Note Editore

Energy Efficiency: Concepts and Calculations is the first book of its kind to provide an applied, systems oriented description of energy intensity and efficiency in modern economies across the entire energy chain. With an emphasis on analysis, specifically energy flow analysis, lifecycle energy accounting, economic analysis, technology evaluation, and policies/strategies for adopting high energy efficiency standards, the book provides a comprehensive understanding of the concepts, tools and methodologies for studying and modeling macro-level energy flows through, and within, key economic sectors (electric power, industrial, commercial, residential and transportation).

Providing a technical discussion of the application of common methodologies (e.g. cost-benefit analysis and lifecycle assessment), each chapter contains figures, charts and examples from each sector, including the policies that have been put in place to promote and incentivize the adoption of energy efficient technologies.

  • Contains models and tools to analyze each stage at the macro-level by tracking energy consumption and how the resulting data might change energy use
  • Includes accessible references and a glossary of common terms at the end of each chapter
  • Provides diagnostic figures, tables and schematics within the context of local, regional and national energy consumption and utilization


1. Introductory concepts 2. Dealing with energy units, measures, and statistics 3. Primary energy trends 4. Energy-flow analyses and efficiency indicators 5. Electric power sector energy efficiency 6. Industrial sector energy efficiency 7. Transportation sector energy efficiency 8. Residential and commercial sector energy efficiency 9. Policy instruments to foster energy efficiency


Daniel M. Martínez received his PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Rochester and currently is an assistant professor of environmental science and policy at the University of Southern Maine. His research and teaching interests span the fields of molecular science, energy sustainability, and STEM education. Since joining USM, he has developed numerous projects about energy, development and the environment, with a focus on energy analysis, building energy systems, and life cycle costing.
Ben W. Ebenhack began his career working for a multinational petroleum company in district operations, corporate research, and international headquarters. Upon leaving the oil patch, he founded the AHEAD Energy Corporation, a public charity that helps developing countries in their energy transitions. Currently an associate chair of petroleum engineering at his alma mater, Marietta College, he is now guiding future petroleum engineers through a variety of subjects, ranging from working in the American shale plays to corporate social responsibility practices of major international energy companies.
Travis P. Wagner received his PhD in public policy from the George Washington University with a focus on environmental and natural resource policy. He currently is a professor of environmental policy at the University of Southern Maine. His research and teaching interests focus on innovative policy approaches to fostering sustainable materials management. In addition to energy, his recent research efforts have been on the assessment of municipal strategies to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics.
