Today there exists an array of options for technologies to generate electrical power (see Figure 1-3). Each technology has its own characteristics and depends upon unique supply chains to manufacture the necessary capital equipment and/or provide the fuel for the prime mover. Just over the last decade the United States, as well as much of the rest of the world, has seen the production and installation of more types of energy resources and technologies than in the previous century: wind turbines, photovoltaic panels, liquid biofuels, and oil and gas from shale formations, etc. These actions, together with more efficient energy...
