About the book

Recently, the biggest problem in the world is energy and sustainability. Urgent search for alternative energy sources is needed because of the fact of the rapid depletion of fossil fuel resources and global warming. Simultaneous utilization of multiple energy resources greatly enhances the certainty of meeting demands and sustainability. However, sizing and optimization such an energy system is important for the performance and initial investment. The main objective of this book is the definition of energy sources and systems, rules of energy efficiency and energy savings. Furthermore, correct sizing and optimization of an energy system with the minimum cost. This energy dissipation book aims to cover energy systems, energy optimization and utilization for efficiency. Furthermore, the importance of renewable energy needs to be emphases as a solution for sustainability. Another important approach is hybrid energy system utilization; therefore, in order to satisfy the demand, hybrid energy systems could be implemented.

About the editor

Orhan Ekren

Ege University

Dr. Orhan Ekren is Assoc.Prof. in the Solar Energy Institute at Ege University. He received the M.Sc. degree from the Department of Energy Engineering, Izmir Institute of Technology, Turkey, and Ph.D. degree from the Department of Mechanical Engineering(Thermodynamics), Turkey. He has been working at Ege University with the 15 years of work experience. He studied as a Postdoc researcher in Southern Illinois University, USA as well. His main research interests are energy efficiency, energy saving, capacity modulation on refrigeration and HVAC&R systems, renewable heating and cooling, magnetic cooling, integration of renewable energy systems into buildings, optimum sizing of hybrid renewable energy sources(wind/solar etc.), also sustainability in energy and buildings. Dr. Ekren has authored and co-authored 25 international journal papers, 25 international conference papers, 5 books and book chapters and also 2 utility models on efficient operation of HVAC&R systems. Therefore, system design and experimental tests and demo studies are in my research scope. He has currently involved several research project funded by national research council (TUBITAK) and EC-FP7 project (ECOSHOPPING).

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Gordan Tot

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
