A letter report issued by the Government Accountability Office with an abstract that begins Federally funded at about $5 billion a year, the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides financial assistance to low-income households for heating and cooling costs. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awards LIHEAP funds based on low-income populations and other factors. Grantees--states, the District of Columbia, territories, and Indian tribes and tribal organizations--then provide energy assistance payments to low-income households. GAO was asked to audit (1) the risk of fraud and abuse in LIHEAP in selected states; (2) case studies of fraudulent, improper, and abusive LIHEAP activity; and (3) key weaknesses in the design of LIHEAPs internal controls framework. To meet these objectives, GAO analyzed LIHEAP data from seven states for fraud indicators, interviewed federal and state officials, performed investigations, and conducted proactive testing in two states using a bogus

An exploration of commercially available technologies that can enhance energy security and address climate change and public policy options crucial to their adoption. Tackling climate change and improving energy security are two of the twenty-first centurys greatest challenges. In this book, Marilyn Brown and Benjamin Sovacool offer detailed assessments of the most advanced commercially available technologies for strengthening global energy security, mitigating the effects of climate change, and enhancing resilience through adaptation and geo-engineering. They also evaluate the barriers to the deployment of these technologies and critically review public policy options crucial to their adoption.Arguing that society has all the technologies necessary for the task, Brown and Sovacool discuss an array of options available today, including high-efficiency transportation, renewable energy, carbon sequestration, and demand-side management. They offer eight case studies from around the world
President Obamas proposed 2012 budget will cut several billion dollars from the governments energy assistance fund for poor people, officials briefed on the subject told National Journal….. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, would see funding drop by about $2.5 billion from an authorized 2009 total of $5.1 billion. The proposed cut will not touch the programs emergency reserve fund, about $590 million, which can be used during particularly harsh cold snaps or extended heat spells, three officials told National Journal.. In 2010, Obama signed into law an omnibus budget resolution that released a total of about $5 billion in LIHEAP grants for 2011. Pointing to the increasing number of Americans who made use of the grants last year, advocates say that LIHEAP is already underfunded. The American Gas Association predicts that 3 million Americans eligible for the program wont be able to receive it unless LIHEAP funding stays at its current level….. Still, despite the ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! It is commonly assumed that households must change their behaviour to reduce the problems caused by increasing levels of fossil energy use. Strategies for behaviour change will be more effective if they target the most important causes of the behaviour in question. Therefore, this paper first discusses the factors influencing household energy use. Three barriers to fossil fuel energy conservation are discussed: insufficient knowledge of effective ways to reduce household energy use, the low priority and high costs of energy savings, and the lack of feasible alternatives. Next, the paper elaborates on the effectiveness and acceptability of strategies aimed to promote household energy savings. Informational strategies aimed at changing individuals knowledge, perceptions, cognitions, motivations and norms, as well as structural strategies aimed at changing the context in which decisions are made, are discussed. This paper focuses on the psychological literature on
PAINESVILLE, Ohio- The HEAP Summer Crisis Program (SCP) began on July 3rd and this year applications will again be processed by Lifeline, Inc., Lake Countys Community Action Agency. Appointments will be scheduled through August 31, 2017..

By John Howat & Philene Taormina Increased accessibility of home and community-based long-term care and related government funding make independent living more possible for many older Americans. High household energy prices and expenditures, however, threaten home energy security of low-income elderly people who seek to age safely in their own homes. Consumer protections that reduce arrearage rates and the shutoff of services may enhance the effectiveness of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program and other energy programs. Various policies, such as the a "affordable energy bargain"-a model program offering long-term affordability and arrearage management options-would protect vulnerable elderly customers from the life-threatening loss of service..

If you are wondering whether there is any way to provide electricity for your household without having to pay any money to your electric company, free energy systems have the answer for you. If fact, believe it or not, you can actually make money by selling electricity to your electric company, using these systems! Free energy systems rely on well founded technology to deliver electricity to its users. These systems, if connected to the power grid, often ends up delivering electricity to the power grid.. Free energy devices utilise free resources available around us, such as the TV and radio waves around us, electrostatic charges present in the atmosphere, and radiant energy coming from outer space, mainly from the sun and other stars. These devices are very easy to install, if you follow the instructions carefully, you can install them yourself.. A good way to set up free energy devices is to interconnect them to the power grid. It will be better to have a battery backup in case of emergency. ...
The discourse on the UNs sustainability goals, the global and national climate protection targets, and the energy transition conclude that the energy system will be changed drastically in the future. This will require a reorganization of the opportunities for individual actors to take action in the energy system. The new energy world does not function solely from top-down decisions, but precisely because of its diversity - the diversity of the actors, the diversity of energy sources, and the variety of system solutions. We aim to integrate key elements of behavioral aspects, air pollution control strategies and multi-criteria decision making processes into energy and climate policy models to analyze how socio-economic changes and systems interactions impact the implementation of energy and climate policy. For this, we are offering, subject to the approval of project funding, a post-doctoral position with the possibility to set up a research group within the department for Energy Economics and ...

Downloadable! This paper applies portfolio-theory optimisation concepts from the field of finance to produce an expository evaluation of the 2020 projected EU-BAU (business-as-usual) electricity generating mix. We locate optimal generating portfolios that reduce cost and market risk as well as CO2 emissions relative to the BAU mix. Optimal generating portfolios generally include greater shares of wind, nuclear, and other nonfossil technologies that often cost more on a standalone engineering basis, but overall costs and risks are reduced because of the portfolio diversification effect. They also enhance energy security. The benefit streams created by these optimal mixes warrant current investments of about Euro 250 - Euro 500 billion. The analysis further suggests that the optimal 2020 generating mix is constrained by shortages of wind, especially offshore, and possibly nuclear power, so that even small incremental additions of these two technologies will provide sizeable cost and risk reductions.
People who cant afford to spend much on housing often end up in old, poorly insulated homes where the rent or mortgage is low but the energy costs are exorbitant; thus, despite their efforts to budget responsibly, the poor condition of their living space limits their ability to get ahead. Federal funds make quality housing more affordable through help with utility bill payment, energy-related crisis assistance, permanent reduction in energy use through weatherization, and repairs necessary to make homes safe and energy efficient. As a result, theres more money in household budgets for other basics such as food, transportation and healthcare. Furthermore, we all benefit from weatherization and energy efficiency measures through increased electric grid reliability and reduced pollution.. The elimination of these services would certainly have an impact in Michigan, where LIHEAP served nearly 455,000 households in budget year 2016. Approximately half of these households were below 75 percent of ...

A survey of household energy consumption pattern was carried out in village Dandesar of tehsil Nowshera, district Rajouri (J&K, India). The major fuel types fulfilling the energy demand of local people in study area were wood, LPG, crop residue and dung cake. Fuel wood constituted the major share of consumption which was 100.74×106 kcal/month, while dung cake utilization was found to be least. The total fuel consumption in the study area was 111.49×106 kcal/month. The study concluded that income was an important factor in making fuel preferences at household level.. ...
This article examines variation in the income elasticity of household energy demand across the energy expenditure distribution using expenditure data from the five most recent Household Budget Surveys (HBSs) in Ireland: the 1987, 1994/1995, 1999/2000, 2004/2005 and 2009/2010 HBS. The analysis uses a two-stage instrumental variable quantile regression approach and is based on each HBS cross section, as well as the overall pooled observations. The estimated elasticities are compared across low- and high-energy-consumption scenarios and to a benchmark elasticity estimated using two-stage least squares. The results provide evidence that there is significant variation in the income elasticities across the energy expenditure distribution and that care must be taken when using the constant mean elasticity for policy purposes. More specifically, any examination of the future impact of a change in income support policy measures on energy consumption should recognize the substantial context-dependent ...

These issues are investigated in five papers. Potential future growth rates of wind energy and solar photovoltaics, and the associated material requirements are explored, taking the expected service life of these technologies into account. Methodology for assessing net energy return and natural resource use for wind energy systems are analyzed. Potential future availability of lithium and phosphate rock are also investigated.. Estimates of energy and materials required for technologies such as wind energy and photovoltaics vary, and depend on the assumptions made and methods used. Still, it ...
IM De la Fuente, JM Cortes, E Valero, M Desroches, S Rodrigues, I Malaina and L Martinez. On the dynamics of the Adenylate Energy System: Homeorhesis vs Homeostasis. Plos One 9: e108676, 2014 [pdf]. Biochemical energy is the fundamental element that maintains both the adequate turnover of the biomolecular structures and the functional metabolic viability of unicellular organisms. The levels of ATP, ADP and AMP reflect roughly the energetic status of the cell, and a precise ratio relating them was proposed by Atkinson as the adenylate energy charge (AEC). Under growth-phase conditions, cells maintain the AEC within narrow physiological values, despite extremely large fluctuations in the adenine nucleotides concentration. Intensive experimental studies have shown that these AEC values are preserved in a wide variety of organisms, both eukaryotes and prokaryotes. Here, to understand some of the functional elements involved in the cellular energy status, we present a computational model conformed by ...

This article is Part 2 of a 3 part series that outlines the three basic energy systems used in sport, their interactions with one another, and how to train each one. Below the Introduction (technical explanation), we offer 7 sessions (in 3 stages) for training the Glycolytic System. Introduction Oxygen availability only determines the fate of the end product and is not required for the actual process of glycolysis itself. Oxygen availability has been shown to have little to do with which of the two end products, lactate or pyruvate is produced. This is where the terms aerobic meaning with oxygen and anaerobic meaning without oxygen become a bit misleading (5). Alternative terms that are often used are fast glycolysis if the final product is lactic acid and slow glycolysis for the process that leads to pyruvate being funneled through the Krebs cycle. As its name would suggest the fast glycolytic system can produce energy at a greater rate than slow glycolysis- it has greater power. However, because the

Improved industrial energy efficiency is a cornerstone in climate change mitigation. Research results suggest that there is still major untapped potential for improved industrial energy efficiency. The major model used to explain the discrepancy between optimal level of energy efficiency and the current level is the barrier model, e.g., different barriers to energy efficiency inhibit adoption of cost-effective measures. The measures outlined in research and policy action plans are almost exclusively technology-oriented, but great potential for energy efficiency improvements is also found in operational measures. Both technology and operational measures are combined in successful energy management practices. Most research in the field of energy management is grounded in engineering science, and theoretical models on how energy management in industry is carried out are scarce. One way to further develop and improve energy management, both theoretically as well as practically, is to explore how a ...

Hello there, thanks for the links and discussion to my article at EnergyNumbers on UK energy demand and Professor MacKays reading of it. Id like to try to clear up a bit of confusion, and explain a couple of things a bit more clearly.. Yes, its very important that we have an energy system that adds up. To do that, its crucial that we compare total demand with total supply. Or, equivalently, average demand and average supply. If you compare *extreme* demand with *average* supply you cant get a plan that adds up. Hence, MacKays comparison of average renewable supply with an extreme demand is misleading.. By Professor MacKays own figures, and, now, by his own admission, Britain does have enough renewable resources to meet all its energy demands. So even Professor MacKay now acknowledges that Britain could deliver a 100% renewable energy system.. There are lots of inefficiencies in our energy system - some on the supply side (i.e. energy losses at generators), some on the demand side (i.e. ...
Biomass combustion is at the heart of a stove programme. The cooking stove is generally the most important component of the household energy system and more efficient, cleaner burning of woodfuels and agricultural residues offers a major opportunity to improve the living and working conditions of poor women.. For the first ten years or more of improved stove programmes fuel efficiency was pursued, open to the exclusion of other important aspects of the work. This proved an elusive goal and as a result stove programmes achieved little success and were questioned by funders. This lesson has been learned and much progress has now been made in improving the socio-economic orientation of stove and household energy programmes and in recognizing the key role of women.. However, our understanding of the basic issue of stove efficiency must be improved. Incomplete combustion is a waste of energy and we now know that the resulting effect on global warming of high emissions of CO particulates and ...
Department: DGE - Global Ecology. Salary: TBD Competitive Salary. Location: Stanford, CA. We seek to understand basic principles relating to how various cost and performance characteristics of energy technologies would affect their penetration in possible future near-zero-emission energy systems. For example, under what conditions would two different battery technologies, one with higher capital costs and round-trip efficiency and another with lower capital costs but lower round-trip efficiency, be able to co-exist in a future energy system and under what conditions would one of these battery technologies drive out the other? Similar questions can be asked about a wide range of technology choices. It is hoped that the understanding gained would inform R&D investment aimed at near-zero-emission energy system innovation, and also help indicate how deployment choices could help maintain optionality and avoid technological lock-in.. Coming from a physical science and engineering cost perspective, ...
Michael Bagley, president of corporate intelligence firm Jellyfish Operations, and security expert Jennifer Giroux discuss how companies can plan and react in hostile environments.
I have been thinking about this exchange over the weekend and want to make a couple of comments. About energy systems. I have read this material (concerning various energy systems) and want to relay that most of this information is found in coaching materials rather than in exercise physiology texts. I do not know the source of much of this information which, of course, always makes me nervous. Is this information fact, or is it supposition? Certainly we know that there are three primary energy systems; stored, non-robic, and aerobic, available to provide energy to the working muscles. But eight different zones? I agree with Dr Hahn. Trying to identify eight zones, even under controlled situations, doesnt seem possible. Individual variation, diurnal rhythms, and biological noise would seem to be issues that would confound things. Certainly, there exists a continuum in exercise intensity from rest to maximal exercise. Certainly there is a continuum from exercise that is sustainable for seconds ...
Ax. The oil price has broken through the $50 a barrel mark for the first time since November last year.. The price of Brent Crude broke through $50.13 a barrel, with the US benchmark West Texas Intermediate rising to $49.93. The move marks an 80 per cent price rise in Brent crude since lows in January.. Price rises were driven by supply concerns, with Canada and Nigeria seeing a drop in supply. Wildfires in Canada have knocked back the countrys supply by around 1 million barrels a day, while military action in Nigeria has hampered supply.. Supply issues have helped to drive the oil price higher in recent weeks. Earlier this month the attacks in Nigeria and political problems in Venezuela led to a reduction in supply, with the oil price hitting a six-month high on 17 May.. Axa Wealth head of investing Adrian Lowcock says the oil price is now likely to stay around the $50 mark for the rest of the year..

Now more than ever, it is imperative that you be proactive about keeping your home energy efficient. If you do not keep an eye on this area, then you might be spending more money than you need be, as well as negatively impacting the environment with unnecessary energy use. If you are looking to rein in that unnecessary outlay, then it is crucial that you perform a home energy audit so you can figure out where you are hemorrhaging energy efficiency and increasing monthly utility bills.

Nowadays, buildings environmental certifications encourage the implementation of initiatives aiming to increase energy efficiency in buildings. In these certification systems, increased energy efficiency arising from such initiatives must be demonstrated. Thus, a challenge to be faced is how to check the increase in energy efficiency related to each of the employed initiatives without a considerable building retrofit. In this context, this work presents a non-destructive method for electric current sensing to assess implemented initiatives to increase energy efficiency in buildings with environmental certification. This method proposes the use of a sensor that can be installed directly in the low voltage electrical circuit conductors that are powering the initiative under evaluation, without the need for reforms that result in significant costs, repair, and maintenance. The proposed sensor consists of three elements: an air-core transformer current sensor, an amplifying/filtering stage, and a

Energy efficient homes are a vast improvement on traditional home designs by providing a consistent internal temperature for sustained comfort levels. Homes are now designed to limit the exchange of air from inside the house to the outside, reducing air-drafts which provides huge improvements in temperature control, but consequently reduces the availability of fresh air within the building. The solution to providing a regular flow of fresh air into the building at consistent temperatures is to install a Heat Recovery Ventilator system.. To improve airflow in and out of the building, fresh outside air is ducted into the home through a Heat Recovery Ventilator unit that transfers the controlled temperature of the internal air to the incoming external air. The temperature of the external air takes on the heat of the stale internal air before the stale air is exhausted out of the house.. During the colder months, heat is transferred from the warm indoor exhaust air into the cold outdoor supply air ...

Administrative data are produced in the course of providing services to client groups or otherwise undertaking the core business of an agency, and as such, are shaped by the business practices and the environment within which the agency is operating. There are key advantages associated with collating statistics from administrative data. Generally, administrative data essentially takes the form of a census, in that all the data recorded through the administrative process is potentially available for statistical analysis. Hence the data are not subject to sampling error which is associated with survey data. Administrative data also has the capacity for ongoing, efficient data collection without incurring the additional enumeration cost associated with conducting surveys ...
This first review of Mexicos energy policies by the International Energy Agency comes at a momentous time for the countrys energy sector. The broad-based Energy Reform, beginning with the Constitutional changes of December 2013, has continued at a steady and impressive pace. Its reach and scope amounts to one of the most ambitious energy system transformations in decades. The IEA applauds the government of Mexico for the progress made to date.. Starting from a largely closed and monopoly-driven energy market, the reform has taken concrete steps to harness market forces to attract investments and increase production while ensuring transparency and rule of law, improving energy security and strengthening the environmental sustainability of the energy sector.. Some policy areas, such as promoting competition and redesigning emergency preparedness, will have to remain a priority. The transition to open energy markets should continue in a transparent manner, and with regulatory certainty. The new ...

Utilities and energy systems are often the major source of SOx, NOx and CO2 emissions, therefore, emissions control and the management of credits and quotas are tightly interrelated with energy management.. In the case of refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants, energy represents the main cost (second to feedstock) and therefore its reduction has become a bottom line business decision. The energy systems at these sites are inherently complex, with the emissions cost analysis and limits compliance introducing an additional factor to the complexity of the energy costs reduction challenge.. Process plants use different type of fuels, they often operate cogeneration units, their steam networks consist of several pressure levels, there are different types of energy consumers and there are emission limits to be observed. Import or export of electricity in deregulated markets, which could also be traded off with more or less CO2 and other contaminant gaseous emissions, increase the optimization ...
Passive Micro-Direct Methanol fuel cells (micro-DMFCs) can be the power supply solution for the next generation of handheld devices if high volumetric power densities can be achieved. One approach to improve the volumetric power density of passive DMFC designs is to increase the reactive area without a corresponding increase in overall volume by patterning MEAs with corrugated 3-D geometries. In this paper, geometric analysis is presented that demonstrates significant active area gain in fuel cell MEAs patterned with high aspect ratio corrugations. A thermoforming process was used to pattern MEAs with 3-D corrugated geometries using aluminum molds. In order to perform functional tests on 3D corrugated MEAs, the fuel and oxidant reservoirs have been redesigned to accommodate the special packaging requirements of the 3D MEAs. Electrodes were modified to serve as the current collectors and also provided backing layers for catalyst. The simplified design avoids the large clamping force and high ...

The bill states every home owner will receive an energy audit. What is a home energy audit? It is an intrusive visit made by the bureaucrats at the Home Energy Team or a similar group. They will examine and report the way you live your life directly to RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network) . Light fixtures, socket types, spas, hot tubs, windows, appliances, walls and roofs will all be under review. Energy tests will be conducted throughout your house. At the end of the visit you will receive a report and a rating. The report will focus on the changes you need to make and the rating is called a HERS rating (Home Energy Rating System). RESNET will perform the audits through authorized contractors. RESNET has adopted the Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards. The standards set the national procedures for home energy ratings ...
Our society is facing major challenges in many areas due to the energy transition and the associated restructuring of the existing energy systems. Key tasks within this transformation include the intensive development of renewable sources of energy and storing them, establishing connections between energy networks (heat, electricity, and gas) in a decentralized architecture, and equipping these with the appropriate information technology. The only way these tasks can be achieved is by cooperating with a large number of players within society. The "Dialog on energy transition" project at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has set itself the goal of using a range of formats to share information on the transition of the energy system in Germany with various target groups. The countrys citizens will receive essential basic knowledge through explanatory videos, workshops, public forums, and informational tours at KIT. Additional measures such as transdisciplinary seminars and real-life ...
The exact choice for any of these systems will depend, among others, on the power level required and the mission duration. In general, short duration flights (e.g. launch systems) often use batteries and/or fuel cells, while long duration missions rely on solar arrays or nuclear systems. For example, the most distant still operating spacecraft, Voyager-1, contains 3 RTGs delivering 157W each (at its current distance of 1.8x1013 m, the incident solar radiation has dropped to below 0.1W/m2). Besides the power generation, two additional elements of the power system are of critical importance, which are the power control/distribution and storage. All three elements are interconnected as supply and demand may be unbalanced requiring a robust distribution networks to control the output over time. In most cases, the source output also changes over time as the fuel is depleted or the generating/conversion efficiency decreases.. The ongoing activities within the Advanced Concept Team span all the above ...
TIPS : Individual fitness levels mean it is important to workout within your own Target Heart Rate when trying to lose fat weight. Or as a beginner a good tip to use when exercising is to make sure you can still manage a conversation during a workout. In other words you want breathing to be deeper than normal but not out of breathe so you cannot talk.. Protein fluid. Protein is also burned during exercise but this is usually a small percentage. Protein usage may increase to as much as 20% during high intensity training. However again bear in mind that exercising at such high levels of effort are not maintained for long so the actual amount of protein used for energy will still be small in comparison to carbohydrates and fats.. The best way to burn fat. At this stage you may be thinking that the best way to burn fat is to hardly move so the energy system shifts towards higher degree of fat burning. Yes good thinking, in fact resting will shift the energy system into fat burning mode but because ...
The primary role of creatine is recharging ATP, by donating a phosphate ion to the ADP molecule. Muscle fibres generate tension by cutting off a phosphate group from ATP (charged form), turning it into ADP (uncharged from).. Three energy systems provide energy to recharge ADP back into ATP: the ATP-phosphocreatine system, the lactic acid system and the aerobic system. The percentage each energy system contributes depends on the intensity and duration of the activity.. The ATP-phosphocreatine system is the major energy provider for high-intense, explosive actions. This system is limited however by the amount of phosphocreatine that is stored in the muscles. After approximately 10 seconds of high-intense activity all the phosphocreatine is depleted and the ATP-phosphocreatine system can no longer contribute to energy production (recharging ADP into ATP) until it is replenished (approximately 3 minutes of rest). The power output drops when phosphocreatine levels in the muscle cells gets depleted, ...
What is cellular respiration? Cellular Respiration is the process that takes place in cells to convert food into energy. This process is also known as internal respiration. In order to release the maximal amount of energy, the molecules of Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, and Nitrogen which make up our food are stored as a high energy molecule known …. ...
Figure 13 Ratio of fast type FG and FOG to slow type SO fibres in different type athletes In muscle contraction individual types of muscle fibres get activated in accordance with the intensity of muscle movement. About Podcast Contact. Leave a reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment. It is important to note here that the fibre ratio differs in different muscles of the human body. All muscle cells have a little ATP within them that they can use immediately - but only enough to last for about 3 seconds! The energy for ATP resynthesis comes from three different series of chemical reactions that take place within the body. This process creates enough energy to couple with the energy requirements to resynthesize ATP. Regardless, sport-specific conditioning plans and optimal nutritional intake need to be implemented. After maximum power declines around 12 seconds, further intense activity up to approximately 30 seconds results in lactic acid accumulation, a decrease in power, and ...
In 2015, the Japanese government published the Long-term Energy Supply and Demand Outlook based on the Strategic Energy Plan (2014). This outlook presents the ideal structure of energy supply and demand for 2030 that can be realized if appropriate measures are taken to achieve the fundamental objectives of energy policy: safety, energy security, economic efficiency and environmental protection.. Energy efficiency and renewable energy plays a key role in achieving all these objectives because they can contribute to energy independence, to the reduction of oil and gas imports and to the reduction of greenhouse gas emission.. According to this new plan, the final energy demand should save as much as 50.3 billion liters (crude oil equivalent) by 2030. By sector, savings from transport will amount to 16,070 thousand kilo liters, followed by commercial at 12,260 thousand kilo liters, residential sector 11,600 thousand kilo liters and industry at 10,420 thousand kilo liters. Those figures indicate that ...
Distributed energy resources gain an increased importance in commercial and industrial building design. Combined heat and power (CHP) units are considered as one of the key technologies for cost and emission reduction in buildings. In order to make optimal decisions on investment and operation for these technologies, detailed system models are needed. These models are often formulated as linear programming problems to keep computational costs and complexity in a reasonable range. However, CHP systems involve variations of the efficiency for large nameplate capacity ranges and in case of part load operation, which can be even of non-linear nature. Since considering these characteristics would turn the models into non-linear problems, in most cases only constant efficiencies are assumed. This paper proposes possible solutions to address this issue. For a mixed integer linear programming problem two approaches are formulated using binary and Special-Ordered-Set (SOS) variables. Both suggestions ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The role of modal shift in decarbonising the Scandinavian transport sector: Applying substitution elasticities in TIMES-Nordic. AU - Salvucci, Raffaele. AU - Gargiulo, Maurizio. AU - Karlsson, Kenneth Bernard. PY - 2019. Y1 - 2019. N2 - In the Nordics, transportation accounts for almost 40% of energy-related CO2 emissions, a higher share than most European countries. The International Energy Agency identifies modal shift as pivotal for a sustainable transition of the transport sector. This study analyses the role of modal shift in the decarbonisation of the Scandinavian energy system with TIMES-Nordic, the TIMES (The Integrated MARKAL-EFOM System) model depicting the national energy systems of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. For the first time, passenger and freight modal shift is modelled through substitution elasticities for a real case study. Transport elasticities from the literature are discussed in light of the modelling environment, and long-term direct elasticities are ...
Chakra is the word used to describe energy centers in the human body. This term is traditionally associated with philosophies, religions and systems of medicine in the Orient, but is increasingly a term used in conjunction with the scientific study of the aura and of the other human energy functions. Often, the concept of the chakra is as a manifestation of the aura. Many times in such research, the eastern terms for energy functions are used without association with a particular belief system, since Western science does not have usable terms. This can make such energy systems seem quite mystical. the energy system known as Reiki does not refer to chakras in its teachings directly, however, I use the term as a landmark on the body. The energy centers, usually seen as 7 in number, have been traditionally associated with certain human qualities or functions. Briefly, the chakras are: ...

Billions of years ago, the Earth was quite different from what it is today. The primitive atmosphere contained almost no free oxygen, and it was rich in carbon- and hydrogen-containing compounds like water, methane and ammonia. The first photosynthetic organisms (the ancestors of blue-green algae) were so successful that they seriously depleted the atmosphere of both hydrogen and carbon (the two most basic building blocks of life). Ammonia (NH3) was stripped of hydrogen to produce nitrogen (N2), water was stripped of hydrogen to produce oxygen (O2), and methane (CH4) was stripped of hydrogen to produce carbon dioxide (CO2). Through biological photosynthesis, the primitive reducing atmosphere (hydrogen-rich, electron-rich) was gradually converted into our present oxidizing atmosphere (hydrogen-poor, electron-depleted). Although this transformation took many millions of years, it was an ecological catastrophe. Most of the organisms alive at the time were not able to adapt and became extinct. Those ...

The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is considered to be one of the main components that condition the expenditure of the athletes total energy. Therefore an elaboration of a classification of BMR based on high level athletes would be of value in order to establish reference points. This studys objective was to compare BMR among champion athletes some with prevailing "long-term energy system" (L-TES) (marathon, route cyclism, athletic march, n = 16, 25.58 ± 2.79yrs; 173 ± 5.98cm) and others with "short-term energy system" (S-TES) (rowing, n = 10; 23.79 ± 2,79 years; 189 ± 3.84 cm), male athletes. The date of evaluation of BMR gathered after the Olympic and World games is characterized in the Sport Calendar as a period of "post competition". A Mijjnhardt gas analyzer was used for calculating of VO2 and VCO2. Routine procedures were strictly followed in the preparation of basal conditions and during its measurements for BMR calculation. The measurement of the oxygen consumption was taken within 35 ...
From 1978 to the early 1980s Jes Bertelsen was in an ongoing training with the Irish healer Bob Moore, whose understanding of the human energy system had roots in the theosophical tradition. In Jes Bertelsens early work this influence is seen in his focus on the connections between ordinary consciousness, the chakra system, non-physical energy systems, symbols from dream states, states of expanded consciousness and clairvoyance. Among Jes Bertelsens sources of inspiration are also the descriptions of the Christ in the Gospel of Thomas, and the Heart prayer of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. The Eastern Tantric traditions have been a source of inspiration in his work on the relationship between vital energy, sexuality, love and spirituality.[6] In 1989 Jes Bertelsen met the Tibetan Lama Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, who authorized Jes Bertelsen to teach Dzogchen, the pointing out instruction, Tregchöd and thödgal; and to do so using his own judgment as to the most appropriate way to assimilate these ...

Electronic cooling challenge is focused on the high heat flux to be dissipated by the operating fluid. Efficient heat spreaders and dissipators, and compact heat exchangers are in great demand for various applications. In the last decade, cellular structure materials and particularly open cells metal foams have been proposed as possible substitutes for traditional finned surfaces. Several authors have experimentally investigated the thermal performance of different metal foams and periodic heat transfer media. Metal foams present random microstructures that consist in open cells randomly oriented and mostly homogeneous in size and shape. Most commercially available metal foams are based on aluminum, copper, nickel and metal alloys. This paper presents the porosity effects on the thermal behaviour of different 10 PPI (pores per inch) metal foams tested in the experimental facility built at the Dept. of Fisica Tecnica of the University of Padova. In particular, the data points have been collected ...

Theres a common misconception that the three energy systems of the body function like a set of light bulbs, switching from one to the other as the duration of exercise gets longer. Current research shows, however, that the ATP-PC, Lactic and Aerobic systems are used together for almost all physical activity. This program clearly explains how. With the aid of clear, animated diagrams and comments from experts like Peter LeRossignol, this program explains: - Anaerobic and aerobic glycolysis - How myosin and actin use ATP to contract muscles. - Oxygen uptake and oxygen deficit. - The interplay of the three energy systems. - Chronic and acute training effects. This program also has regular breaks for note-taking and discussion to ensure students can grasp this complex topic ...
