Intelligent Thermal Energy Storage Methods for Covering Peak Hours

The global energy mix is on a gradual but sure transformation that is being spurred by technology advance largely. Renewables are growing at an amazing rate, with estimates indicating that this form of energy could support 14% of global energy needs by 2040. As energy efficiency increase, the share of oil in the energy mix will probably decline gradually. However, its demand will still be high in the coming years. The shifts that we are witnessing may affect different areas of the economy differently, but they all mean one thing- negative effect on the base-load energy generation.

Seawater Cooling System: Do You Know Its Potential For DC?

When trans-oceanic steam-powered ships discovered that seawater could condense exhaust steam into usable water, seawater for climate control was been born. Seawater district cooling has been made possible by modern technology that allows sizeable facilities such as airports and hotels to tap into this rich resource. If you are still using the conventional ac system for your facility and have not considered the potential of seawater cooling system for district cooling, you could be missing a lot.

Boosting Power & Savings: Unprecedented Results with Thermal Energy Storage

For more than a century across the globe, central power plants have been the source of electricity, supplying it to users via transmission line networks. This fossil fuel-reliant model is facing numerous challenges. Initially, a bulk of efforts aimed at reducing the environmental impact of generation by switching to natural gas. These efforts led to the almost equal presence of coal-fired and natural gas-fired turbine power plants. However, some constants remain in the power utility business- efficiency and fuel cost. Before we look at some unprecedented results with thermal energy storage (TES), let us review the basics of the technology.

Heat Recovery Steam Generator Technology

The power generation industry is leaning towards combined cycles, which are in high demand for their minimal delivery time and higher efficiency. Enhanced efficiency is beneficial for both countering the greenhouse effect and reducing fuel expenses. One of the most important components in combined cycle and cogeneration power plants is the Heat Recovery Steam Generator […]
