by Roy L. Nersesian


As concerns over rising energy prices and potential shortages continue to grow, this comprehensive handbook provides a detailed analysis of the past, present, and future of all the principle energy sources - biomass, coal, oil, natural gas, hydro and nuclear power - as well as sustainable sources, especially fuel cell technology

Roy L. Nersesian has spent most of his professional career observing the energy industry as part of his involvement in energy . Each chapter addresses a particular energy source (coal, oil, electricity, alternative, gas).

Roy L. Nersesian has spent most of his professional career observing the energy industry as part of his involvement in energy transportation. He is an adjunct professor at Columbia University's Center for Energy, Marine Transportation and public policy in the School of International and Public Affairs, and a professor at the Leon hess School of Business at Monmouth University. He brings a fresh perspective to the energy business--where it was and where it is heading. Each presents how energy is extracted, important regulations, history, efficiency, how it relates to the environment.

The strike price is USD 75/MWh and the premium is USD 5/MWh. In July, Stebbins estimated the average heating oil requirement for the season to be 1,200 gallons per customer based on normal weather conditions and purchased a sufficient number of heating oil futures contracts with different delivery dates throughout the winter to fulfill the estimated demand.

As an engineer, I thought I knew a fair amount about energy sources, but found a wealth of information written in a very readable way. Each chapter addresses a particular energy source (coal, oil, electricity, alternative, gas). Each presents how energy is extracted, important regulations, history, efficiency, how it relates to the environment. I've never read a whole text book before, but enjoyed reading it from cover to cover on my kindle, instead of lugging such a large book around on trips. Tables and figures were easy to read by rotating the screen. This really filled in the gaps of my understand and provided information I wouldn't have thought to even google.

The book is both a history of the main energy sources used globally, and of the prospects for energy generation going forward into this new century. So we get a walkthrough of how OPEC arose, and how the 1973 Yom Kippur war triggered an oil crisis that gave OPEC much power. But after 1979, this diminished for some 20 years.

Other energy sources are studied. Especially coal, which tends to be more evenly distributed around the world than oil. Perhaps more to the point, US and China have ample supplies. Which means that coal is unlikely to diminish in importance.

The most intriguing question posed in the book is the Hubbert hypothesis. Otherwise called the Peak Oil idea. Namely that global oil production has peaked, or will peak soon. To be followed by a gradual but relentless decline. Naturally a disquieting prospect. Especially since China and India (as well as other developing natioons) want to continue to modernise, and will presumably need more oil. Read this part of the book carefully.
