Global provided CeramaTek kits for a complete exterior lighting retrofit at Orange Coast Infiniti in Westminster, California. The project consisted of retrofitting 1000 Watt MH parking lot and flood light fixtures to 315 Watt CeramaTek. After consulting with Executive Manager Ken Kaiden, the goal of the project was to maximize energy savings while providing the highest quality light for his dealership. CeramaTek was selected as the preferred technology over 575 Watt Pulse Start Metal Halide and LED due to its performance, light output, longevity, energy savings and aggressive Return on Investment.
Three ways artificial intelligence is helping to save the world
As computers get smarter, scientists look at new ways to enlist them in environmental protection. When you think of artificial intelligence, the first image that likely comes to mind is one of sentient robots that walk, talk and emote like humans. But there’s a different kind of AI that’s becoming prevalent in nearly all of the sciences. It’s known as machine learning, and it revolves around enlisting computers in the task of sorting through the massive amounts of data that modern technology...
Energy Saving in Air Conditioning is a must!
Energy Efficiencyis now a must! Air Conditioningin residential and commercial buildings is the largest single consumer of electricity so tenants and owners are now looking for ways to reduce theirair conditioning energy costs. EnviroTech, a company based inthe UAE, Oman, KSA and South Americawith all productsMade in England, is helping a wide range of customers to reduce these Air Conditioning Energy Bills and Electricity Consumption by fitting compact control systems in the form of a small box installed next...
Total Exhaust Biosafety Cabinet Upgrade at Research Facility Provides Significant Energy Savings
When Harvard’s Biology Research Infrastructure (BRI) facility opened in 2006, they required four biological safety cabinets to provide primary containment during animal procedures. In the selection process, workspace containment and isolation requirements, operation modes for non-use periods and maintenance, building integration, and the energy burden to the building system were all considered. Choosing a cabinet that provided the level of safety required while at the same time offering energy-efficiency...
Case Study - Waste Heat Generates Steam and Savings
OVERVIEWA coil coating facility purchased a new a 15,000 SCFM Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) which had a nominal heat transfer efficiency rate of 90% thermal energy recovery. It was designed with supplemental fuel injection (SFI) which is used during low VOC loading conditions, to help save fuel cost. The facility was looking for additional ways to decrease their exhaust air temperature and reduce operating costs. ACTIONThe high exhaust temperature (above 650°F) and large airflow (12,650 SCFM) in the...
Hybrid System in Fiji: The Sun Saves Fuel
When you think of Fiji, you first think of vacation, wonderful beaches with palms and crystal clear water with perfect spots for scuba diving. We also thought of energy: Energy that could help build a more ecological electrical power supply. The existing power supply on the three separate islands of Kadavu, Lakeda and Rotuma around the Fijian mainland had been fully based on diesel generators. Now the SMA Fuel Save Controller 2.0 is helping to integrate solar energy into the power grid. That guarantees more...
