In Australia high temperatures with low humidity and strong winds are dangerous conditions for bush fires. An Australien farmer captures biogas from his piggery and flares it to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from methane. The Lufft WS500-UMB weather station is used to monitor climate conditions.
Wind remains unchallenged in its top position among the types of renewable energies. The advantages are obvious: Compared to other “green energy sources,” wind power takes up relatively little space. Energy is produced without pollution and the investment costs pay off quickly. In addition, this fast-growing and highly innovative industry has undergone constant and tremendously rapid development.
… Lufft-products in practice! Our products have been established in the whole world. Even under extreme weather and environmental conditions our customers can trust in reliable readings from our Lufft measuring instruments.
… how the world’s largest economy could be a pioneer in renewable energy. Thinking of China nowadays, the first thing that comes to mind is a huge empire, followed by the picture of an economic power that has broken various records in recent years. Less known is the fact that China is also a world power in the area of renewable energy now.
China is a land of extremes, with over 1.3 billion people and a territory of more than 9.5 million square kilometres. The expansion of the transport network is vital for the ever-increasing economic growth of the country. Lufft’s compact weather stations WS400-UMB, WS500-UMB and WS600-UMB makes a viable contribution in this regard.
Wherever snowfall, low temperatures and high wind speed dictate the weather conditions, it is obvious that all technical equipment is working at the limits of their capability. At the same time, the extreme weather conditions are the main reason why frequent and precise measurement of weather data is so important. This was the challenge that Lufft faced when they installed their Ventus-UMB Ultrasonic Anemometer on Whistler Mountain.
