(Updated March 2014) Thorium is more abundant in nature than uranium.It is fertile rather than fissile, and can only be used as a fuel in conjunction with a fissile material such as recycled plutonium.Thorium fuels can breed fissile uranium-233 to be used in various kinds of nuclear reactors.Molten salt reactors are well suited to thorium fuel, as normal fuel fabrication is avoided.


The use of thorium as a new primary energy source has been a tantalizing prospect for many years. Frequently Asked Questions About My Carbon Footprint.

I try to Don't fall for it! Newsroom : Algae to capture CO2. Algae to capture CO2 [Date: 2013-03-20] Global warming's effects can be seen worldwide, and many experts believe it's only going to get worse as CO2 emissions continue to rise.

Newsroom : Algae to capture CO2

Global warming is caused by the emission of greenhouse gases. 72% of the totally emitted greenhouse gases is carbon dioxide (CO2), 18% Methane and 9% Nitrous oxide (NOx). Carbon dioxide emissions therefore are the most important cause of global warming. Ionmax ION390 Air Purifier - HEPA, UV, Negative Ions.

Watts volts and amps. One unit of your battery pack is a cell – it is only when you put several cells together that you have a battery – and each cell is nominally 1.2 volts (or 3.7 volts for LiPo).

Watts volts and amps

Our batteries are usually hooked up in series (positive to negative to positive etc.) which means that the voltage of the pack is 1.2 volts multiplied by the number of cells. e.g. 1.2 volts x 7 cells = 8.4 volts For LiPo 3S means 3.7 volts x 3 cells = 11.1 volts. Volts is a measure of the electromotive force or electrical pressure that you battery is capable of producing. The more volts you have (pressure) the more work you can do with it. To test this out, take a standard motor (say, a Speed 400) and attach a 7.2V battery to it and note the sound it makes.

Without a better assessment of you cooling load there is no reliable way to determine what size unit is needed.

HVAC systems have design loads based on he long term average of the local weather. When the weather hits the design limit the equipment will be on nearly 100% of the time. If the weather is outside the design load it cannot keep up. If the weather is inside the design load the equipment cycles on and off. Only larger commercial systems are designed to dehumidify AND cool, and have sensors for both. Residential AC users only temperature as the control parameter. There are 'split systems' (outside condenser and inside evaporator) that even have two compressors in them. You need to try and size the unit more closely to the loads, and then you have to put up with some cold and clammy when the weather is not as bad, or not maintaining the set point at the hottest times. Electricity pricing. Electricity pricing (sometimes referred to as electricity tariff or the price of electricity) varies widely from country to country, and may vary significantly from locality to locality within a particular country.

Electricity pricing

There are many reasons that account for these differences in price. The price of power generation depends largely on the type and market price of the fuel used, government subsidies, government and industry regulation, and even local weather patterns. Basis of electricity rates[edit] Electricity prices vary between countries and can even vary within a single region or distribution network of the same country. Energy Balance.

Budget Measures 2011-12 - Budget Paper No. 2 - Part 2: Expense Measures - Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Energy efficiency functions — additional funding The Government will provide $28.1 million over five years to the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency to assist in the delivery of its energy efficiency functions, which were transferred from the then Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts as part of the machinery of government changes in March 2010.

This funding includes delivery of the COAG National Strategy on Energy Efficiency and a range of energy efficiency programs. Green Loans program — extension and assistance for assessors The Government will provide $46.5 million over two years ($28.5 million in 2010‑11 and $18.0 million in 2011‑12) to manage the closure of the Green Loans program and provide assistance to home sustainability assessors. The cost of this measure will be met from a redirection of funding arising from the cessation of the Green Start program.
