Fifteen interdisciplinary case studies on the application of technology in the energy and environment sectors include applications of solar, wind, fuel cell, nuclear, and other coal combustion and emission control technologies. The case studies reveal the interrelationships among technical and non-technical factors, and demonstrate that the successful application of new technologies requires the synthesis of technical, economic, political, environmental, and social aspects.
