  • Data Centre CRAC unit efficiency improvements

    One of the main types of project Munters look at is energy efficiency improvements within the thermal management side. One of the easiest changes that can be made is swapping out the old AC powered motors for EC powered impellors. the reductions in energy is considerable, with some older belt drive unit changes measuring a saving of over 60% this is due to the design of the new impellors and the ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • Big Data: It’s all about the strategy

    Big Data, a huge amount of data, is a challenge for researchers and analysts. Although the data sets can lead to many new insights after the evaluation, their complexity, fast rate of change, and simply their amount makes it almost impossible to process them with classic methods and without smart technical aids. Images, audios, videos, GPS satellite data, internal company information, social ...

  • Hot sectors for energy efficiency

    It’s clear that the energy efficiency industry is undergoing an unprecedented boom, spurred by state and federal support and movement toward a smarter grid. But for those in the industry, where exactly can the new business – and the jobs – be found?Two new reports by Colorado-based Pike Research shed some light.After years of focusing on bringing efficiency to manufacturing, policymakers are ...

  • Energy efficiency without trying (and with)

    John Lennon wrote that life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.  Apparently, the same is true of energy efficiency. Energy savings happen when we’re busy doing other things – Internet-based things specifically. We use email, bank online and download music not to save energy, but to make life easier and more interesting.  Energy efficiency is a ...

  • May the Force be energy efficient

    It was hard to get excited about IBM’s Watson http://www-03.ibm.com/innovation/us/watson/ besting two humans in the TV game show Jeopardy and walking away with a $1 million prize last month. After all, thanks to the entertainment industry, we’ve seen robots and computers win in all kinds of ways, from HAL duping the smart ...

  • US to lead on efficient design of energy systems

    Despite the availability of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technologies and proven benefits and performance of these systems, projects often are not implemented even when investment is compelling. The United States will lead this effort, building on its CHP Partnership Program to identify and clear barriers to efficient design of on-site energy systems. The project will promote collaborative ...

  • Classification of water supply systems based on energy efficiency

    The Brazilian Labeling Program is a forceful instrument for the conservation of energy. In addition to allowing consumers to evaluate the best products from an energy point of view, it sets targets to make the products increasingly more efficient. In this context, buildings that can currently obtain the energy efficiency label are also included, demonstrating to customers the concern for ...

  • Efficient aeration system boosts energy savings

    A new efficient aeration system saves the Ontario, Ore., wastewater treatment facility $47,000 annually in energy costs. Besides giving this community a financial boost, the new system netted additional equipment cost savings by cutting aeration horsepower by more than half at the plant. The environmentally conscious city, located in the Oregon/Idaho border area, is meeting all of its effluent ...

  • Improving energy efficiency with an intelligent remote energy management system

    With the growing demand for energy efficiency solutions to contend rising energy costs, many technologies have become available in the market today. However, without intelligent and continuous energy data measurements, which can be analysed for strategic energy planning, carbon emissions, energy efficiency, reliability and electric costs, the maximising of overall savings is much more difficult ...

  • Breakthrough in energy efficient desalination technology

    Saltworks' proof-tested process employs an innovative thermo-ionic energy conversion system. The energy reduction is achieved by harnessing low temperature heat and atmospheric dryness to overcome the desalination energy barrier. The system works best in the dry regions that need water. Saltworks President Joshua Zoshi said, 'a desalination technology powered by atmospheric dryness is very much ...

  • China’s booming energy efficiency industry

    China’s energy efficiency industry is emerging as a high growth sector with the country projected to spend as much as Rmb2.1 trillion (USD300 billion) over the next five years on products and services that cut energy use. The key drivers of this development are the Chinese government’s determination to curb the country’s expanding energy appetite as well as higher production and energy costs. ...

  • The one energy efficiency report to read

    Jon Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, raised a lot of eyebrows recently when he suggested that the US may no longer need to build conventional power plants – that efficiency and renewable energy might meet our needs.He has since clarified his position, saying much will depend on how we think about energy, its use in the system, and market response.Still, critics ...

  • Energy efficiency’s US$1tr identity

    The energy efficiency industry is a bit like the orphan who grows up to discover his long-lost parents left him a fortune.The industry suffers from an identity crisis, says a report by the American Solar Energy Society. What is energy efficiency? Insulating attics? Demand response? Plug-in hybrids? Led lights? Combined heat and power?ASES decided to quantify the worth of the energy efficiency job ...

  • How to become energy efficiency’s #1

    It’s easy to get the impression that technology game-changers happen in a near flash. And the stories of Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Apple leave us thinking that genius pops right out of the dorm room.   But in the energy industry it’s not that easy. The innovation we see today often stems from years of late nights, deep discussion and hard negotiation.   ...

  • Building Experience: Energy Efficient Buildings

    Issue: The development of large commercial, governmental and even residential buildings which take advantage of energy efficient design and incorporate on-site renewable energy sources could have a major impact on achieving and maintaining Kyoto targets on reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the future. Although demonstration sites across Europe have been built, the lessons learnt in their ...


  • The efficiency and eco-efficiency of manufacturing

    In this paper, we review the efficiency of both manufacturing processes and systems over recent decades and compare nano-materials technologies in this context. To a first approximation, nano-materials processes appear to be about as efficient as semi-conductor processes. That is, their second law efficiencies are of the order 10−5, while conventional processes are of order 10−2. ...
