A matter of keeping cool eon

Due to global warming, our summers are getting hotter. Not surprisingly in an effort to keep cool, home users are purchasing fans and air conditioners. Unfortunately, in our efforts to keep cool, our power bills are increasing, thus increasing our demand for power. Did you know there are number of energy efficient methods that enable people to keep cool in buildings; save you money and help in the fight against climate change? In fact, there are two main ways of keeping cool, one tackling the problem using air conditioning systems and fans, or preventing where you live or work from getting hot in the first place.

Eigg, how the small Scottish island achieved renewable energy self-sufficiency

The island of Eigg, located 20 kilometres from Scottish mainland, has achieved a milestone in sustainable development: complete self-sufficiency based on renewable energy. It used to rely on diesel generators for a few hours of electricity a day but in 2008 it became the first community in the world to launch an off-grid system based on renewable sources, the wind, water and sun. This gave 24-hour access to power to its residents for the first time and despite the local population having risen from around 65 at the end of the 1990s to more than 100 due to the influx of outsiders who have married locals, energy provision has remained sufficient to satisfy everyone’s needs.

BECOMING ‘PARIS PROOF’: EXAMINING THE UK GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL’S ENERGY TARGETS

As part of ongoing efforts to enable all parts of the UK economy to make its contribution in meeting the government’s 2050 climate goals. The industry based lobby group the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) has developed and released its Net Zero Carbon Buildings Framework, which is a set of targets, which aims to guide its members in the construction and management of the country’s building industry, beginning with the commercial offices sector. The aim behind this framework is to make the country’s existing and future building stock meet net zero carbon emissions by 2050, in other words Paris Proof.

AUTOMATED PIPELINES

The application of smart pipeline technologies such as automation are bringing major operational and cost benefits to the oil and gas pipeline sector. These smart technologies are helping to maintain integrity of ageing assets, long distance pipeline assets, unexpected cyber threats and an ageing workforce.

How investors are tightening the screws on M and A.

M&A activity has almost ground to a halt after a flurry of deals last fall. In part, the collapse of oil prices at the end of 2018 cooled the fervour for acquisitions. But a more fundamental shift appears underway as an industry built on risk-taking increasingly steers clear of big gambles.

Global oversupply sets up LNG for a year of record low prices

Liquefied natural gas prices are poised to test record lows this year thanks to an onslaught of new supply and warmer winter temperatures curbing consumption. The start-up of new export projects from Australia to the U.S. has flooded the market, while brimming stockpiles in Europe and an expected slowdown in Chinese demand have dumped cold water on consumption prospects. LNG for spot delivery to North Asia is on track to hit an all-time low this summer, while gas prices in Europe and the U.S. are trading at the weakest seasonal levels since 1999.

European Waste-to-Power and Heat Challenges in Europe

By Nicholas Newman, international energy and technology journalist

Europe’s landfill sites are near to bursting and it is a costly and environmentally damaging means of disposing of waste products. There are currently two main alternative means of waste disposal apart from recycling. The two main options are incineration and anaerobic digestion, both of which produce power as a by-product and are often referred to as waste-to-power technologies. Incineration plants take mainly industrial, commercial and urban waste, burn it and the heat can be turned into power for the grid or distributed in district heating schemes.
