  • `Standards are desperately needed for plastic and pesticide contamination in soil´

    In addition to plastic in the oceans, plastic contamination in arable land throughout Europe and other parts of the world is a growing problem. No standards exist for these types of soil pollutants, nor for pesticide residues or their degradation products. For this reason, Professor Violette Geissen is calling for standards to be implemented. On 15 June, Geissen will deliver her inaugural address ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Maintenance To-Do: Coil Cleaning

    A coil-cleaning program should be an integral part of maintaining some kinds of process cooling equipment. Most people think of coil cleaning as a building or facility prepares to turn on the air-conditioners for another season. Admittedly, spring is a perfect time to put such cleaning and maintenance at the top of the to-do list. Condenser and evaporator coils are an integral part of HVAC ...

  • What!! - No energy manager?

    Though energy prices seem to be subsiding, the fact is that energy costs will be rising – soon and especially in Pennsylvania when electric rate caps begin to expire at the end of this year.Most large commercial and industrial firms are preparing. They typically employ energy management personnel that focus on reducing energy usage by procuring energy at the best rates, apply for low-cost loans, ...

  • Why enterprise energy management?

    I pose the above question to start a discussion on the why’s and how’s of an enterprise energy management strategy. With the recent unrest in the Middle East and northern Africa combined with the increasing energy demand from China and India, the price of oil is expected to continue to rise for the foreseeable future. In fact, trends in energy pricing indicate utility companies are ...

  • Energy management for increased profitability

    “The cost of purchasing the energy needed for production by an industrial facility is viewed as managed input and typically receives significant attention, while the use of that energy once it is inside the factory is often viewed as simply the cost of doing business. While this is not true in all industrial facilities, experience has shown that unless the facility actively manages energy ...

  • Energy management for smart community

    Under the project title “Smartes Yspertal” an energy management concept for municipal administration buildings was created in the 1,900 inhabitant community in Lower Austria. Savings potential and inefficiencies in public buildings are thus to be shown. Microtronics has equipped the buildings with data loggers of the type ...

  • Energy Management Contract

    1. Introduction Energy management contract (EMC) is a new market-oriented energy saving mechanism. It is not to market a product or a technology, but a financial management method to reduce the energy costs. EMC companies provide the customers with a complete set of energy saving services, including energy auditing, project design & financing, engineering construction, ...

  • Lean and energy management

    Lean manufacturing principles have been practiced in the US for decades and for most manufacturing companies, energy management programs are consistent with Lean initiatives.  In fact, many energy efficiency improvements can result from lean manufacturing programs without actually focusing on energy savings. Examples include: Process improvement projects can deliver a more consistent ...

  • Data centre managers fail on energy management

    Research shows data centre managers are still not making energy efficiency a priority, reports Envido. New Gartner research has found that many data centre managers have yet to turn on the energy measurement and monitoring tools they need to kick start energy consumption reduction initiatives and begin considering energy management a priority. Gartner said that energy management both in terms of ...

  • Management changes in the Lithuanian energy sector

    Lithuania was invited at the end of 2002 to become a member of the European Union and to join NATO. The country, being in transition from a centrally planned to a free market economy, is experiencing fundamental transformations. Lithuania has inherited an energy sector with a comparatively good technical infrastructure but inappropriate for a small independent state. In order to transform the ...

  • Energy management program for the State of Kuwait

    Oil and natural gas, Kuwait's only resources of primary energy are also the only revenues from which national income is derived, including foreign exchange. Local energy consumption, excluding feedstock for refineries, estimated to be around 15% is increasing year by year, thus, posing a serious threat to the sustainable growth and financial well being of the country. Energy policy makers in ...

  • Implementing an Energy Management System in a School

    Implementing an energy management system in a school can reduce expenditure on energy and minimise waste. This can be both as a result of on-site management/operational issues as well as through investment in energy saving (no-, low-, medium- or high-cost measures). Carbon emissions can be reduced through the ...

  • Energy risk management with carbon assets

    This article proposes a mean-variance optimisation and portfolio frontier analysis of energy risk management with carbon assets, introduced in January 2005 as part of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. In a stylised exercise, we compute returns, standard deviations and correlations for various asset classes from April 2005 to January 2009. Our central result features an expected return of 3% with a ...

  • Optimisation design of an energy management strategy for hybrid vehicles

    This paper presents an innovative method to analyse and design an optimal energy management strategy for a power-split power train hybrid vehicle. A hybrid dynamical system theory is introduced to formulate the problem of hybrid vehicle control system design that incorporates both continuous and discrete dynamics. The sequential quadratic programming method is proposed to optimise power ...
