  • Thoroughly modern installers keep on industry trend

    The ErP Directive, through its various iterations since 2009, not only places high demands on the efficiency levels of a wide range of heating products, and especially hot water storage in our homes, but also on installers to communicate the benefits of greater energy efficiency to their customers. If the target to reduce energy use by 20% by 2020 is remotely realistic, not only has product ...

  • What is a Spectrometer?

    The characteristics of a white LED light differs greatly, when compared to a yellow CFL. Without any special tools, one can see that the LED emits a clear white color, while the CFL generates yellow light. Going one step further, using a spectrometer, one will be able to “dissect” the light sources and see that they are composed of other colors in the visible light spectrum, such as ...

  • New ways for Metal Recycling

    REWAVE XRF 3-way-sorting in innovative  “Free-Fall”-design Recycling of metal and aluminium knows no limits because it can be remelted as scrap indefinitely. Metals, however have to be separated from non-metallic impurities, and different metals have to be sorted in pure fractions to be used as secondary raw materials substituting primary resources. Especially when it ...

  • Revisiting rural energy analysis

    Rural energy planning is characterised by matching, as far as possible, the available local energy supply with various energy end-uses. For this matching, decision-makers have to consider several issues, such as cost, technology, sustainability and equity. These objectives are conflicting and, therefore, it is difficult to find an optimised solution. Therefore, such problems should be analysed by ...

  • Waste to Energy Analysis

    The manufacturing of SRF in a single pass is not a new concept. However, with the environmental efficacy of alternative fuel production under seemingly increasing scrutiny, a one-step process is of growing importance, believes Peter Streinik, Head of Business Unit Waste at UNTHA. There can be no disputing that alternative fuel production is being increasingly acknowledged as a valuable part of ...

  • The regional analysis of energy consumption and energy resources in China

    In recent years, issues relating to Chinese energy supply and consumption have drawn worldwide attention. The Chinese government maintains that the solution to energy demand issues should be resolved by improving domestic supply; but the regional availability of energy is irregular across China. The regional consumption and composition of energy supply are analysed in this paper and suggestions ...

  • Global Renewable Energy Market Analysis

        Europe, previously the largest renewable energy market in the world for many years, has recently been overtaken by Asia-Pacific. Under the European Union’s (EU) Renewables Directive, member states are committed to national targets that increase the share of renewable energy in their consumption by 2020. In October 2014, the EU adopted climate conservation ...

  • Energy and exergy analysis of solar combisystems

  • Spatial model for wood energy analysis

    Fuelwood is one of the major fuels for rural households and cottage industries in developing countries. Most of the fuelwood consumed in rural areas come from nearby forests. The estimates on the availability of fuelwood are based on gross national estimates and may not reflect the local conditions. As a result, planning for wood energy supply and consumption becomes an ad hoc process. In this ...

  • Energy analysis in industrial districts: a statistics-based approach

    Considering the particular structure of the Italian productive system, characterised by local concentration of a great number of small and medium-sized enterprises in industrial districts, this study aims at developing a "district-oriented" approach to energy analysis. A combination of statistical methods is proposed in order to describe similarities, variability and relations among different ...

  • Integrated appraisal of renewable energy strategies: a CGE analysis

    The preparation, implementation, coordination and verification of policy measures is a complex and difficult process. This paper presents the first results of an empirical ex-ante analysis which evaluates the effects of renewable energy policies on the Polish bioenergy sector applying an Applied General Equilibrium model. The empirical results suggest that the Polish bioenergy sector benefits ...

  • Analysis of buildings' energy consumption by means of exergy method

    Among the objectives of the Directive 2002/91/EC and of the Council "Energy performance of buildings", Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD) the energy certification of buildings represents a fundamental role. The method here described starts from the LowEX tool, previously developed in the IEA ECBCS Annex 37 framework. By using the exergy approach, new (non-economic) indices could be ...
