Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) researchers have designed a new system that reduces the energy gains and losses of buildings through their façade, managing to reduce the energy consumption due to air flow. Two researchers from School of Building Engineering at UPM have developed a ventilated façade with a double chamber and flow control device […]

Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands scientists have invented a revolutionary reactor that coverts nitrogen from the atmosphere into NOx, the raw material for fertilizer. In theory the method is up to five times as efficient as existing processes, that would enable farms to have a small-scale installation without the need for a big […]

University of California Berkeley researchers in the College of Environmental Design working in Singapore show that slightly raising indoor temperatures and equipping office workers with smart fans saves significantly on overall office building energy costs while maintaining employee comfort. The research was conducted by a consortium of engineering specialists in the U.S. and Asia led […]

Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have developed a novel method that could yield lower-cost, higher-efficiency systems for water heating in residential buildings. Described in a new report the newly termed “semi-open” natural gas-fired design reduces the cost and complexity of traditional closed gas-fired systems by streamlining, and even eliminating, certain components. The team of scientists […]

Researchers at Aarhus University have found how consumers can save money for heating using about 10 percent more energy for heating. Its an idea electric utilities are sure to work on. On the other hand the new study shows that it is possible to save money and reduce carbon dioxide emission by using more energy. […]
