Two interesting technologies for energy storage overviewed on the IMechE website. Liquified Air and Air Fuel Synthesis. I have not heard of the latter before so will be keen to hear more about how it can work and its efficacy. Energy storage is a major issue to address, regardless of energy source.
The challenge Our client has four manufacturing sites covered by CCA’s (Climate Change Agreements) and the EU ETS (European Emissions Trading Scheme). With the next phase of these schemes coming in 2013 they wanted to identify opportunities to minimise what they expected to be significantly increased costs of compliance. At their […]
Carbon Architecture launch their Floating Head Pressure Controller, a device for minimising the energy of refrigeration plants.
In temperate climates like the UK, floating the head pressure of a refrigeration plant to match weather conditions and plant loading can increase the efficiency of refrigeration systems by over 20%.
A simplified explanation of how hydrogen can be used as an energy storage medium and fuel. The article would benefit from some data to back up what it says and more attention could be paid to the inefficiencies in the conversion process. Nonetheless a credible read. http://tpt.to/a2Q6g99
An interesting fact based report dispelling the myth that wind turbines do not actually reduce carbon emissions. http://tpt.to/a2NcxdP
