Consequent upon this, the increase in gross energy throughput entrained by growth and development will gradually slow down as well (Salthe, 2002,b), impacting the ability to recover from injuries Thus, it looks as though when failing to contribute as much as they had been doing to the maximum entropy production project of the universe, organisms begin to fail.
The second will modernise and replace certain electricity distribution networks with the aim of reducing energy losses, which in Poland eat up almost 10% of gross energy production.
economy has the potential to yield gross energy savings worth more than $1.2 trillion by 2020 if it implements energy efficiency at scale, according to a report from the consulting firm McKinsey & Company.
Gross energy The total amount of energy in the feed or ration.
(In establishing this credit, the USDA ignores the fact that if enough ethanol were produced to actually displace significant amounts of gasoline, the supply of co-product would exceed the demand and thus energy would be required to dispose of the excess co-product.) The inclusion of this energy credit brings the gross energy output of ethanol to near 27.4 MJ/L.
