Solar is a subject that increasingly interests, yet one about which competent independent advice is difficult to obtain. Collyn Rivers totally revised new edition of his earlier and separate caravan and motorhome editions of Solar That Really Works! fills a previously all but unexplored need. In one tightly written book, Collyn covers all that is needed to design and install solar electrical systems in anything from a tiny caravan or campervan to a large fishing lodge. Along the way it takes in the specialised needs of big converted coaches and the increasingly accepted fifth-wheeler caravans. Solar That Really Works! covers just what can and cannot realistically be run from a typical solar installation. It shows how to calculate the energy required, shows simple ways of finding out the most probable solar energy available anywhere and anytime in Australia and New Zealand. It shows also how much solar panels really do produce. The book also includes full and often illustrated instructions on how to install systems and their various components. As with Collyn's books generally, the writer leaves nothing that the reader is expected to take on trust. He not only explains, in simple English, the 'how' of things, he also explains the 'whys'. Here, for the first time for many people (including equipment vendors) is why a solar panel typically produces only 70% of what it says on the box. And why this one especially catches out even science teachers. Solar That Really Works! also introduces the author's totally new approach to choosing the correct cable size without the need for often misleading and complex wire tables.

This work reported in three volumes refers to the German portion of task sharing activities within the International IEA-Project to explore the possibilities of solar thermal energy. The principal objective of the International Small Solar Power System (SSPS) Project in Almeria, Spain, was to examine in detail the feasibility and operability of solar thermal plants using solar irradiation for the generation of electric power. Since 1985 when this goal was reached the facilities are and will be used as platforms for experiments on optimized operations, improvements of subsystems and components, utilizations of heat for operations other than generating electricity, especially for endothermic reactions within chemical processes. The present volumes report on results of German studies dealing with these topics during 1985 and 1986. The temperature regime discussed herein ranges from 600AC well beyond 1000AC.

Preventing climate change need not bankrupt the world. Decarbonizing the economy will not only halt global warming, but also improve the lifestyles of all the world's people. The dynamics of industry are about to undergo a radical change. Investment is set to flow to an entirely new range of solutions that offer the world clean and reliable power and energy. The solutions to the world's most serious problems exist now. In The Whole World's Watching the authors explain how money can be channeled into the technology that will preserve the lifestyles we currently enjoy and create a new era of economic growth. This is a book that proposes real, concrete solutions. Environmentalists and politicians will not stop climate change from occurring: industry will and it will happpen a lot sooner than we think. Global warming is real and not a problem that will disappear on its own. This book explains why it is now time to mobilize the world's financial markets to work for the good of mankind. The money to finance the changes necessary to prevent climatic mutation should come from Wall Street, instead of Washington or Berlin. In order to prevent Helsinki from becoming a summer holiday destination, the world will have to ante up $500 billion a year. It is a problem that will impact on a whole range of industries and affect the lives of everyone in the industrial world. A whole new breed of investment brokers will be created and these "green bankers" will inherit the earth.

This book begins with a very readable survey "The Sun Today" by J.-C. Pecker. It is followed by thorough reviews from leading experts covering theory and observations. The focus shifts from the solar core, studied via neutrino emissions and helioseismology, through the interface regions where it is believed the large-scale magnetic fields are generated, to the corona, where most of the high temperature phenomena characteristic of this region may be studied directly. As energetic particles play such a vigorous role in this part of the sun, a separate session was devoted to their transport and storage in the corona.
