Through partnership with IDAEA-CSIC two AQMesh pods were co-located with a reference station and scaled locally in Barcelona (ref. Advanced user mode), providing R2 of 0.97 for NO and 0.89 for NO2. One pod was then moved to a second reference point within the city to establish repeatability of results using the scaling factors derived from the first reference. This resulted in a correlation of 0.98 for NO, and 0.86 for NO2. This trial shows that a high degree of air quality monitoring accuracy can be achieved through local scaling and this accuracy is maintained when AQMesh is then used to monitor independently in new locations.
Energy Department Analysis: Loan Guarantee Program Launched Utility-Scale Photovoltaic Solar Market in the United States
October 17, 2016 --The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Loan Programs Office (LPO) today (10/14) releasednew numberson how the Obama Administration's early support for solar photovoltaic (PV) projects led to a massive expansion of large-scale solar farms. According to today's update to a2015 report, the loans provided by DOE to the first five utility-scale solar PV projects larger than 100 megawatts in the United States helped demonstrate the technology's success to the market and led to the private financing of...

Landfill and Biogas gas monitoring
Landfill and biogas provide a source of readily available and renewable energy. However, as a source of energy care has to be taken to understand and quantify impurities in the raw gas that can have an effect on either the amount of energy products, or contaminants that can foul the energy generators (siloxanes). ETG can provide analysis solutions to qualify and quantify these impurities. Gas engines from landfill have a high proportion of formaldehyde emissions, and just as our analyser can provide a solution...
METTLER TOLEDO Offers Scientists Resources on Heat Transfer, Scale-up, and Mixing
New collaborative online resources covering heat transfer and scale-up as well as mass transfer to control the reaction rate are now available to help scientists working in process development and scale-up. METTLER TOLEDO has announced the availability of new web-based resources focused on heat transfer and scale-up and mass transfer to control the reaction rate. Addressing common challenges for chemists and engineers working in process development in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries, the new...
First Tesla Grid-Scale Powerpacks Installed in Europe
Camborne Energy Storage,a UK-based developer of large-scale energy storage projects, has announced it is installing the first grid-scale Tesla Powerpacks in Europe. With the recent arrival of the batteries to a site in Somerset, Camborne is co-locating them with a ground mounted solar PV site.The combined solar and battery installation has the capacity to provide power for over 500 homes. Camborne has selected this design to demonstrate the ability to provide a balanced grid and grow its ambitions for pioneering...
