  • Cellulosic Ethanol - Next Wave Second Generation Bioethanol

    Cellulosic ethanol is a ‘Second generation’ bioethanol produced using advanced processing techniques from non edible feedstock. Cellulosic ethanol also called ‘cellanol’ is produced from biomass including waste from urban, agricultural, and forestry sources which are available in abundance. The technology is presently in the nascent stage with a total production capacity of 57.37 million liters. ...

  • Britain aims to rule the waves again

    (AXcess News) London - Britain prided itself on ruling the waves in the 19th century; they might once again in the 21st century. But not with its Navy. This time, Britain's chosen vessels are new technologies that convert the pounding of the waves and the ebbing of tides into the thrum of electricity. While still years behind other alternative-energy forms, wave and tidal power systems are ...

  • Making waves work: wave energy trials underway in Wellington

    A uniquely ‘Kiwi’ wave energy generator is harnessing the power of waves in Evans Bay Wellington. The device has been developed by Wave Energy Technology New Zealand (WET-NZ) – a partnership between the Crown Research Institutes Industrial Research Limited (IRL), and NIWA, and the Wellington power consultancy Power Projects Limited (PPL). The generator in Evans Bay is an experimental prototype. ...

  • California reacting to symptoms of heat waves

    Solar radiation including the same UV that burns our skin is causing buildings to generate extreme heat the building isn't designed, insulated or insured for says Curtis Bennett of Thermografix Consulting Corporation. Due to the fact the solar impact couldn't be seen, we are reacting to the heat symptoms with ozone depletion, significant wasted electricity, more GHG emissions, toxic emissions, ...

  • Ireland funding Wave energy technology

    Wave energy developer Carnegie Wave Energy has signed the formal funding agreement with the Irish Government's Sustainable Energy Association (SEAI) for a EUR150,000 project to evaluate potential CETO wave sites in Ireland and develop a site specific conceptual design. The project is 50% funded by the SEAI and 50% by Carnegie and forms the first phase of detailed design for a potential 5MW ...

  • New research into climate change and waves released

    Minister for Climate Change and Water, Senator Penny Wong, this week released new research to improve understanding of how climate change might affect off-shore waves and the potential impact on our coastal zones. The research investigated climatic conditions which could lead to changes in waves on Australia’s coast, including ‘extreme waves’ of around three metres or more. The available modelled ...

  • Renewable energy wave rolls across Australia

    Waves around Australia and hot rocks beneath it have the capacity to power Australia into a clean energy future and provide thousands of new jobs, according to two new reports from WWF. Power to Change: Australia’s Wave Energy Future estimates the the wave energy industry will create 3,210 jobs by 2020, including jobs in local manufacturing and maintenance. By 2050 this figure is expected to grow ...

  • Weather extremes provoked by trapping of giant waves in the atmosphere

    “An important part of the global air motion in the mid-latitudes of the Earth normally takes the form of waves wandering around the planet, oscillating between the tropical and the Arctic regions. So when they swing up, these waves suck warm air from the tropics to Europe, Russia, or the US, and when they swing down, they do the same thing with cold air ...

  • SIE-CAT wave energy accumulator, technology applications

    This unique and proprietary SIE-CAT Wave Energy Accumulator technology, supporting 5 to 10 floats or more as a single array, provides superior results of cost by virtue of its ability to store energy from multiple arrays (mini farm), before Wave Energy Conversion (WEC) to electricity is performed. This two-phase approach to harvesting wave energy introduces a cost effective magnitude-of-scale ...


  • New ideas give energy boost to wave power

    All along the coasts of Europe where the Atlantic waves crash onto the shore there are experimental wave power stations producing electricity. Now engineers in Norway and Sweden − two of the countries trying hardest to develop this technology − have announced “breakthroughs” in their methods, which the inventors believe will make wave power competitive. At present, most ...
