  • Nitrogen Trifluoride now required in GHG protocol greenhouse gas emissions inventories

    Scientific understanding of the chemicals that contribute to climate change is constantly improving. So, too, is the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP), as we work to keep abreast of such advances and ensure that they are reflected in our tools and standards. One recent example concerns the greenhouse gas (GHG) nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), a chemical that is released ...

  • Structure-preserving dynamical model and distributed stabilisation of electricity infrastructures with renewable energy resources

    This paper introduces a module-based approach to modelling and controlling electricity infrastructure with a high penetration of distributed renewable energy resources. Each energy-converting component is defined as a module and is represented in terms of its local variables and the interaction variables between the module and the transmission network. The structure of the electricity ...

  • Resourcing for climate change

    Climate change is scientifically, widely recognised to be happening as a result of the anthropogenic input of greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere. Consequently we need to look at adaptation and mitigation to limit the social, environmental and economic impacts. Allen & York are market leading environmental recruitment specialists with 15 years experience and an expanding Energy team ...


  • Spectral distribution of uv light during aging of medium pressure UV lamps

    As part of a project to validate a UV reactor for disinfection of drinking water, the germicidal output of four medium pressure lamps housed in a continuously operating reactor was followed as a function of time. Spectra were measured monthly and were used in conjunction with radiometer readings to calculate germicidal fluence rates (using DNA absorbance weighting) at the radiometer sensor ...

  • Planning: a Roadblock to Renewable Energy in the UK

    Abstract: This article considers the planning system as one of the major roadblocks to renewable energy projects and looks at illustrative examples of renewable energy projects that have been held up in this system. It also analyses some of the recent measures put forward to promote renewable energy projects and addresses the shortcomings in the planning system. ...
