  • How to make top-down and bottom-up sustainability converge

    Fits and starts are all too common in the sustainability world. One year you have budget for initiatives; the next you don’t. Management hails cost savings on individual projects, but they miss the big picture and fail to link progress across departmental boundaries. Bottom-up progress and top-down directives pass each other like proverbial ships in the night. But it doesn’t have to ...

  • 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 ...

  • Improving simulator training of NPP personnel

    It is common practice to have a full-scope training simulator for a specific plant or for a group of similar plants. However, use of a Full-Scope Simulator (FSS) for training is not always effective. It becomes more effective if a modular training scheme and more simple simulators are used for pre-FSS training.Keywords: NPP personnel training, simulator training, full-scope simulators, nuclear ...

  • Energy Security

    Renewable & Clean Energy Solutions to Secure Energy Independence from Foreign Oil. FOREIGN OIL: As imports grow and world prices rise, the amount of money we send to foreign nations every year is soaring. At current oil prices, we will send $700 billion dollars out of the country this year alone — that’s four times the annual cost of the ...

  • Footwear to Energy

    In developing countries within South East Asia, ever-depleting landfill space, fast-growing populations and an increasing need for more concrete to build, are just some of the factors that make for a compelling alternative fuel production argument. But to what extent is a lack of waste infrastructure holding such countries back? Is legislation the missing ingredient? Or do global brands need to ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...
