Office of Naval Research Expands Mission for Renewable Energy

WELCOME TO ALL HANDS UPDATE, I’M PETTY OFFICER IAN COTTER. THE OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH IS EXPANDING ITS QUEST FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY IN HAWAII. THE APPLIED RESEARCH LABORATORY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII IS USING NAVY FUNDING TO STUDY ALTERNATIVE ENERGY EFFORTS. IN 2013, THE DOD SPENT MORE THAN $14 BILLION ON FUEL FOR OPERATIONAL […]

Think, question, get inspired – Towards clean energy

The Earth can’t handle our current way of producing energy. At the University of Turku, we take part in extensive EU collaborations in which we plan technology projects to combine different research fields. The goal is to replace fossil-based fuel and chemical production with new, efficient, and clean methods that are based on storage solar […]

DIY Home Energy Monitor & CT sensors explained

Hi everyone! This is a bit of a special Simply Explained video with me talking about my DIY home energy monitor and how I built it. You see I was interested in measuring how much electricity our whole apartment was using and I wanted to collect that data over time. Now, of course, I could […]

Harnessing marine resources for renewable energy

My area of research is in marine renewable energy. I run a big research group here at the AMC, in this space probably one of the biggest groups in Australia and we’ve been looking at the way that we can generate electricity from waves and tides, but also from other offshore renewables as well such […]

Dartmouth Engineering Sustainability in Greenland

(upbeat music) – For many years I’ve worked on the center of the Greenland Ice Sheet at Summit Camp looking at the physics of snow and how the snow traps gases for ice core interpretation. Ice cores from Greenland are the way that we understand and we know that climate can change abruptly in less […]

These Giant Wind Turbines, Inspired by Palm Trees, May Be the Future of Renewable Energy

[MUSIC PLAYING] Renewable energy is very much the future of not just the national energy portfolio but the world energy portfolio. Turbines that are designed right now, they’re three blades, they face the wind. Very efficient, where we have an issue is if we want to build extreme scale wind turbines. As you get these […]

Prize Competition – Powering Electronic Equipment on a Rotating Shaft

[Sound Effect] Jason: Behind me you can see the rotating element from a 165-megawatt generating unit, but when it’s spinning at over 150 rpm and weighing over one million pounds the physical forces on it can be extreme. The better we can understand the vibrations and electrical forces that are on this unit the longer […]
