Global provided the ballasts and lamps for a 2012 mall retrofit located in Fresno, CA. The project consisted of retrofitting 1,000 watt HPS parking lot fixtures to 375 watt CeramaTek, 400 watt HPS shoebox fixtures to 140 watt CeramaTek, and 100 watt HPS wall pack fixtures to 45 watt CeramaTek. After consulting with the owner, and his team, the goal of the project was to provide the highest quality light possible while maximizing energy savings. CeramaTek was selected as the preferred technology due to its performance, light output, energy savings and aggressive returns on investment.
Are you wasting the cashback potential of energy audits?
If the government offered your business £20 cashback on every £100 you spent on energy, you would probably head for the front of the queue. Yet that`s exactly the sort of money saving opportunity an energy audit can deliver. The Carbon Trust`s analysis of a sample of recent ESOS energy savings opportunities assessments showed that an average cost reduction of 20% was achievable through cost-effective energy saving measures. On an average energy spend of £1.8m, this translates into potential...
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...
