Solar heat for cities the sustainable solution for district heating

Infographic | December 19, 2019

SDH is a large field of solar thermal collectors supplying solar energy to the heat network of a neighbourhood, a village or a town. This field is supplemented by a heating centre, which provides additional energy to meet all the heating needs of connected residential, public or office buildings. The heat network can likewise be supplied with surplus energy of collectors installed on the roofs of those buildings.

Infographic: A New Global Wind Energy Atlas

Infographic | May 13, 2021

To maximize the return of investment, the design of a wind turbine is determined on the 50-year return period of sustained wind speed. Stable and consistent wind speed is one of the major determining factors when considering turbine design and wind turbine farm placement. Cornell researchers Sara C. Pryor, professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and Rebecca J. Barthelmie, professor in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, recently released a new global wind atlas—a digital compendium of sites around the world with extreme wind speeds.
