  • Symphony Of The Microgrid At An Urban University

    Perched on the wind-sculpted bluffs above the Pacific Ocean, the University of California San Diego (UCSD) is one of the world’s leading research universities, with an average R&D budget of $1 billion in each of the last three years. Research includes over 50 years of investigating climate change at UCSD’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography, making it no surprise that the ...

  • The Emerging Power of Microgrids

    Over many decades, the centralized power grid — a one-way flow of electricity, generated by large, remote power plants and distributed over miles of transmission lines to homes and businesses — succeeded in delivering electricity across continents to billions. But in recent years the system’s shortcomings have become increasingly ...

  • Leveraging microgrids in waste-to-energy applications

    What do the waste-to-energy and real estate sectors have in common? In both, location is the key factor influencing the bottom line. Although waste-to-energy conversion technologies continue to improve their efficiency, energy will always be worth more when it is in the right location. With rising energy costs and increasing concern over electric power reliability and sustainability, the ...

  • Community-coupled microgrids for the implementation of a smart grid in Tunisia

    Smart grids are based on the use of ICT in order to optimise the quality and the cost of electricity generation, transport and distribution. Developing countries try to upgrade their electric grids to meet the evolving needs of the end consumers and face the energy challenge. The study of smart grid instauration in such countries must consider the disparity in terms of ICT infrastructures across ...

  • Feasibility Study and Development of Smart Energy Solution Using Various Renewable Energies

    A feasibility study on the development of independent electricity supply systems entitled, “Feasibility Study and Development of Smart Energy Solution Using Various Renewable Energies” will facilitate integration of distributed region, elected Distributed Generators (DG) into smart energy solutions in Partner countries. This will allow several different DGs to be operated as a microgrid that can ...

  • Electric vehicles powering communities through natural disasters

    Mass power outages and blackouts have always been of great concern during and after natural disasters. In addition to the devastation that can occur from flooding, collapsed buildings, and disruptions to basic infrastructure, the absence of electricity can shut down basic communications systems, adding to the anxieties of those most critically affected. While much discussion revolves around what ...

  • Developing Decentralised Distributed Generation in Africa

    Many countries in the developed world created power generation networks based upon large centralised power generation stations with significant investment in power transmission and distribution networks. From the African context this has not happened yet there is a huge need to increase power generation capacity. The thought of addressing this through a small number of large gas, ...
