Eligible projects may include developing transformative solutions to break through current performance barriers, such as efficiency and temperature limitations, and projects to demonstrate or prove new concepts for CSP plant components.
With either organization, one of the most important factor will be determining window glazing options, since that is how the passive solar heat gain is achieved within the structure.
The amount of energy it uses at its cost is still insignificant compared to Fairchild Hall. Its energy intensity is less but its cost per energy is significantly greater. We have to consider all of this to determine where to dedicate our resources.
CHP, also known as cogeneration, simultaneously produces electricity and steam or hot water from a single heat source, using traditional or renewable fuels. By recovering and using heat typically wasted by the conventional production of electricity, CHP gives U.S. manufacturers a competitive edge by minimizing production costs while reducing carbon pollution.
Hydrogen Fuel Cells ( Solar Thermal Magazine) LIVERMORE, California. — Mobile lighting systems powered by hydrogen fuel cells are cleaner, quieter and now have a proven track record in applications such as nighttime construction, sports and entertainment events and airport operations, making them ready for commercialization and broader use.
Ontario’s renewable program is unique in North America and has created thousands of manufacturing and construction jobs as well as millions of dollars in annual revenues to the landowners and communities where the projects and the manufacturing facilities are located.
Parabolic Trough Solar Power Plant in Arizona Recipient of Two Arizona Forward Environmental Excellence Awards
A jury selected the Solana Generating Station for top honors because it not only boosts Arizona’s solar industry, but offers significant environmental benefits and represents a new and unique technology in the U.S. The project also earned a first-place Crescordia in the Governor’s Award for Energy & Technology Innovation – Central Arizona category.
If we want to reduce transportation pollution and oil use, a big part of the answer is to be like Bob Dylan and go electric.
Conventional batteries store electricity by changing the chemistry of their internal chemical compounds. During discharge, the chemistry is reversed and electrons leave the battery to power an attached load. The chemical reactions that convert electrical energy to and from chemical energy take time. Therefore they are slower to charge and discharge.
