Cogeneration Utilizing Natural Gas-fired Reciprocating Engines

Cogeneration Utilizing Natural Gas-fired Reciprocating Engines

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,

The Strongest Link in the Chain

The Strongest Link in the Chain

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

RENEWABLE ENERGY FOCUS IN THE THIRD VOLVO CE BRAND EPISODE

RENEWABLE ENERGY FOCUS IN THE THIRD VOLVO CE BRAND EPISODE

Illustrating how construction is helping make the world a better place, the third episode of Volvo CE’s groundbreaking brand campaign, ‘Building Tomorrow’ blows into a remarkable wind farm project in South Africa.

Despite abundant natural resources, coal alone will not provide the energy needed to power South Africa in the long

Pumps Operations in the Building Envelope

Water flows downhill. Nothing could be more simple. Getting water to the top floor of an urban skyscraper is a bit more difficult. Mere gravity flow or even accumulated static pressure head aren’t sufficient to accomplish this task. Pumps are obviously needed. But what kinds of pumps are used in

BES-TECH
The Digi-RTU modulates the capacity of rooftop units and air/water source heat pumps to match the dynamic nature of building cooling or heating loads. As a result, energy waste is minimized and indoor comfort is improved. Because of its unique operating principles, the Digi-RTU achieves greater savings than any other

Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) or Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is extremely important to our health and wellbeing. The Environmental Protection Agency named IAQ as one of the top five environmental health risks because improvements in energy efficient construction materials have led to reduced air circulation indoors—and that can cause a
