    Anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and the resulting influence on global climate change have motivated nations throughout the world to reconsider how we obtain, move, and utilize energy. Use of the Sankey diagrams produced annually by Lawrence Livermore National Labs (see https://flowcharts.llnl.gov) indicates that in 2011, energy harvested in the United States was converted to electricity (40%), used for transportation (28%), or used for heating and industrial processes (32%). Similarly, in 2010, energy-related CO2 emissions were due to electric conversion (40%), transportation (33%), and heating and industrial processes (27%). (Including non-CO2 greenhouse-gas emissions does not significantly change these percentages.) Because energy-related CO2 emissions come from the combustion of fossil fuels (coal, petroleum, and natural gas), there has been much emphasis on reducing reliance on these fuels or shifting some use of coal or petroleum to the use of cleaner-burning natural gas, along with reducing energy consumption via efficiency improvements and conservation.

  • A More Perfect Union: Energy Systems Integration Studies from Europe

    The main aims of the energy policy of the European Union (EU) are 1) to establish a European energy system that is sustainable (particularly with respect to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions) and enhances Europe's competitiveness and 2) to improve the security of energy supplies to Europe's 500 million inhabitants. A key element of Europe's strategies to achieve these aims is to establish a more integrated energy system in which there is a well-connected and competitive market, particularly for gas and electricity. A pan-European energy infrastructure (analogous to those in place in other sectors of long-term public interest, such as telecommunications and transport) is seen as an essential enabler.

  • Energy Comes Together in Denmark: The Key to a Future Fossil-Free Danish Power System

    The transition of the Danish energy system to a system based only on renewable energy in 2050 carries many challenges. For Denmark to become independent of fossil energy sources, wind power and biomass are expected to become the main sources of energy. Onshore and offshore wind farms are expected to provide the majority of electricity, and biomass and electricity are expected to become the major sources of heating. On the way toward the 100% renewable goal in 2050, the Danish government has proposed a 2035 midterm goal to cover the energy consumption for power and heat with renewables. View full abstract»

  • Balance of Power: Toward a More Environmentally Friendly, Efficient, and Effective Integration of Energy Systems in China

    To fulfill the Chinese government's targets for energy conservation and emission reductions, significant efforts to increase efficiency and reduce emissions in the energy system have been made by developing combined heat and power plants, expanding transmission, and incorporating renewables. These elements are not always compatible with each other, however. Renewables in particular face difficulties being integrated into the energy system, and a significant portion of this generation is often curtailed, in particular generation from wind. This article describes the work currently being done in China to move toward better energy system integration, including certain institutional and regulatory changes, continental-scale grid connection, microgrids, and storage. Further opportunities for flexible interaction between electricity and heat along with carbon capture and storage and the potential for increased gas supply from shale resources are also discussed.

  • All Options on the Table: Energy Systems Integration on the Island of Maui

    Publication Year: 2013 , Page(s): 65 - 74

    Energy systems integration in the Hawaiian island of Maui is unique because of the island's high renewable energy (RE) penetration, advanced adoption of plug-in vehicles, distributed power generation, and isolated island electrical system. Currently, a large amount of wind power produced on Maui is curtailed because the power cannot be accommodated by the existing power grid. Analysis of changes in electrical grid operations to reduce wind and anticipated solar curtailment and look at energy pathways across the electrical and transportation sectors has resulted in a more comprehensive understanding of energy use on the island.

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (3187 KB)  

    The energy systems in our buildings and building districts form a tight network of several energy sources, such as renewables and fossil fuels, and energy flows, such as electricity and heat. Over the years, the integration and interaction of these sources and flows have become more and more interwoven. View full abstract»

  • The Rotary Era, Part 1: Early ac-to-dc Power Conversion [History]

    During the early 20TH Century, machines known as synchronous converters, or rotary converters, were mainly responsible for the successful transition from early Edison direct current (dc) power distribution to alternating current (ac) distribution. Rotary converters were the most efficient means of converting ac power into dc power so as to be able to continue supplying established dc motor loads. View full abstract»
