  • US Dominance in Alternative Energy and Energy Efficient Technologies

    20 years ago there were very few people who would have thought that international competitiveness to be number one would involve much of anything outside military, aerospace or, computer technologies. The last thing anyone probably expected would be a race to be the top producer of the most efficient and environmentally safe technologies on earth. Yet that is precisely what is taking place right ...

  • The battle of batteries: a history of innovation in alternative energy cars

    The paper gives a global view on the historical development of electrical cars. It is a history described in five major waves; the first one starting about 1835 and the last one ending about 2000. With two cases, important aspects of the two last waves are described in detail. The cases are the French VEL car and the Norwegian Think car. They have had their more specific setbacks. Problems in ...

  • India’s Potential in Harnessing the Alternate Energy Sources

    Long queues for gasoline, high prices and shortage of gasoline are the signs which show that how natural resources are on the verge of depletion. This shows that it is high time for us to view how to utilize natural resources. India is mainly depended on import of petroleum products for its energy requirements. It meets its requirements by importing 70% of petroleum products. This is a point of ...

  • The alternative to coal in South Africa

    With a desperate need for dispatchable generation, South Africa should be readily embracing CSP as a low-carbon, sustainable, base load energy alternative. So why do its energy authorities remain unconvinced? This question has formed the subject of Part 2 of the CSP Today South Africa Guide. London, UK October 11 2011 Forget green energy: while most nations are concerned ...

  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • A project finance alternative: the bond market

    As many existing landfills reach capacity, local authorities and waste management companies face significant opposition to new development from property owners, municipalities and environmentalists. Rather than enduring an arduous battle, some stakeholders are pursuing a new, 21st- Century alternative. The evolution of the waste-toenergy (WTE) and waste-to-fuel (WTF) industry is accelerating as ...

  • Interview Vivienne Cox, ceo BP alternative energy: A time for choices

    The economic downturn is sharpening the focus of clean energy investment, says Vivienne Cox, the head of BP’s Alternative Energy business. Cox detects an increasingly business-like approach that the industry is taking towards new investment. ‘It is a time for choices.’ Of the major oil and gas companies, BP was an early mover in promoting and pursuing the business of clean energy, although the ...

  • The diffusion of innovation and perceived risk for the adoption of alternative energy vehicles

    Many researchers have studied alternative energy issues from a policy or industry viewpoint, but few have explored the consumer's beliefs and opinions. Since most applications of alternative energy are being developed for the consumer market, the consumer's acceptance and adoption of these new fuels and alternative energy vehicles are key factors to consider. This research studies the consumer's ...

  • Optimal environmental benefits of utilising alternative energy technologies in Jordan

    With rapid population growth and increase in industrial activities, more energy is consumed, resulting in environmental pollution and economic difficulties. Therefore, the need for utilising renewable energy resources has emerged. Although Jordan does not have adequate fuel supplies (90% of its crude oil is imported), it is gifted with alternative resources. Because of the political and ...

  • Alternative energy efficient membrane bioreactor using reciprocating submerged membrane

    A novel membrane bioreactor (MBR) pilot system, using membrane reciprocation instead of air scouring, was operated at constant high flux and daily fluctuating flux to demonstrate its application under peak and diurnal flow conditions. Low and stable transmembrane pressure was achieved at 40 l/m2/h (LMH) by use of repetitive membrane reciprocation. The results reveal that the inertial forces ...

  • Ensuring future energy alternatives: the role of resource planning in forming long-range energy and environmental policies

    Many of the energy and environmental issues facing the world can be characterised as a combination of 1) complex problems, 2) dispersed solutions, and 3) finite resources. Identifying and implementing rationale and environmentally responsible energy strategies under these conditions requires considerable co-ordination among policy-makers, technology developers, energy service providers and the ...

  • Focus Bioenergy No 1 2003: Bioenergy - a sustainable alternative

    Sweden is heavily dependent on imports when it comes to energy. The imported fossil fuels contribute to global environmentalproblems. They need to be replacedwith sustainable renewable sources of energy such as bioenergy. Changing from fossil fuels to biofuels mitigates the greenhouseeffect. If we use more bioenergy, and in the appropriate way, the Swedish energy system will become more ...

  • An Alternative to the Cathead and Rope for the Standard Penetration Test

    Previous studies by the authors have found that a cathead and rope when used to perform standard penetration tests (SPT) have resulted in energies reaching the striker plate or anvil substantially less than those resulting from a complete or 100% free fall. In fact, depending on variables such as the number of turns of rope around the cathead, the rope age, cathead speed, and method of rope ...

  • Business seeks viable alternatives to price cutting

    The UK manufacturing industry is undergoing a severe recession. Any business involved in production is facing serious competition from countries that can produce goods at much lower prices due to cheaper equipment, labour and general costs. Globalisation has meant that companies have had to expand their focus to include new and expanding markets. Assessing where manufacturing functions are best ...

  • Alternative matrices for India's future power demands

    Against the planned capacity addition of 41,110 MW during the 10th Plan, only 21,180 MW could be added. The plan to alter the power mix by enhancing the nuclear power generation capacity of 4120 MW at current levels to 20,000 MW by the next decade seems too ambitious, with only 1% of global uranium reserves. The exercise to source uranium by signing the 123-Agreement with the USA is held up. With ...
