Nanoparticles for improving smart-window energy efficiency

Nanoparticles for improving smart-window energy efficiency

Sep 19, 2018 United States
U.S. buildings leak an estimated 30 percent of their energy through inefficient windows, costing consumers an estimated $42 billion annually. But that could begin to change if efforts are successful in commercializing a patented new process for synthesizing vanadium dioxide nanoparticles that makes manufacturing energy-efficient ​"smart windows" economical.

Hybrid diesel + battery power generators

Hybrid diesel + battery power generators

Sep 17, 2018
Diesel generator sets are noisy and polluting; reducing or limiting their use is beneficial for both human health and the environment. Despite this, their ability to provide reliable and weather independent power around the clock means that they are unlikely to be completely eliminated any time soon. Hybridisation of diesel generator sets through the integration of photovoltaics and/or battery storage presents an excellent opportunity to change…
