If you need a quick solution to your energy needs and you are in short of project financing, installing used power plant equipment may be the answer. Read on to find about what you should know when buying used power plant equipment.
All objects in the universe resonate at their natural frequency when excited. This can cause catastrophic failures in structures, machines, and components. How is this relevant in a power plant scenario? Read about these failures …
Gas engines are a more economical and environmentally friendly choice for low output power, generation using gaseous fuels. This article describes the functioning of gas engines and looks at how they score over gas turbines in the low output range.
Cofiring biomass in a coal fired boiler is like a cart drawn by a horse and a mule. What are the advantages?
Is it a fact that windmills and cell towers kill millions of birds every year? Many activists are concerned over mankind’s intrusion into migratory bird patterns. But is this concern justified?
How cold fusion process can be triggered or replicated is the big question. Production of energy without production of radioactive waste and radioactivity at room temperature looks like a dream. If the claims are verified we may be able to provide a small cold fusion generator for every home.
New motivations have resulted in a number of tenders to construct small hydropower projects in the U.S. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Security Program for Small Hydropower Projects is implementing welcome change to assist in the licensing procedure.
