An emergency power system is an independent source of electrical power that supports important electrical systems on loss of normal power supply. A standby power system may include a standby generator, batteries and other apparatus. Emergency power systems are installed to protect life and property from the consequences of loss of primary electric power supply.

Cogeneration systems, also known as combined heat and power, have traditionally been installed by larger industrial users with high steam and power demands and by smaller, institutional users such as universities and hospitals. Since the early 2000s, smaller industrial and commercial companies have discovered cogeneration utilizing natural gas-fired reciprocating engines,

Renewable energy—and solar energy in par­ticular—has a problem. Because it is subject to the vagaries of sunshine and wind for power generation, it is often not available when it is needed most. For those nighttime hours when the sun is not available and cloudy days when sunlight is minimal, provisions

Advances in Gensets: Powering Diverse Configurations

Advances and technologies that improve performance ensure gensets are more reliable than ever before. Today, gensets run on diesel and natural gas. Tier 4 technology ensures cleaner air quality. They can run in parallel. Improved control systems are bringing “smart” technology to gensets. And systems are less noisy due to

A Technology’s Transformation

Fuel cell technology is elegant in its simplicity. An anode, a cathode, and an electrolyte allow positively charged hydrogen ions to move between the two sides of the cell, converting chemical energy into electricity. And the only bi-product is water.

Why, then, has this form of energy storage not been widely

Strength and Security

Until recently, water utilities regarded resiliency as a matter of defense against severe weather events. Now cybersecurity threats—including cyber terrorism—have taken a place on the list of water utilities’ top concerns.
