I'd like to understand what solutions are used with in to wheel motors get power to oscillating component as it follows the bumps and turns without fatigue in the cable
It really only shows that in some areas the TREND is decreasing but that does not equate to a decrease in the rate of emissions from Any of those sites. That would be a different question and the answer would be different. This article abstract we see here shows the target audience is - well basically scientifically illiterate and incapable of understanding the language used. The type who would use this as evidencee of something totally unrelated. The uneducated experts that we see are the oil and gas industry shrills , climate deniers and born to rule morons that - unfortunately somehow manage to scam their way into government. I wouldn't be surprised if the 2015 date barely scrapes the new year as we know that horizontal fracking has really only more recently started to show the much prized returns to America's oil independence. The other unanswered question is the only one that really matters. The national methane emissions from natural gas pipelines and total infrastructure. As plainly exponential production increases equals higher emissions across the total continent. Once respected NOAHH should not be politicised in this way.
New to me but 'Utility' seems progressive and informative like it would appeal to the readers here. There is some on sodium ion. About: "Utility is the title of choice for decision makers at all levels of water and energy utilities, as well as other major players like consulting engineers and first-tier contractors. Utility is integrated across print and online, and explores the biggest news and issues across the utility industry. It is Australia’s only dedicated utility magazine, and covers all areas of the utility sector, including water and sewer, gas, electricity, communications and the NBN. (that's National Broadband Network) Every issue of Utility features thought-leading content from senior figures and independent experts in the utility space. These industry leaders look at major projects, policy, technologies, equipment, processes and the significant factors impacting Australia’s utilities now and in the future. Utility is Australia’s most powerful and widely-read communication tool for the utility industry." The a.u. federal elections are due in a week with climate change top on the concerns. Federal Labor is the major party currently in opposition. The Science party is the geek end of possible.
An edit function would be icing but nil makes for disciplined texting so can't really complain.
Of course the tailpipe emissions are better than 60% of conventional but the fugitives can give a worse than number. So fracking with their water table dust actors is a non starter. Like if this fossil dude don't stack try another fossil angle that can be sold as 40% lower CO2 except fugitive emissions can tell the lie as it is easily not any benefit . So sad for the deceiving promote any plausible (if they have a scintilla on of ethics - in their mind) the medium of peer reviewed evidenced baseball science says All fossil fuels buried and staying buyers are tesponsoble for nothing more than 1000's of years of climate statistis that have enabled civilisation to reach it's supposed pinnacle we mostly accept as modernity. The NG dream has been debunked conclusively from science based aggregated from published peer reviewed analysis sadly. They can try to sell the same disproved as failed in real time dreams but if reason matters it (NG) is a non starter as far as holy grains are concerned. No magic bullets here just more magic bulshit.
No mistaking it's function as it certainly looks like a tram or train but with the advantage of not needing track or caternary so effectively route agnostic next stop can be driverless.
I think we can assume that numbers are always quoted for the process without the extra handling or in this case that required to convert the raw product to its refined product. IE assume it is a lab spec to feed stock. I don't agree much need for such a system to run continuously. There will surely be varying concentrations of C02 as with the daily circadian or monthly and yearly flux found in nature. The concentration would simply build when not being drawn down and so be at a greater concentration when the process restarts
It states half the resistance (esr) and higher energy density by 10 kW (sec?) than traditional activated carbon designs. Military specs are usually seen as most demanding. 'Curved graphene' as referred to is but one of many structured carbon materials that are under examination for improved capacitor performance in electrical and electronic applications. The ability to build such and many other scaffold structures utilising a variety of imaginative ' nano technology' techniques has promise to creating materials with properties we /they (engineers chemists and physicists) could previously only dream of.
Low resistance so low losses operating in much shorter time and accompanied by high number of cycles are the prize. More recently with the increased interest in energy saving and timing we see many new applications proven. Increasing use in everyday commercial applications can't be far away.
The photo above shows H2 is added as the 'hydro treatment after heat treatment(s?) to 450oC over 5 different catalysts. As you would expect to see much of the necessary infrastructure at current oil refineries you could say this process can help close the loop(s). Recycled waste oils have been shown equal to virgin base. Not sure how contamination affects the processes but presume fats and cooking oils etc would be accommodated well. It will bring a much needed new industry if it can help convert the scrap tyre mountains. I guess there will be other valuable product steams as sulphur steel etc for reuse as while saving costly and toxic landfill.
The flaw in arguments along the lines of those made by Peter are not so much the question of cherry picking as that can be shown on both sides rather that it doesnt take account of likely improvements expected as grid emissions benefit from increasing renewable inputs at the same time as the e-vehicle offerings continue to better. We know that the hydrocarbon vehicles lose compliance over time as well as having the disincentive of high maintenance disincentives that are not a associated with ev's. Also important to recognise that developing industries will benefit from expandig market share. We need to consider the additive contribution not isolated examples of bottlenecks in supply chains or work arounds and redesigns of grids and supply chain etc.
A comprehensive approach that ticks every item on any wish list. Presumably the reverse gear(s) can or could work independently on the two motor version.
That's not a criticism of Mitsubishi or their effort when so many get the guernsey for not bothering to try.
Some studies have shown N.G. can be higher methane to CO2 than coal or petroleum owing to fugitive emissions. The (gas) industry itself states in its operations manuals that leaks are not a concern unless they are major. The less easily quantified question is what are the actual fugitive emissions from coal or oil? Ifthe question is never asked the answer is (conveniently) not counted. Same goes for you beut co2 emissions from motorised personal transport that shows only 1/2 at best the actual on road carbon emissions. As long as we only consider the end use or 1st or second degree of seperation we can see almost any shade of lipstick.
You know thosenights at the pub and people are just talking shite as usual? I feel sorry for you! Coal will always have more value in the ground than out.
Most of the population live coastal which is where the power is needed with the dryer inland sites being remote from good grid connection. Pumped hydro apparently has low carbon footprint and as it recycles much of it's water there is less requirement for inflow, dams, flooding valleys etc. Much groundwater could benefit to some degree from reverse osmosis or similar for drinking and irrigation. But of course there is also concern about using large volumes of groundwater as it is becoming better understood to be a finite resource. there are some very successful solar farm / big battery / horticultural greenhouse enterprises in drylands where insect pests are not and there is plenty of sunshine. One uses a redundant wastewater discharge pipe to pump seawater in. Sundrop Farms' original pilot facility desalinated seawater but did not return waste brine to Spencer Gulf. The brine was collected in ponds from which salt could be harvested.[19] The company's brine management plan changed with its 20 hectare expansion in 2014. Sundrop Farms sought and received approval from the South Australian Environment Protection Authority to discharge waste brine into Spencer Gulf at a salinity of 60 parts per thousand. The expanded facility discharged its brine into the cooling water outflow channel at the existing coal-fired Port Augusta power stations.[18][needs update] Environmental approval from the Commonwealth Government via referral under the EPBC Act[20] was not required of or sought by Sundrop Farms for this project. Sundrop Farms continues to investigate commercially viable solutions for the recovery of minerals from brine at a large scale. Wiki.
Rear steer assist has been available for many years on passenger vehicles but while benefit to longer heavier vehicles while much more useful, is uncommon . The extra cost may not be particularly problematic when the components are duplicated. The chassis sk8board lends itself to so many on and off road or yard applications and that could includes scalable xtra short or extended wheelbase versions. forklifts to self powered trailers come in many configurations where a common platform and components within the class duty rating would be a game changer. Having common components for front and rear axles means that two wheel drive versions and why not six ? is within reach.
In .au abandoned open cut mine sites are often seen as environmental concerns including from polluted waters. Moneys posted as bond for remediation are not close to the costs however many such sites are proposed for pumped hydro. The grid is dispersed so somewhat smaller scales than might be sought than for higher density larger scale opps so works fine for distributed grid stabilisation and backup.
Ethanol as a fuel gets raps from +++ all the way to --- for emissions etc. I'm firmly of the belief that used correctly it is a +++ good product but experience suggests there are a few proviso's I.E. lower energy content/ volume could cause lean burn issues in certain applications as when fuel trim is set very close to it limit. That is generally not a problem for production engines especially once the motor is 'run in'. It can be problematic when left for extended periods in small motors and cars owing to its gumming and water cycling aspects. Hardly surprising that different studies will have wildly differing outcomes if there are wide ranging factors from the inputs from water use weather fertiliser land management and conversion. We know the same from Palm oil plantations and land clearing conversion etc. The elephant in the room that is not mentioned is the need for cellusosic pathway and the carbohydrate food crops to reduce the global agricultural footprint to meet greenhouse reduction targets.
I was impressed when Tesla unlocked its technology all those years ago. Far better to grow the industry and it's reputation than hobble it with lawyers and square wheels. If manufactures don't understand that there is more value in goodwill and focusing on delivering the best product they can they can't really claim to be in the interests of customers.
The realisation of this concept has been alluded to for several years so its very good to hear of a first proof project. It would seem obvious that for a substantial percentage of the grid to be reliably delivered by renewables there will be times when large amounts of surplus generation will occur which will of course have an increasing suite of options for direct use. Hydrogen from this source will have to compete and justify ' with demands from various others which we can assume will recognise ways to utilise the resource. I think the most helpful consequence to today is that (as has been noted by the policy analysts) it gives a green light to large scale R.E. roll out. We seem to be in a place where the RE marketplace sees no question of oversupply from any currently conceivable reality. That should be a very encouraging signal to a market that has been getting all the right signals already for some time.

I agree a shrill is a shrill is a shrill. A troll is a troll and a nong - well. So why bother replying to f.w's? For a start it is sometimes necessary to call the lie and the moronic statement . E.P. obviously enjoys his trolling and wasting our time. To say that renewables is worthless is absolutely up to (his her their?) form. Pathetic.
Presumably there are (could be) e wheel motors, various servos as well as matched and close coupled pumps to the hydraulic rams.
