Grid 2030

The cost of replacing the power delivery system in the US would be prohibitive. What can be done is to employ advanced technology to modernise and enhance the use of existing assets. The DOE has a vision of the grid in 2030 which builds on the existing electric infrastructure. The same types of equipment that […]

Transmission Grid Interconnections

The development of cross-borders lines started earlier than many people think. In Europe it started by 1920, mainly to take advantage of Swiss hydropower. In most of continental Europe, cross-border interconnections took place before the creation national networks. The process of national interconnection slowed down and was restricted to the radial operation of power plants […]

Solar Thermal Heat for Water and Buildings

The solar thermal industry has used low-tech technology until relatively recently and been largely concerned with small domestic and building applications for heating space or water, or cooking. However, the industry is now taking a more sophisticated direction and progressing to higher-tech applications involving relatively large electricity generation projects in a number of countries. Some […]

Metering Trends

Sub-Metering A largely untapped market, Sub-Metering is set to grow substantially in the coming years in various sectors. Though technology is already widespread in use in water and heat metering applications, electricity is becoming a growing market as well. The case for Sub-Metering is made in different types of markets with large urban built-up areas […]

Natural Gas

Unproved probable reserves Probable reserves are those unproved reserves which analysis of geological and engineering data suggests are more likely than not to be recoverable. In this context, when probabilistic methods are used, there should be at least a 50% probability that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the sum of estimated proved […]
