Renewable Energy Sources Charged with Energy from the Sun and Originated from Earth-Moon Interaction theme is a component of Encyclopedia of Energy Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The volume on Renewable Energy Sources Charged with Energy from the Sun and Originated from Earth-Moon Interaction, considers energy sources that are renewable in the sense that they are continually renewed, charged mainly by solar radiation, regardless of their utilization. In addition to energy sources charged by the sun, the subject of tidal energy, which originates from the gravitational interaction of the earth, moon, and sun, is also provided. This theme is structured in five main topics: Renewable Energy Sources Charged with Energy from the Sun ; Energy from Biomass; Wind Energy, Natural Temperature Differences as an Energy Source; Wave Energy; Tidal Energy, which are then expanded into multiple subtopics, each as a chapter.These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Evald E. Shpilrain was born July 9 1926, at Rostov on Don, USSR, and graduated from the Moscow Power Engineering Institute in 1948. In 1951 he submitted his thesis on Experimental study of liquid oxygen heat capacity and gained his degree as Candidate of Technical Sciences. From 1952 to 1954 he worked as an Engineer at the Design Institute for Energy Installations in Non-Ferrous Metallurgy, and from 1954 to 1978 he was associated professor and afterwards full Professor at the Thermophysics Chair in the Moscow Power Engineering Institute. In 1964 he was awarded a Doctorate in Technical Sciences (Thesis: Thermophysical properties of alkali metal vapors). Since 1961 he has served as Head of department “Energy and Energy Technology” Institute for High emperatures (IVTAN), Russian Academy of Sciences. In 1997 he was elected as a Corresponding member, Russian Academy of Sciences He is the author of more than 300 scientific papers published in Russian and international scientific journals, and twelve monographs. His main activities are concerned with energy questions, especially renewable energy sources utilization, energy conservation, and environmental issues. He is Chairman of the Scientific Committee for New and Renewable Sources of Energy, in the Ministry of Industry, Science and Technology, Russian Federation, and Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Journal of High Temperature Thermophysics (in Russian, translated into English). He is also a member of the Executive Committee on Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems, International Energy Agency
