Chill Out: Chemical Descaling of Condensers Maximizes Efficiency
Chiller units — open loop or closed loop — naturally experience performance degradations over time. As noted by Facilities Net, chillers and companion condenser units are often the single biggest energy spend in an organization and despite predictive maintenance methods such as vibration analysis, infrared thermography and rotor bar testing, scale and foiling still occurs. Here’s a look at the impact of scale on your condenser system and the steps you can take to maximize efficiency. Sources...
23 countries just got energy efficiency report cards – and they’re almost all flunking
The most valuable tool we have to meet the world’s growing energy demand while reducing greenhouse gas production could be figuring out how to use energy more efficiently. Investing in energy efficiency can also save money, reduce pollution, encourage development and create new jobs. Yet, efficiency is often passed by in favor of more expensive energy solutions. Exactly how much room for improvement there is in this department is the subject of the 2016 International Energy Efficiency Scorecard, published...
Moving energy management forward
Energy efficiency is increasingly valued at all scales. ESOS has brought awareness, and possibly action, to large organisations. SMEs are increasingly aware of the benefits, from both a cost perspective and a reputational one of managing energy to achieve greater efficiency. The EI’s recently published Energy Barometer report revealed that energy professionals across sectors (on both the demand and supply side) and disciplines value energy efficiency and management and recognise its potential to transform...
What are the benefits of using BIM to improve building performance and create a sustainable, energy ...
BIM (Building Information Modelling)is not just about 3D designs; it is about fully understanding a building model. This includes all information associated with building ‘objects’ (building components), how buildings are constructed, and how they will be maintained during their lifetime – by aiding existing manual processes with digital technology. The aim of BIM is to encourage greater collaboration with project information, update practices and develop more realistic building models by...
Open Teleconference Of The State Energy Advisory Board Announced
On June 17, 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced an open teleconference of the State Energy Advisory Board (STEAB) in the Federal Register. STEAB advises DOE and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) on the operation of its energy efficiency programs, renewable energy programs, and grant programs for research and deployment in energy efficiency and renewable energy fields. The tentative agenda includes: "Receive STEAB Task Force updates on action items and revised objectives...
