BE Royaume-Uni - Le stockage d'énergie : les derniers développements au Royaume-Uni

BE Royaume-Uni - Le stockage d'énergie : les derniers développements au Royaume-Uni | @3di4com_EN | Scoop.it
Le stockage d'énergie est l'une des solutions bas carbone envisageables pour résoudre le problème de la production intermittente d'énergie renouvelable. A l'instar de la France, le Royaume-Uni avait identifié le stockage d'énergie comme étant l'une des technologies capables de stimuler la croissance économique du pays [1]. Malgré cette volonté affichée par le gouvernement britannique, il n'existe pas à l'heure actuelle une feuille de route définie pour le développement de cette technologie, ni un schéma fiscal d'incitation à son déploiement. Néanmoins, des avancées se font petit à petit dans le domaine.

Same Energy, More Power: Accelerating Energy Efficiency in Asia

Same Energy, More Power: Accelerating Energy Efficiency in Asia | @3di4com_EN | Scoop.it

Energy efficiency refers to approaches or strategies that yield more service value from each primary energy consumed.

 

Making homes, vehicles, and businesses more energy efficient is seen as a largely untapped solution to addressing the problems of pollution, global warming, energy security, and fossil fuel depletion.

Dawn Mullen's curator insight, July 17, 2013 5:17 PM

In areas of dense population, we should concentrate our efforts toward green and energy efficiency. Any improvement in energy efficiency would be compounded by the number of people this would be available to. That woould increase the cost effictiveness and impact on the planet quickly.

BMW Offers Fast Battery Chargers to Encourage i3’s Sales

BMW Offers Fast Battery Chargers to Encourage i3’s Sales | @3di4com_EN | Scoop.it

Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW), the world’s biggest maker of luxury vehicles, is offering drivers of the i3 city car speedier and smaller auto-battery chargers in an effort to make driving electric vehicles more practical.

The units, developed in collaboration with component supplier Robert Bosch GmbH, can bring the battery up to 80 percent of power capacity in 30 minutes, Munich-based BMW said today in astatement. U.S. owners of the i3 can buy the charger, about half the size of a standard refrigerator, for $6,548. Customers in California will have the additional option of loading up their batteries using fast charging at no cost at NRG Energy Inc. (NRG)’s eVgo charging stations through 2015.

INFOGRAPHIC: How it Works, the Solar Decathlon Microgrid

INFOGRAPHIC: How it Works, the Solar Decathlon Microgrid | @3di4com_EN | Scoop.it

The Solar Decathlon is an award-winning program that challenges 20 collegiate teams from around the world to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. 

The houses are built over a two year period on campuses across the world, and are then shipped to Irvine, California- the competition itself consists of 10 contests, one being on Energy Balance, measuring the net energy each house produces and consumes.

One of the most important aspect to this concept is the micro-grid solution — the connection between the houses and the local utility to provide excess solar energy to the grid.  Each team’s house is equipped with a bidirectional utility meter that enables power flow to and from the electrical utility and a net metering system to record energy consumption and PV energy production.

Here's how it works...

ZigBee IP: Smart Grid, Meet the Internet of Things | GreenTech Advocates

ZigBee IP: Smart Grid, Meet the Internet of Things | GreenTech Advocates | @3di4com_EN | Scoop.it

 

There has been a lot of hype about the Internet of Things, but how important is it to energy efficiency? The new ZigBee IP standard for wireless RF mesh networking gives us a glimpse at how the smart grid and the Internet of Things can come together to enhance energy efficiency.

 

ZigBee IP is the first standard-based IPv6 specification for wireless sensor networks. And if you’ve done your homework you know that IPv6, or a new and improved Internet, provides a zillion IP addresses and enables the so-called Internet of Things and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications.

 

ZigBee IP was specifically designed to operate on low-cost, low-power devices and support the requirements of ZigBee Smart Energy version 2, which ups the ante on Smart Energy Protocol (SEP) 1.0 and 1.1 standards by enabling local area network connectivity and control of electric vehicle (EV) charging. By using IP, it can work with Wi-Fi and HomePlug, which offers a Green Phy protocol adopted by some car companies for EV charging communications.

 

SEP 2 was selected by the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as a standard profile for smart energy management in home devices. It is an application on the ZigBee IP stack, which is based on standard Internet protocols such as 6LoWPAN, PANA, RPL, TCP, TLS and UDP, with TLS1.2 and AES-128-CCM for security.

 

ZigBee says about 40 million homes now have devices connecting to smart meters using ZigBee Smart Energy Protocol. One can imagine millions more smart meters and other devices such as in-home displays, thermostats, smart appliances and solar inverters being rolled out with SEP 2, as well as existing SEP 1.x smart meters being upgraded to SEP 2 (if that’s really possible). SEP 2 has been viewed as a solution for multiple dwelling units (MDUs).
