Intelligent heating and cooling for buildings

Henan Runheng  Energy Maganement Co., LTD have developed intelligent heating and cooling technology for building by recharging shallow geothermal energy in the same well. The company claims that their technology matches the amount of effluent to backwater and reaches adequate heat exchange between backwater and soil. This greatly improves the efficiency of the heat pump unit. In the full closed cycle, water remains unpolluted. Furthermore, the technology overcomes the defect of water heat pump recharging in multiple wells. It solves the problem of the heat source well blockage and declining water levels.

Intelligent Solar Tracking System Technology

Solar PV’s generation capacity relies on receiving solar radiation. Traditional photovoltaic generating plants install crystalline silicon panels in a fixed base so that the panels are at a constant angle relative to solar trajectory.

Intelligent solar tracking system technology innovated by Huangshan Runsol, uses an intelligent tracking remote control to rotate solar PV panels automatically with the movements of the sun. Thus, the solar panel’s generating capacity was enhanced by enabling its surface to receive much more solar radiation. This technology extensively applies to solar PVs installed in fish ponds, mountains, and roofs with a max slope of 20 degrees and temperature ranging -35℃ to 65℃. This effectively solves natural environmental problems, foundation settlements as well as other problems that may damage the system. Compared to common stationary supports, this tracking system could improve power generating capacity by 10% to 45%. It also has a 25-years operation life for photovoltaic power plants. This benefit is far greater than the initial construction and maintenance costs. Intelligent solar tracking system has passed the UL2703 and UL3703 standard test certifications in October 2016.

IoT for facility management

Yanzi and Pythagoras cooperate using IoT for facility management to optimize the usage of office space. By placing sensors they know the precise usage of all desks and meeting rooms, and once they have the full picture they can reorganise so that the use of the office space increases. Most office spaces are only utilized about 50% of the time. By measuring and optimizing this rate can be increased and thereby energy is saved for heating, cooling and lighting and in the long term less buildings will need to be constructed.

Liquid organic H₂ carriers for H₂ logistics

Liquid organic H₂ carriers for H₂ logistics

Hydrogen (H₂) is the energy vector of the future. Although it can be used in many industrial sectors, its current solutions for storage and transportation are hazardous and inefficient. Hydrogenious GmbH have developed an alternative technology for H₂ storage and transportation–liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) technology. H₂ is chemically bonded to a stable carrier liquid. Thus, H₂ loses its explosive character and can be stored and transported in the well-known and already existing oil infrastructures. Hydrogenious claims that LOHC is the key to a viable H₂ society.

Materials innovation

Scaling reduces the heat transfer efficiency and therefore increases the overall energy consumption of the heat exchanger. Scaling enhances cost and energy consumption from exchange, cleaning, or replacement. 

SiOx has developed a coating solution that creates a very smooth and dense barrier that prevents the mineral growth formation on the heat transfer surface. The company says that the coating is very thin and will not inflict on the heat transfer coefficient. It consists only of silicon and oxygen and is non-toxic. The result is a heat exchanger that can operate at elevated temperatures, for much longer times, that requires a minimum of maintenance.
