Utilities should consider storage in resource planning and investment

Washington State regulators today issued a formal policy statement addressing how Washington’s investor-owned electric utility companies should include energy storage to meet future resource requirements.

In the statement, the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) reviewed the landscape of energy storage technologies and

The Physics of CHP Cogeneration and Heat Engine Efficiency

How does CHP work? To understand CHP you have to begin with the Carnot cycle, and how it describes the function and efficacy of any heat engine. The thermodynamic Carnot cycle (proposed by Nicolas Carnot in 1824) is a four-stage process that describes the reciprocal operations of a heat engine

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
