In a very short time America has realized that global warming poses real challenges to the nation's future. The Agile City engages the fundamental question: what to do about it? Journalist and urban analyst James S. Russell argues that we'll more quickly slow global warming - and blunt its effects - by retrofitting cities, suburbs, and towns. The Agile City shows that change undertaken at the building and community level can reach carbon-reduction goals rapidly. Adapting buildings (39 percent of greenhouse-gas emission) and communities (slashing the 33 percent of transportation related emissions) offers numerous other benefits that tax gimmicks and massive alternative-energy investments can't match. Rapidly improving building techniques can readily cut carbon emissions by half, and some can get to zero. These cuts can be affordably achieved in the windshield-shattering heat of the desert and the bone-chilling cold of the north. Intelligently designing our towns could reduce marathon commutes and child chauffeuring to a few miles or eliminate it entirely. Agility, Russell argues, also means learning to adapt to the effects of climate change, which means redesigning the obsolete ways real-estate is financed; housing subsidies are distributed; transportation is provided; and water is obtained, distributed and disposed of. These engines of growth have become increasingly more dysfunctional both economically and environmentally. The Agile City highlights tactics that create multiplier effects, which means that ecologically driven change can shore-up economic opportunity, can make more productive workplaces, and can help revive neglected communities. Being able to look at multiple effects and multiple benefits of political choices and private investments is essential to assuring wealth and well-being in the future. Green, Russell writes, grows the future. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brandon Massey. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/014257/bk_adbl_014257_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

An electric car is often referred to as an electric vehicle or EV. In Select Your Electric Car, I explore the various options of EVs available in the United States. If you live in California or in one of the other states which have similar zero emission vehicle standards, you will have more choices. These states have laws that car companies selling cars in their state must provide a certain percentage of EVs. I am going to focus on the EVs which are widely available in the US now (2018). I’ll compare them, so that hopefully you will be able to purchase the EV which fits your lifestyle - or the lifestyle which you plan to adopt once you own an EV. I’ll also look at a few other EVs which are not as widely available.In 2019, car dealers will be offering more models of EVs nationally, at least that’s the plan. I’m thinking that you might want a car with more of a track record. So I won’t be saying as much about those models, though I will mention them.The US ranks seventh in number of EVs sold, following China, United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Netherlands, and Norway who is at number one. If you wanted to wait until 2019 to drive your EV, and you had 200,000 dollars to spare, and you had a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or could hire a driver who did; why not just purchase a Tesla Electric Semi. After all, Elon Musk is now saying it will have a 600-mile range. Even if he’s only 75 percent correct, that’s still a 450-mile range. I could drive into town (Olympia) every day of the week and up to the big city (Seattle) on the weekend. And I still wouldn’t have to charge my rig. And in Aug 2018, a Tesla Semi made it from Coast to Coast across the US. It did have to be recharged. But the driver was able to find charging stations which were powerful enough to charge it. But where would I park the thing? Besides I don’t have a CDL. And the few people I know who do aren’t interested in being my personal chauffeur. I also definitely don’t have 200,000 do 1.

The important motivations for exploring alternative fuel resources are energy security and air pollution, problems that are collectively calling into question the fundamental sustainability of the current energy system.Hydrogen-fuelled engines with near-zero emissions are a potential near-term option and a bridge to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.With emission legislations getting more stringent,research studies have definitely established the advantages of extremely clean burning characteristics of hydrogen as a dual fuel in engines.But that said,the premium of using hydrogen as a green energy carrier needs to be augmented with studies on its potential to satisfy conventional engine combustion characteristics for ready deployment.In this present study, the performance and combustion analysis were carried out on an existing direct injection diesel engine at various load steppings using hydrogen inducted at different injection timings and injection durations.The findings of the study cater to its audience interested to employ such uses in practical diesel engines and also to those chartering a course of pursuance in the context of reducing emission from existing combustion engines.

_ Weltweit nehmen die Anforderungen der Gesetzgeber an die Automobilindustrie hinsichtlich der Reduktion von CO 2 -Flottenemissionen und der Markteinführung alternativer Fahrzeugantriebe zu. Jörg Wansart entwickelt ein Simulationswerkzeug für die Analyse von Strategien der Automobilindustrie zur Einhaltung der gesetzlichen Anforderungen bezüglich Greenhouse Gases (GHG) und Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) in Kalifornien. Das Potential des entwickelten Werkzeugs wird im Rahmen eines umfangreichen Fallbeispiels für den kalifornischen Markt aufgezeigt.
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle is a vehicle that has zero evaporative emissions from its fuel system, has a 15 year (or at least 150,000 mile) warranty and meets SULEV tailpipe emission standards.PZEVs have their own administrative category within the state of California for low emission vehicles.This vehicle category was created as part of a bargain with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), so that the automobile manufacturers could postpone producing mandated zero emission vehicles (ZEVs), which will require the production of electric vehicles or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
Part I: The problem of Bose-Einstein condensation of an ideal gas is dealt with to determine the condensate statistics. A brief description of the inter-relations between various ensembles of statistical mechanics is given. Thereafter, various canonical ensemble methods applied to the trapped ideal Bose gas are discussed in great detail. Further, strategies to convert the canonical ensemble results into the microcanonical ensemble description are also discussed. Part II: Various topics bound by a common theme based on the principle of atomic coherence are studied in the second part. First a scheme exploiting interference of incoherent pump processes to achieve strong control over the total spontaneous emission from a three-level atom is discussed. Thereafter various schemes to achieve radiative cooling without the presence of spontaneous emission on the cooling transition are considered. This allows cooling to an internal absolute zero of temperature in an atomic system in very small number of steps. In the last chapter a transient regime for gain without inversion is considered in a three level lambda system that may be easier to implement.
Hydrogen is believed to be the energy source of the future, enabling zero-emission and efficient production of power. This comprehensive publication presents a broad spectrum of various chemical aspects of hydrogen storage. The authors also address global climate change issues, carbon dioxide sequestration problems and CO2-based hydrogen storage.
This book provides an up-to-date review of the status and prospects of different options in energy conversion and storage technologies, as seen by a panel of world leading experts. It offers a platform for readers engaged in planning and undertaking new energy solutions or retrofitting and redesigning the existing installations to confront and to compare the pros and cons of various novel technology options. Contributing articles cover new clean and zero-emission coal technologies, solar, wind, nuclear, fuel cells, hydrogen and hybrid technologies, accompanied by treatises on the challenge of increasing global energy needs and consumption, issues of sustainability, and on specific ideas for efficient production and use of energy based on modern rationing technologies. The volume also offers views of feasibility of the implementation of advanced technologies especially in countries other than the few most developed industrial nations and highly populous countries, which all may have different priorities. Further, it brings together several regional surveys of needs, resources and priorities, as well as specific initiatives towards meeting future energy objectives, pursued in several countries in South-Eastern Europe. The book targets engineers and planners in the energy sector, employees in energy utility companies, and various levels of governmental organizations and offices. It is also meant to serve as a graduate-level textbook to meet the growing demand for new courses in alternative, renewable and sustainable energy technologies at technical and general universities.
1990 kündigte der Staat Kalifornien an, ab 1998 den etablierten Automobilherstellern bestimmte Quoten für Zero-Emission Vehicles vorzuschreiben. Zwar bewirkte die damalige Ankündigung einen weltweiten Entwicklungsschub auf dem Gebiet der Elektroautomobile. Dennoch führt diese Antriebsart weiterhin ein Schattendasein. Ausgehend von einem leitbild- und systemtheoretisch-orientierten Ansatz zeichnet Dietmar Abt die Entwicklungsgeschichte des Elektroautomobils von seinen Anfängen bis zur Gegenwart nach und versucht Antworten auf die Frage zu finden, warum sich diese Antriebsart bis heute nicht durchsetzen konnte. Die Analyse der ersten Entwicklungsphase in den USA und in Deutschland von 1886-1912 zeigt, daß einige heute allgemein anerkannte Aussagen zur Geschichte des Elektroautomobils inhaltlich unzutreffend sind. Die Analyse der Markteinführungsversuche in den USA und in Deutschland seit Mitte der 60er Jahre offenbart, daß alle diese Versuche zum Teil schwerwiegende Widersprüche zwischen Zielen, Strategien und Maßnahmen aufweisen. Im abschließenden Teil wird daher auf der Grundlage der historischen Untersuchung ein neuartiges alternatives Strategiekonzept zur Markteinführung von Elektroautomobilen vorgestellt.
