  • In view of sustainable future energetic–exergetic and economic analysis of a natural gas cogeneration plant

    Thermodynamics plays an important role in performing energy and exergy analyses of industrial processes. The first law is widely used in engineering practice, and is the basis of the heat–balance method of analysis that is commonly used in energy systems performance analysis. However, the second law involves the reversibility or irreversibility of processes, and is a very important aspect ...

  • Economic Potential for Thermophotovoltaic Electric Power Generation in the Steel Industry

    ABSTRACT - A steel mill extrudes steel billets at temperatures above 1400 °C continuously 24 hours a day. The steel billets then go to cooling beds where they slowly cool down to below 1100 °C. JX Crystals Inc makes Gallium Antimonide (GaSb) thermophotoyoltaic (TPV) cells that can generate over 1 W/cm when exposed to infrared radiant energy from glowing steel at temperatures above 1100 ...

  • Energy waste the size of Japan

    Here is a startling fact: US power plants waste more energy than many countries use, including advanced economies like that of Japan. The wasted energy is in the form of heat thrown off when power plants produce electricity. This is one of the points being brought to light by the International District Energy Association (IDEA), as it promotes new federal incentives for heat efficiency. While the ...

  • A real options–based approach in guaranteed energy savings contracting

    The full development of the energy services company (ESCO) industry is still inhibited by the difficulties during the negotiation between customers and ESCOs. Contractual arrangements are traditionally based on energy performance contracting (EPC). Improvements on EPC schemes are required in order to achieve the success of the negotiation. This work focuses on a particular type of EPC, named ...
