Energy 101, from Cutler Cleveland’s energy library

One of the difficult things about the bioenergy scene, is the need to begin each conversation at the beginning.  The lack of common vocabulary and gaps in fundamental concepts are part and parcel of an interdisciplinary inquiry.  Although it retards development of cohesive teams, those who are willing to engage in the process of learning the core concepts from multiple fields find a more complete understanding in the long run.  Cutler Cleveland is one of those rare people that can write academic articles and multi-volume textbooks, and then produce this elegant little set of webpages that can be understood by anyone with a ninth grade education.
