A Potentially Perfect Energy Source

There is a “perfectly green” energy source that is essentially inexhaustible (billions of times as much as all the oil and natural gas and nuclear that we might ever find or try to use)! It would cause ZERO global warming, ZERO pollution, and not use up any natural resources. It is called the Kinetic Energy of rotation of the Earth. The amount of rotational energy that the Earth has is astounding! We will see below the math that proves the published value of that energy is 2.137 * 1029 Joules or watt-seconds.

Monitoring motors for energy savings

Your motors can help you find substantial energy savings, if you can hear what they’re trying to tell you. The right monitoring equipment will help you get the message.

With limited natural resources and the ever-increasing global demand for energy, it only stands to reason that energy costs will continue to increase. As energy costs rise around the world, the incentives for facilities to operate their equipment more efficiently will compound over time.

Should Natural Gas Vehicles be considered as part of the portfolio of transportation solutions?

Natural Gas Vehicle Emissions Compared with vehicles fueled with conventional diesel and gasoline, natural gas vehicles can produce significantly lower amounts of harmful emissions such as nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, and toxic and carcinogenic pollutants as well as the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. Light-Duty Vehicle Emissions: CNG vs. Gasoline Testing has been performed to compare the emissions of light-duty CNG vehicles versus light-duty gasoline vehicles.
