Authors: Andreas Poullikkas (Electricity Authority of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus) 
Book Description:
This new book provides an insight to the wide range of electricity generating technologies available today or under development. Also, provides an overview of the energy storage technologies which are expected to play an important role in the future sustainable energy systems. The technologies are presented in an easily digestible form. The book gives a clear, unbiased review and comparison of the different types of power generation technologies available. The book is partly based on lecture notes provided in two different courses for a number of years and is intended as an introductory textbook for courses in the field of engineering, environmental pollution and public health. Also, Introduction to Power Generation Technologies can serve as a reference text for power generation planners, electric utility managers, energy regulators, electricity transmission system operators, consultants, policy makers and economists.
