  • Electric car charging points are an investment in the future (7)
    Charging electric cars is currently not a viable service - stated the participants of the debate on "Elektromobilność i Energetyka", which took place during the XV Congress of the New Industry EXPO in Katowice. On the other hand, the opinions regarding the treatment of an electric car as a mobile energy store were diversified. the substantive partner of the debate was the Office of Technical Inspection.
  • Electromobility - charging station security (9)
    Electromobility is great. Such a thesis is guided by the majority of publications dedicated to electric cars and it is necessary to agree with their authors, because the arguments for its confirmation are actually a lot. The electric drive gives great dynamics especially at low speeds, and the acceleration at the level of 2-3 s to 100 km / h works on the imagination of drivers. The ecological nature of this branch of motorization, although sometimes contested, allows in practice at least for the exhaustion of air pollution from cities, and with the appropriate energy mix of the electricity generation system also for the improvement of air quality in general.
  • Acoustic emission test of hydroaccumulators in wind power plants (12)

  • Is there a new, post-carbon era ahead of us? (15)
    Exhausting fossil energy sources pose great challenges for us. On the one hand, the energy security of our country, whose main energy carrier is still coal, on the other - modern RES technologies (renewable energy sources), which are a challenge for engineers, technical services and in the social dimension. A new landscape, often unknown effects of RES impact on the environment or their energy efficiency - these are just a few issues that arouse emotions. With all responsibility, however, it is possible to put forward a thesis that a new era is ahead of us, full of interesting challenges.
  • Detection of gas leaks using unmanned aerial vehicles (19)
    The leakage of methane from infrastructure such as pipelines or storage tanks is of key importance for the environment and poses a threat to the safety of people and property. Currently, after a period of trouble-free operation, an increase in the number of incidents caused by leakages in transmission pipelines can be observed.
