12 Chief Pros and Cons of Alternative Energy

One of the hottest topics these days is alternative energy. With the ever-growing population increase, energy demand is also increasing every day. Non-renewable energy sources are limited and not friendly to the environment, and their increase or decrease in production can have a direct impact on inflation. On the other hand, alternative power sources are sustainable, renewable, environmentally friendly and, not to mention, abundant. Unlike fossil fuels, they are not going to expire soon as they are constantly replenished. But like fossil fuels, alternative energy sources also have had their own shortcomings. They are highly dependent on weather, and any significant atmospheric change can reduce its production. Though we are not in the best position to completely switch over to renewable energy anytime soon, getting a relatively good portion of our daily energy consumption from these sources can definitely have a positive impact on your finances and the environment. While the ene...

Conventional vs. Lithium-Ion Batteries in Motorcycles– Ch...

BATTERY TECHNOLOGY: AGM VS LFP The future of motorcycling is always hazy. New inventions and tweaks on older technologies come along at a rapid pace. It is impossible to know which ones will take hold and which will be swept into the dustbin. The recent influx of battery types to the market is a perfect case in point. New battery technologies are inundating the market, but which ones will take root, and can any threaten the supremacy of the classic, conventional motorcycle battery? Until today the debate on which is the better motorcycle battery is still ongoing and there are a lot of arguments from both sides. The truth is, determining which is the better battery depends on your preferences, so it’s really difficult to make a claim. One thing is for sure though, regardless of the battery type people use, the motorcycle industry will continue its pursuit of product improvement and development.

HOW TIME-OF-USE RATES WORK

Many electric companies and co-ops across the U.S. are facing increasing challenges when it comes to meeting electricity demand on the grid. More and more utilities are changing to alternative rate structures such as time-of-use (TOU) pricing where the cost of electricity changes throughout the day to match demand. One reason for the rising popularity of time-of-use fee structures, in particular, is the need to balance energy usage throughout the day to ensure the reliability of the grid. EXAMPLE RATE SCHEDULE Most power companies using a time-of-use fee scale divide the day into peak, shoulder and off-peak segments. For example, a summer weekday might be divided as follows: ● Peak: 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. ● Shoulder: 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ● Off-peak: Remainder of the day In comparison, a winter weekday TOU schedule may look like this: ● Peak: 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. ● Shoulder: 9:00 a.m. to noon, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ● Off-peak: Remainder of the day ...

California’s Solar Mandate for New Homes: What You Need t...

[Editor’s note: This article was updated on December 6, 2018 to reflect formal approval of the policy by the California Building Standards Commission.] As you may have heard, California recently became the first state to mandate solar PV systems on all new homes. This is a momentous decision for the industry; it brings the benefits of solar, a historical niche product, directly to a significant portion of homeowners. The policy will dramatically expand the size of California’s solar market–already the most mature in the nation–and perhaps it will eventually inspire similar action in other states. For California solar companies that position themselves effectively, this could open up some great opportunities to serve a vast new sector. In today’s article, we detail what’s required under the new policy so you can make sense of what’s changing and assess the market opportunities. What policy establishes California’s new home solar mandate? On May 9, 2018, the California Energ...

Alkaline vs. Lithium Batteries: Which Battery Is Best?

Batteries are also an important element of illuminated disposable medical devices, and the type of battery you use is important as well. It can mean the difference between being able to conduct a smooth successful procedure and one that involves unforeseen delays related to lighting issues. In addition, there’s the issue of post-battery use and disposal, which brings with it environmental issues that must be considered as well. Most people typically buy alkaline batteries. These account for 80% of the manufactured batteries in the US. They are inexpensive and extremely common. They are non-rechargeable. Alkaline batteries are widely used in TV remotes, children’s toys, and low-drain wireless devices like computer keyboards or doorbells. Lithium batteries stand apart from alkaline in their high charge density (which leads to longer life and run-time). They are more expensive than alkaline and are non-rechargeable. Lithium batteries are widely used in smoke detectors, clocks...

After cars, battery-powered boats are the next frontier.

The slender boat lurches forward, its four passengers clinging to the wooden deck as they surge past the Monaco skyline. For all its sculpted lines and awesome acceleration, the white cruiser wouldn’t be out of place with climate activist Greta Thunberg at the wheel, rather than the moneyed elite flocking to the principality in search of a new toy. “Such aggressive acceleration is only possible with electric drives,” says Peter Minder, as he commands the 250,000-euro ($277,000) boat built by his company Designboats.ch. Only the air stream and a high-pitched buzz from twin electric engines betray a speed of almost 30 miles per hour. “Our clients increasingly want to enjoy their maritime hobbies without emissions and noise. But they still want to have fun.” While electric cars are a realistic alternative to the century-old internal-combustion engine, the world’s waterways are dominated by ships that belch plumes of diesel exhaust and heavy fuel oil. But because of long life cycles ...

Since 1950 the shortest ferry route in Xiamen has provided a lifeline to Gulangyu. It’s a highly-scenic ride which today takes only two minutes over the narrow but deceptively 17-meter-deep sound. The current Gulangyu has transported passengers at 150-minute intervals 48000 times annually since 2010. For ten years it used diesel for electric power generation and propulsion, consuming 100,000 liters of fuel each year. In the drive to cut costs and achieve more sustainable the operation, the ferry sought solutions to reduce the fuel consumption for the auxiliary power generators. The process was a collaborative development project with Gulangyu, Wisdom Power, The shipyard, and contractor, where the ferry was assessed, the battery supply and power conversion extensively tested, and finally the ferry equipped with a customized hybrid power generation system. From 19 hours of diesel power…. Before the retrofit, the two diesel auxiliary generators were powering the hotel load, bridge ...
