About the book

At present days the expeditious growth of technology and the global population leads to the intemperance of natural gas and fossil fuels. The adequate solution to this issue is energy conversion. Renewable energy resources such as hydropower, wind, tribo, geothermal are most sustainable. In most cases, the wasted energy in day-to-day living is effectively converted into a consumable form of energy. For example, scavenging electrical energy from small-scale physical change with the help of a triboelectric nanogenerator. A greater number of techniques facilitate energy conversion in both the macro and nano units. Hydroelectric, geothermal, electrochemical conversion is widely used energy conversion methods. Meanwhile piezoelectric, triboelectric are blooming techniques in nano energy conversion. This book will intend to provide an overview of existing energy conversion techniques and prominently focus on the development of nano energy conversion to overcome small-scale energy exhaustion. Also features the importance of energy conversion and energy storage systems
