by B Viswanathan
Publisher: Indian Institute of Technology 2006
Number of pages: 289
The reasons for the choice of energy sources are many. There is a need to know the options available and how to exploit them, the need to harness some of these sources efficiently and effectively and above all the environmental concerns these energy sources give rise to. The material presented in the form of an e book is mainly meant for higher secondary school students as the audience and for others this may be elementary unless otherwise one wishes to get some basis on this topic.
