A look at Denmark’s renewable energy progressreveals a transition over the last few decades that looks like an example in the current context of sustainability efforts. A closer look also reveals how this country has taken continuous steps towards sustainability over the last decades, showing just h[..]
The potential of heat pumps for heating and cooling is increasingly understood and employed. The well-designed industrial heat pump has proven to be highly energy-efficient systems (providing up to three times more heat energy than the energy they consume). As a result, this piece of equipment is mo[..]
The words District Heating Networks have become common in conversations about the urban energy transition. In fact, a multitude of initiatives on a global scale have gone beyond simply talking, putting the potential of District Heating Networks to work.
The heating industry stands at a threshold as climate emergency concerns arise and energy scarcity threatens to become an energy crisis. With a marked significance in its contributions to carbon emissions, leading agents in the heating sector have made it their goal to move away from fossil fuels.
The original design of an absorption chiller is credited to the likes of Ferdinand Carré, Carl Munters and Baltzar Von Platen, renowned scientists who did their works between the 1850s and 1920s. While the products were first produced commercially in 1923, it was only in the 60s that serious product[..]
The need for sustainable cities is unquestionable. While these might take many shapes and forms in the coming years, a few figures can shed some light on the impending need for a model of a viable eco city.
The COP or coefficient of performance is a crucial measure to understand any heat engine’s energy efficiency. In a context where energy efficiency has become key for the development of projects, calculating and knowing the coefficient of performance of heat pumps has become a key metric.
