A Building Energy Management System (BEMS) can typically control 60-80% of a building�s energy usage. By optimising the system i.e. getting it to perform consistently with the way a building is used, significant energy savings can be made. In order to identify what can be achieved, it is important to understand the current situation within a building. A Trend Energy Audit reviews the way the building is being used and identifies opportunities where changes to the BEMS will deliver energy savings. These changes can often be undertaken during the audit, delivering immediate savings. The outcome ...
consists of a sequence of connected steps. It is a depiction of a sequence of operations, declared as work of a person, a group of persons, an organization of staff, or one or more simple or complex mechanisms. Workflow may be seen as any abstraction of real work, segregated in workshare, work split or other types of ordering. For control purposes, workflow may be a view on real work under a chosen aspect, thus serving as a virtual representation of actual work. The flow being described often refers to a document that is being transferred from one step to another. A workflow is a model to represent real work for further ...
REVIEWS AND OPINIONS Article - A Wireless Solution For Energy ...
n a world in which people, places and things are becoming increasingly connected, your building�s energy systems need to be connected as well. Unfortunately, less than 2 percent of the 80 billion square feet of existing commercial real estate in the U.S. take advantage of distributed lighting controls to save energy and reduce costs and carbon emissions. Lighting alone accounts for 30 to 40 percent of a commercial building�s electrical use, so the inability to control lighting through a distributed intelligent network to reduce costs is a tremendous missed opportunity. Wiring and installation costs are often cited as ... market research, surveys and trends

Cisco Rolls Out Building Management 'Mediator' : Greentech Media
is delivering early on its promise to bring entire building energy management systems under its control. That's a $12 billion market over the next three years or so, it thinks – but it won't be taking it on alone. On Wednesday, the networking giant announced the availability of its Network Building Mediator, a device that connects HVAC, lighting, security and other electricity-using building systems into its EnergyWise platform. That's at least six months earlier than Cisco originally expected to add building systems to the platform, launched in January with the goal of monitoring and controlling commercial ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
How 3 ARPA-E Grants Could Reinvent Building Efficiency
under its Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) program, which was created to back risky but potentially breakthrough technologies. Out of the 37 projects awarded grants, three are focused on improving building energy efficiency and could help spur what Secretary of Energy Steven Chu hopes will be “the next Industrial Revolution in clean energy technologies.” Stanford University Stanford University, located in Silicon Valley, received $4.9 million from the DOE to research better tools for encouraging energy-saving behavior in homes and small businesses. The two-year project, which will look at smart grid ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
GE Teams with Major Utilities, Builders and Communities to Increase American ...
NISKAYUNA, N.Y., Aug 24, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- A team of technologists from GE's Industrial Solutions, Appliances, Lighting and Research divisions is partnering with major utilities, builders and local communities in the western U.S. to evaluate and develop new strategies that reduce energy usage in new and existing homes by up to 70%** or more. With the average U.S. household paying $1,240 per year in electricity costs, this program could save homeowners more than $850 per year on their electricity costs. GE and its project partners will assemble a comprehensive package of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Houses Get Smart
The home of the very near future is pretty convenient and not too hard to imagine. Forget to turn off the lights while on vacation? No big deal. Want to turn up the home heat before a wintry workday ends? Easy. And wouldn’t it be nice to remotely switch off non-essentials if a peak-demand price surcharge kicks in? In this house – your house – gas and electric gadgets are controlled with a laptop keystroke, at work from your Blackberry or via your TV remote. This so-called “smart house” can help save money on energy costs with programmable appliances, like a dishwasher that can turn on automatically ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Google Answers: Need Inexpensive Multi-Room Temperature Monitoring ...
I have recently moved into a house with a heating problem. We are redesigning the heating for several rooms, and the heating company wants to know how much hotter or colder various rooms are over time. I'd like to set up 4 or 5 wireless thermometers in different rooms, and somehow capture a history of temperatures for each room over several days, to show how each room heats differently. I thought I might be able to use some of the many "weather monitors" that seem to be available, but I haven't found a solution that seems to do what I want. Can someone suggest if there are good products/components that ...
