About the book

Renewable energy is playing an important role in today’s energy system. Moreover, the storage of renewable energy is becoming a very critical issue. This book aims to present a review of the latest advances in renewable energy resources, devices, and technologies. The different energy resources including solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy, water energy, and hydro energy resources will be presented as well as the different devices used for collecting renewable energy. Storage systems used for storing renewable energy will be discussed including compressed air storage systems, flywheel storage systems, electrochemical storage systems, and chemical storage systems, as well as different types of batteries used for collecting renewable energy. We hope to cover new topics and issues related to renewable energy, new regulations of renewable energy for different countries, and the simulation related to energy storage systems and devices. The goal of this book is to include also experimental work related to renewable energy.

About the editor

Ahmed Nahhas

Umm al-Qura University

Ahmed M. Nahhas received his Master’s degree in Computer Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1996 and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (Electronics) from the University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA in 2001. Professor Nahhas’s research has been centered on developing new photonic and electronic devices at micro and nano-scales involving various functional materials such as rare-earth-doped oxides, wideband gap semiconductors, and nanostructured materials. Prof. Nahhas’s research investigates epitaxial growth and fabrication of ZnO and GaN optical devices. Fabrication of MSM photo-detectors has been developed on a macro-scale area of wafer surface using a directed self-organization method and has been investigated as an interaction medium in optical, electrical, chemical, and biological domains. Surface-Plasmon phenomena occurring in structures are of particular interest since many novel properties can be derived from those and can be incorporated into an on-chip configuration for interaction. Professor Nahhas has participated in reviewing several academic articles and dissertations in the area of electrical, electronics, communications, control engineering, and e-learning. He is an official reviewer of journals such as the American Journal of Nanomaterials—USA, many International conferences, and holds the Associate Professor position at several Saudi Universities. Professor Nahhas served in many prestigious leading positions including Dean of the College of Engineering at Al-Lith, head of the Department, Vice Dean at Umm Al Qura University, Makkah. Currently, he works at the College of Engineering and Islamic Architecture, Umm Al Qura University, Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
