(ThermoEnergy Integrated Power System). TIPS eliminates emissions of nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, mercury and particulates
from power plants that run on coal, oil, natural gas or biomass.
TIPS also captures and recovers carbon dioxide in pressurized liquid form for sequestration or beneficial use.
Joining ThermoEnergy on this project will be CANMET, the
Canadian energy laboratory, and Reaction Systems Engineering of
Kent, U.K. The project is the second of three separate U.S. government grants, authorized by Congress in 2005, to get under way. A
third grant, totaling $1.5 million, will focus on development of TIPS
as a cost-effective upgrade for existing coal-fired power plants
designed to convert them to zero-air-emission facilities. That project
will begin in the near future.
London Climate Change Agency Partners
With EDF Energy
London Mayor Ken Livingstone announced in March that the
London Climate Change Agency will be setting up a joint company
with EDF Energy, a member of the Combined Heat and Power
Association (CHPA), to develop sustainable energy projects in
Welcoming the announcement, CHPA Director Phil Piddington
noted, “As a key form of decentralized generation, CHP has a
powerful role in efficiently providing the energy needs of homes
and businesses in London, whilst also helping reduce carbon dioxide emissions.” A recent study commissioned by the Greater
London Authority found that around a fifth of all London homes
could be connected to CHP through community heating networks.
Tabreed, Hamid Group Sign Deal
Tabreed, the United Arab Emirates-based district cooling company, has signed an agreement with the Al Hamid Group of Abu
Dhabi to provide cooling services for its Al Noor Private Hospital.
The four-story state-of-the-art hospital, scheduled for completion
later this year, is Tabreed’s third healthcare sector project in Abu
Dhabi, after Zayed Military City Hospital and Al Khaleej Hospital in
Al Ain. The Al Noor Private Hospital represents the Al Hamid
Group’s first foray into the healthcare sector.
“Save Energy Now” Identifies $29 Million
As of March 7, 2006, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
had identified $29 million in energy-efficiency savings in U.S.
industrial and manufacturing facilities as part of its “Save Energy
Now” campaign. The total is based on results of the first 10 energy savings assessments (ESA) conducted by DOE experts at participating plants. The effort is an initiative of the DOE’s Industrial
Technologies Program designed to help American businesses, factories and manufacturers thrive during this time of diminished
energy supplies and rising energy costs.
