Part of the Green Energy and Technology book series (GREEN)


The exploitation of energy sources and the entire pathway of energy vectors in time and space have a main purpose: to meet the needs of human beings in order to make their lives more comfortable, more productive and socially active. Human beings do not directly need any energy sources or vectors additional to food; they have concrete and easily identifiable needs, and energy is aimed at meeting these needs.
