  • Revolution in European nuclear law

    Until now, there has been no European Community Law about nuclear safety. According to decisions of the European Court of Justice (ECJ), the community has the right to regulate this field, but the former policy neglected this. Now, a draft has been published that seems to revolutionise the standards of nuclear safety in Europe.Keywords: nuclear safety, EURATOM, Western European Nuclear Regulators ...

  • Nuclear law stands on thin ice

    Revealing the questionable actions of many radiobiologists exposes the Achilles heel of nuclear law. Documentation of systematic deception is reason enough to change nuclear law. Much evidence comes from mis-statements by seven committees for the Biologic Effects of Ionizing Radiation (BEIR). These fraudulent interpretations led ignorant physicians, the media and government officials to accept ...

  • Nuclear liability law in the Czech Republic and Slovakia: current legislation and prospects for development

    The Czech Republic and Slovakia, both contracting parties to the Vienna Convention on Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage of 1963, joined the European Union (EU) on 1 May 2004. Both countries have announced plans to increase their nuclear capacities during the process of the so-called nuclear new build. Owing to these developments, nuclear legislation within these Central European states is of ...

  • The justification and the optimisation principle in international nuclear law: theory and practice

    The purpose of this paper consists of a case study on nuclear law comprising following themes and issues: 1) The role of the law and the courts in today's 'Risk Society'. There is an evolution towards more regulation on prevention and precaution, using general principles such as the Precautionary Principle, Justification and the ALARA Principle (As low as Reasonably Achievable, economic and ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...

  • Energy Security

    Renewable & Clean Energy Solutions to Secure Energy Independence from Foreign Oil. FOREIGN OIL: As imports grow and world prices rise, the amount of money we send to foreign nations every year is soaring. At current oil prices, we will send $700 billion dollars out of the country this year alone — that’s four times the annual cost of the ...

  • Biomass energy outlook

    Over the last three or four weeks, my newsletter, Burning Bio News, has been oddly extreme. Timothy Searchinger, Princeton University, is churning out more antibiofuel hearsay. Dennis Avery, Hudson Institute, was in the news again putting a counter-spin on climate change. The U.S.EPA released its proposed rule for regulation of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) that includes industrial facilities that emit ...

  • Wind & solar energy and nature conservation

    Climate change and the degradation of ecosystems and biodiversity cannot be solved in isolation. Land and marine ecosystems play a crucial role in the climate system, capturing roughly half of carbon dioxide emissions generated by human activities (UNEP, 2009). Protecting biodiversity preserves ecosystem services that are important for regulating the climate and helping us to adapt to the impacts ...

  • New Jersey Issues Final Energy Master Plan

    After significant delays, New Jersey finally released the State’s 2011 Energy Master Plan. As expected, the plan provides a significant commitment to solar power, but also addresses this year’s dramatic drop in SREC prices. The plan didn’t over incentivize the solar industry, and expands on the energy conservation incentives for existing buildings which is important given that ...

  • Thermodynamic analyses of closed thermochemical energy storages

    Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is an important technology for achieving more efficient and environmentally acceptable energy systems. Where space is limited, thermochemical TES has the highest potential to achieve compact thermal energy storage. Here, a general closed thermochemical TES is investigated using energy and exergy analyses. An illustrative example is presented, and the energy and exergy ...

  • Lessons from Indonesia: Mobilizing Investment in Geothermal Energy

    Developing countries will need about $531 billion of additional investments in clean energy technologies every year in order to limit global temperature rise to 2°C above pre-industrial levels, thus preventing climate change’s worst impacts. To attract investments on the scale required, developing country governments, with ...

  • Energy savings: VFD versus CSV case study

    The two most common ways to produce constant pressure are Variable Frequency Drives or VFD’s, and Cycle Stop Valves or CSV’s. The end result is the same in that the system sees a steady or constant pressure, as the flow rates required vary from small to large. However, these two systems control the pump in completely different ways. Variable Frequency Drives or ...
