ABATEMENT -- The reduction or elimination of pollution. ABSORPTANCE -- The ratio of the radiation absorbed by a surface. For example, when coal (chemical energy) is burned, it produces heat (thermal energy) that is then captured and used to turn a generator (mechanical energy), which transforms the energy into electricity (electrical energy).
Energy Efficiency. The achievement of using less energy without reducing the benefit provided by the end-use service. The terms defined in this Glossary are used throughout the Bioenergy website and publications. Each definition is a short description intended to help students and researchers understand biomass terminology.
Use the alphabetical index below to locate terms, or scroll through the terms and definitions in the full text glossary. The terms "active" or "real" are used to modify the base term "power" to differentiate it from Reactive Power. See Power, Reactive Power, Apparent Power.
