The climatic change and the increase of the demand have made of the water and energy saving one of the main worldwide objectives. AZUD has joined this tendency not only working to maximize the saving of water, but also of energy.
Increasing ambition for renewable heating and cooling: Is the current energy modelling enough?
EGEC has released a policy paper assessing the current European Commission’s energy modellingfor heating and cooling, used to generate forecasts that serve as basis for policy proposals and policy making. The resulting analysis shows a lack of robustness in the Commission’s forecasts for the heating and cooling sector, which translates in a lack of ambition, in the initial Commission’s proposal, for the future of the renewable heating and cooling (RES-HC) sector. The decarbonisation of the...
Tracking clean energy progress
Each year, the IEA’s Tracking Clean Energy Progress (TCEP) report examines developments across a range of clean energy sectors and technologies. The TCEP uses benchmarks for 2025 as modelled in Energy Technology Perspectives 2017, as well as the milestones identified in the IEA Technology Roadmaps. Measuring against these benchmarks provides an assessment of whether technologies, energy savings and emissions reduction measures are on track to achieve the longer-term emissions objectives by 2060. The report...
Improving Chiller Energy Efficiency Through Automatic Tube Cleaning System Technology
In this paper, solutions for improving chiller energy efficiency by reducing fouling of shell and tube heat exchangers are discussed. Sponge-ball type automatic tube cleaning system technology is introduced and discussed as a solution for improving chiller energy efficiency and tube cleaning system operating principles are presented.Multiple case studies are provided demonstrating the positive impacts of tube cleaning system technology implementation INTRODUCTIONShell and tube condensers and heat exchangers are...
Closing The California Clean Energy Divide
Reducing Electric Bills in Affordable Multifamily Rental Housing with Solar+Storage Executive Summary BATTERY STORAGE IS EMERGING AS AN effective new strategy for reducing electricity costs for affordable multifamily rental housing in California. Battery storage systems not only provide economic returns today, they can also preserve the value of solar in an evolving policy and regulatory environment. Because batteries empower owners of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to take control of the energy they produce...
Japan - Floating to a Clean Energy Future
A country struck by disaster harnesses the power of ocean winds to set sail for a brighter, greener future Nearly 16,000 people were killed when a 9.0 earthquake triggered a tsunami that crashed into the east coast of Japan five years ago. The 30 foot wall of cold, black water wiped out entire towns and villages and triggered one of the world`s worst nuclear disasters. The nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant forced the government to take all 48 of the country`s nuclear reactors offline. At a...
