  • Non-isolated high step-up interleaved boost converter

    The output voltage available from renewable sources like photovoltaic panels, fuel cells and battery banks are too low to be practically utilised. Therefore, the available voltage must be stepped up considerably before connecting to the load. In this paper, a novel topology, which consists of two interleaved stages and five voltage multiplier cells, is presented. The topology is derived from a ...

  • Biomass is Carbon Neutral – What Does This Mean for Sustainability?

    The topic of climate change is not without its fair share of controversy, and while there are dozens of conflicting scientific and political perspectives at play, one positive that has emerged from the chaos is that the average global citizen is far more aware of the importance of sustainability and environmental responsibility than perhaps ever before. This has trickled into the realm of ...

  • Earthy, solaris and atmospheric energy sources

    Earth, sun and atmosphere are the ultimate energy resources. In addition to fossil fuels, earth radiates over 45 TW geothermal energy. Sun radiates about 89 PW energy to earth's surface. Lunar gravity supplies over 100 GW tidal ocean energy. Accessible energy from geothermal, solar, tides, waves and winds is far more than our current 17 TW energy demand, yet there are new avenues like tornadoes ...

  • Environmental ingenuity: These creative business ideas aim to be both sustainable and successful

    Picture this: Out in the open ocean, rows of farmed kelp spanning an area about the size of Mexico. Once harvested and processed, this rapid-growing seaweed would be turned into a fuel that you could pump into your car. No more relying on fossil fuels that take millions of years to form—and whose emissions into the atmosphere are the biggest contributor to the Earth's rising temperatures. ...
