title = {Renewable energy: Sources for fuels and electricity}, author = {Johansson, T.B. and Kelly, H. and Reddy, A.K.N. and Williams, R.H.}, abstractNote = {This book assesses the technical and economic prospects for making fuels and electricity from renewable energy sources. Renewable Energy System Design is a must-have resource that provides engineers and students with a comprehensive yet practical guide to the characteristics, principles of operation, and power potential of the most prevalent renewable energy systems.

Key Findings • The installed global renewable electricity capacity nearly doubled between and , although renewable energy is a relatively small portion of total energy supply both globally and in the United States. • Renewable electricity represented nearly 13% of total installed capacity and more than 12% of total electric generation in the United States in   The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) produces comprehensive, reliable data on renewable energy capacity and use worldwide. Renewable Energy Statistics provides data sets on power-generation capacity for , actual power generation for and renewable energy balances for over countries and areas for Data was obtained from a variety of sources.

Biomass provides about 14% of the world's energy, about 25 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (mboe/day) (=55EJ). It is the most important (35%) source of energy in developing countries but also plays a significant role in a number of industrial countries, eg the USA obtains 4% (1½ mboe/day) of its energy from biomass, and Sweden about 14%; both countries have plans to . • Commercial and Non commercial energy • Renewable and Non-Renewable energy • Conventional and Non-conventional energy Primary and Secondary Energy Primary energy sources are those that are either found or stored in nature. Common primary energy sources are coal, oil, natural gas, and biomass (such as wood). Other primary energy Fig
