The purpose of this book is to provide an overview of important principles in the fields of finance and accounting relevant to energy engineering projects, bridging the gap between the typical business school "MBA" knowledge and its application in project management responsibilities. It is written to serve as a self study guide for energy engineers, technicians and technical managers who either lack formal training in the finance, accounting and engineering economics or simply need a means to refresh their knowledge in these subjects. Many technical managers feel inadequately equipped to understand certain important finance and accounting principles, yet these principles are important in interfacing and conducting business with accountants, financial analysts and upper management. This book provides a resource to fill this gap, and to equip energy engineering professionals with the ability to employ decision making skills founded on financial calculations and quantitative analysis.
