    The energy system is a complex network of physical infrastructure and markets interacting closely with one another. Within this network, the gas and electricity systems have become the backbone of modern energy production. Both systems are closely interconnected due to the vast deployment of efficient combined-cycle gas turbines (CCGTs) over the first decade of the 2000s, mainly in Organization fo...

  • Harnessing Flexibility from Hot and Cold: Heat Storage and Hybrid Systems Can Play a Major Role

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2150 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    As has been often reported, electricity systems with high levels of variable wind and solar power generation would benefit from demand flexibility. What is not as often mentioned is that electrification of the transport and heat sectors could exacerbate the need for flexibility, if they are implemented as inflexible loads. This demand could also be made more flexible, but it comes with a cost. The... View full abstract»

    Energy and water have been integrated throughout most of modern history, and that linkage will continue into the future, not only in the physical infrastructure but also through digital infrastructure (e.g., the Internet of Things). The term energy-water nexus is quickly expanding to refer to more than simply water used for energy production and energy used for water treatment and transport. Just ... View full abstract»

    Electricity, natural gas, water, and dis trict heating/cooling systems are predominantly planned and operated independently. However, it is increasingly recognized that integrated optimization and control of such systems at multiple spatiotemporal scales can bring significant socioeconomic, operational efficiency, and environmental benefits. Accordingly, the concept of the multi-energy system is g... View full abstract»

    A transition to fossil-free energy systems is necessary to secure a safe, reliable, and sustainable future. This implies increasing shares of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, and introduces new challenges in terms of flexibility, storage, and energy transmission. Consumers play a crucial role in achieving this energy transition, as consumer flexibility is required to accommodate v... View full abstract»

    Following the formulation of certain strategic policy goals, such as reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs) and including more renewable sources (RES) as part of the energy mix in several parts of the world, the practical translation and actual implementation of these goals have led to the introduction of substantial volumes of intermittent renewable electric sources. Because affordable bulk storage for... View full abstract»

  • Reactors for the Roxy: Evolution of AC Stage Lighting [History]

    The introduction of ac services to the "theater districts" of large cities during the early 20th century allowed for the adoption of reactancetype dimmers to control incandescent stage lighting, in place of the hopelessly inefficient resistance dimmers (rheostats) that previously had to be used with dc services. Then, in a relatively short time, reactance dimmers were combined with vacuum tubes to... View full abstract»
