"The expansion of our electric vehicle charging infrastructure complements our operations and research efforts while supporting the university and the state's efforts to promote clean transportation."
Megan Treacy for TreeHugger: A new technology developed by University of Nebraska-Lincoln electrical engineering doctoral student Jie Cheng solves both of those problems by harnessing the excess wind energy usually wasted as spillage and storing it for use when wind speeds dip, making wind turbines more efficient and consistent. Cheng's system converts and directs the extra wind energy to an air compression tank, where the energy is stored until wind speeds dip below the maximum capacity. Using a rotary vane machine that is connected between the turbine's gearbox and generator, excess energy is diverted and stored in the air compression tank. When the wind dies down, the tank then kicks in and reverses airflow back to the rotary vane machine to generate electricity. In a recent study of his prototype, Cheng found that a 250-kW system would produce an additional 3,830 kWh of electricity per week or an additional 16,400 kWh per month based on historical wind data from Springview, Nebraska. That extra electricity is about 18 times the monthly energy use of a typical American household. Cont'd...
Up to 30% more energy efficient than traditional site-built homes
It explores an expanding universe of solar-energy occupations.
"Compared to prior years, this period of strong growth in solar installation demand, coupled with tight supply, will support relatively robust pricing"
This project will assess the technology's ability to enhance the integration of a 1 MW solar PV system in Cedartown, Georgia.
"Integrating TS4 into our PV modules is the first step in building a lasting Hansol-Tigo partnership and we look forward to further expanding the relationship to feature Tigo-integrated inverters and energy storage systems in the future."
Such a battery would allow British Antarctic Survey (BAS) to significantly increase autonomous scientific measurements made in the Antarctic without increasing transport costs or emissions.
