The United States has installed a record 16,836 megawatts of wind capacity in 2021, as detailed in the Onshore Wind …

BAKOU, Azerbaijan, August 31 By Elchin Mehdiyev – Trend: Another meeting of the Working Group on Energy Supply of the Interdepartmental Center under the Coordination Headquarters, established to resolve the issues in the territories of Azerbaijan freed from Armenian occupation, was held, Tendency reports August 31. During the meeting, representatives of the relevant state agencies …

Companies evacuated oil and gas rigs in southern Louisiana before Hurricane Ida, but a far greater concern was potential damage to refineries and petrochemical plants on the predicted path of flooding and storm surges. Nearly 300 offshore platforms – half of the manned platforms in the Gulf of Mexico – were evacuated before the storm, …

Biomass is attracting increasing interest from researchers as a renewable, sustainable and clean energy source. It can be converted to bio-oil by thermochemical methods, such as gasification, liquefaction, and pyrolysis, and used to produce fuels, chemicals, and biomaterials. In Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energies, researchers from the Heilongjiang Academy of Agricultural Machinery Sciences in …

New nuclear construction improves system-level energy security, increases the resilience of the power grid and helps reduce reliance on imported energy, according to a study by the New Nuclear Watch Institute (NNWI). The report makes a clear case for building and maintaining a diverse, low-carbon production mix during the transition to a carbon-free energy system, …

Solar and wind power plants provide clean, affordable electricity on a large scale, but they have one major scarecrow: intermittency. Essentially, intermittency refers to the fact that wind and solar power is both, to some extent, unpredictable and uncontrollable – and, in the context of a power grid, that means more controllable generating plants – …

Hazelnuts are delicious, but can their husks be used to create renewable energy? According to Chinese researchers, the hulls of the nuts could be a good source of biomass to create biofuels. The new research focuses on how hazelnut shells respond to the pyrolysis process – by superheating them to temperatures between 400 and 1,000 …

The research team works to integrate various energy sources to efficiently generate electricity through the use of renewable resources. Muscat: An experimental station at Sultan Qaboos University’s Sustainable Energy Research Center (SQU) seeks to conduct experiments related to energy security and efficiency while minimizing costs and reducing harmful emissions for the environment. The experimental station …

Nuclear scientists in the United States say they have taken a crucial step towards obtaining high energy production from nuclear fusion reactions that can trigger a self-sustaining chain reaction. The successful experiment of scientists at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the United States could pave the way for clean …

France Media AgencyAug 18, 2021 2:29:58 PM IST Nuclear scientists using lasers the size of three football fields said on Tuesday they generated a huge amount of energy from the fusion, possibly offering hope for the development of a new source clean energy. Experts focused their giant array of nearly 200 laser beams on a …
