Morris has just published a new paper: Carbohydrate Economy, Biofuels and the Net Energy
Debate (on-line at: www.newrules.org) which looks at the comparative data that underlies the ethanol debate.
What's important, then, is where net energy
trends are headed.
A combination of booming domestic production fulfilling a greater proportion of consumption and soaring exports from brand-new LNG export terminals and the lifting of the ban on crude oil exports in December 2015 puts the United States on a path to becoming a net energy
exporter for the first time since the 1950s.
Development of a new net energy
formula by CVB, using the database of INRA.
Today net energy
returns average between 15:1 and 17:1.
Animals were distributed in a randomized block design with a 5x3 factorial arrangement, comprising five levels of net energy
(2,300; 2,425; 2,550; 2,675; and 2,800Kcal [kg.sup.-1] of diet) and three levels of ractopamine (5, 10, and 20ppm [kg.sup.-1] of diet), with five replicates, and two animals per experimental unit.
imports, including all fuels, are expected to decline and then end by 2030, according to the Annual Energy Outlook 2015, a report by the U.S.
Meanwhile, burgeoning population growth in the Middle East, combined with higher living standards expectations, could see Saudi Arabia become a net energy
importer by 2030.
Department of Energy's goal of making zero net energy
GTI plans to expand its capabilities in the residential sector, including energy modeling, monitoring and verification, emerging technologies, standards development, and zero net energy
and sustainability program support, the company said.
She learned during her visit that a state-of-the-art, Zero Net Energy
, science and technology building was under construction at the heart of the Fall River Campus.
The Middle East will remain the largest net energy
exporter, but its share will fall from 46 per cent in 2013 to 36 per cent in 2035.
