Through partnership with IDAEA-CSIC two AQMesh pods were co-located with a reference station and scaled locally in Barcelona (ref. Advanced user mode), providing R2 of 0.97 for NO and 0.89 for NO2. One pod was then moved to a second reference point within the city to establish repeatability of results using the scaling factors derived from the first reference. This resulted in a correlation of 0.98 for NO, and 0.86 for NO2. This trial shows that a high degree of air quality monitoring accuracy can be achieved through local scaling and this accuracy is maintained when AQMesh is then used to monitor independently in new locations.
New York PSC mandates grid-scale storage projects for investor-owned utilities
With the mass proliferation of energy storage capacity, New York regulators have mandated investor-owned utilities deploy energy storage systems by the 2018. The state Public Service Commission (PSC) issued an order last week requiring each individual utility to have energy storage projects “deployed and operating at no fewer than two separate distribution substations or feeders.” In addition, the projects should address at least two grid functions, such as boosting capacity or reducing peak load. &ld...

Measure Partners With AES To Deploy Drones At Record Scale for the Energy Industry
Measure recently announced a global partnership with The AES Corporation to scale and leverage its industry-leading drone service to inspect AES` energy infrastructure in 17 countries. The use of the drone technology is expected to help AES improve safety and avoid more than 30,000 hours of hazardous work per year with safer and more efficient aerial inspection services. "This is the year drone technology gets fully integrated in operations. At many of the nations` leading energy companies we are seeing a push...
EnerNOC Japan is Awarded Its First Commercial-Scale DR Contract
EnerNOC recently announced that after successful pilots with several Japanese utilities, EnerNOC Japan has been awarded its first commercial-scale contract for 60 megawatts of turnkey demand response capacity starting this summer."This is a significant milestone for our Japanese operations. Over the past several years, the Japanese market has slowly been working its way through a period of market reform. During that time, we have been through a rigorous and lengthy pilot process consistently proving that demand...
Renishaw’s pioneering RESOLUTE encoder family is now compatible with Yaskawa serial communications protocol
Renishaw`s RESOLUTEabsolute optical encoder is now compatible with the Yaskawa serial communications protocol in linear and rotary (angle) encoder formats. This allows RESOLUTE to be used with Yaskawa`s drives and controllers such as the Sigma 7 range of servo-products. Yaskawa equipment is regularly used in electronics assembly, Flat Panel Display (FPD) manufacturing, factory automation and general motion control applications. A priority for many motion control applications is to increase throughput, accuracy...
