Key Features

  • Offers comprehensive coverage of exergy and its applications, along with the most up-to-date information in the area with recent developments
  • Connects exergy with three essential areas in terms of energy, environment and sustainable development
  • Provides a number of illustrative examples, practical applications, and case studies
  • Written in an easy-to-follow style, starting from the basics to advanced systems


This book deals with exergy and its applications to various energy systems and applications as a potential tool for design, analysis and optimization, and its role in minimizing and/or eliminating environmental impacts and providing sustainable development. In this regard, several key topics ranging from the basics of the thermodynamic concepts to advanced exergy analysis techniques in a wide range of applications are covered as outlined in the contents.


Upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students, researchers, scientists and engineers studying or working in mechanical, chemical, energy, environmental, process, and industrial engineering.

Quotes and reviews

"This thorough text examines the concept and its applications, beginning with the basics of thermodynamics in which all energy-related variables are based and continuing into relevant aspects of industrial development, psychrometric processes, heat pump systems, thermal energy storage and drying processes and systems, and renewable energy systems.. This is the second edition, expanded and covering both theoretical and practical aspects."--ProtoView.com, February 2014
