  • The natural gas revolution: Good or bad for energy efficiency?

    If there were an equivalent in the energy industry to Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, natural gas would be this year’s winner. The dramatic rise in natural gas supply, and fall in price, has reconfigured the energy scene in the United States, suddenly creating a bounty of domestic energy, driving down wholesale power prices and speeding retirement of polluting coal-fired plants. ...

  • Polygeneration-IGCC concepts for the production of hydrogen rich fuels based on lignite

    This paper presents three IGCC-power plant concepts for central production of a hydrogen-rich fuel (methanol, hydrogen, synthetic natural gas ? SNG) from lignite. Each concept contains a CO2-separation, which produces a sequestration-ready CO2-rich stream. Thus, CO2-emissions caused by use of lignite are considerably reduced. Furthermore, the produced low-carbon fuels are converted in ...

  • The isoengine: realisation of a high-efficiency power cycle based on isothermal compression

    A novel high-efficiency internal combustion engine for power generation and direct-drive applications is being developed. Distillate-fuelled power plants in units of 7 MW electrical output are predicted to reach a net electrical efficiency of 60%. An efficiency of 58% is targeted for the gas-fired version. This compares with a net electrical efficiency of about 45% for advanced reciprocating ...

  • Adapting TPV for Use in a Standard Home Heating Furnace

    Abstract, A novel TPV configuration will be presented that can fit into a standard home furnace cabinet. This system incorporates an externally faceted glass cylinder with a dichroic filter deposited on its outer surface and a GaSb IR cell array bonded to the outer surface on top of the filter. This cylindrical array is then surrounded with an envelope containing a low boiling point liquid for ...

  • 4 Ways North Carolina can reduce its power sector emissions

    Like all U.S. states, North Carolina will need to reduce its power sector CO2 emissions in order to alleviate the impacts of climate change and comply with future EPA standards. New ...

  • A Stronger, Cleaner Michigan: 5 Steps to cost-effectively reduce power sector emissions

    New analysis b New analysis by WRI reveals that Michigan has already made big strides to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions, including saving energy and increasing renewable power. And, it has the potential to go even further. According to our research, Michigan can ...

  • The whey to renewable energy

    When Tom Wilson with the Pennsylvania State University Cooperative Extension set out to study the feasibility of a community-based anaerobic digester in Mercer County, he initially analyzed processing manure collected from area dairies and food wastes gathered from the local college, nearby prisons and industrial food processors. But the economics of transporting the materials just did not make ...
