  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • Bottom–up monitoring of municipal energy and climate policy: more than an alternative to top–down approaches?

    Policy evaluation is widely considered important for assessing policies for effectiveness and impact. Municipalities are among the political actors implementing energy and climate policy. Yet, few municipalities have introduced adequate instruments to monitor the effectiveness of their actions. Often, municipal actors consider local greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories to be sufficient to monitor the ...

  • European regulation of standby energy consumption: the case of LCD-TVs and TFT-monitors

    This paper describes an example of a regulatory sustainability impact assessment that relates to energy saving and climate protection: recently the European Union has adopted a framework directive on requirements of the ecodesign of Energy-using Products (EuP). An implementing measure on standby energy consumption based on this directive is expected in 2008. Manufacturers of LCD-TVs and ...

  • Solar energy landfill caps

    Things weren’t going well at the Erewhon Landfill. It was time to close the facility, and there was no soil left onsite for construction of the cap. Erewhon was a County facility, and the money available for 30 years of post-closure gas monitoring, groundwater sampling and reporting, erosion repairs and maintenance of a grass cover was sorely needed elsewhere. The landfill manager recalled ...

  • The whey to renewable energy

    When Tom Wilson with the Pennsylvania State University Cooperative Extension set out to study the feasibility of a community-based anaerobic digester in Mercer County, he initially analyzed processing manure collected from area dairies and food wastes gathered from the local college, nearby prisons and industrial food processors. But the economics of transporting the materials just did not make ...

  • Solar/wind power for noise monitoring terminals

    Solar Power Solutions A noise monitoring terminal’s (NMT) low power consumption and its ability to operate fully without power hungry cooling and heating units inside its enclosure mean that it is suitable for power from solar panels. The NMT may be continuously powered by battery which in turn is kept charged via solar energy. This solution is most appropriate in areas where there ...

  • Unmanned remote and wireless CDM monitoring case study

    Remote and wireless monitoring technology to meet CDM requirements is in its infancy in Europe. Carbon trading is driving it globally, especially in North and South America. That experience and technology is now finding a demand in Europe and Asia in landfill, biogas from food and animal waste in digesters and water treatment sludge digestion. Methane recovery from landfill and anaerobic ...

  • On the application of miniSoDAR technology to wind energy

    Introduction In the late 1990’s wind turbines with nacelle heights exceeding 60 meters were introduced to the wind energy community. Initially, wind prospecting and siting studies continued to use 50-meter wind towers and extrapolate the measurement to the nacelle heights. It was quickly determined that this approach was not sufficient for the placement of these tall turbines. The next ...

  • Clean energy technologies will create waste

    The birth of mitigating our dependency on oil and coal is here. We are rapidly developing energy saving and renewable-energy solutions that are about to transform our lives for the better, bringing a new era of limiting our dependency on fossil fuel, and creating less wastes when generating electricity. But inevitably through this period we will create other wastes, some hazardous. These changes ...

  • Prospering with the New ISO Energy Standards

    According to the USEPA, energy use in commercial and industrial buildings costs U.S. companies about $200 billion per year. And for many businesses, energy costs (with unit prices rising every year) are among their largest expenses. Therefore, the direct financial benefits of reducing energy use should drive all companies – even non-“smoke stack” facilities – to establish ...


  • Cool energy saving: how to cut energy waste from refrigeration and chilling

    With an ongoing focus on energy and carbon management and cutting costs, the FMCG sector has a need to achieve energy savings, and refrigeration and chilling is the perfect place to focus.
