17 Oct Nuclear Lessons Learned Guidance on Best Practice: Welding

Royal Academy of Engineering (UK) (RAEng)
2012
Engineering the Future, following a request from the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Office for Nuclear Development, set up a steering group to examine the lessons that could be learned from recent civil nuclear power plant construction projects.  The project steering group was formed by representatives from relevant engineering institutions and bodies and considered both the lessons that could be learned and how they should be incorporated into the proposed UK new build programme. In October 2010 the project steering group delivered a report to Charles Hendry MP, Minister of State for Energy & Climate Change, on the construction lessons learned from six international nuclear new build projects.

17 Oct Heat island mitigation in urban environments through green surfaces integration in the building envelope / Diminuarea efectelor insulei de căldură în aglomerările urbane utilizând soluţii specifice clădirilor verzi

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
This paper supports the validity of green surface integration solutions by analyzing their effects on indoor climate, in comparison with conventional systems. The analysis is based on computer simulated models of the heat transfer phenomena under variable conditions, with respect to external climatic parameters influenced by the Heat Island effects.

17 Oct Automatic voltage regulation in medium voltage networks combined with renewable energy sources / Controlul tensiunii în reţelele de medie tensiune în care sunt conectate surse regenerabile de energie

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
The paper proposes a solution of UPQC (Unified Power Quality Conditioner) type to compensate the voltage variations and to provide an actually constant voltage at the terminals of the users with sensitive receivers. The experimental study performed for the developed installation emphasized good response characteristics both in normal and disturbed operating conditions.

17 Oct Urban climate certification – condition of mitigation the urban heat island on thermal comfort in buildings in summer

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
The paper presents the aim and objectives of modernizing the energy system of current buildings as well as of designing and executing new buildings with high Energy and Environmental Performance. It is necessary to refer to the European Strategy (Europe 2020) and to the European Directives, transposed into the national legislation, while the technical and economic solutions to the objectives resulting from the above mentioned purpose complete the dimension of the logical structure of this procedure for reaching the objectives.

17 Oct The future of electricity supply

Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW)
2012
Der Umstieg auf Erneuerbare Energien sowie der grosse Erneuerungs- und Ausbaubedarf bei der Produktion und Übertragung lassen einen grundlegenden Umbau des Elektrizitätssystems erwarten. Die Akademien der Wissenschaften Schweiz begrüssen, dass der Bund einen klaren Rahmen für die Energiepolitik der nächsten Jahre schaffen will. Sie unterstützen grundsätzlich die in der neuen Energiepolitik enthaltene Ausrichtung, Energie effizienter zu nutzen und die erneuerbare Stromproduktion auszubauen. Ein weiteres wichtiges Ziel ist die Integration der schweizerischen Stromversorgung in den europäischen Markt.
