DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tf6grj/functional) has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Functional materials for sustainable energy applications" to their offering.
Global demand for low cost, efficient and sustainable energy production is ever increasing. Driven by recent discoveries and innovation in the science and technology of materials, applications based on functional materials are becoming increasingly important.
Functional Materials for Sustainable Energy Applications provides an essential guide to the development and application of these materials in sustainable energy production. Part one reviews functional materials for solar power. Part two focuses on functional materials for hydrogen production and storage. Functional materials for fuel cells are the explored in part three. Part four considers functional materials for demand reduction and energy storage, before the book concludes in part five with an investigation into computer simulation studies of functional materials.
