  • Caltech working to solve the world`s energy problems with the help of inVia

    Fossil fuels are the world's main fuel source for transportation, heating and generating electricity. As a by-product, high levels of CO2 are released into the atmosphere. With the drive for sustainable energy production, a method that generates easily-stored fuel from sunlight—and absorbs CO2—is a very attractive proposition. The California Institute of Technology ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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

    Solar combisystem is a hot–topic since 1998 by the help of broad participation TASK–26 project in Europa and USA. The aim of this study is to determine energetic and exergetic analysis results of implemented solar combisystem in Turkey. Experimental system is built up and internal working parameters, external system parameters are measured between 1 and 31 January 2011. Totally, 544 Wh/day ...

  • 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 ...
