A report released by the Clean Energy Council has found that the market for energy storage technology in Australia will be equivalent to several coal-fired power stations by 2030, effectively transforming the way we think about electricity for our homes and businesses.
A million electric cars on Germany’s roads by 2020. This is the ambitious target set by the Federal Government in its bid to continue the battle against CO2 emissions. It believes that e-mobility is a significant key technology to create a sustainable transport system for the future, especially where the power is produced from renewable energy sources.
Gildemeister Energy Solutions (a DMG company) has developed the CellCube, a powerful, durable and low-maintenance vanadium redox flow large-scale storage solution, following many years of research.
The EcoXpert training and certification program is designed to give medium-sized electrical contractors the necessary skills to become certified energy experts so they can develop new services and meet the changing energy needs of their customer base. The program helps contractors advise, sell and install a broad range of pre-engineered energy solutions across small to medium-sized commercial, industrial buildings and high-end residential applications.
Scientists at Wake Forest University have made a new kind of light from mouldable plastic, which can glow in any colour, won’t shatter and won’t leave you with the problem of searching for the one bad bulb on a strand of dozens.
MWM Energy Australia, the local subsidiary of the German-based gas genset manufacturer, has been awarded the service contract for the Melbourne Airport trigeneration facility.
Australians can now take a peek at what will power Australia in 2050 with just the click of a mouse.
Selecting a burner for any process heating application always involves a choice between different burner models and different burner sizes. Both will have a significant effect on product quality and system efficiency.
The EcoDry low-loss transformer, TriDry triangular transformer and PoleDry transformers can provide improved efficiency, safety and eco-compatibility for utility, oil and gas, and mining industries.
Countries are attempting to balance global warming and the continued use of fossil fuels by developing clean coal technologies, states a new report by GlobalData.
Compressed air solutions specialist Sullair Australia has secured a landmark contract to provide 23 compressor packages - including ancillary equipment - for Australian coal seam gas producer QGC. The contract forms an integral part of QGC’s Queensland Curtis Liquefied Natural Gas (QCLNG) Project.
Despite the reported benefits of bioenergy, the uptake in Australia has been relatively slow. What is holding the industry back and where are the opportunities for growth? This, and more, will be discussed at the Bioenergy Australia 2012 Conference ‘Biomass for a low carbon future’, which is being held at the Sebel & Citigate Albert Park Hotel, Melbourne, from 26 to 27 November 2012, with an off-site technical tour of bioenergy facilities in the region on 28 November 2012.
Although the Clean Technology grants have proved both effective and popular, the government has put the grants on ‘pause’ subject to a full budget review. As one of the major barriers to organisations implementing efficiency plans is cashflow, the freeze is a real blow for Australian businesses. Despite the freeze, the temporary pause on these grants needn’t mean the end of Australian businesses’ efficiency plans. There are still ways to implement efficiencies without the need to invest heavily.
Adelaide Airport Limited (AAL) has entered into a three-year partnership with the Centre for Energy Technology (CET) at the University of Adelaide to provide valuable research support and help develop innovative clean energy solutions.
Since 1752, the Wenning family in Germany has run a successful agricultural business and distillery. Thirty years ago, they took the first pioneering steps towards on-site biogas production. Together with the help of Atlas Copco, they now have evolved into an award-winning energy producer, using 50% less power than other, comparable plants.
