SC Reviewer: This book from MIT is for the advanced renewable energy enthusiast, and goes into great detail on aspects of energy such as: resource estimation, economic models, and methods of thermodynamic analysis.

Some renewable energy classes use this as a textbook, and it’s easy to see why. The quality of the information, logical structure, and formulaic explanations are all top notch.

We would recommend that the reader have a STEM background in order to fully appreciate the information in this book.
