Auto-electrification - The IET - 0 views

  • One of the more aggressive developers is Ford, which has test vehicles on the road as part of its plan to bring electrified vehicles to market over the next four years. Although not alone in its drive to capture this potentially valuable market, Ford’s strategy and product range reflects the market sentiments; primarily that there is no silver bullet. To be successful requires a portfolio of technologies.

Microbes in Dirt Provide Electricity for African Villagers : TreeHugger - 0 views

  • Providing electricity to people in countries where either the grid is not reliable, or nonexistent and unlikely ever to be built, can make a huge difference in people’s quality of life in very practical ways. We’ve written before about companies such as D.Light Design which have solar-powered replacements for kerosene lanterns , and efforts to bring small-scale solar panels to off-grid villages in Laos. Hand cranked cell phone chargers, radios and flashlights are other proven options that have received attention.
    I'm ambivalent to this idea. It's better than nothing, but very far from grid-based electricity. Do these ideas block Africa's development. Are they patronising?

The New Times - Rwandas First Daily :: Issue 13546 :: 261 health centres to receive ele... - 0 views

  • The Government this week unveiled a plan to supply power to more than 261 health centres. The Euro 36.5m (about Frw27.4b) project was presented before development partners this week. Most of the targeted health centres are based in rural areas.

Kirchoff's Laws - 1 views

  • To all, who know how to solve the problems mathematically, something for you all? Please solve it Kirchoff’s Current Law (KCL): At every node, the sum of all currents entering a node must equal zero. Kirchoff’s Voltage Law (KVL): The voltage law says that the sum of voltages around every closed loop in the circuit must equal zero.

Isle of Eigg - Eigg Electric - 1 views

    "On 1st February 2008, the Isle of Eigg entered a new era, with the switching on of our island electrification project, which makes 24 hour power available for the first time to all residents and businesses on the island. Until then we were entirely dependent upon making our own power and the clattering of generators was always to be heard. Now, the generators are silent and suddenly we have leapt to the forefront of electricity generation using renewable energy resources. Our project is a world leader in the integration of multiple renewable energy sources into a grid system to supply an isolated and scattered small community. "

IDTechEx Predicts Electric Vehicle Charging Going Zero-Emission, Off-Grid - 5 views

  • The new IDTechEx report, "Zero-Emission Electric Vehicle Charging: Off-Grid 2020-2040" examines how the electric vehicle business is finding it profitable to respond to criticism that clean vehicles should not be charged with fossil fuel electricity. The purpose of this 230-page report is to enable materials, component, vehicle and infrastructure suppliers and putative suppliers, and all others in the value chain, to understand this large emerging opportunity for off-grid zero-emission OGZE charging of electric vehicles land, water and airborne.

Energy Systems for Sustainable Prosperity | SpringerLink - 1 views

  • Ecologically sustainable energy technologies comprise renewable energy supply together with improved efficiency of energy conversion and use. Together they can mitigate the climate crisis, greatly reduce pollution of air, water and land, create more jobs than are lost in the fossil fuel industries they replace, and contribute to energy independence and social equity. The best technical energy supply strategy is transitioning fossil fuelled electricity to renewables, electrifying most heating and transportation, and producing fuels by using renewable electricity to make hydrogen and ammonia. This technological transition is necessary and urgent, but unlikely to be sufficiently rapid to avoid irreversible climate change. Substantial demand reductions are needed by rich countries, beyond the technological measures of energy efficiency. This would entail an end to growth in energy production, materials extraction, land clearing and population, that is, the creation of a steady-state economy within Earth’s biocapacity.
