Wind energy systems draw on a wide range of disciplines. Any prospective user will feel large gaps in his knowledge, areas where he does not even know what the question is. This book is written to help people identify the proper question to ask.
by Ralph Nansen - Ocean Press
The contents of this book should be of interest to the non technical reader. Nansen presents the rationale for solar power satellites in an understandable form devoid of the usual technical jargon to make the subject accessible to the public.
