Engineers Design Fluid Inspired Material Coating for Metals

Engineers have developed a new coating strategy for metal that self-heals within seconds when scratched, scraped or cracked. The novel material could prevent these tiny defects from turning into localized corrosion, which can cause major structures to fail. It's hard to believe that a tiny crack could take down a gigantic metal structure. But sometimes bridges collapse, pipelines rupture and fuselages detach from airplanes due to hard-to-detect corrosion in tiny cracks, scratches and dents.http://glewengineering.com/comparing-wind-load-calculation-methods/ Localized [...]

Engineers Forge a New Frontier for Solar: Utility Build-Transfer Agreements

Historically, electric utilities in the U.S. have been buyers and sellers, but not producers, of solar energy. Largely due to tax and accounting constraints, vertically integrated, regulated utilities traditionally have entered power purchase agreements (PPAs) to procure solar energy (and wind and other renewable energy) from independent power producers (IPPs), rather than building such projects and including them in their rate base. To many utilities, this has seemed like a lost opportunity; they generally earn a [...]

Net Zero: Home Energy Systems

Net Zero energy homes are just like any home except more appropriate in today's world.   Regular grid-tied homes that are so air-tight, well insulated, and energy-efficient that they produce as much renewable energy as they consume over a year. Occupants virtually receive no energy bill and a carbon-free home.  A Net Zero energy home combines advanced design and superior building systems with energy efficiency and on-site solar panels.   Homes are ultra-comfortable, healthy, quiet, sustainable that [...]
