  • Corporate sustainability: A guide to measuring and improving energy efficiencies

    As environmental scrutiny of global industries continues to grow, governments are seeking to impose energy efficiency targets on companies in order to comply with new directives. One solution is to encourage energy suppliers to become energy service companies, who work with customers to identify potential savings and share the benefits this delivers. For the global food processing industry, this ...

  • Renewable energy in Europe 2017: recent growth and knock-on effects

    Addressing climate change requires a globally coordinated, long-term response across all economic sectors. The 2015 Paris Agreement provides the framework for limiting global warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and for pursuing efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Early in this process, the European Union has adopted ambitious and binding climate and energy ...

  • Why Are CHP Closing All Over The World?

    Burning of coal nowadays has become a big problem. The main reason for this is a rapid increase of mankind. So, China burns half of coal in the world. Since 2000 the share of coal in world energy production has increased from 25 to 30%, and the Chinese economy is responsible for 82% of this growth. In Beijing, it is customary to use ...

  • Compactor Force and Energy Measurements

    Two hand-operated compactors (a vibrating plate compactor and a rammer compactor) were instrumented to measure the dynamic contact force and energy transfer between compactor and soil. The instrumentation schemes, data acquisition techniques, and data reduction methods are described. The instrumented compactors were operated on two soils: a moist, silty sand and a dry, clean fine sand. The ...

  • Measuring Energy and Environmental Success: Metrics!

    February 22, 2011 I recently attended a local environmental conference and a senior manager from a local company gave a stirring talk about the recent investments and upgrades made at her facility to improve sustainability and energy efficiency, including upgrading their boilers and other “roll up your sleeves” strategies. She mentioned that her company noticed significant reductions ...


  • Measurement matters

    The following article highlights some of the latest developments within the Energy Institute’s Hydrocarbon Management Committee (HMC), which produces guidance documents covering petroleum quantity and quality issues. The most significant news over the past few months is that the Energy Institute (EI), through the British Standards Institution, has been awarded the Secretariat of the ISO ...

  • Measurement uncertainty

    The IAEA/WHO Network, through Secondary Standards Dosimetry Laboratories (SSDLs) designated by the Member States, provides a direct linkage of national dosimetry standards to the international measurement system (SI, for Système International). Through the proper calibration of field instruments by the SSDLs, these measurements are traceable to the Primary Standards Dosimetry Laboratories (PSDLs) ...

  • Noise Measurement

    Definitions Threshold and criterion levels The threshold level is the A-weighted sound level at which a personal noise dosimeter begins to integrate noise into a measured exposure. For example, if the threshold level on a sound level meter is set at 80 decibels (dB), it will capture and integrate into the computation of dose all noise in the employee's hearing zone that equals or exceeds 80 dB. ...


  • Evaluation of Energy Conservation Measures for Wastewater Treatment Facilities

    This technical document will assist municipal utility owners and operators in finding information on cost-effective energy management and energy conservation measurers (ECMs) and technologies for reducing total energy usage in their wastewater treatment facilities.  The document presents technical and cost information about energy management and cost-effective energy conservation measurers ...

  • From compliance to measuring the actual energy use of a building

    Looking in greater detail at energy consumption has begun to show that buildings often fall short of targeted performance. One reason for this is a disconnection between design, procurement and operation of a building. Compliance calculations do not fully address factors relating to building occupation and operation, with EPC effectively leaving occupants out of the equation, although they ...

  • Verification of wind energy related measurements with a SODAR system

    Abstract Complex terrain and growing wind energy converters (WEC) in wind parks generate increasing interest in determining wind profiles and turbulence besides the general forecast of annual energy production. Increasing hub heights and growing rotor diameters of advanced WEC make SODAR systems a valuable alternative to meteorological towers. SODAR systems provide wind profiles as well as ...

  • Spain implants measures to cut energy costs

    Spain will raise biofuel blending and lower both speed limits and train fares, on track to reduce energy costs and its dependence on ...

  • Measuring Greece's progress towards energy sustainability

    Energy is essential to economic and social development and improved quality of life. The European Union (EU) constitutes one of the world's largest energy consumers. The EU members include – among others – Germany and Greece, two countries with large disparities/differences in their energy systems, yet with certain similarities. The role of indicators that can measure all the future changes is ...

  • Capacity Building for Renewable Energy Promotion Policies and Measures

    Japan will undertake a training and information exchange program in cooperation with China and India to assist formulation of renewable energy promotion policies and measures in consideration of best-matched practices in both a national and local context. Training seminars are expected to be held once or twice a year, for a duration of one to two weeks, including site ...

  • Energy support measures and their impact on innovation in the renewable energy sector in Europe

    Governments support energy production and consumption in order to meet social, economic and environmental objectives, and they have been doing so for decades. In times of economic crisis, public budgets and household incomes come under pressure. At the same time, countries need to kick‑start their economies by creating new employment opportunities in emerging industries such as the ...
