Hydrogen fuel technologies have been on everyone's mind for quite some time now. However, due to the cost of hydrogen production, these technolgies have yet to be employed. With new techniques to produce hydrogen, the cost is declining and the efficiency is on the rise. By using renewable energy source for the hydrogen generation, there are virtually no emissions, leaving no carbon footprint. Combining cost efficiency with renewability will lead to more expedient hydrogen production and a cleaner tomorrow. Hydrogen will be our fuel for the future!
Firebricks offer low-cost storage for carbon-free energy
Original story at MIT News Ancient technology could be used to level electricity prices for renewables. Firebricks, designed to withstand high heat, have been part of our technological arsenal for at least three millennia, since the era of the Hittites. Now, a proposal from MIT researchers shows this ancient invention could play a key role in enabling the world to switch away from fossil fuels and rely instead on carbon-free energy sources. The researchers’ idea is to make use of excess electricity...
The Rising Cost of Water
There`s a common economic paradox about the price tag on drinking water and value. Our current economic climate places prices on things predicated on scarcity and value. Water pricing is now more widespread, with the dual goal of expanding supply and encouraging more responsible use. So long as water remained abundant, the cheapness of drinking water is not likely to change. However, the price of water has entered into serious questioning. The price tag on water increased 4 percent this past year, according to...
Water: the natural choice - better comfort, lower cost
Hydronic systems deliver safe, more responsive indoor comfort, especially with multiple zones. They provide the most efficient method of dehumidifying in humid climates.Chilled water does the job.There are several ways to move BTUs around a building. Choosing water delivers superior comfort without the use and expense of man-made refrigerants. Water is the greenest, safest way to heat and cool. That`s why it`s the system of choice for America. Advanced technologies like single pipe distribution systems, variable...
Saving on electroplating costs
Montblanc is a company based in Hamburg, Germany, that is well-known for manufacturing handcrafted, high-quality writing instruments. Perhaps the best known Montblanc product is the classic masterpiece, a fountain pen. The pen’s cap features the white star emblem, which is a stylised nod to Mont Blanc’s snowy peak. All Montblanc writing instruments are characterised by their high-quality materials. Many individual components in the pens – such as the nibs, rings and clips – are made from...
Evaporative cooling cuts energy costs
Commercial contractors utilize alternative technology in today’s buildings It is estimated that HVAC systems account for approximately 40 percent of the energy used in commercial buildings, which is why many building owners and managers are looking for ways to cut these costs. One way to do that may be to utilize evaporative cooling systems, which can be relatively inexpensive to purchase and often require much less energy than other forms of cooling. Evaporative cooling technology is already becoming...
