  • Amassing Wind Information

    Wind is a variable resource, but not an indecipherable one. Second Wind encourages harnessing the full range of wind sensing technologies that are available today. When it comes to wind information, much attention is focused on the choice of wind measurement technology and data collection practices in wind resource assessment and project design. Right now, wind data plays a limited role in the ...


  • Weather claims and wind safety

    Anybody working in the construction industry either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world is likely to know that the weather can present us with particular hazards. While rain, ice and snow are particularly dangerous to work in, we must always be aware that the wind is also likely to make conditions unsafe, particularly for those who work at height and those who ...

  • Risk zoning in relation to risk of external events (application to IRIS design)

    The design basis for any plant and site is closely related to the effects of any postulated external events and the limitation of the plant capability to cope with accidents, that is to perform safety functions. As a prime example of an advanced reactor and Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) with enhanced safety, the International Reactor Innovative and Secure (IRIS) has been considered in this work. In ...

  • The Clean Energy Voyage

    The United Nations Climate Convention meeting in Warsaw, Poland, comes with less than two years to go for governments to deliver on their promise of a universal new agreement by 2015 - this is the time for ambition rather than caution to define the international climate negotiations. We have in some ways been here before: the Copenhagen UN climate conference was also scheduled to deliver a ...

  • Canada as an Energy Superpower- A Concept Revisited

    There have been many references over the past decade calling Canada an “energy superpower”. Apart from the political debate the term has engendered, many see the label more as a marketing ploy than as a statement of reality. There is no doubting Canada is a ‘super producer’ of energy, ranking among the five largest energy producers in the world, behind China, the United ...

  • High Penetrations of Renewable Energy for Island Grids

    Island grids represent an overlooked opportunity for renewable power. In addition to geographical islands there are also many electrical islands, such as remote locations throughout the world, where interconnections with neighboring grids are not a practical option. Due to transportation issues and the lack of economies of scale, these grids typically rely on liquid fuel derived from petroleum. ...

  • Oil Chiefs Clash over Energy and Climate

    Conflicting messages about how the oil industry should respond to climate change and manage its reputation have been sent out by the heads of three oil majors - ExxonMobil, Shell and ChevronTexaco. None foresees a challenge to the supremacy of oil and gas for the next three decades - but on many other issues the transatlantic rift runs deep. ExxonMobil remains the target for a global campaign by ...

  • Renewable Energy Projects on Contaminated Property: Managing The Risks

    Managing brownfields risks requires complex technical and legal analysis. Analyzing risks in renewable energy projects is equally complex. Both projects involve several contracts that must be integrated and made consistent with each other.
