Smart Grid Middleware Optimizes Energy Consumption

Semantic Middleware Architecture (SMArc) is the result of a research conducted by the Department of Engineering and Telematics Architectures of Centro de Investigación en Tecnologías del Software y Sistemas Multimedia (CITSEM) of the Technical University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, UPM). »

The Sun is a natural fusion reactor.

MIT Undergraduate Working to Reduce Energy Waste in Fusion Reactors

MIT student Jake Jurewicz will be developing new simulation software for fusion reactors. Its purpose is to help engineers better understand where energy losses occur and, ultimately, to try and prevent them. If successful, this could open a way for a reactor to put out more energy that it consumes, therefore making fusion a viable alternative energy source. »
