Johns Hall ,

Bravo !

Finally, a book that covers every aspect of renewable energy.
The authors, demonstrate that they want to pass their knowledge
to the reader, the knowledge tests at the end of all chapters stand
as a proof for that.

Worth buying it !

I found here a bunch of information about bio-mass, realtime 3d models,
great alternative ways of creating green-energy, illustrations, videos.
Worth every penny !
