  • Smart meters: are they a cure for energy blindness?

    No doubt smart meters are a good thing, but even their most ardent fans must admit that a degree of hoopla surrounds these little digital boxes. We hear that if consumers can just see how much power they use in real time, and what it costs, our energy woes will be no more. Smart meters will even cure the blind. The energy blind that is. "It can be difficult to separate the hype from legitimate ...

  • You've Deployed Smart Meters. Now What?

    Smart meters provide the opportunity for utilities to better match power generation and consumption. On one hand, the data smart meters generate can be invaluable in reaching this goal. On the other hand, utilities are struggling to handle the huge quantities of data generated because traditional analysis tools were not designed to handle this volume, and are not able to meet the near-real-time ...

  • Why you need to care about lapse rate

    If you got in Willie Wonka's glass (but let's say its a thin, stretchy plastic) elevator and pushed the "1st Floor: Tropopause" button, you'd notice that as you rose through the troposphere, you'd get colder. (You'd also get deader, but this is pretend.) It wouldn't matter it you started out in Ecuador or Norway, it would still almost certainly get steadily colder as you rose. This is mostly ...
