Tag: energy sources

Classified according to the energy reserves of the energy source used and the regeneration capacity with:
renewable: When the energy source used is freely regenerated in a short period and there are practically limitless reserves; An example is the solar energy that is the source of energy from the sun, or the wind[note 13] used as an energy resource. Renewable energies are:
original solar,
natural wind (atmospheric flows),
natural geothermal,
oceanic tidal,
natural waterfall (hydraulic flows),
natural plant: paper, wood,
natural animal: wax, grease,
nonrenewable: They are coming from energy limited sources on Earth in quantity and, therefore, are exhaustible. The non-renewable energy sources include, non-exclusively:
fossil source: petroleum, natural gas, coal
original mineral/chemical: uranium, shale gas

Converting Biogas into CNG for Alternative Vehicle Fuels

Converting Biogas into CNG for Alternative Vehicle Fuels

New technology is being developed in response to a growing interest in lower-cost vehicle fuel alternatives. One example is the patent-pending BioCNG biogas conditioning system invented by Cornerstone, which economically converts methane produced from the decomposition of organic waste materials—or “biogas”—into a renewable natural gas (RNG) suitable for use in

Microgrid Technology to Improve Energy Security and Sustainablity

Microgrid Technology to Improve Energy Security and Sustainablity

Nearly 25 years ago, Caterpillar opened a proving ground about 30 miles southwest of Tucson, AZ. The facility consists of large open-air test areas, where Caterpillar conducts field trials of many of its large mining equipment before being brought to market. The proving ground site also includes workshops and an office building.

On August 21 areas of North America will experience daytime darkness as the sun is eclipsed by the moon. It’s a highly anticipated solar event, the likes of which North America hasn’t experienced since 1918. In order to learn about how the eclipse will affect the solar power industry, we

Solar Eclipse Essentials

Solar Eclipse Essentials

Not only has the US become more energy dependent since the last total solar eclipse took place in 1979, its energy infrastructure has become increasingly reliant on solar energy. So what will happen on August 21st when the sun is temporarily obscured by the moon?

Three Key Challenges for Today’s Electricity Market

Three Key Challenges for Today’s Electricity Market

As we continue to move through 2017, utility operators are anxiously waiting to see which energy regulations the new US administration will implement this year. While President Trump has repeatedly indicated that he plans to lend his support to the fossil fuels sector, interest remains high in the US and
