  • Emerging Asian Economies Drive the Increase in World Energy Use from 2015 to 2040

    World energy consumption is projected to increase by 28% by 2040, according to the International Energy Outlook 2017 (IEO2017), released today by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Most of the world's growth in energy demand is projected to take place in countries outside of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). China and ...

  • Waste to Energy Analysis

    The manufacturing of SRF in a single pass is not a new concept. However, with the environmental efficacy of alternative fuel production under seemingly increasing scrutiny, a one-step process is of growing importance, believes Peter Streinik, Head of Business Unit Waste at UNTHA. There can be no disputing that alternative fuel production is being increasingly acknowledged as a valuable part of ...

  • The regional analysis of energy consumption and energy resources in China

    In recent years, issues relating to Chinese energy supply and consumption have drawn worldwide attention. The Chinese government maintains that the solution to energy demand issues should be resolved by improving domestic supply; but the regional availability of energy is irregular across China. The regional consumption and composition of energy supply are analysed in this paper and suggestions ...

  • Spatial model for wood energy analysis

    Fuelwood is one of the major fuels for rural households and cottage industries in developing countries. Most of the fuelwood consumed in rural areas come from nearby forests. The estimates on the availability of fuelwood are based on gross national estimates and may not reflect the local conditions. As a result, planning for wood energy supply and consumption becomes an ad hoc process. In this ...

  • Decentralised and centralised energy: a property rights analysis

    Interconnection between centralised and decentralised electrical power sources remains a contentious issue on technical, economic, and policy grounds. This paper considers the problem of interconnection as a property rights problem one that involves allocation conflicts and pressures for institutional change. We argue that the current policy approach to interconnection problems between ...

  • Chinese Solar Energy Market Analysis to 2014

    This  latest market research report titled Solar Energy in China 2014 states that the market is expected to witness rapid growth owing to favorable policy environment in the country. With the country facing a continuous shortfall in the supply of conventional sources required to meet the increasing demand for energy in recent years, the focus is gradually shifting from conventional to ...


  • Asia–Pacific Analysis: The slow road to green energy

    More Asia–Pacific countries need to embrace renewable energy and follow the first tentative steps of some governments, says Crispin Maslog. The South-East Asia and Pacific region is blessed with abundant sources of 'green' energy ...

  • Energy and exergy analysis of reverse Brayton refrigerator for Gas Turbine power boosting

    In this study the use of Reverse Brayton cycle to boost up the power of gas turbine power plants operating in hot humid ambiance is analysed by the energy and exergy methods. The gas turbine inlet temperature is reduced by mixing the chilled air from Brayton refrigeration cycle and the main intake air stream reaching low intake temperatures. In this paper the effect of irreversibilities in the ...

  • Renewable, clean energy: the petroleum footprint - wind farms under analysis

    This paper presents a methodology to assess projects for the generation of clean, renewable energy. Such methodology is applied here to estimate the consumption of fossil fuels (referred to as 'oil'), required for the construction, operation and maintenance of a wind farm consisting of 97 turbines of 3 MW each. Results show that such consumption represents a conservative 8–9% of the total energy ...

  • Control and small-signal analysis of battery and supercapacitor hybrid energy storage systems

    This paper is devoted to control strategies for an active battery and supercapacitor hybrid energy storage system using the master-slave control scheme, where the charging and discharging currents of the supercapacitor are dependent on that of battery and the current sharing ratio depends upon the load conditions. A small-signal model is proposed, which considers the variations in the currents of ...

  • Supporting wave and tidal energy in the UK - an analysis of UK Policy 2000-2009

    In order to stimulate UK based marine energy technology developers, the UK Government launched the Marine Renewables Proving Fund (MRPF) in 2009. This instrument was designed to bridge the gap between early-stage research funding and the recently-criticised Marine Renewables Deployment Fund (MRDF). This paper develops an analysis framework for policy instruments designed to support technology ...

  • Extension of energy–utilisation diagram to power availability for exergy loss analysis

    Energy–Utilisation Diagram (EUD) has been used to identify exergy loss in general process units, whereas Power Availability Diagram (PAD) provides the difference between exergy changes of two pressure exchangers. Two modifications of the original PAD are proposed for better exergy loss visualisation. Firstly, the energy donor curve is shifted to the location of energy acceptor. Secondly, arrows ...

  • Entropy-energy analysis of porous stack: steady state conjugate problem

    We have performed analytical and limited numerical analyses for fully developed forced convection and entropy generation in a fluid-saturated porous medium channel bounded by two parallel plates of finite thickness. The full problem is treated as a conjugate heat transfer problem. The Darcy-Brinkman momentum equation is used to model the flow through the porous media. The outer surfaces of the ...

  • Exergy analysis of a wind turbine

    The present paper deals with a developed and improved approach for exergy analysis of the wind. Based on this model, a typical wind turbine model (Bergey Excel-S) is assumed to be installed in two cities in Iran. The results show that, with regard to the annual average wind data, if the wind turbine is installed in Tehran, by varying the cut in, rated and furling speeds from 3.1, 13.8 and 15.6 ...
