The Power of Design: Product Innovation in Sustainable Energy Technologiesby Angele Reinders
Synopses & Reviews
The Power of Design offers an introduction and a practical guide to product innovation, integrating the key topics that are necessary for the design of sustainable and energy-efficient products using sustainable energy technologies.
Product innovation in sustainable energy technologies is an interdisciplinary field. In response to its growing importance and the need for an integrated view on the development of solutions, this text addresses the functional principles of various energy technologies next to the latest design processes and innovation methods.
From the perspective of product applications, the book provides clear explanations of technologies that are significant for product integration, such as batteries, photovoltaic solar energy, fuel cells, small wind turbines, human power, energy saving lighting, thermal energy technologies in buildings, and piezoelectric energy conversions. The design processes and innovation methods presented in this book include various approaches ranging from technical, societal and creative methods that can be applied in different stages of the design process.
Other features include:
The Power of Design provides a comprehensive and visually-appealing opening into the subject for third and fourth year students, postgraduates, and professionals in the areas of energy, environment, product design and engineering.
Unique in linking sustainable energy technologies with innovation and product design, this book offers clear explanation of both and case studies enabling readers to understand and design energy-efficient products in several different markets.
The book integrates the subject areas that are necessary for the design of sustainable and energy-efficient products based on sustainable energy technologies. The theory provided is illustrated by cases of design projects and concepts in practice. With the book's methodological approach, the reader is able to apply the information and examples in their research projects or product design processes.
This book fills a void in existing literature at the intersection of innovation processes, sustainable energy technologies, energy demand reduction, product development, and user behaviour, which requires an integrated view on the development of sustainable energy solutions. As such, the editors offer a unique publication in "product innovation in sustainable energy technologies and energy-efficiency" that corresponds to the growing interest in the field.
This book integrates the subject areas that are necessary for the design of sustainable and energy-efficient products based on sustainable energy technologies. With the book's methodological approach, readers will be able to apply the information and examples in their research projects or product design processes. Exploring the challenges at the crossroads of energy and product design and energy transition, this book fills a void in existing literature at the intersection of innovation processes, sustainable energy technologies, energy demand reduction, product development, and user behavior.
