Decarbonising Heat

Decarbonising Heat

Details  Electricity production in New Zealand is close to 80% from hydro and geothermal. Electric space and water heating are common. A coal Rankine cycle and gas combined cycle power plants are used over the winter months, and gas turbine power plants are used to meet peak demand. The only way to decarbonise the electricity is to switch heating to wood.

Pop the Hydrogen Bubble

Pop the Hydrogen Bubble

Details  If you are an engineer who is intrigued by the idea of Green Hydrogen as a part of the Energy Transition, then you need to learn more about it. Imagine that you have the job of making some energy supply system work for an energy service. Go through all the different ideas - including discovering a Shift Project - that's right innovating. Carry out a Strategic Analysis of the different ideas. You will find that the hydrogen ideas simply and plainly are not feasible. Do whatever you can to get your head and others out of the hydrogen bubble.

Details  Transition Engineering has emerged out of research into energy engineering, but in challenging and complex relationships with society, policy, transport, buildings, economics and un-sustainability. Some very special people have taken years out of their lives to boldly go where no-one has gone before, and to push their creativity to the absolute limits by taking on the truly heretical question of how do we engineer the future that society wants rather than the one we are heading for.Link  www.aemslab.org.nz/Tags    Research
