  • Advanced Conversion: Maximising the Potential for Energy from Waste
    One of the most readily-available and viable solutions to help address the challenge of our growing energy needs is Energy-from-Waste (EfW) – which has the potential to take a multitude of waste streams (such as municipal solid waste) and convert them into energy. We look at how modern techniques can make the technology more efficient.
  • Sustainability in bioenergy
    Biomass is a very versatile resource that can be used to produce heat, electricity, transport fuels and a range of chemicals and materials. It is used in all these applications today, and its future demand is estimated to grow substantially.
  • Wind: Does the cost per kilowatt hour outweigh the benefit?”
    In an increasingly difficult economic climate, with consumers facing increasingly high bills for their electricity, there is a clear demand from many international governments for increasing alternative means of energy supply to the grid.

  • Community-scale photovoltaic-powered electrodialysis desalination systems for Indian villages
    Photovoltaic-powered electrodialysis (PV-ED) is justified as an energy- and cost-effective means of desalinating groundwater in rural India, and the design requirements are presented for a village-level system.
  • Renewable Power Generation 2013 Renewable Power Generation 2013
    This special Renewable Energy Focus power generation report reviews the latest REMIPEG (Renewable Electricity Market, Installed Power and Annual Electricity Generation) report, carried out in the first half year of 2014 and presenting an overview for the status of the renewable energy market through the end of 2013.
  • Focus: Interview Focus: Interview
    Renewable Energy focus magazine caught up with Tristan Fischer, CEO of renewable energy developer Lumicity Ltd. Topics included Lumicity’s massive project to retrofit biomass heating systems for Bernard Matthews’ turkey farms as well as the general benefits of biomass heat.
  • Renewables in smart grids: Part II Renewables in smart grids: Part II
    In the first installment of this feature, REFocus contributor Cristina Brooks discussed the basics of smart metering in relation to energy storage. Part II delves into greater detail, comparing grid and energy storage issues and metering concepts in California, Sweden and Canada.

  • 2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Solar Thermal
    The solar thermal power market is seeing growth after a period of uncertainty. At the end of 2013 there was approximately 3.8 GW of installed CSP capacity globally, and newly installed capacity increased more than 60% to roughly 1.17 GW last year.
  • Concentrated Solar Power in the USA
    This guide provides exclusive data on the current project pipeline in the United States, as well as the future growth potential of the domestic market. Furthermore, it examines the potential use of CSP in other niche markets and the opportunities for U.S. companies to export their know-how and technology into lucrative markets, such as South Africa, Chile and the MENA region.
  • Evaluating the impact of chemical waste: How safety and the bottom line can both benefit
    This paper demonstrates that it is possible to reduce chemical costs by identifying and limiting the wastes found in dispensing, storage and application. Reducing these hidden costs will also improve productivity and health and safety in the workplace.
  • Waste & Hazard Walk Workbook
    The Waste & Hazard Walk is a systematic facility tour which looks for ways to improve productivity and safety, with a specific focus on industrial supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE). This free download outlines how your company could benefit from a Waste & Hazard Walk.
  • How to minimise uncertainty when predicting solar irradiance
    Could a Solar Resource Assessment be the difference between a solar plant that performs well and one which under-delivers?
