In recent years our usage and understanding of different types of energy has grown at a tremendous rate. The editor-in-chief, Cutler Cleveland, and his international team have brought together some 400 authors to produce Encyclopedia of Energy. This highly topical reference draws together all aspects of energy, covering a wealth of areas throughout the natural, social and engineering sciences.

This work provides easily accessible information about all aspects of energy, written by leading international authorities. It is indispensable for academics, researchers, professionals and students, and a valuable resource for policymakers, energy and environmental consultants and those working in business corporations and non-governmental organizations whose activities relate to energy and the environment.
