So far, it seemed to be considered a given that a device for transforming the power of the tides into energy must be balancing over them. A recent research has turned the tables and achieved a technology that allows converting energy from the tides into a mechanism of rotation in an immediate way.
Researchers at Rey Juan Carlos University have developed an algorithm that can accurately estimate the demand for Spanish energy a year in advance. This technique can be useful for policy authorities and experts in the energy sector, that have to annually forecast energy supply, an estimate that is one of the main problems at the national level.
The Technological Institute of Tuxtepec (Ittux) that is part of National Technological of Mexico (Tecnm) - has developed a prototype of a speed bump on streets or highways capable of generating clean electricity.
Heat pump have always been identified with air conditioning systems that provide cooling in summer and warm in winter at a very high cost. However the extraordinary advances in aerothermal technology have provided stationary yields above 10 (producing 10kW cooling with 1kW of electricity consumption). According to Carlos Gómez Cano, CEO of Toshiba Heating and […]
The CO2Algaefix project, for the recovery of carbon dioxide through microalgae cropping, co-funded by the Directorate General Environment of the European Union through the Life + program, was created to demonstrate the feasibility of a capture and CO2 bio fixing process with microalgae in an industrial power generation plant.
Do you know what the photovoltaics potential is in your town? And how much could the municipality and the residents themselves save if they consumed the electricity generated? That is what Miraflores de la Sierra, a town in Madrid has made. It has developed a Study on the Photovoltaic Potential in collaboration with CIEMAT and the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
The Japanese Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) has published a research that describes the development of a single strip of carbon nanotube, a tubular structure with a diameter in the nanometer size that can convert waste heat into mechanical energy at temperatures below 100 ° C. They have also discovered how to produce highly efficient hydrogen.
By Laura Ojea. Among the objectives of the EU 2020 is the energy efficiency. Member countries should save 20% of energy consumed through adoption of efficiency measures. And although Spain has transposed part of the European directive governing it, the catalog of specific actions, including Energy Saving Certificates, CAE (for its acronym in Spanish), is still to be defined.
"Áurea® House" is a self-sufficient housing project presented at the Fair Beyond Building Barcelona - CONSTRUMAT 2015, which combines energy efficiency and 100% renewable, with geobiological and bioclimatic criteria that make it a house free of toxic elements or radiation. From the energy stand point it achieves the PassivHauss rating: 100% self-sufficiency and zero energy consumption.
