Power and Energy Systems

Engineering Economics

EE-Cover+Contents

Background and Objective
Power and Energy industry is a highly capital intensive business field. Furthermore there is a very close interlinkage between technologies and economics that requires engineers and economists to have a common understanding of project evaluation approaches and methodologies. The book’s overall objective is to transfer practical guidance and assistance to consultants, engineers, economists and students for a proper techno-economic evaluation of Power and Energy Systems’ projects.

Contents
The book provides a comprehensive but concise coverage of engineering economics required for techno-economic evaluation of investments in power and energy system projects. The book is neither a scientific paper nor literature research. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on transferring practical know-how rather than pure theoretical knowledge. This is also demonstrated in numerous examples derived from experience of respective projects.

Target Audience
Target audience of the book are primarily international consultants, staff members of engineering companies, utility personnel, energy economists and lawyers, as well as employees of government agencies entrusted with regulating the energy and utility sector and, finally, students in related fields of engineering and economics.

Author’s note: I am a non-native English speaker, however, I wrote the book directly in English because in my opinion this is the most proper language for the field of economics among others as most techno-economic terms are available in English only. I ask native English speakers for their understanding for any linguistic shortcomings

Comments and recommendations for improvements from readers are highly appreciated and will be thankfully considered in forthcoming editions of this book.
