Twelve principles for introducing sustainable energy storage to the electrical grid

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Apr. 22, 2016)

Researchers have provided a set of guidelines to help policymakers, designers and operators develop sustainable solutions for energy-storage systems for electricity grids. The guidelines cover a range of energy-storage technologies and grid-integration options. As societies move towards decarbonising the world’s energy supply and reducing ...

Total Exhaust Biosafety Cabinet Upgrade at Research Facility Provides Significant Energy Savings

by The Baker Company  (Apr. 20, 2016)

When Harvard’s Biology Research Infrastructure (BRI) facility opened in 2006, they required four biological safety cabinets to provide primary containment during animal procedures. In the selection process, workspace containment and isolation requirements, operation modes for non-use periods and maintenance, building integration, and the ...

Canada’s Other Energy Boom – Energy infrastructure is on the move.

by GLOBE Foundation  (May 11, 2015)

When it comes to energy infrastructure, Canada is on the move. Of course, that may seem like nothing new, given Canada’s lengthy energy history, particularly in the oil and gas industries. In this latest chapter, however, electricity is playing a major role. A confluence of factors have helped spur the need for more generation, which in ...

DNS as critical infrastructure, the energy system case study

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 12, 2014)

Modern critical infrastructures (e.g., power plants, energy grids, oil pipelines, etc.), make nowadays extensive use of information and communication technologies (ICT). As a direct consequence their exposure to cyber–attacks is becoming a matter of public security. In this paper, we analyse a particular infrastructure, rarely considered as ...

Need is real for risk assessments of energy infrastructure

by ABS Consulting  (Apr. 1, 2007)

Damage to fixed and floating structures, pipelines, onshore terminals and refineries during the past few hurricane seasons has reinforced the need to develop accurate risk assessments not only to determine overall risks for particular operators but also to identify the components of that risk so that appropriate mitigations can be undertaken. ...

New energy infrastructure development in the Asia-Pacific region

by Inderscience Publishers  (Feb. 12, 2004)

The paper analyses the current status and future development of energy infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific region, which is considered as a precondition for regional economic growth. In particular, emphasis is given to natural gas, oil, coal and electricity. The paper includes a description of opportunities for regional energy trade and ...

Transition of energy infrastructures: modelling the Brazilian case

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 5, 2009)

Triggered by the distress around climate change and security of supply, European countries struggle to diversify their energy portfolio while producing less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, favouring a transition to avoid a system collapse. However, this situation is not new. Thirty years ago, prompted by two consecutive oil crises, Brazil started ...

How climate change impacts America’s energy infrastructure

by World Resources Institute WRI  (Feb. 5, 2013)

As we’ve seen recently with Hurricane Sandy, epic drought, and wildfires, climate change visibly impacts lives and livelihoods throughout ...

Agent-based modelling of energy infrastructure transitions

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jan. 21, 2010)

Shaping energy transitions not only requires technical system innovation and redesign but also new policies, regulations, Research and Development (R&D) and investment strategies – a transition assemblage. Transition management thus equates to designing and implementing such an assemblage. Agent-Based Models (ABMs) may be used for ex-ante ...

A measurement infrastructure for sustainable manufacturing

by Inderscience Publishers  (Aug. 30, 2011)

Global resource degradation, climate change, and environmental pollution are worsening due to increasing globalised industrialisation. Manufacturing industries have thus been put under pressure to cope with these problems while maintaining competitiveness. Sustainable manufacturing has been proposed to meet these challenges. The measurement of ...
