical geography | Biotechnology | Engineering | Renewable and Green Energy | Climate Change | Atmospheric Sciences | Environmental Physics | Environmental Engineering/Biotechnology | Renewable and Green EnergyAdditional physical formats: Printed edition:: No titleDDC classification: 621.042 LOC classification: TJ807-830Online resources: Click here to access online In: Springer eBooksSummary: Emissions of CO2 have come to be regarded as the main factor in climate change in recent years, and how to control them has become a pressing issue. The problem cannot simply be labeled a technological one, however, because it is deeply involved with social and economic issues. Since 2008, the Global Center of Excellence (COE) program titled “Energy Science in the Age of Global Warming—Toward a CO2 Zero-Emission Energy System” has been held at Kyoto University, Japan. The program aims to establish an international education and research platform to foster educators, researchers, and policy makers who can develop technologies and propose policies toward a zero-emission society by the year 2100. Setting out a zero-emission technology roadmap, Global COE promotes socioeconomic studies of energy, the study of new technologies for renewable energies, and research in advanced nuclear energy. A compilation of the lectures and presentations from the first symposium of Global COE held at Kyoto University, this book is intended to provide the impetus for the establishment of low carbon energy science to bring about harmony between mankind and the environment.
