  • The Rationale for Accelerating Regionally Focused Climate Intervention Research

    Abstract Ten years ago, Paul Crutzen asked whether the time had come to consider undertaking research into intentionally intervening in the climate system so that it might be considered a policy option comparable to reducing emissions for limiting human-induced climate change. Crutzen’s article pointed out how little progress had been made in reducing emissions and suggested that ...

  • ALBANISA Oil Spill Equipment Setup - Case Study

    As a part of the Bolivarian Alliance for the People of Our America (acronym in Spanish: ALBA), Nicaragua has received funds to build a new oil hub in the Caribbean. The hub will be available for oil companies in order to store their products before reaching its final destination. By doing that the profit will be increased as the costs for transportion is reduced. The updated environmental ...

  • Importance of Inspecting Reservoirs

    Inspecting Reservoirs – what is the importance of them, why they are inspected, and how ROVs help pave the way for low-cost, regular maintenance. What is a Reservoir? Deriving from the French word réservoir meaning “storehouse,” a reservoir is exactly that – a storage place for water. More often than not, these bodies of water are ...

  • Proton Power 25m3 DIY Syngas Storage

    Based in Tennessee USA Proton Power Inc. (PPI) was founded by 2 remarkable entrepreneurs with previous successes in such diverse areas as aircraft brakes and neutron absorbers (don’t ask!). With this kind of history we knew their requirement was going to be beyond our usual scope. We weren’t wrong - they requested a 25m3 Base gas holder in which to store a syngas mixture with high ...

  • Solarthermal parabolic trough power plants with integrated storage capacity

    Parabolic trough power plants use concentrated direct insulation for steam generation in a Rankine cycle. The fundamentals for direct steam generation in parabolic troughs have been developed in recent years, the feasibility was successfully demonstrated at a solar powered test facility reaching steam temperatures of 400°C at a maximum pressure of 100 bar. Important components for the accelerated ...

  • Underground storage tanks case study

    MacDill Air Force Base A Phase II environmental site assessment was conducted at a military base in the southeastern United States. As part of the ESA, GeoView was contracted to perform the geophysical site assessment. The purpose of the geophysical investigation was to determine the presence and location of any underground storage tanks that may be buried within the boundaries of the ...

  • We don’t want energy storage

    Claiming that we don’t want energy storage seems like a provocative thing to say. For example, the Energy Institute (EI)’s 2015 Energy Barometer report, a survey of professionals in the energy industry, rated storage as the area most in need of innovation. My point isn’t that energy storage isn’t ...

  • Air systems at a food storage warehouse

    This is a treatment of air systems at a warehouse that stores and redistributes food for 7-Eleven. The customer observed a reduction in electricity bills. However, what was more impressive and valuable for the customer is that the space cooled faster because the air was colder (but not ice cold!). This colder air meant the warehouse could process more food in a day. That resulted in increased ...

  • Automotive Manufacturers Conquer the Storage Market

    At least since the end of April, when Tesla introduced its Powerwall, everyone seems to be talking about the market for stationary battery-storage systems. At any rate, it was the dominant topic at Intersolar. I asked Volker Wachenfeld, an SMA expert in storage technology, about his assessment of the market and SMA’s plans for battery-storage systems going forward. - See more at: ...

  • Influence of streamer-to-glow transition mode on the NO removal by an inductive energy storage type pulse power generator

    Influence of streamer-to-glow transition on NO removal from a simulated diesel exhaust gas is described in this paper. A coaxial cylinder nonthermal plasma reactor was driven by an inductive energy storage pulse power generator employing a fast recovery diode as semiconductor opening switch. The NO removal increased with input energy into the reactor. The energy efficiency for 30% NO removal was ...

  • Power conditioning of an uncontrolled micro-hydroturbine-driven induction generator for distributed generation using a battery energy storage system

    Distributed Generation (DG) and its interconnection to the AC power grid is a relatively new concept. DG employs small generators, which are distributed throughout the power system. The electricity is usually generated by renewable energy sources such as wind, hydro and tidal, which are intermittent in nature. These generators connected to the AC grid may lead to severe power quality problems. ...

  • Night operation of solar chimney power system using solar ponds for heat storage

    An alternative method of heat extraction from salt gradient solar ponds to solar collector is investigated with the aim of night operation for solar chimney power system. Some details of the combined power system integrated with solar ponds and solar chimney power system are also provided. Using a developed mathematical model, theoretical analyses are carried out to investigate the performance of ...

  • Regional electricity price differences due to intermittent wind power in Germany: impact of extended transmission and storage capacities

    A fast growth of installed wind power capacity has been experienced in several European countries. In Germany, notably high wind power capacities are planned in the North. If the existing transmission capacities between individual regions become insufficient, the electricity prices will differ considerably and the system operation can become unstable. It is supposed that the extension of ...

  • Dispatching of wind farms using battery energy storage

    In this paper, a STATCOM interfaced battery energy storage system (BESS) is considered for smoothing intermittent power output of a large wind farm so that it can be dispatched. The main advantage of the system is that it can inject both real power (by charging/discharging the BESS) and the reactive power to the system. The paper investigates the main design issues related to BESS – the control ...

  • The trouble with angels: carbon capture and storage hurdles and solutions

    This article examines the challenges to commercial deployment of carbon capture and storage using geologic sequestration. The authors argue that CCS will never become a reality without early federal investment in research and development, a uniform federal regulatory framework, and a framework to address the currently unknown and unquantifiable liabilities. They suggest a model similar to the ...

  • Integration of pump storage hydro with wind energy

    Renewable energy has significant advantages as it does not contribute to Greenhouse Gases (GHG). Wind energy is a renewable energy alternative that is being installed worldwide. However, wind energy is unpredictable and thus, unavailable as compared to conventional generation. The availability of wind energy compared to conventional power plants is a cause of contention. Currently, the rate of ...
