Gaston Behal addresses some of the impediments to the energy efficiency improvement of rented homes versus private ownership homes, which is not only an Irish problem but a European one, as the residential sector accounted for almost 27% of the total energy consumption in the EU-27 countries in 2010 according to Eurostat.
In the future, electric vehicles could boost renewable energy growth by serving as 'energy storage on wheels' – charging their batteries from the power grid as they do now, as well as reversing the flow to send power back and provide support services to the grid.
Research demonstrates pathway to sustainably produce biojet fuel domestically and meet country's growing aviation fuel demand.
A new approach sheds light on the behaviour of turbulent structures that can affect the energy generated during fusion reactions, with implications for reactor design.
Commercial property owners can fulfil the rising demand for on-site renewable energy thanks to a revolutionary bladeless wind energy solution that can be integrated with current solar energy systems and building electrical systems.
