The integration of biomethane in concentrating solar thermal power plants would facilitate the commercial introduction of concentrating solar power (CSP) technology in the energy market, reducing both financial and environmental costs.
A modern wind farm usually consists of multiple wind turbines arranged in an organized pattern or array. Wake interferences among wind turbines have been found to affect the performance of the wind turbines significantly. Researchers studied the effects of relative rotation direction of wind turbines on the wake interferences among tandem turbines for improved power production performance of wind turbines in a wind farm.
Turning the 'hydrogen economy' concept into a reality, even on a small scale, has been a bumpy road, but scientists are developing a novel way to store hydrogen to smooth out the long-awaited transition away from fossil fuels.
Researchers have spent the past several years researching ways to harness plants' natural abilities to filter toxins out of the air into an application that could be used in indoor spaces like office buildings.
The most important fertilizer for producing food is, at the same time, one of the most important risks for human health: nitrogen. Ambitious mitigation efforts, however, could decrease the pollution by 50 percent. The analysis is the very first to quantify this.
