Cooking - gas or electric - 0 views

    Among the major culprits here are inefficient appliances. According to the United States Department of Energy, a gas burner delivers only 35 to 40 percent of its heat energy to the pan; a standard electrical element conveys about 70 percent. Anyone thinking about kitchen renovation should know that induction cooktops, which generate heat directly within the pan itself, are around 90 percent efficient.

Can slow cooking change lives? | Life and style | - 1 views

  • An old fuel-saving idea has been reinvented for the 21st century. In the developed world a 'Wonderbag' will save you money - elsewhere it helps save lives

Cooking Without Electricity - Bitten - Dining & Wine - New York Times Blog - 0 views

  • But the kitchen held my fascination. Without electricity, everything is fresh. The chef, Lenin, (by report, Lenin and Stalin are common names in Ecuador) 23 years old, has a kitchen garden with lettuces, pineapple, tree tomatoes, sweet potatoes, naranjillos (they resemble tomatillas, but within their ‘paper’ is a round morsel of sweetness), pumpkin squash, scallions, limes, peppers, oregano, curly parsley, coffee . . .

Cuisinières à induction électromagnétique: rendement 90 % ! - 0 views

  • Concernant les cuisinières électriques, je pense qu’il serait judicieux de conseiller les modèles à induction électromagnétique, plus économes (rendement compris entre 80 % et 90 %) et plus rapides que les modèles à rayonnement par résistance chauffante ou par combustion de gaz.

Industry News - The IET - 0 views

    Transport group Arriva is trialling B20 biodiesel - a blend of normal and plant-derived diesel - for the first time on its buses. The 75 buses in the innovative trial will run from Arriva's Blyth Garage in Northumberland and carry around 130,000 passengers every week. Minimal engineering changes will be required to the fleet as part of the scheme. The company is aiming to reduce total carbon emissions by around 14 per cent by using Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) as a 20 per cent blend. The FAME will predominantly be a mixture of sustainable soya products, along with used cooking oil and tallow.

Is it better for the planet to grill with charcoal or gas? (Slate Magazine) - 0 views

    Barbecue season is upon us, and I'm wondering about the greenest method for cooking up my legendary T-bones and sweet sausages. Should I stick with charcoal, which I've used for years, or should I finally make the switch to gas?

ECREEE Validation Workshop on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Policies and Scena... - 1 views

  • The Commission of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) works towards a voluntary commitment to the Sustainable Energy For All Initiative of the UN Secretary General presented at the Rio+20. In a regional workshop, held from 25 to 27 June 2012 in Dakar, Senegal, the Directors of the ECOWAS Ministries of Energy agreed on the main targets and pillars of a regional renewable energy and energy efficiency policy of ECOWAS. The policies aim at the following objectives: Around 30% of the electricity consumption in the ECOWAS region will be saved through demand and supply side efficiency improvements by 2030. The share of renewable energy (incl. large hydro) of the total installed electric generation capacity of ECOWAS will increase to 35% in 2020 and 48% to 2030. The share of new renewable energy such as wind, solar, small scale hydro and bioelectricity (excl. large hydro) will increase to around 10% in 2020 and 19% in 2030. These targets translate to an additional 2.425 MW renewable electricity capacity by 2020 and 7.606 MW by 2030. To provide universal access to energy services it is envisaged that around 75% of the rural population will be served through grid extension and around 25% by renewable energy powered by mini-grids and stand-alone systems in 2030. By 2020 the whole ECOWAS population will have access to improved cooking facilities either through improved stoves or fuel switching to other modern forms of energy such as LPG. The share of ethanol/biodiesel in transport fuels will increase to 5% in 2020 and 10% in 2030. By 2030 around 50% of all health centers, 25% of all hotels and agro-food industries with hot water requirements will be equipped with solar thermal systems.

BBC NEWS | Technology | Hydrogen refuel station unveiled - 0 views

    A hydrogen refuelling station which could be installed in the home as an alternative to visiting a petrol station has been unveiled. Users will need a hydrogen-powered car to go with it although the system can also be used for heating and cooking. Hydrogen has long been touted as an alternative energy source to carbon-hungry fossil fuels.
