Energy Solutions: A New Energy System Design Approach [video]
MetadataShow full item record
When looking back at energy systems it appears that there was no guiding principle behind the design or technology choice that was required. We realized that the design was highly influenced by legacy systems, mainly centralized, that grew organically over the last century or so. A new energy system design approach is proposed, one that looks at the end service or product that is desired. We use this approach to motivate the choice of architecture and design. We will present an overview of the driving philosophy behind our approach and then some of the technologies that we are investigating. We describe this new approach, and then present some of the systems that have been designed using the approach to solve certain energy problems. We start with facilities cooling and heating, allowing the method to be exploited. We then present the more challenging scenarios of remote outposts or forward operating bases, which have been assessed for certain high energy use, and offer solutions which would reduce the supply chain needs.
