Open source planning tool for the energy turnaround

Open source planning tool for the energy turnaround
How much electricity flows through the grid? When and where? Where are the bottlenecks? What happens when wind turbines and solar cells feed in additional energy? The answer to these questions are essential for the global energy turnaround. However, for a valid planning, one first needs a solid understanding of the infrastructure.

Smart buoy for measuring water pollutants

Smart buoy for measuring water pollutants
All over the world, lakes, rivers, and coastal waters are threatened by high nutrient inputs. Nitrate or phosphates from waste-waters or fertilisers causes eutrophication. The consequence: Algae, in particular cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), grow uncontrollably and may release toxic substances.

Solar thermal power system undergoes verification testing

Solar thermal power system undergoes verification testing
Verification testing of the sunlight and thermal energy collecting performance of a unique solar thermal power system has been launched by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems at dedicated facilities newly completed within its Yokohama Works. The testing will be conducted through March 2017 under contract from the Ministry of the Environment as a FY2016 project under its "Low Carbon Technology Research and Development Program."

Light-trapping 3D solar cells undergo space testing

Light-trapping 3D solar cells undergo space testing
A novel 3D solar cell design developed at Georgia Tech will soon get its first testing in space aboard the International Space Station. An experimental module containing 18 test cells was launched to the ISS, and will be installed on the exterior of the station to study the cells’ performance and their ability to withstand the rigors of space. In addition to testing the 3D format, the module will also study a low-cost copper-zinc-tin-sulfide (CZTS) solar cell formulation.

Measuring greenhouse gases from space

Measuring greenhouse gases from space
Space agencies examine the extent of greenhouse gases in the air via prisms and gratings in satellites. The latest technology now makes it possible to connect both components with each other so that they are suitable for space thus achieving a new level of quality for spectral resolution. In addition to industrial CO2 emissions, agriculture also contributes significantly to climate change: above all methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), which are released in large quantities due to livestock and fertilisation.

Tests show how trucks can reuse engine heat for power

Working with automotive manufacturer Scania, researchers from KTH Royal Institute of Technology have been testing semi trucks equipped with a system that converts exhaust heat into power — through a process called thermoelectric generation (TEG). The voltage produced by the system can power the truck and reduce the strain on the engine, explains researcher Arash Risseh.

Lidar addition enables floating laboratory

Lidar addition enables floating laboratory
AXYS Technologies is looking to set the standard in floating lidar devices, having deployed a dual ZephIR 300 arrangement on the company's WindSentinel buoy, a world first. The WindSentinel ‘floating laboratory’ delivers a customised full suite of meteorological and metocean data, in addition to the wind speed & direction data used for resource assessment, to better inform the development of offshore wind farms.
