Connected Everything: Have We Finally Reached the Tipping Point? - Renewable Energy World

But what does the proliferation of these smart and connected devices mean for our energy systems? I was recently in Home Depot, taking my usual look at LED prices to see how much they had come down. I was excited to see that they had dropped to around $4 per bulb. Four years ago, my wife was pretty fed up with me for spending $20 on LEDs whose harsh light made our house feel like a laboratory. Not only is today’s pricing becoming much more manageable, but the actual light quality is passing the test of my wife (who has quite high standards as an apparel developer for Nike). On this particular shopping trip, I found something a bit more interesting than just the declining price of LEDs.

I got home, connected the system (some assembly required), and now my front and back porch lights are connected and controllable via my iPhone. Who are the leading providers of these smart applications? March: How best to encourage renewable energy after COP21. Participants at the IEA Renewable Energy Working Party meeting in Paris.

March: How best to encourage renewable energy after COP21

More than 150 experts from around the globe share ideas with the IEA 14 March 2016 More than 150 researchers, government officials, investors and other energy experts met Monday with IEA officials in Paris to share ideas about the opportunities and challenges for renewable energy following the global accord to limit global warming to below 2 degrees Celsius. The findings from the invitation-only meeting of the IEA Renewable Energy Working Party (REWP) will help inform Agency recommendations, including a special report on renewable energy in the forthcoming World Energy Outlook 2016. Executive Director Fatih Birol told the participants that the COP21 accord is just the first step towards a new energy sector.

Besides the effect of fossil fuel costs, the meeting looked at the cost-effectiveness of carbon pricing and other ways to improve the competitiveness and uptake of renewables necessary to meet the COP21 pledge. Ecomagination.

International Institute for Environment and Development. The World’s Biggest Companies on Why They Buy Renewables: ‘It’s a Very Clear Economic Issue’ Many companies, both large and small, continue to struggle with the economics and complexity of procuring clean energy.

The World’s Biggest Companies on Why They Buy Renewables: ‘It’s a Very Clear Economic Issue’

The Rocky Mountain Institute estimates that for every successful renewable energy deal there are five to 10 failed attempts or significant delays, which impedes overall market growth. Reflecting these challenges, the commercial solar market experienced its first down year in recent history last year. Several companies leading the charge for clean-energy adoption presented on their lessons learned this week at Verge to help other businesses meet their renewable energy purchasing goals.

Use what you already have For General Motors, renewable energy procurement turned out to be a natural extension of the company’s core competencies, said Rob Threlkeld, GM’s manager of renewable energy. “The biggest thing I highlight [to other companies] is to leverage the internal resources they already have available,” said Threlkeld.

Over the course of single day, an average American household sends an entire tank of hot water down the drain—and all of the energy it took to warm it ends up in the sewer.

The Ultimate Source Of Renewable Heat Can Be Found In Our Steaming Sewers

But now it's becoming more common to build a loop to bring that heat back inside. Sewers are hot: on average, the water inside is around 70 degrees. Along with whatever's flushed down toilets, pipes are filled with hot water from dishwashers and laundry machines, and showers. So when "sewage recovery systems" capture the heat from that water and circulate it back through houses—cleaned and in separate pipes, to keep the poop away—it's possible to use it as a renewable source of energy. "Really it's one of the simplest alternative energy systems ever," says Lynn Mueller, CEO and founder of International Wastewater Systems. In a year, an estimated 350 billion kilowatt hours of energy is wasted from heating water, creating a massive carbon footprint and wasting money. Larger systems can serve whole neighborhoods.
