Ray Publishing’s new book, Composites in Alternative Energy: A design and application guide, is now available through the NetComposites online store.

This special-interest book is the fifth in a series of publications about the use of composite materials in targeted market areas — specifically, automotive, infrastructure/civil engineering, offshore oil platforms and emission control strategies. Composites in Alternative Energy takes an in-depth view of the alternative energy market, which market sectors are using composites in the greatest quantities, and the areas that are likely to grow the fastest. Interviews with part manufacturers allow readers to understand materials and processes for selected specific parts.

Four sections discuss wind turbine components (blades, nacelles and towers); fuel cells (moulded bi-polar plates); alternative fuel storage strategies (high-pressure cylinders and tanks); and other uses of composites, including marine power turbines, flywheels, and composites in grid elements like transmission lines and utility poles. Also included are an in-depth overview, an introduction to composite materials and resources for finding more information: a bibliography, lists of contact and organizations and a glossary.
