LiquidPiston Successfully Runs Hybrid-Electric X-Engine on Hydrogen, Proves Zero Emission Engine Technology Is a Reality

The company replaced a traditional go-kart engine with its hybrid-electric X-Engine powered by hydrogen.

5 Questions Developers Ask About Pneumatics

More and more developers, EPCs and investors are evaluating tracker systems that use the power of air, also known as pneumatic power, instead of electric power because of the many advantages that pneumatics has to offer.

New Gear Manufacturing Technologies - the Role of Precision Metrology

Two factors of the vehicle's operation are related to these new gear packs for electric cars-efficiency, or 'rangeability,' and gear noise. To appeal to consumers, electric vehicles will need to reach similar mileage as their internal combustion counterparts.

Partnerships Amplify Velocity of Offshore Wind Innovation

The U.S. Department of Energy and the White House have made offshore wind a centerpiece of plans to strengthen the nation's energy infrastructure, announcing a goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030-a huge leap from the 42 megawatts currently in operation.

Ai-driven Home Solar and Usage Monitoring

On the sales side, showing customers how a home consumes electricity and how their bill is derived - and then how the proposed solar array would help solve their electric bill concerns - makes solar tangible.

NEC 2023 Changes to Sections 690, 691, 692, 694, 705, 710 and 790

This article summarizes some of the current and new requirements regarding proper labeling for standard solar and wind installations.

Solar Plant Production Verification and Error Detection

Using Solar-Log® monitoring, the SunPeak Operations & Maintenance team can track solar plant energy production metrics as well as data from the installed Lufft pyranometer to ensure that the system is running free and clear of errors.

Alternate Energy Aficionados Dream Come True : Solar Cars: Is It Really a Possibility?

After vigorous calculations, researchers have concluded that to drive 50 miles per day, a car needs 3.44 kW, and most of the current solar panels can produce 345 W/ft² under full sun, and that will need approximately 250 ft² of solar panels in a car.

Resistance Beyond the Four Walls - Industrial Resistors Aren't Just for the Factory Floor

Resistors are commonplace power components in industrial buildings - but their use is not limited to the factory floor. In many industries, resistors play a vital role in the power management of electrical equipment.

Battery Safety Concerns Can Be Addressed With Proper Design and Manufacturing

More and more homeowners are requesting battery backup solutions as part of their solar power installations. With increased adoption of solar power, concerns about fire hazards are likely to grow. Are these concerns justified?
