Primary energy sources take many forms, including nuclear energy, fossil energy—like oil, coal, and natural gas—and renewable sources like wind, solar and hydropower.

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

A Technology’s Transformation

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

Elements of Critical Power Systems and Their Management

A single power interruption can cripple a healthy company, says Bhavesh Patel, director of marketing of Emerson’s ASCO Power business. “Not having adequate onsite power can be the ‘Achilles heel’ of a business, but the controls for operating, monitoring, diagnosing, and producing a variety of mandatory reports on these power

A Fuel Phase Transition

A Fuel Phase Transition

There is a quiet (and sometimes not so quiet) revolution taking place in the way America powers its motors, engines, and turbines. Industrial motors, traditionally powered by diesel and gasoline fuels, are transitioning to a new fuel source—natural gas.

Compressed natural gas (CNG) and its cousin liquid propane gas (LPG) are becoming

Renewable Energy for Onsite Power Generation

Renewable Energy for Onsite Power Generation

Although every situation is unique, and it’s difficult to generalize, Barry Worthington, executive director of the US Energy Association (USEA) in Washington, DC, says progress in renewable energy over the last 10 years has been phenomenal as systems become more efficient. Nevertheless, use of renewable energy for onsite power generation
