  • Harnessing the Sun`s Energy for Water and Space Heating

    The pace of solar energy development is accelerating as the installation of rooftop solar water heaters takes off. Unlike solar photovoltaic (PV) panels that convert solar radiation into electricity, these "solar thermal collectors" use the sun's energy to heat water, space, or both. China had an estimated 168 million square meters (1.8 billion square feet) of rooftop solar thermal collectors ...

  • Good Practice for Delivering Flood-Related Information to the General Public

    A. Context of the work In January 2005, the members of the Exchange Circle on Flood Forecasting (EXCIFF) identified the main subjects of interest for the exchange of experiences and information on flood forecasting. It was identified that one of the most important issues in flood warning is the way the general public (GP) is informed about flood events. No matter how good and ...


  • Biogas production and potential from U.S. Wastewater Treatment

    How many wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) have anaerobic digestion? How many are utilizing the biogas? What percentage of these facilities are feeding additional substrates into their digesters? How is the biogas being used — is it flared, used to drive process machinery, heat the digester, or injected into a natural gas pipeline? These are some of the questions asked of the ...
