Research Opportunities

DC means direct current, AC means alternating current. AC changes direction 50 times a second. Both have been around for a long time and DC is used in batteries but originally DC meant a drop in power as you got further up the wire away from the source which was a serious practical limitation. Then along came Nikola Tesla who was the father of AC motors and generators and who invented the first AC motor and transformer which was then licensed to Westinghouse. With AC at any voltage, it can be transformed through use of the highly efficient transformer to any other voltage.

ANRE (National Regulatory Autority for Energy) has requests for 31.000 MW installed power. That is over ten times more than the network can support. In this capacity, more than 5,300 MW have the technical connection to the network and other 4336 MW are in a more advanced stage, with attachment contracts. On the other hand, projects finished lifting, holding and permits for wind founding, is 1141.5 MW totals. Official statement by the European Bank for investment: "The big problem that we get projects to finance in Romania is related to

Buildings have major environmental impacts over their entire life cycle. Resources such as ground cover, forests, water, and energy are depleted to construct and operate buildings. Resource-intensive materials provide the building envelope and landscaping adds beauty to it – in turn using up water and pesticides to maintain it. Energy-consuming systems for lighting, space conditioning and water heating provide comfort to its occupants.
