The primary role of heating systems in the production of renewable fuels

The complicated geopolitical conjuncture, linked to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, and the questioning of fossil fuels, whose role is far from sustainable in view of a green society, are pushing the production of renewable fuels. These fuels are produced from sources that are constantly regenerating and will not run out in the next future. They are made from a combination of different sources: vegetable oils, animal fat, other organic substances and

Regolatori di potenza REVO C per il settore dell'energia eolica

REVO C for wind energy management

Wind energy is more efficient and more widely used than solar energy and can be defined as the kinetic energy produced by the movement of air over the earth’s surface, between areas of high and low pressure. As current growth trends predict, this green energy should, by 2030, cover 20% of global electricity demand, resulting in a reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 3 billion tonnes per year. Power
