The Renewable Energy Handbook

A Guide to Rural Energy Independence,
Off-grid and Sustainable Living

By William H. Kemp

The Renewable Energy Handbook by William H. Kemp

As oil prices continue to rise, many people are starting to think about how to unhook from the electricity grid. The Renewable Energy Handbook focuses completely on off-grid, sustainable living and rural energy independence.

Author/engineer William H. Kemp, who is a leading expert in small- and mid-scale renewable energy technologies, designed and built his own off-grid home. The result is a house that has all the standard “middle-class” creature comforts while using less than one-fifth the total fossil-fuel energy of the average North American house.

The Renewable Energy Handbook focuses on the unique requirements of off-grid living and contains chapters on energy conservation; heating and cooling; backup power; domestic water heating; wireless communications; photovoltaic, wind, and microhydro energy generation; battery selection; and inverters.

Since its release, The Renewable Energy Handbook has been a top-selling technology book and is recognized as the best book in its field.

The book features hundreds of illustrations, line drawings, photographs, and appendices.
