  • Marine cultivation technology opening the door to the rich sources of clean energy in our oceans

    Despite the growing demand and supply of renewable energy sources, we still rely on fossil fuels for much of our global energy. But deep below the ocean, there is a source of clean carbon energy waiting to be harvested, which will go a long way to reducing our dependence on oil, gas and coal – seaweed. A recent study in Nature Geoscience estimated that seaweed floating down to ...

  • Environmental impacts of integrating wind energy systems and supplemental energy generation and storage systems

    Wind energy systems offer a promising alternative energy source due to the environmental, economic, and social benefits and, as a result, have garnered support for development and implementation. One of the major drawbacks of wind energy, however, is its variability due to the stochastic nature of wind, thus, supplemental energy generation or storage technologies are required. In this study, a ...

  • Saving Renewable Energy for a Rainy Day

    Despite advances in renewable energy technologies, one of the largest hurdles in their widespread adoption has been their intermittent reliability. Energy is only useful if it is available as the grid demands it, which is why concerns about carbon emissions are overridden in favor of the more dependable oil, coal and gas for baseload power. In order for renewable sources such as wind and solar ...

  • Capacity optimization of hydropower storage projects using particle swarm optimization algorithm

    A mixed integer optimization model is formulated for capacity optimization of a hydropower storage project with control on reliability of meeting the project's firm energy yield. Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is used as the optimization algorithm, in which the method of sequential streamflow routing is called for objective function evaluations. Two types of problems are studied. The first one ...

  • 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 ...

  • Upcoming EU electricity and gas directives should be changed to support EU`s new energy and climate policies

    It is important that the coming electricity and gas market directives ensures that renewable energy is given priority in the electricity and gas networks. This is both important when the energy is sold from local producers to the network and when the network is used for transport of energy from a renewable energy production unit to its owners. It applies to both electricity and gas networks, and ...
