The concept of sustainable development was first introduced by the Brundtland Commission almost 20 years ago and has received increased attention during the past decade. It is now an essential part of any energy activities. This is a research-based textbook which can be used by senior undergraduate students, graduate students, engineers, practitioners, scientists, researchers in the area of sustainable energy systems and aimed to address some key pillars: better efficiency, better cost effectiveness, better use of energy resources, better environment, better energy security, and better sustainable development. It also includes some cutting-edge topics, such hydrogen and fuel cells, renewable, clean combustion technologies, CO2 abatement technologies, and some potential tools (exergy, constructal theory, etc.) for design, analysis and performance improvement.(2010) (as already mentioned) by thermo-catalytic cracking using heat recovered from the exhaust gases. Moreover, it is assumed that the vehicle engine operates with hydrogen delivered at the same parameters as for the original Ford design specifications. 220.127.116.11 ... Therefore, hydrogen production efficiency from natural gas is 78% while that of gasoline from crude oil is 85%. Also, the case ofanbsp;...
