Commercial buildings are the largest single consumers of energy in the United States.  We live in a 24/7 environment where buildings and the equipment in them are running all the time.  Whether it is heating up the office in morning before we come in or lights in offices, parking lots, hallways, and in other locations that are on for between 6 and 24 hours each day, or data centers where numerous racks of servers run constantly, our buildings are constantly consuming energy.  The result is that commercial buildings are responsible for approximately 20% of the energy used annually in the U.S. To reduce this usage and its ...
mechanisms to manage customer consumption of electricity in response to supply conditions, for example, having electricity customers reduce their consumption at critical times or in response to market prices. The difference is that demand response mechanisms respond to explicit requests to shut off, whereas dynamic demand devices passively shut off when stress in the grid is sensed. Demand response can involve actually curtailing power used or by starting on site generation which may or may not be connected in parallel with the grid.This is a quite different concept from energy efficiency , which means using less power to ...

Why Enterprise Carbon and Energy Management Systems are So Important
Enterprise carbon and energy management (ECEM) systems in many respects represent a conglomeration of important software services, likely to become the enterprise's most strategic tool. Such systems are in the process of redefining how an organization addresses its impact on the world. They are moving from a position where financial elements tend to rule decision-making to one where societal responsibilities play a significant part of business strategy. As carbon becomes a new entry on a corporate balance sheet, organizations must scramble to understand the implications. Carbon will become a commodity and a traceable ... market research, surveys and trends

Millions of homes to get energy efficiency displays | Green Tech ...
The research company predicts there will be 28.1 million users of energy displays by 2015. About half of the users will have actual devices, while more than 11 million will access that information from Web-based dashboards and 2.6 million from mobile phones, according to Pike Research. The purpose of these displays is to guide consumers in lowering their energy consumption. Simply making people aware of their electricity use will drive people to make behavior changes to cut their utility bills and environmental footprint. Studies have found that a combination of more detailed information and utility-run incentive programs can ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
In search of efficiency
Surging energy costs are putting the squeeze on hospitals like never before—scrambling budgets, sometimes tripling gas and electric bills and siphoning off cash that might otherwise be used for needed capital projects.  The good news: There are untapped conservation opportunities galore to help soften the impact. Far beyond hospital walls, sharply higher costs for energy have shot up the list of concerns for the American public and businesses alike in recent months. Consumers upset about $3-a-gallon gasoline have nothing on facility managers, however, with hospital numbers-crunching having become an increasingly grim ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

GE Counting On Energy Monitoring And Solar To Cut Home Energy Usage By 70%
on a $5 million project to connect homes in the Western U.S. to its energy management system, LED lights, appliances and solar panels. The purpose of the project is to research home energy efficiency and test new tracking systems. GE thinks participants will be able to save 70% on their electricity bills: 30% by monitoring and adjusting their energy usage, and 40% by installing solar panels. An average home in the U.S. pays $1,240 a year for its electricity, and GE believes the program could cut this sum by $850. Normally, these types of green energy upgrades take a number of years to pay for themselves. The program will be ... 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 ...
