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 598 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
Analysis of biodiesel blend samples collected in the United States in 2008 by T. L Alleman( )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 581 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

Profiling the built-in electrical potential in III-V multijunction solar cells( )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We report on a direct measurement of the electrical potential on cross-sections of GaInP2/GaAs multiple-junction solar cells by using an ultrahigh-vacuum scanning Kelvin probe microscope (UHV-SKPM). The UHV-SKPM allows us to measure the potential without air molecules being adsorbed on the cross-sectional surface. Moreover, it uses a GaAs laser with photon energy of 1.4 eV for the atomic force microscope (AFM) operation. This eliminated the light-absorption-induced bottom-junction flattening and top-junction enhancement, which happened in our previous potential measurement using a 1.85-eV laser for the AFM operation. Combining scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and SKPM measurements, we found that the potential height at steps of the GaAs substrate depends on the step direction, which is probably a direct result of unbalanced cations and anions at the steps
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( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 562 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
Polyvinyl chloride plastics in municipal solid waste combustion : .iImpact upon dioxin emissions : a synthesis of views( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the issue of whether the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastics content of municipal solid waste (MSW) is a significant contributor to emissions of chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (dioxins) that are associated with MSW combustion. Indications based on a consideration of this issue are developed through a synthesis of available information. While there is convincing experimental evidence that various conditions can cause production of dioxins when PVC is thermally treated, a fundamental issue that remains to be solved is how these findings relate to operating conditions that are characteristic of well designed, maintained and operated MSW combustion facilities, equipped with modern air pollution controls. These findings largely have been derived from laboratory or pilot scale experimentation and from full-scale studies that have carried out at facilities of varying design and purpose

Geothermal, the energy under our feet geothermal resource estimates for the United States by Bruce D Green( )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On May 16, 2006, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory hosted a geothermal resources workshop with experts from the geothermal community. The pupose of the workshop was to re-examine domestic geothermal resource estimates. The participating experts were organized into five working groups based on their primary area of expertise in the following types of geothermal resource or application: Hydrothermal, Deep geothermal systems, Direct use, Geothermal heat pumps, and Co-produced and geopressured. The workshop found that the domestic geothermal resource is very large, with significant benefits
