  • CSP Thermal Energy Storage vital for utilities and grid operators

    The modern age of CSP can arguably be traced back to the 354MW Solar Energy Generating Systems (SEGS) in the Mojave desert, which now make up the oldest operating plant in the world, as well as one of the largest. However, recent developments in the industry will see SEGS eclipsed by 5 projects that are scheduled to come online in 2013-14, with a combined total of 1312MW. The five plants in ...

  • 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 ...

  • 7 Theses on Storage Systems in Commercial Applications

    Solar storage systems are now the focus of attention more than ever before. The application areas are as different as the requirements. While private PV system operators work toward optimizing self-consumption, storage systems in industry are mainly used to provide control reserve and thus ensure grid stability. In commercial storage ...

  • ‘Energy democracy’ becomes more real

    Will new technologies democratize energy much the way the Internet did information? Industry movement seems to point in that direction with the rise of the smart grid, time-of-day pricing, distributed solar, and the electric vehicle. Together these technologies offer a vision of a less centralized energy system, one where communities and households ‘vote in’ or shape the electric grid ...

  • Woody Biomass as renewable energy source

    In-depth analysis in Minnesota assesses the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of regional biomass generated electricity projects that tap into local feedstocks. The Center for Energy and Environment (CEE) in Minneapolis, Minnesota undertook a multiphase research project to create a framework that communities and legislators can use to determine the feasibility of biomass-generated electricity in ...

  • Multi-criterion optimization of energy management in drinking systems

    In this study, two different energy sources that are connected to a pumped storage water supply system are analyzed: a water and a wind turbine. A water turbine can be integrated in a water supply system in high-pressure locations. Recently, new sources of energy production are being researched and applied due to the increase in the price of conventional energy sources and concerns regarding the ...

  • Mobile systems provide solar energy in northern climates

    The Department of Transportation for Alberta, Canada, is examining innovative strategies to resolve environmental issues in remote areas of the province. Portable units for harnessing solar energy have been demonstrated over the past five years as a viable method for generating the electricity needed to drive remediation systems at several sites in western Canada. The typical mobile system ...

  • Building Energy Modeling 101: HVAC Design and Operation Use Case

    A great deal of energy use in buildings goes toward heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC). In 2015, HVAC consumed 15.5 quads. The first step in reducing HVAC energy use is reducing heating and cooling load—i.e., the amount of heat that needs to be added to or removed from a building—typically by reducing heat from equipment and lighting; minimizing unnecessary ...

  • Clean-Energy Innovation Essential to meeting Climate Goals – IEA Report

    A concerted push for clean-energy innovation is the only way the world can meet its climate goals, the International Energy Agency says as it released its flagship energy technology report. The report, Energy Technology Perspectives 2015 (ETP 2015), shows that despite a few recent success stories, clean-energy progress is falling well short of the levels needed to ...

  • VSEP pre-concentrates black liquor in pulp and paper mills to reduce evaporator load and cut energy costs

    As pulp mills have increased production rates to meet market demands, many mills built over the last 20 to 30 years have become limited in evaporator  capacity to treat their black liquor volume. The ability to also recover excess liquor from storage areas to higher solids levels is another demand on the evaporators. For mills with outside storage ponds that receive a large amount of rain, ...

  • Optimal scheduling and operation of hybrid biomass/wind/PV energy system for rural areas

    In this paper, a hybrid energy system consisting of biomass, wind, solar photovoltaic (SPV) and battery, is proposed. The sources are operated to deliver energy at optimum efficiency. An optimisation model is developed to supply the available energy to the loads according to the priority. It is also proposed to maintain a fair level of energy storage to meet the peak load demand together with ...

  • Size optimisation of hybrid wind-PV power generation systems for remote rural areas

    Electrical power generation with renewable energies, such as wind and solar, plays an important role in the electrification of remote rural areas. Since there are always seasonal and synoptic variations in wind and solar resources, a hybrid system, consisting of both wind and solar energy, may be more reliable and economical than a single energy system: this is because either energy can ...

  • Are you eligible for a manufacturing tax credit?

    The United States has been generous with tax credits for energy production. But until now, it’s been somewhat miserly about giving breaks to those who make the equipment that makes the energy – or saves it.That’s changed with creation of the Advanced Energy Manufacturing Credit (MTC), part of the federal stimulus package. The 30% tax credit makes $2.3 billion available for new, expanded, or ...

  • Reactive and real power compensation with DSTATCOM and BESS for mitigation of flicker
