Assembly of a steam turbine produced by Siemens, Germany. Most electricity is produced by thermal power stations with turbines like this one. Electricity consumption and living standards are highly correlated. Electrification was voted the most important engineering achievement of the 20th century.

anotherdaycalling This shows the steel sheeting that has been pushed vertically into the ground each steel sheet being interlocked with the previous one to hold back the stone mix material which has been shown in previous postings to form the ramp for the new 1.5 metre higher bridge which is required for the Paddington to Bristol electrification; look closely and a 200 mm repair across the road can be seen, this had been dug to enable an exploratory view of what was under the road to make sure that there were no unexpected utility services ! #utilityServices #whitelines #GroveOxfordshire #StationRoadGrove #A338Grove #grove #Oxfordshire #NewBridge #Wantage #SteelSheeting #sheeting #interlocking #instagramaviation #electrification #networkRail #groundwork #oxfordshireCC #roadSurface #bamNuttall 2d

anotherdaycalling It's a busy picture, taken from the original road bridge on the A338 Station Road in Grove, Oxfordshire looking east towards Didcot; it shows a First Great Western Intercity train traveling west towards Swindon and to the right of the photo is the shuttering for the new bridge support and the steel framework inside the shuttering all prior to the premixed concrete that will all form part of the new higher bridge support to enable the Paddington to Bristol electrification ! #electrification #NewBridge #networkRail #BamNuttall #networkRail #FirstGreatWestern #intercity125 #railway #GWR #GreatWesternRailway #publicTransport #GroveA338 #GroveOxfordshire #StationRoadGrove #A338Grove #publicTransport 3d

martynsparkes Arrrggghhhh! They weren't there when I went to bed last night (and it was dark at 5am when I left this morning)! I guess the electrification fairies ( #EGIPtians ?) must have put them there! Either that or someone wants a game of rugby and they forgot their crossbar! #polmont #EGIP #NETWORKRAIL #scotrail #electrification #scotland #trainsinscotland #railwaysinscotland #railway @scotrail @networkrail #21CR #21stcenturyrailwaymen 3d

anotherdaycalling This is the neat steelwork inside the wooden shuttering which will be hidden for ever once the concrete is poured in to provide the support for the new bridge on the A338, Station Road at Grove in Oxfordshire all to create a new bridge 1.5 metres higher than the old one to enable the electricity supply cables to run under the bridge for the Paddington to Bristol electrification ! #electrification #GWR #bridgeBuilding #networkRail #BamNuttall #steelwork #shuttering #GreatWesternRailway #GroveOxfordshire #Oxfordshire #Wantage #A338Grove #GroveA338 #NewBridge #PreConcrete 5d

yiddishkayt Reading from #Kulbak’s electrifying novel “The Zelmenyaners” in a Minsker heyf (residential courtyard), though one much nicer than Reb Zelmele’s brood would have inhabited. #Helix2015 #Minsk #literatour #Yiddish #electrification 7d

nationalrenewableenergylab NREL #researchers tour the #Electrification Pilot Site at Fort Carson #Army Base in #ColoradoSprings, #Colorado. The research group recently completed a Federal Energy Management Program-backed analysis of the 400 sites that represent a combined 75% of the federal government's #energy use. (Photo by Dennis Schroeder/NREL)

When it comes to energy use, what the federal government wants is more of less. That means fewer greenhouse gases, fewer buildings powered solely by #electricity generated from fossil fuels, and fewer gas-guzzling fleets on the road.

An executive order issued by @whitehouse in March puts greater emphasis on work done at NREL to help #government agencies meet their goals. NREL has long been a resource for federal agencies on #energyefficiency efforts and #renewableenergy #technology. The newest executive order calls for tougher goals and spurs agencies to do more than what they've done already. http://go.usa.gov/364UV

_factspace_ Так часто у девушек электризуются волосы. Это, должно быть, очень раздражает. Но как избавиться от электризации? Все очень легко — нужно просто следовать этим советам:
1. Попробуйте мыть голову привычной теплой водой, а вот ополаскивать холодной.
2. Желательной пользоваться такими средствами после мыться головы, в состав которых входят антистатические компоненты.
3. Попробуйте смазать волосы специальными средствами, содержащие термозащиту, после использования фена/утюжка.
4. Делайте увлажняющую маску на голове хотя бы один раз в семь дней, чтобы волосы не были сухими, то есть меньше электризовались.
5. Если вы носите шапки, то для вас должны существовать только такие шапки, которые сделаны из натуральных тканей.
6. Забудьте про все разновидности расчесок, для вас должна существовать только расчески из дерева.
7. Если у вас рядом находится лавандовое или розовое масло, то можно чуть-чуть обмакнуть расческу у и причесаться — электризация мгновенно уйдет.
8. В самых экстремальных ситуациях, можно просто пригладить волосы мокрыми руками.

anotherdaycalling This is the progress being made on the new bridge on the A338 Station Road at Grove in Oxfordshire to enable the Paddington to Bristol electrification. This is the site on the south of the railway line which is ahead of the site on the north side which had additional problems of a small copse and a pond which had to be cleared and drained along with newts [related to the dinosaur family] which had to be rehoused further east towards Didcot. The work is being carried out by Bam Nuttall on behalf of Network Rail, but is it possible that not everyone is gainfully employed ? But it is possible that he has got a hard hat that is in date if anyone who knows about "Corporate Manslaughter Liability" who works for the Ministry of Justice is reading this, the phrase lip service to health and safety springs to mind ! #MinistryOfJustice #HealthAndSafety #HealthAndSafetyExecutive #hardHat #A338Grove #Grove #GroveA338 #GroveBridge #GroveOxfordshire #Oxfordshire #Wantage #electrification #newBridge #NetworkRail #BamNuttall #bridgeBuilding #groundwork #steelwork #buildingSite #GWR #GreatWesternRailway #preConcrete #progress 2w
