This study investigates the potential benefits and feasibility of household direct current (DC) networks. Unlike the case of alternating current (AC) systems, a well-established set of standards for household DC networks is currently lacking. However, several recommended standards and configurations have been discussed in previous studies. This work reviews some of the most promising suggestions and further analyses those that are most suitable to be implemented.
This guide, released by the Department of Energy & Climate Change, gives an overview of the steps businesses can take to maximise the impact of their Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) assessment. It is intended to help organisations make the most of energy efficiency opportunities identified through the ESOS or another energy audit. This guide is particularly intended for smaller ESOS participants, including those who may have less experience in implementing energy savings and/or may not employ a dedicated energy manager.
The project targets the financing of energy efficiency and small renewable energy investments in existing hotels and, to a lesser extent, in other buildings for tourist accommodation, located in Spain. The investments involve a variety of measures such as improvements to the building envelope, heating and cooling systems, energy-efficient lighting, energy-management systems, solar heaters, etc.
