  • Climate models may be overestimating the cooling effect of wildfire aerosols

    Original story at MIT News Whether intentionally set to consume agricultural waste or naturally ignited in forests or peatlands, open-burning fires impact the global climate system in two ways which, to some extent, cancel each other out. On one hand, they generate a significant fraction of ...

  • Clarifying and measuring energy security

    A new study has clarified the concept of the popular phrase 'energy security'. It suggests that measurements of energy security for a country or area should be multi-dimensional and include figures that represent fuel prices, the diversity of the energy market and political stability. Ensuring the security of energy supply through sustainable energy initiatives is a key concern in the EU and has ...

  • Power and Energy Measurement: Worldwide Market Forecasts - First Edition

    Measuring real-time energy consumption, and adjusting power delivery at critical loads (as opposed to simple “on-off” functions), are becoming increasingly important in today’s commercial, residential and industrial environments. The ability to “fine-tune” energy usage requires sophisticated power monitoring and measurement techniques. Driven by such diverse trends ...


  • Continuous moisture measurement of biomass for better energy content data

    Moisture content is one of the fundamental parameters when deciding on biomass fuel quality as this in turn dictates energy content and price. In short, water is expensive to transport and to remove. The traditional methods of determining moisture content and bulk density almost all involve random sampling from a consignment which is not without drawbacks. The Dutch company INADCO, exhibiting for ...
