Capehart (industrial and systems engineering emeritus, U. of Florida) and his co-authors, both academics in industrial engineering, continue the tradition set by previous editions to describe the most critical areas of effective energy cost-cutting. In doing so they have fully updated their coverage of the energy audit process, understanding energy bills, economic analysis and life cycle costing. They have also updated their chapters on lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, boilers, steam distribution systems, control systems and computers, energy systems maintenance, insulation, process energy, renewable energy sources, water management, distributed generation, web-based building automation controls and energy information systems, and green buildings. The result is a valuable professional reference that also works as a classroom text. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
