  • 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 ...

  • Captive power plant efficiency for Africa

    Power distribution networks across Africa are notoriously unreliable. Frequent power interruptions can be enormously costly for many of the continent’s factories. Not only do power outages disrupt production batches, they can also damage or reduce the life of important plant components such as kilns. This too has a knock-on effect on wider the country’s gross domestic product – ...

  • Carbon tax and energy resource in Indian power sector

    Abstract: Global warming is a universal problem nowadays. The recent United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen was partially successful because all participating countries realised the damages caused by greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and promise to mitigate in the future course of time. India has also promised to reduce 20% to 25% of these emissions up to the year 2020. To implement ...

  • Green capitalism: negative carbon and the green power fund

    This paper discusses the challenges and opportunities created for the world by the Kyoto protocol and the creation based on international law of a global market for carbon emissions trading, in particular, the significance of the clean development mechanism (CDM). The projects funded by CDM and paid for from the carbon market's funds have already achieved a real impact, they have decreased carbon ...

  • Addressing carbon pollution from power plants is vital for avoiding catastrophic climate change

    Future U.S. power suppliers will need to limit their carbon pollution, thanks to new standards announced today by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The proposed emissions standards for new power plants are ...

  • A novel cogeneration cycle based on a recompression supercritical carbon dioxide cycle for waste heat recovery in nuclear power plants

    In this study, a novel cogeneration cycle based on the recompression S–CO2 Brayton cycle is proposed, analysed and optimised thermodynamically to utilise the waste heat from a nuclear power plant. The cycle was constructed theoretically on the basis of a transcritical CO2 power cycle and a LiBr/H ...

  • Demands on thermal power plants in the liberalised energy market

    In the liberalised energy market, a diversified set ("mix") of power plants will be needed. By investigating present and anticipated future criteria in detail, available technologies and outlines of further development are identified and discussed. Among them, concepts for efficiency-optimised base load plants as well as units with an improved cycling operation capability are both attributed to a ...

  • Role of primary sedimentation on plant-wide energy recovery and carbon footprint

    The goal of this paper is to show the effect of primary sedimentation on the chemical oxygen demand (COD) and solids fractionation and consequently on the carbonaceous and energy footprints of wastewater treatment processes. Using a simple rational procedure for COD and solids fraction quantification, we quantify the effects of varying fractions on CO2 and CO2-equivalent mass flows, ...
