Growing populations – about 80 million every year – and industrializing countries create huge needs for electrical energy. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) the global energy demand will increase by about 65% by 2035. A major fraction of the required energy will continue to be provided by thermal – mainly fossil fuel-fired and nuclear – power plants. "Renewable" energy sources such as photovoltaics (PV) will be another backbone of our energy supply. Putting renewable...
Energy storage in batteries or chemical fuels such as hydrogen or synthetic natural gas (produced through water electrolysis) will be crucial to the worldwide large scale deployment of fluctuating renewable energies.
Cleaner burning than other fossil fuels, the combustion of natural gas produces negligible amounts of sulfur, mercury, and particulates. However, natural gas does produce nitrogen oxides (NOx), which contributes to smog.
Energy comprises many types of modes by using complex processes to explore, extract, refine, produce and transport these products. The energy industry comprises: Fossil fuels: coal, petroleum and natural gas (conventional as well as hydraulic fracturing), including liquid propane gas and liquid natural gas. Non fossil fuels such as: hydroelectric, battery technology, hydrogen fuel cells, nuclear power. Renewable fuels such as: biofuels, hydrogen fuel cells, geothermal, solar (photovoltaic). Nuclear power.
SolarReserve’s proven technology delivers a cost-effective, reliable and most importantly, a baseload supply of electricity that is critical to mining operations. This innovative approach to clean power generation provides the mining sector with a reliable, 24 x 7 power supply, to help them displace the high price of conventional electricity generation and hedge against fuel price increases in remote locations.
Pulsair Systems manufactures the most efficient and effective storage tank mixing process for blending and agitating biodiesel fuel. The efficient Pulsair mixing process is well suited for the high viscosity and heavy fluid characteristic of biodiesel. Pulsair offers a complete line of off the shelf biodiesel fuel mixers and agitators for mixing in a 55-gallon drum or larger 250 - 1 million+ gallon tanks for biodiesel fuel storage or production. Pulsair biodiesel fuel mixers are explosion proof and safe for...
In a recent project and the subject of this paper, Kurz engineers conducted a study that lead to a unique, new design that allows thermal flow meters to perform accurately within a wet digester gas environment. The testing environment applies to landfill and digester applications.
PROJECT OVERVIEW: Large residential and commercial project in London, overlooking the Thames. A 2.9MW cooling and heating aquifer thermal energy storage system for five mixed-use buildings including over 200 luxury apartments.
Due to the increase in extreme weather events and deferred investments in the grid, many communities experience a growing rate of grid outages. Energy storage systems can bring peace of mind to those who live in areas prone to storms or unreliable utility grids. Eguana`s energy storage solutions are designed to automatically switch to battery power in the event of an electric company outage.
SolarReserve’s industry-leading solar thermal technology features an integrated molten salt energy storage system that provides a stable and predictable electricity dispatch similar to that of conventional utility power facilities—without any associated harmful environmental emissions or volatile fuel costs. Additionally, our solar thermal power plants with integrated energy storage are cost-competitive with most new build fossil fuel or nuclear technology.
Ethanol can be produced from a variety of raw materials such as corn, sugar cane, soy beans, switchgrass, corn stover, and cellulosic materials. Corn can be processed in a dry or wet mill to produce ethanol. Advances and research in ethanol continues to find new and more energy efficient ways to produce ethanol and biofuels and new raw materials for production.
CST Covers aluminum domes are custom designed around a bulk storage facilities specific clearance requirements, basin configuration and bulk handling equipment. Structurally efficient and lightweight, they maximize bulk storage capacity, minimize foundation costs and provide dependable protection form the elements while remaining virtually maintenance free.
Seamless Coordination: Comprising five H-TEC SYSTEMS electrolysis systems each with 200 kW, the hydrogen integrated grid will be installed at suitable wind farms in North Frisia. Excess electricity generated through renewable energy will be converted into hydrogen using PEM electrolysis, then stored locally in pressure tanks and regularly collected at the five locations and delivered to two hydrogen filling stations using a pressure tank vehicle. These hydrogen filling stations supply fuel cell-powered buses used...
