About the Author
Mark Z. Jacobson is a professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program at Stanford University. He has published six books and over 175 peer-reviewed papers. His work forms the scientific basis of the Green New Deal and many laws and commitments for cities, states, and countries to transition to 100% renewable electricity and heat generation. He received the 2018 Judi Friedman Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 2019, was selected as 'one of the world's 100 most influential people in climate policy' by Apolitical. He has served on an advisory committee to the U.S. Secretary of Energy, appeared in a TED talk, appeared on the David Letterman Show, and co-founded The Solutions Project.
'A great book! Finally a textbook is available that clearly explains all aspects of a full supply of renewable energy. It shows why problems of air pollution and global warming can be solved by using renewable energies. It explains very clearly all aspects of a secure and climate-friendly full supply of renewable energies using comprehensive scientific facts and clear practical examples. It should be used as a standard textbook in all worldwide energy economics lectures worldwide! It is highly relevant not only for students but for all those interested in energy economics in times of unsolved challenges caused by climate change and pollution. A book that everyone should have read!' Professor Claudia Kemfert, German Institute for Economic Research
'Mark Jacobson's new book, 100% Clean, Renewable Energy and Storage for Everything, provides the most authoritative look yet at the future of energy beyond fossil fuels. The text is clearly written, authoritative, and thoroughly referenced. This will make a great text book for courses on energy and climate change, but is also a must read for all of us interested in the transition to a renewable future.' Robert W. Howarth, Cornell University, New York
'The world's major crises need radical and comprehensive solutions, with 100% clean renewable energy systems at the core of any health, climate, peace or prosperity plan. Marc Z. Jacobsen shows in a brilliant and scientifically profound way why such a worldwide transformation is necessary and how it can be realized. A powerful work that leaves no more excuses for political inaction.' Hans-Josef Fell, Former German Parliamentarian and founder of German solar tariffs
'Professor Jacobson's work on the possibilities for renewable energy have opened eyes around the globe. Where people once saw barriers, increasingly they see possibilities and openings, and this book consolidates that new understanding.' Bill McKibben, Middlebury College, Vermont
'Engineering professors of the world: are you teaching a course on climate change, or planning one? If you are, this is the textbook you should be adopting. Civil, mechanical, electrical, materials, chemical engineering aspects of the energy transition are exhaustively addressed. And this book has soul: today's engineering student feels the need to do something about climate change, and this book empowers them.' Anthony R. Ingraffea, Cornell University, New York
'Mark Jacobson shines a bright light illuminating the path forward, painstakingly detailing - with numbers and facts - how we can decarbonize our energy infrastructure, take action on climate, create a cleaner environment and sustain a healthy, green economy. At a time when there is far too much doom and gloom over our prospects for averting climate catastrophe, read this book, take action and be part of the battle to preserve a healthy, livable planet.' Michael E. Mann, Penn State University
