Paperback: $16.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
We can all agree that energy needs to be made better. But how can we achieve the greatest impact with the limited resources at hand? While many look to solar and wind to revolutionize our energy... More > economy, this focus ignores the other 99% of our primary energy supply, which is too vast to meaningfully offset in the near to medium-term. Any realistic solution requires getting more out of what we've got. Fortunately, there are low-cost, high-return technologies available today that can make our existing energy systems cleaner, safer, cheaper and more reliable. Given the scale of existing infrastructure, these technologies offer massive "bang for the buck". Many are hidden in plain sight and just need the right injection of capital or entrepreneurial leadership to unleash their potential.
