Finally! A solution to office thermostat wars 15.10.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
In what could bring an end to the endless thermostat wars at office, scientists have developed a system that can automatically optimise the indoor conditions including air quality, temperature and lighting according to each worker's needs. No matter the season, thermostat wars rage in offices worldwide. Employees bicker over the temperature, complaining that it is either too hot or too cold. "Improving the quality of the office-building environment impacts the comfort of employees, which in turn influences their productivity," said Hashem Akbari, professor at Concordia University in Canada. The researchers simulated their method in an open-air office building with five zones and four occupants per zone. They tested different occupancy scenarios and outdoor weather conditions and took into consideration the employees' thermal tolerance. Using data analysis techniques, they modelled the preferences of each office worker. As a result, they could simulate worker-preferred indoor temperatures, ventilation ...

LEDs to replace streetlights in city 27.9.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Ahead of Diwali, the North Municipal Corporation Delhi announced on Tuesday that it will start replacing conventional streetlights with LEDs this September.  Of the 2.05 lakh lights in two zones of North MCD — Rohini and Narela — contract has been given for 1.15 lakh fixtures. Tenders for about 90 lakh lighting fixtures in the rest of the four zones — City, Civil Lines, Sadar-Paharganj, and Karol Bagh — have been received and scrutinised. The manufacturers were given special instructions regarding the design and durability of the products, which need to have a life span of a minimum 7 years. It took about 2.5 months to develop the high-efficiency LEDs, which meet all testing standards. The south and east civic bodies are also planning to replace conventional streetlights with LEDs soon.  North MCD Standing Committee Chairman Tilak Raj Kataria said: “The agency awarded with the job would ensure minimum 64.4 per cent energy saving. Of that, the agency would claim revenue made on account of 79 per cent or ...

New type of washable solar cell developed 20.9.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Scientists have developed a new type of water-proof solar cell which can provide electricity even after being soaked in water or stretched and compressed. The finding could open the way for wearable solar cells, which will provide power to devices such as health monitors incorporated into clothing, researchers said. These could include sensors that record heartbeats and body temperature, for example, providing early warning of medical problems, they said. Researchers, including those from the University of Tokyo in Japan, developed extremely thin and flexible organic photovoltaic cells, coated on both sides with stretchable and waterproof films, based on a material called PNTz4T. They deposited the device in an inverse architecture onto a one-micrometre-thick parylene film.  The ultra-thin device was then placed onto acrylic-based elastomer and the top side of the device was coated with an identical elastomer, giving it a coating on both sides to prevent water infiltration. The elastomer, while allowing ...

Waste toilet paper can be converted into electricity, explains study 17.9.2017 DNA: Evolutions
Waste toilet paper can be used to generate renewable electricity through a two-step process at a cost comparable to residential solar power installations, scientists say. If implemented, the process could tackle the problems of overflowing municipal landfills and dependency on fossil fuels.Waste toilet paper is not often considered an asset. Yet it is a rich source of carbon, containing 70-80 per cent of cellulose on a dry basis.
