Smart Water Grid and Pump Station Monitoring

Posted by Kari Grosser on Dec 12, 2016 9:25:00 AM

System Introduction

Under the impetus of Internet of Things technology, water supplies will be equipped with an intelligent water network. Water pumping stations are the most important node in a water network, the booster pumping station can influence the public water, the drainage pumping station can ensure normal drainage during flood season to protect people from floods. With the rising costs of life and an increase in areas of water, the supervision of the water pumping station must rely on science and technology, to reduce the inspection cycle or achieve unmanned control. By installing the water network information system, the relevant department can see the operating status of the pump station, and can also record the efficiency parameters to provide the basis for equipment maintenance, and significantly increase management efficiency.

Storing Renewable Energy

Posted by Chuck Harrell on Jan 18, 2016 11:00:00 AM

One of the problems with electricity is that it's really difficult to store.  Batteries leak, are slow to charge up, and are fantastically bulky and expensive for large amounts of power which is also the problem with renewable energy. When the wind blow and sun shines, electricity is generated but it can't be stored for use when it's calm or dark.  It also can't be stores for future use when there is exceptionally strong winds.  Subsequently, many of the benefits of these environmentally power sources are derided.

Solar Energy - Using Flexible Solar Cells

Posted by Chuck Harrell on Jan 4, 2016 11:00:00 AM

We're used to seeing solar panels on roofs and outside building and we know they are cumbersome and not ideal for all buildings.  Although popular, it's this lack of flexibility that has restricted their uptake.   But now an Australian company could be about to change that.

Less CO2 in your air

Posted by Chuck Harrell on Nov 30, 2015 11:27:00 AM

Cleaning up the air around us and helping to have less CO2 is a global challenge and although trees do some of the work, it will take more than can be planted to do an effective job.  This is why a new mechanical solution from Carbon Engineering received so much interest.  Carbon Engineering's idea is to capture the air around us, extract the CO2 into a special membrane, absorb the gas into a liquid, and convert that into pellets which are then combined with hydrogen to make fuel.
