  • Biogas in Asia

    The development of biogas production and monitoring has had many twists and turns, from its early days in Germany to the heady days of support through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).   The fall in the price of carbon credits, which rewarded reduction in emissions of methane (CH4) - a potent greenhouse gas - and use of methane from waste as renewable energy, has hit Asia ...

  • Smart Grid needs a Facebook

    We think we know how smart grid technology will change the utility industry. But do we really? Take a look at this documentary made in 1969. It’s a view of how the world perceived the coming Internet (It’s also a pretty amusing look at how sexist our society still was at that point.)  ...

  • Wanted: GOLD for smart grid

    As John McDonald tells it, smart grid needs GOLD. And he’s not talking money. GOLD stands for Graduates of the Last Decade, the technology savvy, risk-taking engineers and technicians who may be among the greatest benefactors of the new smart grid movement. While most recent college graduates face dismal employment prospects, for the GOLD kids, the job ...

  • Smart Grids – The Governmental Approach

    Scott Blake Harris is the General Council for the US Department of Energy, and has recently spoken out at the NGU US summit (hosted by GDS International).   He was nominated in the position by President Barack Obama in March 2009, and was confirmed by the United States Senate in May 2009.  He focused his address on the $4 billion investment into smart grids and renewables across ...

  • The smart money is on smart grids

    In Asia, the utilities industry is growing at an incredible rate. Investments globally in the sector have lead to more available jobs, predicting the return to pre-recession levels of employment by Q1 2010. However, with such substantial growth comes opportunities which have to be managed correctly to sustain long-term development. With the world’s investors looking at Asia to see how such a ...


  • Smarter grids, appliances, and consumers

    More and more utilities are beginning to realize that building large power plants just to handle peak daily and seasonal demand is a very costly way of managing an electricity system. Existing electricity grids are typically a patchwork of local grids that are simultaneously inefficient, wasteful, and dysfunctional in that they often are unable, for example, to move electricity surpluses to areas ...

  • The Grid vs. Rooftop Solar

    The development of solar micro-grids and mini-grids in the remotest parts of Australia seems to be a rational step in the right direction economically. However, network operators all over the world are still in doubt when it comes to the vast population in urban areas adopting similar methods. The question lies with the homeowner choosing to buy the necessary power generating equipment ...

  • Smart Grid: The game

    In his best seller “Outliers,” Malcolm Gladwell shows that it is not equipment failure or storms that typically cause planes to crash, but wrong decision-making. Much the same can be said for the power grid crash that took down a large swath of the Northeast in August 2003. The emerging smart grid is supposed to make our power system more reliable. The bad news is that it also will add complexity ...

  • Googlifying the electric grid

    If you showed Alexander Graham Bell cell phone towers, he’d be stumped. But if you let Thomas Edison tinker with our electricity grid, he’d know just what to do — not because of his genius, but because electric transmission has changed little since Edison’s day. Telephone technology advanced; electricity did not. So says the Department of Energy. ...

  • A grid for subgrade stability

    With research to back up quantifiable benefits and recognized design standards, the use of geogrids may be ready for wider acceptance among North American railroads. A product with a 20-year plus track record is rarely referred to as "new." However, this is a label those involved with geogrids find themselves tagged with when it comes to the prod¬uct's use on North American railroads. While ...

  • Grid integration of renewables in Egypt

    Integration of large Amounts of Renewable Electricity in the Egyptian Energy Grid - Capacity Building for Management and Engineer-Technical Level (Egypt-RE-Grid). The electricity sector of the Arab Republic of Egypt produces large amounts of electricity through thermal and hydroelectric power stations. Egypt has diminishing proven oil reserves and declining production. Natural gas production is ...

  • The Economics of Grid defection

    Distributed electricity generation, especially solar PV, is rapidly spreading and getting much cheaper. Distributed electricity storage is doing the same, thanks largely to mass production of batteries for electric vehicles. Solar power is already starting to erode some utilities' sales and revenues. But what happens when solar and batteries join forces? Together they can make the electric grid ...

  • Cleaning biogas with bacteria

    Organic materials added to an anaerobic digester commonly contain sulphur components. During the anaerobic digestion process, the sulphur is converted into hydrogen sulphide (H2S), which is absorbed by the biogas. When the biogas produced in an AD plant goes on to be combusted in a gas engine or boiler, the H2S will give off sulphur dioxide (SO2) and sulphuric acid ...
