Tour the Country’s Energy Infrastructure Through A New Interactive Map

Tour the Country’s Energy Infrastructure Through A New Interactive Map | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

Examining the network of power plants, transmission wires, and pipelines gives new insights into the inner workings of the electrical grid.


Every time you switch on a light, charge your electronics or heat your home in the winter, you’re relying upon a tremendous network of energy infrastructure that literally stretches across the country: power plants, pipelines, transmission wires and storage facilities.

It can be hard to visualize all this infrastructure and understand how it makes abundant energy available throughout the country. To help see a bigger picture, a new map, just released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, combines a range of data (locations of power plants, electricity lines, natural gas pipelines, refineries, storage facilities and more) into an elegant, interactive interface that helps to piece how it all fits together. You can also zoom in on your own city to see the types of power plants generating electricity nearby.

The map also includes layers of real-time information on storm movement and risks, allowing energy analysts to better understand the potential impact of storms.

Beat the heat: EPA's infographic is a good place to start | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

There are a few things to like about this infographic put out by the EPA's Energy Star program.

For one thing, it has a whole section on climate change instead of the usual single-minded fixation on saving energy. While their five energy-saving tips are pretty basic, they are not trivial. Recommendation 3, "seal your heating and cooling ducts", is surprisingly important, given that many people have their air conditioning ducts running through their very hot attics and are wasting serious money by cooling it instead of the space below.

E-Hazards: Manifest Tragedy [Infographic] | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

As technology continues to progress and the lifespan of consumer electronics continues to shorten, there is a significant problem that society is left to ponder: e-waste. The steady influx of new technologies being adopted by more people presents the growing challenge of what to do with the old electronics.

When these electronics end up in landfills and are improperly recycled, they jeopardize the well-being of the individuals involved and of the environment around them. It would be naïve to think the problems caused by these obsolete electronics stop with the country producing the waste or that it is a contained problem.


This infographic explores the shrinking product cycles of electronic devices, the mounting challenge of hazardous e-waste, and how various governments, schools and professionals are becoming involved.

Inside Arcology, the City of the Future (Infographic)

Inside Arcology, the City of the Future (Infographic) | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

For over a century, writers and architects have imagined the cities of the future.

In the late 1960s, architect Paolo Soleri envisioned “arcology” - a word that combines “architecture” and “ecology," with a goal of building structures to house large populations in self-contained environments with a self-sustaining economy and agriculture.
 
“In the three-dimensional city, man defines a human ecology. In it he is a country dweller and metropolitan man in one. By it the inner and the outer are at ‘skin’ distance. He has made the city in his own image. Arcology: the city in the image of man.” (Paolo Soleri)

luiy's curator insight, July 8, 2013 7:42 AM
For over a century, writers and architects have imagined the cities of the future as giant structures that contain entire metropolises. To some, these buildings present the best means for cities to exist in harmony with nature, while others forsee grotesque monstrosities destructive to the human spirit. In the mid-20th century, engineer and futurist R. Buckminster Fuller imagined city-enclosing plastic domes and enormous housing projects resembling nuclear cooling towers. These ideas are impractical but they explore the limits of conventional architectural thinking.  Science fiction writers and artists often imagine future architecture that oppresses the human spirit. Megastructures such as the pyramid-like Tyrell Buildings of “Blade Runner” dominate a decrepit skyline. The decaying old city is simply covered with layers of newer, larger buildings in a process of “retrofitting.” Beginning in the late 1960s, architect Paolo Soleri envisioned a more humane approach. The word “arcology” is a combination of “architecture” and “ecology.” The goal is to build megastructures that would house a population of a million or more people, but in a self-contained environment with its own economy and agriculture. “In the three-dimensional city, man defines a human ecology. In it he is a country dweller and metropolitan man in one. By it the inner and the outer are at ‘skin’ distance. He has made the city in his own image. Arcology: the city in the image of man.” (Paolo Soleri) In 1996, a group of 75 Japanese corporations commissioned Soleri to design the one-kilometer-tall Hyper Bulding, a vertical city for 100,000 people. Existing in harmony with nature, the Hyper Building was designed to recycle waste, produce food in greenhouses, and use the sun’s light and heat for power and climate control.  The structure was designed for passive heating and cooling without the need for machinery. An economic recession put the brakes on the project and it was never built. Soleri’s arcology concept is being put to the test in the Arcosanti experimental community being built in Arizona. Construction began in 1970. When complete the town will house 5,000 people. Buildings are composed of locally produced concrete and are designed to capture sunlight and heat. To be built in the desert near Abu Dhabi, Masdar is a 2.3-square-mile (6 sq km) planned city of 40,000 residents. Buildings are designed to reduce reliance on artificial lighting and air conditioning, and the city will run entirely on solar power and renewable energy. Begun in 2006, the project is planned for completion around 2020-2025.

New York's Citi Bike scheme has been up and running for a couple of months now—which means there's a glut of data available to analyze. This interactive New Yorker viz shows how the bikes were used every 15 minutes between June 8th and July 8th.

It does look a little chaotic, but there are some interesting trends in there. You can make out stacks of commuters in the week—especially toward the Financial District—and longer slower journeys at the weekends. Most fun, though, as Verge points out, is the mass migration westward before the July 4th fireworks on the Hudson. What else can you see?

Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces

Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

As self-driving cars move from fantasy to reality, what kind of effect will they have on cities?

A research and urban prototyping project called Shuffle City investigates, and in the process, becomes a manifesto for a new kind of modern city--one that depends less on traditional public transportation like buses or light rail and more on creating a fleet of continuously moving automated vehicles to serve urban mobility needs.

Shuffle City looks at the new possibilities that could arise from cities transitioning to cars without drivers. If cars were put into some constant flow as a public good, and if people didn’t all have their own vehicles, there would be no need for the concrete wastelands and lifeless towers that serve as a parking infrastructure in the urban landscapes of car-centric cities like Phoenix and Los Angeles (Under the current ownership model, the average car spends 21 hours per day parked.)

The share of city space ruled by parking lots will shrink, making way for more green space, environmental buffers, workspace, housing, retail, and denser planning for more walkable cities...

From Farm to Fork: Our Toxic Food System - infographic | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

Food is the fuel we use to get our bodies into motion. 

However, with the way our current food system works, processed foods such as chips, soda, french fries, hamburgers and candy are making up a significant portion of our daily food intake. They’re readily available at every food store, and an ice cold Coca-Cola is very difficult to pass up in favor of sparkling water. The problem, though, is that it’s not even about choosing healthy options. Today, 80% of food in the U.S. is supplied by massive factory farms associated with a myriad of environmental and health risks.


Do you know where your food comes from? Or what’s in it? How is a hotdog made? Today’s conventional food system depends heavily on the use of toxic chemicals and synthetic inputs that pose threats to our health — especially children’s.

For the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the numbers don’t lie – and they don’t fail to impress, either. In one of the U.S.’s sunniest regions, the sky is the limit for this solar power project.


The Ivanpah project, comprised of three separate plants to be built in phases, has begun construction on federal land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The project received a $1.6 billion loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Electricity from Ivanpah will be sold under multiple power-purchase agreements, each of 25-30 years duration with Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas and Electric Company. The electricity generated by all three plants is enough to support a yearly average of 140,000 homes, and more than twice that number when operating at maximum capacity during the peak hours of the day.

Ivanpah is the first large-scale solar thermal plant to be built in California in 20 years, supporting California’s goal of 33 percent renewable power generation by 2020.

The first time Andy Woodruff and Tim Wallace created a map of Boston’s bus routes was back in the fall of 2011. Using data from the MBTA, the duo (who write over at Boston-centric blog, Bostonography, charted the paths and speeds of buses over the course of 24 hours.

In the years since they first published the MBTA Bus Speeds, the team has learned better ways to automate mapping. Now, with a bit of coding they can sit back and watch the maps draw themselves. Woodruff and Wallace pull in data from NextBus every hour, and that information is stored in a database. “Image rendering is done by some pretty simple PHP scripts that grab the data, string the points together into lines based on vehicle ID, calculate distances and speeds, then draw thousands of lines.”
