Thermoelectrics Enters the Fast Track

Thermoelectric cooling, heating, and harvesting is partly a great success now, partly to be a success later. First to analyze this big picture is the new IDTechEx report, "Thermoelectric Cooling, Heating, Harvesting: 90 Companies' Achievements and Strategies Appraised with Roadmap 2022-2042".

Mines Transition to Electricity Earners

Mines Transition to Electricity Earners

Mines increasingly use solar power so they increasingly need energy storage for hours, due to load-source mismatch, up to seasonal because solar is feeble in winter. This can transition to battery-free energy storage intimately using mine assets for grids and local industry and communities when the mine is expired as a source of minerals. This is what we cover in this article, ending with a slide on how the same applies for electricity generators.

Mine Electrification Examples, Players

The control of industrial vehicle emissions has increasingly become the focus of stringent limitations on exhaust constituents such as NOx, CO and particulate matter, as such engine manufacturers have begun introducing innovative design changes and sophisticated engine control systems to reduce the major pollutants in diesel exhaust and comply with each successive tier level.

Bridge Energy to be Harvested in Pioneering Research Project

Bridge Energy to be Harvested in Pioneering Research Project

Unused energy trapped within bridges is to be harvested in a major new international project. Traffic and wind regularly cause low frequency vibrations to ripple through bridge building materials such as steel and concrete. This energy would normally travel away from its source before dissipating but academics have recognised an opportunity. They intend to capture and recycle this untapped source by using the principles of physics.

Algorithms Predict Output of Solar Cells

In line with modern trends, if something needs predicting, you can safely bet that artificial intelligence will make an appearance. To date, there are many algorithms that can estimate the power produced by photovoltaic systems several hours ahead by learning from previous data and analyzing current variables.

Award for Europe's Largest "Fruitvoltaic" System

Award for Europe's Largest "Fruitvoltaic" System

The project in Babberich has a capacity of 2.67 MWp and is spread over 3.3 hectares of a raspberry farm. Due to the special construction of the semi-transparent photovoltaic roof, there is no need for plastic arches to protect against extreme weather events. The solution provides a stable climate for growing fruits and generates green energy at the same time.
