environmental and ecological impact of our current network of power plants and distribution lines and offers solutions on what all Americans can do to reduce our dependency on an increasingly erratic and inefficient energy creation and distribution system that produces more CO2 emissions than any other sector, including automotive transportation.
The book explains the problems, conditions, and possible solutions to the power grid issue. By tackling a diverse list of issues impacting the present and future of energy creation—from the challenges of replacing the energy footprint of the 103 active nuclear sites across the country scheduled for decommissioning in the next 10 years, to the exponentially increasing power demands of mission critical data centers, to simple conservation measures—Bowman paints a picture of the rapidly changing energy demands of the 21st century and offers a guide for focusing on the issues and making strategic decisions that align with long-term goals and interests. Copies of the book can be purchased at www.amazon.com for $24.50 plus tax and shipping.
