Seattle is among 17 major North American cities whose "2030 District" is driving high-efficiency district energy systems to share and exchange energy and heat between building partners - saving energy, money and maintenance costs, and providing more reliable power.
The drivers of growth are threefold: price parity with traditional energy sources, a greener footprint, and a government push towards cleaner energy.
Industrial biotechnology has diversified and demonstrated the ability to impact more than just biofuels and bioplastics. The industry is producing renewable chemicals as direct replacements for petrochemicals in food, cosmetics, and personal care. The result is sustainable consumer products with new attributes and qualities that people use on a daily basis.
California leads the United States in capacity of several categories: hydroelectric pumped storage, geothermal, landfill gas, and batteries. Florida leads the country in capacity of municipal solid waste and other waste biomass generators.
The Renewable Energy Engineering Program began in 2015 due to the potential demand that is expected for these types of professionals and the opportunity for development (a growing trend) provided by Baja California, the California region in general (USA) and Baja California Sur (Mexico).
What we are seeing is that the Mexican government and its regulatory and policymaking bodies are listening to the stakeholders in Mexico's renewable energy space and they have been tweaking and updating the reforms accordingly.
Recently Pakistan Engineering Council has passed resolution in its AGM for approval of Renewable Energy category in PEC license and it is a great contribution from PEC but Government has to regulate this sector and make active National Accreditation Council Pakistan and PSQCA for imposition of solar standards and certifications in Pakistan to bring quality in this sector.
Large commercial and industrial companies are uniquely positioned to invest in renewable energy projects, and tend to have the most to gain from them.
This Bio-Solar home of Soontorn Booyantikam can harvest 20 to 25 gallons of water per day, the air conditioning produces 8 gallons of condensation. Rain and dew also do not go to waste and gets collected from the roof, the amount varies from season to season.
The thing to realize is that alternative energy is no longer a novelty. It is being driven these days, not so much by political agendas and idealism, but by powerful market forces.
A Certificate of Occupancy on a building constructed of 60 Intermodal Shipping Containers is a huge accomplishment for Paul Wever, president of Chip Energy Inc.
All terrestrial energy sources except nuclear, geothermal and tidal are from current solar insolation or from fossil remains of plant and animal life that relied directly and indirectly upon sunlight, respectively.
The CTS reactor creates a mechanochemical reaction within minutes and breaks down the cellulose to its base components of C5 and C6 sugars and Lignin. The sugars can then be fermented to create biofuels, fine chemicals, or a number of other items including pharmaceuticals, carbon fiber nanotubes, construction products, and nutraceuticals to name a few.
Sewage-to-energy would cut costs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Industry calculations show that if all biosolids in the United States were converted into biomass energy, they would yield 7 million to 7.6 million megawatts of energy, while the existing capacity of wind power in the United States is approximately 43,000 megawatts.
We spoke with Tom Lindberg and Stein Amble Haugan, Managing Director and Key Account Manager of ECOHZ, who attended the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) in Abu Dhabi 17-18 January 2017.

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
