Building America research benchmark definition : updated December 20, 2007 by R Hendron( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To track progress toward aggressive multi-year whole-house energy savings goals of 40-70% and onsite power production of up to 30%, DOE's Residential Buildings Program and NREL developed the Building America Research Benchmark in consultation with the Building America industry teams. The Benchmark is generally consistent with mid-1990s standard practice, as reflected in the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Technical Guidelines (RESNET 2002), with additional definitions that allow the analyst to evaluate all residential end-uses, an extension of the traditional HERS rating approach that focuses on space conditioning and hot water. Unlike the reference homes used for HERS, EnergyStar, and most energy codes, the Benchmark represents typical construction at a fixed point in time so it can be used as the basis for Building America's multi-year energy savings goals without the complication of chasing a 'moving target'

Small wind electric systems : an Oregon consumer's guide( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Small Wind Electric Systems An Ohio Consumer's Guide provides consumers with enough information to help them determine if a small wind electric system can provide all or a portion of the energy they need for their home or business based on their wind resource, energy needs, and their economics. Topics discussed in the guide include: how to make your home more energy efficient, how to choose the right size turbine, the parts of a wind electric system, determining if there is enough wind resource on your site, choosing the best site for your turbine, connecting your system to the utility grid, and if it's possible to become independent of the utility grid using wind energy. In addition, the Ohio guide provides state specific information that includes and state wind resource map, state incentives, and state contacts for more information
Laying the foundation for a solar America : the million solar roofs initiative by Glenn I Strahs( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Energy Technology Program embarks on the next phase of its technology acceptance efforts under the Solar America Initiative, there is merit to examining the program's previous market transformation effort, the Million Solar Roofs Initiative. Its goal was to transform markets for distributed solar technologies by facilitating the installation of solar systems

An examination of the regional supply and demand balance for renewable electricity in the United States through 2015 by Lori Bird( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the balance between the demand and supply of new renewable electricity in the United States on a regional basis through 2015. It expands on a 2007 NREL study (NREL/TP-670-42266) that assessed the supply and demand balance on a national basis. As with the earlier study, this analysis relies on estimates of renewable energy supplies compared to demand for renewable energy generation needed to meet existing state renewable portfolio standard (RPS) policies in 28 states, as well as demand by consumers who voluntarily purchase renewable energy. However, it does not address demand by utilities that may procure cost-effective renewables through an integrated resource planning process or otherwise
Opportunities and challenges for development of a mature concentrating photovoltaic power industry by S. R Kurtz( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes the current status of the CPV industry and is updated from previous versions to include information from the last year. New information presented at the CPV-7 conference is included along with the addition of new companies that have announced their interest in CPV, and estimates of production volumes for 2010 and 2011
A techno-economic analysis of BEV service providers offering battery swapping services by Jeremy Neubauer( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) offer the potential to reduce both oil imports and greenhouse gas emissions, but high upfront costs, battery-limited vehicle range, and concern over high battery replacement costs may discourage potential buyers. A subscription model in which a service provider owns the battery and supplies access to battery swapping infrastructure could reduce upfront and replacement costs for batteries with a predictable monthly fee, while expanding BEV range. Assessing the costs and benefits of such a proposal are complicated by many factors, including customer drive patterns, the amount of required infrastructure, battery life, etc. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has applied its Battery Ownership Model to compare the economics and utility of BEV battery swapping service plan options to more traditional direct ownership options. Our evaluation process followed four steps: (1) identifying drive patterns best suited to battery swapping service plans, (2) modeling service usage statistics for the selected drive patterns, (3) calculating the cost-of-service plan options, and (4) evaluating the economics of individual drivers under realistically priced service plans. A service plan option can be more cost-effective than direct ownership for drivers who wish to operate a BEV as their primary vehicle where alternative options for travel beyond the single-charge range are expensive, and a full-coverage-yet-cost-effective regional infrastructure network can be deployed. However, when assumed cost of gasoline, tax structure, and absence of purchase incentives are factored in, our calculations show the service plan BEV is rarely more cost-effective than direct ownership of a conventional vehicle

Analysis of biodiesel blend samples collected in the United States in 2008 by T. L Alleman( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The quality of B20 (20 vol% biodiesel, 80 vol% petroleum diesel fuel) in the United States was sampled in 2008. Thirty-two samples from retail locations and fleets using B20 were tested against the proposed D7467 B6-B20 specification, which took effect later in 2008. Sixty percent were "2% (nominally) B20. Twenty-five percent failed the proposed minimum induction period stability of 6 hours; the overall average was 8.4 hours. All B20 samples met proposed specifications for acid value, cetane, and ash. Ion chromatography was used to determine free and total glycerin in B20 blends. Results showed that all the B100 used for blending met D6751 glycerin specifications. Samples were analyzed by multidimensional gas chromatography to determine the B100 feedstock; most was soy-derived; some was animal-derived. The average dissolved water in B20 samples was 130 ppm, 30% higher than the typical saturation level of diesel fuel. Particulate contamination in the B20 was below 20 mg/L in every case but one

Feasibility study of economics and performance of solar photovoltaics at the Kerr McGee site in Columbus, Mississippi : a study prepared in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency for the RE-Powering America's Land Initiative, siting renewable energy on potentially contaminated land and mine sites by Joe Simon( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in accordance with the RE-Powering America's Land initiative, selected the Kerr McGee site in Columbus, Mississippi, for a feasibility study of renewable energy production. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) provided technical assistance for this project. The purpose of this report is to assess the site for a possible photovoltaic (PV) system installation and estimate the cost, performance, and site impacts of different PV options. In addition, the report recommends financing options that could assist in the implementation of a PV system at the site
