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

The Future of Energy

The Future of Energy

The energy industry is in the midst of a dramatic transformation as it reevaluates and reconfigures the way that it generates, stores, and distributes electrons.

Energy demand worldwide increases by 2% each year as our culture becomes more energy-dependent. Meanwhile, mounting concern over CO2 emissions, fossil fuel usage, and sustainability have

Reliable Power from Reliable Fuel

Reliable Power from Reliable Fuel

The US economic infrastructure depends heavily on the use of energy. Fuel diversity helps mitigate fuel risk for businesses, consumers, and industries against factors like price fluctuations, delivery infrastructure problems, new environmental policies, and regulations.

A Breeze and a Battery

A Breeze and a Battery

Combining technologies in hybridized applications can offer great results. In the case of wind power, experts agree that the fusion of energy generation and storage has the paradigm-shifting potential to make wind energy increasingly attractive to power markets worldwide.

Some of the world’s largest offshore wind turbines stand at around 640

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.
