CHP / RENEWABLE / POWER ROAD SHOWS & CONFERENCES 2013 With many conferences, the more you pay, the more, higher paid industry executives you get from “Big Energy” spouting what is essentially self-serving propaganda. These Claverton / GMP conferences will have by contrast incisive discussions of the real energy issues facing us, taking apart the dramatic failure of years of UK Ene... »
This is a proposal to construct a canal following the 300 meter contour in UK to convey water from Scotland to UK. This would provide primarily water for irrigation in the South, which experiences periodic water shortages, bulk transport of goods, power station cooling, and flood relief. A limited amount of hydro power may be generated. It is based on the Pownall proposal of 1949 http://www.davis... »
Vested interests water down chp cogeneration district heating and energy savings proposal in the new Energy Saving Directive
The intention of the Directive was that Member States shall develop a plan for heating, cooling, and the development of effective national electricity production (CHP) efficient of district heating and cooling. Lobbying changed this to Member States were committed to developing costs and benefits analysis of high efficiency cogeneration, and heating and cooling to determine the potential for gro... »
Are large thermal stores and Combined Heat and Power District Heating (CHP) with District Heating (DH) pipes to deliver heat to buildings is more likely to be a better solution to de carbonising the building heating sector than relying on large-scale electricity storage of renewable or nuclear electricity (the “all electric solution”) delivered to buildings via cable?
One of the most intractable energy problems in Europe is how to deal with the heating load of buildings, (11 EJ/y), which is the largest user of primary energy and is presently met largely with gas. This heat load will not go away due to the expense of insulating the legacy buildings beyond quite modest levels and the new build rate of new low energy buildings is too low to have any significant im... »
Technology Strategy Board Retrofit for Future a study to minimise CO2 emissions for typical UK housing comparing Combined Heat and Power District Heating with Insulation. March 2011
Executive Summary. This work illustrates that the objective of minimising CO2 emissions from a typical late 1960s/early 1970s London houses in a terrace of five houses, is to connect them to district heating. Connection to the district heating gives a lower capital cost per tonne of CO2 displaced than alternative insulation measures. The analysis also shows the importance of considering the se... »
The relationship between our rotten political system, the voting system and energy and other vital policy issues.
Dear All, forgive me for inflicting yet again my views on the relationship between our rotten political system, the voting system and energy and other (health, environment, media, financial, tax, justice) vital policy issues. In a nutshell, it seems blindingly obvious, ( to me anyway) that with our system, where the PM wields enormous power, (for our revolution was never finished properly) then no... »
