PARIS--Saft, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of high-tech industrial batteries, has been awarded around 10 million dollar contract by Kentz, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group and global engineering specialist solutions provider, to supply its Sunica.plus batteries for critical solar powered systems serving Qatar Petroleum's Dukhan oilfield. Over the next two years, some 40,000 of the nickel-based Sunica.plus batteries will be deployed at around 775 wells across the oilfield, where they will provide energy storage and backup power for wellhead industrial control systems and corrosion protection systems. Kentz is currently working on a 190 million dollar contract for Qatar Petroleum [...]

According to a new report by Allied Market Research titled, "Global Second Generation Biofuels - Size, Industry Analysis, Trends, Opportunities, Growth and Forecast, 2013 - 2020", the global second generation biofuels (Advanced Biofuels) market would reach $23.9 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 49.4% during 2014 - 2020. Currently, Biodiesel garners the largest market share; however, the latest and the most commercially viable Cellulosic ethanol would surpass Biodiesel and eventually lead the market by 2020. North America generated largest revenue, as it has over 50% of the globally installed capacity base.

A collaborative effort linking the Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) with supercomputing resources at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory via the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is yielding exciting results in organic photovoltaics research that could transform the way researchers use these facilities and improve scientific productivity in the process. A series of organic photovoltaics experiments conducted at the ALS last September provided an opportunity to roadtest the “superfacility” concept, which seamlessly integrates multiple Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science user facilities to allow researchers to tap [...]
