Hydrogen energy has been used extensively in the aerospace industry since the 1960s; today the technology is coming back to Earth. New innovations and cost reductions are once again building hype for hydrogen, as new data supports market based solutions. This could be the tipping point in a clean energy revolution? Verde LLC gives a new take on an old tale.
Are you wasting the cashback potential of energy audits?
If the government offered your business £20 cashback on every £100 you spent on energy, you would probably head for the front of the queue. Yet that`s exactly the sort of money saving opportunity an energy audit can deliver. The Carbon Trust`s analysis of a sample of recent ESOS energy savings opportunities assessments showed that an average cost reduction of 20% was achievable through cost-effective energy saving measures. On an average energy spend of £1.8m, this translates into potential...

Air Conditioning That`s Out of This World
New materials enhance the cooling effects from outer space to reduce energy use in small- to medium-sized buildings Reducing air conditioning energy use by using new materials to enhance the cooling effects from outer space may not be such a far-out idea. In a simulation study using DOE`sEnergy Plus softwareand new selective emittance material technology developed at Stanford University, PNNL researchers found that daytime radiative cooling—the physical process by which an object loses heat to another...
