The Power of Renewables: Opportunities and Challenges for China and the United States. A brand new book from the National Academies of Science that tries to put into perspective the brewing rivalry between the U.S. and China on renewable energy.
The entire matter is being treated as a zero-sum game, a battle of “our green vs. their green.” The book chooses to take the matter from a science and engineering perspective rather than a political one, and is thus a much welcome addition to the discussion.
The book is available for free in its pre-publication draft form in return for a very quick registration. Make sure you note that you are a “private citizen” in the drop-down on the registration page.
