In the Sahara desert, where the sunshine is intense and present all through the year, there is a huge potential for production of cleaner energy by solar panels. Montreal resident Atigh Ould wanted to explore the potential of this clean energy source, while helping the local nomad communities around his home village of Ividjaren, Mauritania. In February 2012 as a part of the Mauritanian Nomad Festival, Atigh brought solar panels from the Montrealbased energy company MSM Electric. The company exports new energy solutions to more than 60 countries, and has an office in Mauritania's capital Nouakchott.
Atigh and the MSM Electric president, Mohamadou Maguiraga, installed the solar panels together with a team of engineers and nomads from the surrounding area. The system includes eight solar panels connected to a water pump near the bottom of the well, 60 meters below the ground. Powered by the solar panels, the pump can transport water seventy meters upwards, so it reaches a nearby water tower. In the past, water had been pumped from the well using a dieselpowered pump, creating both noise, fumes and expenses. The new solarpowered pump works without any noise, so that you don't notice it is operating,.
Atigh explains. We were sitting around the well, when the engineer suddenly switched on the water pump. Just from being in the sun for some time during the installation, the solar panels had charged enough to power the water pump. The water started flowing from the well, and everyone started playing with the water, singing and celebrating, he recounts. The well can provide 25 tons of water every day, many times double the old capacity. Recent reports from the village of Ividjaren say the nomads are very happy with the solar panels.
Solar Energy Limitless Possibilities Isaac Asimov on Solar Energy NAE E4U2 Tutorial Contest 2015
We need some other project so huge that it can only be done by all the nations of the world acting together to the best of their ability, we need a project so all encompassing that we can manage to have all the various nations work at it and be glad to have it. Something that would create something that all of the nations could benefit from. If we can build power stations in space, if we can use energy directly from the sun converted into microwaves and beaming down to the Earth, we would finally have energy free of geography.We.
Wouldn't have coal that existed in some nations and not in others. Oil, in which some nations were rich and others were poor. We wouldn't forever have to have the manufacturers exploit agriculturalists or the raw material owners, exploit those who need it, and so on. We would have something out in space that all contributed to, and that reached all equally. Space would be equally reachable by all parts of the Earth, the energy that came down would go as easily to one part of the Earth as to another.
Methode AC6000 RackMounted Battery BackUp
Casual percussion music One of the pieces of feedback we received from data center customers when going in and installing rack systems and addressing other needs is that they are constantly replacing their lead acid based UPSs due to either state of health degradation or just general wear and tear on the lead acid battery. So what the lithium solution allows us to do is take advantage of the great cycle life of lithiumion. It's good for hundreds of cycles as opposed to a handful of cycles, without any degradation to the state of health.
There's a very constant capacity over the life of the battery. So this allows the data center manager to not have to worry about the tradeoff between cycling the battery for knowing whether the battery is good and the fact that that actually degrades the battery at the same time. The AC6000 is in a really compact 2U form factor, so it takes up two rack units in height. It's a standard 19 inch rack width and 32 inch depth, so it fits into pretty much any standard data center rack,.
Including Methode equipment. This is the first lithium ion UPS on the market with this power level. Compared to our competitors, we're looking at a 2U form factor for 6,000 watts, versus 4 or even 8U to get equivalent power and backup time in a lead acid solution. So the compact form factor and less use of the rack allows for a smaller footprint or more capacity, depending on how you want to format your data center. Another great feature of the AC6000 is our ability to do what we call peak shave,.
Which is where we actually supplement the grid. So the AC6000 can supplement that power draw from the battery, and then recharge at a nonpeak time. Lithiumion is considered a sustainable solution because it lasts significantly longer than lead acid. What we have done, in particular, is been very careful with the type of chemistry we're selecting. We're picking a very stable chemistry that performs well, both at end of life and across a wide temperature range. We also are doing extensive safety testing and cycling testing within our own facility.
Sustainable Energy Projects Risk Assessment
In 2008, there were 2,600 Ontario companies in the environment sector broadly representing $7 billion in revenue and 65,000 jobs. But only 100 or so of these companies are currently developing madeinOntario proprietary intellectual property and patented innovations. Principal investigator Salemi's projects in remote sensing for energy usage and sustainable energy technologies, which will help advance small and mediumsized businesses and the college's research capacity, are an undeniably hot area for R and D these days. The opportunity comes down to saving energy and costs for businesses and homeowners, and reducing our.
Dependency on a finite resource fossil fuels. This sectoral demand, along with Ontario public policy, the new Green Energy Act, helped convince the college's Office of Applied Research and Innovation to allocate several rounds of seed funding to Salemi's projects in mechanical engineering technology. Leo Salemi We're at the Kortright Centre where we're looking at one of the research projects we're working on, on solar energy and you see behind me, we have the solar panels and this is basically where we started our research and from this point onward we just.
What is The EIA Energy Information Administration
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is EIA EIA is the abbreviation for the Energy Information Administration. The government agency formed in 1977 as an advisor to the U.S. Department of Energy. The EIA is responsible for objectively collecting energy data, conducting analysis and making forecasts. EIA's reports contain information regarding important energyrelated factors, such as future energy inventories, demand and prices. Its data, analysis and reports are available online to both members of the public and the private sector.
One of the most renowned reports published by the EIA is called This Week In Petroleum. This report is released every Wednesday and contains commentary regarding changes in inventory, demand and other data for crude oil and other petroleum products such as gasoline, distillates and propane. Usually, when this report shows unexpected inventory changes in crude oil and gasoline, it causes a ripple effect across the market, increasing or decreasing what consumers pay at the gas pumps. The Department of Energy Organization Act of 1977 established EIA as the primary federal government authority on energy statistics.
And analysis, building upon systems and organizations first established in 1974, following the oil market disruption of 1973. The EIA conducts a comprehensive data collection program that covers the full spectrum of energy sources, end uses, and energy flows generates short and longterm domestic and international energy projections and performs informative energy analyses. The EIA disseminates its data products, analyses, reports, and services to customers and stakeholders primarily through its website and the customer contact center. Located in Washington, D.C., the EIA had about 370 federal employees and a budget of $117 million in fiscal year 2015.

Israel hamas conflict escalates, Gaza death toll rises
It's the heaviest shelling in Gaza since the IsraelHamas conflict began 13 days ago. The death toll continues to rise, with the number of Palestinians killed now at more than 350,. most of them civilians. As heavy air and naval barrages failed to stop rocket fire from Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces, or IDF, sent troops into Gaza on Thursday. And on Saturday, the IDF began focusing on ground attack after two Israeli soldiers were killed during a gunfight with Palestinian militants. who had used tunnels to cross into Israel to launch an attack.
Converting Waste Water Into Energy
My name is Hong Liu. I'm assistant professor at Oregon State University. I'm currently working on microbial fused cell based technologies trying to recover energy from waste water. The microbial fused cell technology I'm working on is basically using bacteria to harvest bactericide as a catalyst to help to break down organic material in waste water and generate energy from it. I think we try to recover energy from waste water because water and energy are probably the most important, basic fundamental resources of modern civilization. So it affects everybody, actually.
So, the current water infrastructure consumes huge amounts of energy. So each day we need huge amounts of energy to treat waste water. I think we try to say how we can make the waste water treatment process more energy sustainable. According to UNDP, United Nations Development Programme, I think back to 2005, 95 of sewage in developing countries discharge to water body without any treatment. So I think if we can make the whole waste water treating process much cheaper we may have the developing countries to, you know, make the, you know,.
