World Electrical Safety Barometer

Residential electrical installations can be made entirely safe, thereby reducing the risk of electrically induced fires and electrocution to an absolute minimum. Ensuring this level of safety requires best practices in design, installation and inspection. However, the majority of countries around the world are missing the right mix of standards, regulation and education to make this happen.

Transformer Replacement Decisions

Transformer replacement before failure can be motivated by several legitimate reasons. These include environmental and fire safety regulations, changes in the load or the voltage level, an increased risk of failure due to transformer ageing, or the aim to improve the energy efficiency. This last motivation is less common, unfortunately. Replacing a transformer with a new one with higher energy efficiency will in many cases lead to a lower Life Cycle Cost of the device.

The role of hydrogen in seasonal energy storage

As solar and wind energy replace fossil fuels for electricity generation and space heating, the need for seasonal energy storage will increase.  Seasonal storage options include pumped hydro, compressed air energy, thermal, hydrogen, and biomass.  I will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each and the role hydrogen can play in seasonal energy storage.
