  • Are wind turbines economically viable in Britain?

    If Britain establishes wind energy as their main energy source, they will be able to create a large number of new job opportunities. This can provide a huge influx of job opportunities in the short run since the implementation of wind turbines require a lot of manpower. Moreover, the maintenance of these wind farms can give life to a considerable amount of sustainable jobs. Monitoring the wind ...

  • How to assess the effectiveness of energy management processes in water supply systems

    The main objectives that generally motivate the implementation of energy management strategies, suggestions of possible assessment criteria and corresponding performance measures are presented in a systematic way. A methodology based on the hydraulic energy balance along water pipe systems and four performance indices to assess energy efficiency is established. This methodology is applied to a ...

  • Energy recovery potential using micro hydropower in water supply networks in the UK and Ireland

    The supply and treatment of water is a highly energy intensive process, resulting in large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions as well as incurring large economic costs. Both governments and water service providers worldwide recognise the need for more sustainable water supply systems. In recent years, the use of hydropower turbines within water supply networks has been shown as a viable option ...

  • Pump as turbine implementation in a dynamic numerical model: cost analysis for energy recovery in water distribution network

    In complex systems characterized by the presence of private tanks and water scarcity conditions, water managers usually apply intermittent distribution, trying to reduce the water volumes supplied to the users and pipe leakages, or use pressure reduction valves for controlling pressure in the network. The application of pumps as turbines (PATs) appears as an alternative and sustainable solution ...

  • Clean power in water supply systems as a sustainable solution: from planning to practical implementation

    Energy efficiency and renewable energy sources have drawn a greater attention by EU, in particular for climate change policies as it can substantially cut down CO2 emissions to meet EU environmental obligations. It is well established that in drinking pipe systems Pressure Reducing Valves (PRV) are used as a mean for excess energy dissipation for the purpose of pressure control. This type of ...

  • Invasion of the non-indigenous nuisance mussel, Limnoperna fortunei, into water supply facilities in Japan

    The aquatic nuisance mussel, Limnoperna fortunei, arrived in Japan before 1987 possibly with the Asian clam imported as food from mainland China. Now the mussel’s distribution has spread to two river systems in central Japan. Water authorities reported several cases of damage caused by L. fortunei. Most cases of damage were caused by dead mussels clogging small diameter pipes for raw water ...

  • Solar hot water system

    Solar hot water systems (e.g. residential) do not produce steam, for example. Thus, solar hot water systems cannot push a steam turbine and will not generate electrical power. Solar hot water systems are used for heating and hot water requirements, not electrical power. If this is offsetting electrical hot water or electrical heat, then these are more like 'negawatts' than Terawatts. Steam ...

  • Water and wastewater projects in Jordan

    About 70% of Jordan has an annual rainfall of less then 100 mm. The population and water demand have increased during the last years and the groundwater resources are in danger of drying out. As the population continuous to grow it is necessary to find new resources to meet future demands of water for municipal, industrial and irrigation purposes. The two projects, As-Samra and Disi, aims to ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy and Water Production

    Introduction The scarcity of potable water is a growing problem worldwide, particularly in arid regions and among developing countries. Compounding this problem is the increasing contamination of freshwater sources, which comprise only about 2.5% of all water on Earth. Of this small portion, only 0.5% of the total fresh water available is found in easily accessible sources such as ...
