Building America research benchmark definition : updated August 15, 2007 by R Hendron( Book )

9 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'

Wind turbine generator system duration test report for the Gaia-Wind 11 kW wind turbine by Arlinda A Huskey( Book )

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

This test was conducted as part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Independent Testing project. This project was established to help reduce the barriers of wind energy expansion by providing independent testing results for small turbines. In total, five turbines are being tested at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NRELs) National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) as a part of this project. Duration testing is one of up to five tests that may be performed on the turbines, including power performance, safety and function, noise, and power quality tests. The results of the testing will provide the manufacturers with reports that may be used for small wind turbine certification. The test equipment includes a Gaia-Wind 11 kW wind turbine mounted on an 18 m monopole tower. Gaia-Wind Ltd. manufactured the turbine in Denmark, although the company is based in Scotland. The system was installed by the NWTC Site Operations group with guidance and assistance from Gaia-Wind
Laying the foundation for a solar America : the million solar roofs initiative by Glenn I Strahs( Book )

"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
Analysis of the use of wind energy to supplement the power needs at McMurdo Station and Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antarctica by E. Ian Baring-Gould( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes an analysis of the inclusion of wind-driven power generation technology into the existing diesel power plants at two U.S. Antarctic research stations, McMurdo and Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Staff at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) conducted the analysis. Raytheon Polar Services, which currently holds the private sector support contract for the two research stations, was a major contributor to this report. To conduct the analysis, available data were obtained on the wind resources, power plant conditions, load, and component cost. Whenever possible, we validated the information. We then used NREL's Hybrid2 power system modeling software to analyze the potential and cost of using wind turbine generators at the two aforementioned facilities. Unfortunately, the power systems and energy allocations at McMurdo and South Pole Station are being redeveloped, so it is not possible to validate future fuel use. This report is an initial assessment of the potential use of wind energy and should be followed by further, more detailed analysis if this option is to be considered further

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

Linearity testing of photovoltaic cells : preprint( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photovoltaic devices are rated in terms of their peak power with respect to a specific spectrum, total irradiance, and temperature. To rate photovoltaic devices, a reference detector is required whose response is linear with total irradiance. This paper describes a procedure to determine the linearity of the short-circuit current (Isc) versus the total irradiance (Etot) by illuminating a reference cell with two lamps. A device is linear if the current measured with both lamps illuminating the cell is the same as the sum of the currents with each lamp illuminating the cell. The two-lamp method is insensitive to the light spectra or spatial nonuniformity changing with irradiance. The two-lamp method is rapid, easy to implement, and does not require operator intervention to change the irradiances. The presence of room light only limits the lowest irradiance that can be evaluated. Unlike other methods, the two-lamp method does not allow the current to be corrected for nonlinear effects

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
Multi-layer inkjet printed contacts for silicon solar cells : preprint( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ag, Cu, and Ni metallizations were inkjet printed with near vacuum deposition quality. The approach developed can be easily extended to other conductors such as Pt, Pd, Au, etc. Thick highly conducting lines of Ag and Cu demonstrating good adhesion to glass, Si, and printed circuit board (PCB) have been printed at 100-200 degrees C in air and N2 respectively. Ag grids were inkjet-printed on Si solar cells and fired through the silicon nitride AR layer at 850 degrees C, resulting in 8% cells. Next generation inks, including an ink that etches silicon nitride, have now been developed. Multi-layer inkjet printing of the etching ink followed by Ag ink produced contacts under milder conditions and gave solar cells with efficiencies as high as 12%
