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

WASHINGTON, D.C. - March 30, 2015 - (RealEstateRama) - As the Northeast emerges from one of the most brutal winters on record, Rep. Peter Welch and Rep. Peter King (R-NY) have rallied a bipartisan coalition to fight for full funding of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). In a letter to the House Appropriations Committee penned by Welch and King, 146 lawmakers stressed the critical importance of this safety net program to struggling families.. LIHEAP households are among the most vulnerable in the country, the letter reads. For these households, LIHEAP funding has been a lifeline during challenging economic times. Access to affordable home energy is not a luxury - it is a matter of health and safety.. In making the case for full LIHEAP funding, the lawmakers highlighted the following key facts:. · Total LIHEAP funding has declined by $1.7 billion since FY2010 which equates to a 30% reduction.. · The number of households receiving LIHEAP assistance has declined 17.7 ...
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
An integrated floating energy system consisting of different types of energy devices is an ideal option for reducing the levelized cost of energy by enhancing the power production capacity. This study proposes a concept of an integrated energy system by combining two tidal turbines with a floating wind turbine. In order to investigate the power performance and dynamic responses of the hybrid concept, a novel coupled aero-hydro-servo-elastic tool is developed based on a commercial hydrodynamic analysis software package. In addition, a torque-pitch controller and the AeroDyn module are integrated within the coupled tool for evaluating the power performance of the tidal turbines under dynamic inflow conditions. Experimental data and numerical results obtained by OpenFAST are used to verify the accuracy of the coupled tool in predicting dynamic responses of the integrated energy system. The dynamic responses and power production under different environmental conditions are obtained by conducting a ...

As we learned in intro physics, everything is made up of atoms, and atoms are made up of protons, neutrons and electrons. You may have heard the term energy systems mentioned in the gym, at practice-or perhaps your childrens practices-in fitness articles, or other health outlets. Electricity is everywhere, even in the human body. During exercise, your body relies on three basic energy systems: the anaerobic a-lactic system, the anaerobic lactic system, and the aerobic system.Depending on the sports played, athletes rely on one system more than the others.. An understanding of the involved energy systems in a particular sport gives valuable information about the strength qualities necessary in that sport. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked to an array of degenerative illnesses, ranging from diabetes to neurological disorders and even heart disease. Our product picks are editor-tested, expert-approved. This system is anaerobic as it works without oxygen, and does not produce any waste ...
Prosumers, such as energy storage, smart home, and microgrids, are the consumers who also produce and share surplus energy with other users. With capabilities of flexibly managing the generation, storage and consumption of energy in a simultaneous manner, prosumers can help improve the operation efficiency of smart grid. Due to the rapid expansion of prosumer clusters, the planning and operation issues of prosumer energy systems have been increasingly raised. Aspects including energy infrastructure design, energy management, system stability, etc., are urgently required to be addressed while taking full advantage of prosumers capabilities. However, up to date, the research on prosumers has not drawn sufficient attention. This proposal presents the need to introduce a Research Topic on prosumer energy systems in Frontiers in Energy Research. We believe this Research Topic can promote the research on advanced planning and operation technologies of prosumer energy systems and contribute to the carbon

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..

In this chapter, the urban structure will be defined with zero or almost zero energy consumption, followed by pollution parameters. Energy systems are designed as networks of energy-intensive local hubs with multiple sources of hybrid energies, where different energy flows are collected on the same busbar and can be accumulated, delivered, or transformed as needed into the intelligent urban area. For analysis of the purpose function of our energy system, a micro-network of renewable energy sources (RES) is defined by penalization and limitations. By using fuzzy logic, a set of permissible solutions of this purpose function is accepted, and the type of daily electricity consumption diagrams is defined when applying cluster analysis. A self-organising neural network and then a Kohonen network were used. The experiment is to justify the application of new procedures of mathematical and informatics-oriented methods and optimisation procedures, with an outlined methodology for the design of smart areas and

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. ...
European Priorities: Europe has a number of priorities, including reducing dependence on Russia, building infrastructure, expanding renewables and energy efficiency, research and development, reducing energy poverty, and job creation. Discussants held different views on how to prioritize these interests and how to balance short-term interests and longer ones. In a period of high oil prices, the renewable energy, climate, and energy security agendas tend to converge. But in a period of low oil prices, these agendas tend to diverge. Ultimately, discussants said, renewables are attractive when the long-term view is prioritized, but their appeal is decreased when proximate crises are most salient ...
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 ...

Time domains: Any activity lasting more than 3 minutes in duration.. Efficiency: This system produces energy much more slowly than the others. The good news is it can utilize an unlimited fuel supply of fat.. By products: The aerobic system only produces water and carbon dioxide when generating ATP.. Examples of activity: This energy system is your predominant fuel source for jogging, cycling, swimming long distances, and most of your daily activities.. What training looks like: Athletes who have become efficient at using fat as a fuel source are able to convert the energy from fat more quickly, allowing them to sustain higher levels of work capacity for activities with long durations. These athletes are usually easy to spot as they have exceptional muscle definition and extremely low body fat.. As you can see from the graph, our average work capacity is dictated by the length of time we are performing an activity.By training in all three energy systems we can become more efficient in all areas, ...

They are both correct, however, the way they are stated is the source of confusion.. 1) There is no correlation between the number of fibers and the energy system used. There is actually an exogenous explanation. The increased recruitment of muscle fibers occurs due to an increase in tension of the muscle. I.e. the force production is increased. When you are performing an explosive exercise, or moving a heavy weight, you need a high fiber recruitment. But what happens is that the fast twitch fibers are more selectively recruited, and they use the ATP-PC system.. Both fast twitch and slow twitch muscle fibers utilize all of the energy systems; the difference is that the fast twitch fibers get more of their energy from the ATP-PC system than from oxidation or glycolysis for example. And vice versa for the slow twitch.. 2) Yes, both types of hypertrophy occur in both fiber types. But again there is a correlation between fiber type and type of hypertrophy. When exercising with high weights and low ...

This holistic approach enables to take into account sectors and systems interconnections in new ways. Doing so reveals significant results: for a future low-carbon EU energy system it is essential that energy efficiency measures on the supply side, like district energy, are considered with equal importance for decarbonisation as measures on the demand side, like heat savings. They are fundamental to the technical and economic viability of the Smart Energy System.District energy ...
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 ...

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 ...
