Energy Efficiency Examples: Parallel session B1

Mr Jean-François Bouteille (ESRF)
The ESRF produces very intense Hard Xray beams for the scientific community and is preparing the renewal of equipment inside the storage ring. This has motivated us to carry out a careful analysis of the energy efficiency over the life time of this large instrument. Taking into account the initial design of 1986 when electrical energy was cheap, uncertain future conditions are the key...

Low-grade heat is available everywhere and sometimes in large quantities; consequently, the valorization of this heat seems to be attractive in terms of economics. We will discuss the issue first from a theoretical point of view; then some examples will be given, namely using waste heat from engines for intake air cooling, the Honigmann process for storing and conversion of low-grade heat,...

Large particle accelerator/collider facilities are probably the most power hungry fundamental research undertakings. It may prove to be a roadblock in the progress of this research at least in the public view. On the other hand, they can be used as a life-size workbench to develop new energy saving and generation technologies and to improve the reliability, maintainability and flexibility of...
