Energy comprises many types of modes by using complex processes to explore, extract, refine, produce and transport these products. The energy industry comprises: Fossil fuels: coal, petroleum and natural gas (conventional as well as hydraulic fracturing), including liquid propane gas and liquid natural gas. Non fossil fuels such as: hydroelectric, battery technology, hydrogen fuel cells, nuclear power. Renewable fuels such as: biofuels, hydrogen fuel cells, geothermal, solar (photovoltaic). Nuclear power.
Growing populations – about 80 million every year – and industrializing countries create huge needs for electrical energy. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) the global energy demand will increase by about 65% by 2035. A major fraction of the required energy will continue to be provided by thermal – mainly fossil fuel-fired and nuclear – power plants. "Renewable" energy sources such as photovoltaics (PV) will be another backbone of our energy supply. Putting renewable...
Dürr MEGTEC’s industry-leading experience in air handling, drying, heating, cooling, process and combustion control can help improve the operating efficiency of your facility and maximize the performance of your equipment. By analyzing current process energy usage, we can offer solutions to reduce your energy consumption.
Rising fuel and electric costs, along with global warming concerns have changed the way industrial facilities view energy consumption. Process equipment and air pollution control systems that were installed several years ago may not reflect the energy conscious designs available today, analyzing these systems to determine energy reduction opportunities can be a very valuable practice. Recovering waste heat is one of the easiest and most utilized means of reducing energy demands at industrial facilities.
ISCO Industries offers solutions for various power piping applications in nuclear, fossil and renewable generation facilities. Whatever your power needs, ISCO Industries supplies pipe, fittings, fabricated fittings, related piping products and more.
Our Power Pallet biomass gasifier genset, when used with the grid-tie module, can be integrated with an existing 3-phase AC microgrid that includes intermittent electrical sources such as solar panels or small wind turbines.
Global demand for energy and infrastructures is increasing rapidly due to economic and population growth. New challenges are created by the need to fulfil the societal demand for energy and mobility, the necessity to reduce emissions and pollutants, and obligations to comply with environmental regulations. Satellite Earth observation is a highly cost-effective means for the assessment of energy demand and renewable energy potential, monitoring of infrastructure development, environmental impact assessment and the...
Biomass produces a cleaner, renewable energy, reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions, all while creating lower operating costs for power plants.
Biomass, the by-product of pulp and paper, agriculture, and municipal sludge, is perhaps the oldest source of renewable energy on Earth. Biomass' use in energy production is currently growing worldwide at an exponential rate.
Biomass energy from gasification, when done responsibly with waste wood or suitable agricultural waste such as nut shells, is often eligible for feed-in tariffs. However, biomass gasification has the advantage of being on-demand, so you can feed renewable energy onto the grid at times when wind and solar are not abundant, enabling you to avoid times when prices are too low due to an excess of wind or solar power being fed to the grid.
Fundamental changes are evident in the power industry. From a highly regulated and monopolistic industry, it is evolving rapidly into a marketplace defined by increasing competition and deregulation. Technology providers should be in the game allowing power companies to focus on their core business, producing electricity at maximum efficiency.
In 2012, GP JOULE developed the power gap filler system to compensate for load fluctuations in the grid resulting from variations in the supply of wind and solar energy. PEM electrolysers convert excess green energy into hydrogen, which can be stored and fed back into the grid as required via a biogas-fired block-type thermal power station. This makes it possible to optimally integrate renewable energies into the electrical grid and offset and compensate for a lack of energy on days when there is little wind or...
Seamless Coordination: Comprising five H-TEC SYSTEMS electrolysis systems each with 200 kW, the hydrogen integrated grid will be installed at suitable wind farms in North Frisia. Excess electricity generated through renewable energy will be converted into hydrogen using PEM electrolysis, then stored locally in pressure tanks and regularly collected at the five locations and delivered to two hydrogen filling stations using a pressure tank vehicle. These hydrogen filling stations supply fuel cell-powered buses used...
Although power plant operators maintain shorter pressure pipe distances to support their operations, regular maintenance and safe management is extremely important because the pipes have a high consequence of failure.
Reduction of perating costs: The increased energy costs over the last years have made investments towards heat recovery solutions not only cost effective but profitable. With the support and input of our employees and our technical know how, are improvements and solutions concerning heat recovery become feasible.
Energy Technology Centre provides versatile facilities for the engineering development of key elements of marine power systems including mechanisms, flow systems and individual components. Hydraulic power packs with a range of actuators allow sinusoidal and profiled time histories to be created for reproducing typical wave motion. Accelerated life cycle testing and the ability to undertake component qualification helps to de-risk deployment of complete systems offshore.
The power generation sector is an essential service industry that uses technologies ranging from the mature steam turbine to pioneering marine current turbines. Since privatisation in the UK in 1990, the main objective of the sector has been profitability for shareholders, although issues such as health, safety, sustainability and fuel poverty have also become increasingly important on the corporate agenda.
