Sustainable Mobility: Renewable Energies for Powering Fuel Cell Vehicles

By Raphael Edinger; Sanjay Kaul | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Writing a book on renewable energies and transport technologies is an effort that is guided by rapid technological changes and a wealth of information that has to be scrutinized for accuracy and abstracted from political tendencies. We hope that this volume may serve as a practical guide to enter the world of renewable resources for mobility.

We wish to thank Dr. Gerhard Isenberg, DaimlerChysler AG, who provided valuable input as well as crucial questions on the utility of non-fossil resources. Dr. Isenberg's abundant knowledge and impressive data collection both in his mind and in his manuscripts guided the collection of facts and creation of illustrating figures presented in this work. His philosophy and belief in the necessity of renewable resources laid the foundations of the principle ideas of this book.

Dr. Klaus Becker, Hohenheim University, introduced us to the subject of biofuels from eroded soils, a viable path for future mobility in developing countries. Mr. Otmar Braune, BUND—Friends of the Earth, Germany, provided helpful advice and insight to the role of non-profit environmental organizations as well as solar energy and renewable resources for fuel production.

I would like to express my gratitude to my parents Bobji and Jaya and my brothers Rakesh and Sandeep for their love and support at every stage of my life. Without their dedicated attention, I would not have been able to write this book.

To my wife, Dr. Sharda Kaul, my grateful acknowledgement of her love and devotion through the good times and bad. To my beautiful daughter Iha, and my dynamic son Hemang, I owe more than words can express. They are gentle reminders of what is truly meaningful in my life. And last, but not the least, to my teachers, because of whom this book has been made possible.

S.K.
