Welcome to jonstarbuck.co.uk
I am Jon Starbuck, I spend my time studying for an MSc. and working as a renewable energy engineer and technical author.
About this web site:
This website has two sections, “Pages” which are permanent web-page style pages (like this one) and “Posts” which are blog-style web pages separated into “Categories”. See left-hand menu for Pages and Posts.
Primarily I work as an engineer on renewable energy projects and as a technical author. Most recently I have been working with Sungevity in California.
“the long awaited replacement Tickel’s long outdated book”
I spent a lot of 2008 co-authoring a book, Run Your Diesel Vehicle on Biofuels, for McGraw Hill – it is a practical, empowering, heavily illustrated D.I.Y. guide. Unlike similar books available it tries very hard to be unbiased, apolitical an un-evangelical; it shows you everything from from making biodiesel at home to converting your engine to run directly on vegetable oil, all in the one book.
I graduated from university in 2000 with an undergraduate degree in physics. I am currently studying on an MSc in Renewable Energy Systems Technology, the course is based at Loughborough University in the UK but I study from home.
