Pay-per-use approaches to air conditioning and more
In your office you may have a photocopier which is leased on a pay-per-use basis. The same approach is being applied in the cooling industry. The idea of Cooling as a Service (CaaS), enables customers to leap-frog to the best solutions available in their markets, while incentivising suppliers to improve maintenance, increase efficiency, reduce energy use, maximise the use of equipment & reutilisation of components. Today, CaaS is saving more than 68 GWh of electricity & 36,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually ( = 50,000 return flights from London to New York) Win:Win 4 planet, consumers & business.
Mallorca is a Spanish island known for its sun, coastline, architecture, wineries, fresh produce farms, and stunning beaches. It is also aspiring to be a self-sufficient green island or perhaps a Green Hysland. In their latest bid to reducing the island's emissions Acciona, Enagas, Hydrogenics, Cemex, the Government's Instituto para la Diversificacion y Ahorro de la Energia (IDAE) are collaborating on a green hydrogen pilot. Once operating it should produce up to 330 tonnes of green hydrogen (via solar power) for industrial energy needs. Any excess could potentially be injected into the gas grid. https://renews.biz/65509/acciona-partners-on-mallorca-green-hydrogen-scheme/
No-one wants an unstable electricity grid. With more renewables coming on-line every day, system strength and stability relies in part on effective management of inertia.Reactive Technologies have developed a data measurement & analytics tool which provides real-time tracking of grid inertia at a previously unavailable level of granularity and precision.This in turn supports more immediate, targeted and cheaper, system interventions to stabilise the grid. https://www.reactive-technologies.com/grids/
