  • Greenhouse Gas: You can`t manage what you can`t measure

    The world is readying itself for greenhouse gas (GHG) regulation coming with the next US administration. Because GHGs have so far not been regulated, the imposition of restrictions on emissions has the potential to drive a fundamental restructuring of our carbon-based economy. If analysts are correct, the “right” to emit GHGs, which today is “free” in the United States, could cost industry up to ...

  • High voltage switchgear SF6 maintenance – Case Study

    Just like the main circuit breaker in your home, city grids have main on/off switches called switchgears. When these high voltage switchgears open or close, huge "lightning-like" arcs of electricity are created. If not maintained correctly, these sparks can causewidespread power outages and pose a safety risk. To avoid these dangerous sparks, power companies have traditionally filled the sealed ...
