Gigafactories have several advantages over smaller facilities. They can eliminate some of the risks of complex supply chains, they are built with sustainability in mind from day one and they spur economic growth by creating employment opportunities for thousands of people.
The club is located on a private peninsula, bound on three sides by water and on the fourth side by federal and state lands. The area is subject to 180 mph, Category 5 hurricane winds, making installation of a low-profile, roof-mounted system essential.
The lessons learned at the atomic level could lead to improvements in the way manufacturers strengthen their products against what is known as light-induced degradation.
When looking at how energy efficiency can lower housing costs, "Utility bills are the easiest target," said NREL engineer Kristin Field-Macumber. "Now we are also looking at advanced manufacturing and making production more efficient."
EVs could have disruptive implications for the future of transportation manufacturing. However, the potential for market disruption also presents a significant opportunity for U.S. manufacturing and the forgings market in particular.
Beyond moving away from fossil fuels, one of the most promising strategies is trapping carbon and either sequestering it in the ground, or using it for other applications. There are a number of ways this can be done.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and clean hydrogen company Electric Hydrogen have inked an agreement to develop high-performance electrolyzer components, helping to scale clean hydrogen and invent new opportunities for decarbonization.
What got us till here may not be sufficient to take us to the finish line. Persistent efforts at an accelerated pace in the right direction is vital to reach decarbonization goals by 2035.
A 30.8 MWh energy storage system (ESS) is under construction for the French transmission grid operator RTE. The site is one of three being established under the RINGO project, which will test large-scale batteries as a way to relieve congestion on the transmission grid.
Bat Deterrent Systems were installed on three of the plant's 37 Nordex turbines by Nordex technicians, following remote guidance from NRG's Technical Services team. This is the second trial of NRG's Bat Deterrent System in South Africa.
Manufacturing blades that can bend with "controlled flexing" will allow railroads to ship longer blades around the United States. Because of bends, twists, and turns in railroad lines, the upper limit for transporting single-piece land-based blades by rail is currently 75 meters.
A research and demonstration facility aimed at accelerating the development of low-carbon, market-ready bioenergy products and carbon-negative energy systems has opened its doors at the University of British Columbia.
The key switch has become commonplace for automation engineers and technicians who maintain and support these systems and understand the importance of the little switch in overall device operation and affects the underlying process.
Environmental engineers developed a solar storage system, creating an abundant energy supply before a storm hits. Instead of directly transferring electricity to local homes, the technology stores energy in shipping containers as green hydrogen.
Before we examine the transportation innovations for a post-carbon country, we must assess the ecologically degrading features of conventional systems.
