  • Experts in combustion control - Expert Paper

    Fired heaters are integral to hydrocarbon processing (HP). Specifically designed for the reaction of fuel and air to produce extremely high gas temperatures, heaters transfer this energy to potentially highly flammable process fluids via heat exchangers. They consume large quantities of fuel, produce large quantities of emissions and are a potential safety hazard to personnel and plant. However, ...

  • The Energy-saving and Environmental Protection of LED Tri-proof Luminaires Have Made Great Contributions to the Processing Industry

    The three-proof lamps made of PC material are better material style, even if they are stepped on by foot, they will not break, and they are very durable. However, the transparency of this material is not as good as that of ABS lamps. The lamp made of ABS material is very brittle and crackable, but the transparency of this material is very good and bright. PMMA materials are cheaper, but less ...

  • Where neoclassical economics fails: impacts on renewable electricity in the UK

    This paper explores the appropriateness and effectiveness of using a market-based governance system, in the form of the renewable obligation (RO) in the UK, to drive the uptake of electricity from renewable technologies. The paper will argue that neoclassical thinking around markets makes key assumptions on efficiency, effectiveness and equity that are not suitable for emerging renewable ...

  • Fuel cells - the environmentally friendly energy converter and power generator

    Heat engines based on fossil fuel combustion produce harmful pollutant emissions. Environmental concerns and sustainable development call for new technology for energy conversion and power generation, which is more efficient, environmentally friendly and compatible with alternative fuels and renewable energy sources and carriers. Fuel cells meet all these requirements and are being rapidly ...

  • 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 ...

  • Is nuclear energy an alternative: a case of technology assessment in Oregon

    This paper presents a technology assessment of the technology alternatives to meet Oregon's energy needs while meeting its goals for the environment and consumers. The analysis focused on comparing nuclear power with other sources of energy. Methodologies including Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis, hierarchical decision models and expert interviews were used. This ...

  • Evaluating advanced automotive energy technologies: a multivariate mobility contribution metric

    Mobility technology is beginning to shift from gasoline-fuelled, internal combustion engines to a variety of alternate fuels and powertrains, including hybrid and fuel cell vehicles. The benefits and/or limitations of many of these technologies are not well characterised by a simple fuel economy metric: mobility is a complex system requiring a multivariate systems measure, especially ...

  • Revisiting rural energy analysis

    Rural energy planning is characterised by matching, as far as possible, the available local energy supply with various energy end-uses. For this matching, decision-makers have to consider several issues, such as cost, technology, sustainability and equity. These objectives are conflicting and, therefore, it is difficult to find an optimised solution. Therefore, such problems should be analysed by ...

  • Environmental impacts of integrating wind energy systems and supplemental energy generation and storage systems

    Wind energy systems offer a promising alternative energy source due to the environmental, economic, and social benefits and, as a result, have garnered support for development and implementation. One of the major drawbacks of wind energy, however, is its variability due to the stochastic nature of wind, thus, supplemental energy generation or storage technologies are required. In this study, a ...

  • Technological change, energy consumption, and the costs of environmental policy in energy–economy–environment modelling

    An increasing number of empirical models analyse the economic and environmental impacts of policies that aim at reducing global climate change. Assumptions about technology are found to play a crucial role. Applied energy-economy-environment models propose different approaches to deal with technological change. Bottom-up models take into account many alternative technologies for future energy ...
