Energy retention

Energy retention

The amount of energy that can be retained, rather than dissipated, depends on several architectural factors. These include the size, shape, style, orientation, and construction of the building, as well as the insulation, heating/cooling, and envelope systems within the building. Nonarchitectural factors include the location, local climate, and users’ preferences.

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has successfully designed a novel organic material of superior electrical conductivity and energy retention capability for use in battery applications.
The bullet's profile is streamlined for flat trajectory and energy retention.
Growth and feed efficiency were monitored in terms of the final weight, weight gain (expressed as the percent of initial body weight at the end of the experiment), specific growth rate (SGR) (ln final body weight - ln initial body weight/time, expressed as % per day), feed conversion ratio (FCR) (feed fed / wet weight gain), protein efficiency ratio (PER) (wet weight gain/protein intake), protein retention efficiency [(final whole body protein - final body weight) - (initial whole body protein - initial body weight) / total protein intake] and energy retention efficiency [(final whole body energy - final body weight) - (initial whole body energy - initial body weight)/total energy intake].
The Windows, Doors & Facades exhibition will showcase a wide range of products for optimising energy retention and management, which vary from embedding the use of plants into the design of buildings, using minimal sliding doors, automated layered glazed panels as well as digital, interactive facades, already popular in major cities around the world.

Apparent protein and energy retention rates were calculated according to the following formula: protein/energy retention rate (%) = [(final biomass x final body protein/energy) (initial biomass x initial body protein/energy)]/total protein/energy intake.
The stand out feature of the new version of the popular SUV is the brake regeneration system which ensures kinetic energy retention during braking or deceleration in turn stored in the battery, which is used later for all electrical operations in the car and helps in reduced fuel consumption in the car.
In a fasting animal, loss of body weight (BW) represents a loss of energy equivalent to fasting heat production (FHP) from the body, while a gain in BW represents energy retention (Blaxter and Boyne, 1978).
Fish that have higher energy retention are using the feed more efficiently.
Yet despite all of the advances in flashing, insulation, sill sealing, and other aspects of building science during the past 40 years, the envelopes of most conventionally built homes have come nowhere near their potential for energy retention.
The basic SST bullet has a sharply pointed red plastic tip rather than exposed lead, and it possesses a superb shape for excellent velocity and energy retention down range.
