Introduction to the Power Industry sets the stage for those entering the electrical energy production and distribution field. It describes the many ways in which electricity can be produced, from burning fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas, to harnessing nuclear energy, and using renewable energy sources such as wind, geothermal, and solar energy. This full-color module explains energy and distribution and transmission and briefly explores the economics involved in energy production and delivery. Finally, the environmental impacts of producing and distributing electrical power, as well as the methods that are employed to mitigate those impacts are addressed.
