» Industrial Energy Management Systems Navigant Research Industrial energy management systems are evolving quickly to help industrial facilities minimize energy use and waste while still meeting the demands of production. Energy management system engagements with industrial clients are by nature high-touch and require the effective combination of software installation and a host of related services. With their global presence, extensive domain expertise, and established infrastructure to support long-term engagements, large original equipment manufacturers have long dominated this market.

inteliLIGHT® NEAR ZERO STREET LIGHTING ENERGY COSTS Nowadays, everyone is looking for alternative energy solutions and solar power is one of the most utilized. In major cities around the world, the city infrastructure is already using solar power to cut down on carbon emission and become more sustainable. Near Zero is an efficient solution that harvests solar light with solar panels installed on street lighting fixtures and injects the electricity into the grid during the day. Almost the same energy is consumed by the LED luminaries from the grid at night, leading to close-to-zero energy costs. You get close to zero energy costs for lighting the city, plus remote management for the street lighting system through inteliLIGHT® StreetLight Management Software. And by using our energy grid injection option, you avoid using the very expensive and maintenance-heavy rechargeable batteries used by classic solar LED street lights.

Energy Efficiency Saving energy in buildings Buildings account for 40 per cent of the global energy consumption and nearly the same share of CO2 emissions.Consequently, reducing the energy consumption of buildings will be a key priority for any country or community striving to save money and reduce CO2 emissions. With today’s existing technologies, it is possible to reduce energy consumption in buildings by at least 50 per cent, and possibly as much as 80 per cent. These huge savings can be made quite easily with simple measures such as energy-efficient windows, insulation materials, heat regulators, ventilation systems and lighting,just to mention a few. Denmark has been a world leader in energy efficiency in buildings for decades and energy-efficient solutions are widely implemented in newly built and refurbished housing, offices and public institutions all over the country.

The Ministry of Energy and Water Resources begins project to replace wasteful electrical Water heating tanks - Ministry of National Infrastructures, Energy and Water Resources Minister of Energy and Water Resources, Silvan Shalom: “The Ministry’s consumer perspective is reflected in several campaigns conducted in recent years, as in the replacement of about 15,000 electrical water heating tanks that waste energy and consume large amounts of electricity … We will do everything from a genuine public perspective that looks at what is good for the energy economy, the State of Israel and the consumer. The overall consideration must be based on a broad outlook.” The Ministry of Energy and Water Resources began yesterday (April 21, 2013) its project to replace wasteful electrical water heating tanks for the entire population of Israel, and to subsidize the purchase of an economical solar water heating tank. The project budget stands at about NIS 13M, with the Ministry subsidizing NIS 900 of the price of a solar water heating system (including VAT). Four companies won the Ministry tender, Or Hateva, Ideal, Amcor and Chromagen.

Wireless power The most common form of wireless power transmission is carried out using direct induction followed by resonant magnetic induction. Other methods under consideration are electromagnetic radiation in the form of microwaves or lasers[1] and electrical conduction through natural media.[2] Electric energy transfer[edit] An electric current flowing through a conductor, such as a wire, carries electrical energy. When an electric current passes through a circuit there is an electric field in the dielectric surrounding the conductor; magnetic field lines around the conductor and lines of electric force radially about the conductor.[3] In a direct current circuit, if the current is continuous, the fields are constant; there is a condition of stress in the space surrounding the conductor, which represents stored electric and magnetic energy, just as a compressed spring or a moving mass represents stored energy.

California Regulators Take Bold Steps Toward a New Energy Efficiency Paradigm California has always been at the forefront of efforts to accelerate clean-energy innovation and address climate change. This past Friday, the state took another giant leap by updating several obscure but important regulations that were inadvertently hindering progress in energy efficiency. It’s hard to overstate the significance of these new rules and the directive to accelerate high-opportunity pilot projects and programs into the market. This new “pay-for-performance” paradigm is a big deal for California and has the potential to unleash market forces to bring efficiency to scale. Growing social and political pressure is driving ever more aggressive climate and energy goals, such as California Governor Jerry Brown’s commitment to double the efficiency of existing buildings in the state.

Energy Department Announces $10 Million for Innovative, Energy-Saving Lighting R&D Technologies As part of the Obama Administration’s effort to cut energy waste and double energy productivity by 2030, the Energy Department today announced $10 million to support research, development and manufacturing of solid-state lighting (SSL) technologies across the country. This funding will accelerate the development of high-quality light-emitting diode (LED) and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) products with the potential to reduce lighting energy use for American families and businesses by one half and enhance U.S. global competitiveness. During the past 10 years, the Department has helped accelerate SSL technology deployment, yielding an estimated energy savings of $1.8 billion in 2013. Solid-state lighting technologies, which include both LED and organic light emitting diode technologies, have the potential to save Americans $26 billion a year in energy costs by 2030. This funding opportunity is open to applications in the following areas:

Science Fair Project Ideas for Energy Savers Sometimes the hardest part of a science fair project is knowing where to start. That's why it is best to begin by simply asking, "What am I interested in learning more about?" If you are curious about energy, electricity, and the environment, we've got some great ideas for you. Baltic Energy Market Interconnection Plan The energy markets of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania lack adequate connections, both between themselves and to other parts of the EU. For instance, the only power links currently between the Baltic States and another EU country are the Estlink 1 and 2 connections between Estonia and Finland. This lack of integration drives up energy prices for consumers and lowers energy security in the region. The Baltic Energy Market Interconnection Plan (BEMIP) aims to fix this by creating a fully functioning and integrated energy market in the region, supported by the necessary infrastructure. BEMIP projects are part of the European Economic Recovery Plan (EERP) which means that they have been eligible for over half a billion euros in funding.

Solar Roadways Solar panels that you can drive, park and walk on. They melt snow & cut greenhouse gases by 75% ?!!! Solar Roadways will be featured this Saturday morning, February 14th on Innovation Nation on CBS with Mo Rocca. Here's a still shot from the show with Adam Yamaguchi on the Sandpoint Airport runway: a potential Solar Roadways pilot project for later this year.

Waste and Efficiency Planning and Implementation With growing populations and increasing impacts from climate change, forward-thinking cities are scrambling to adopt green infrastructure to become more resilient. An entry to the Connect4Climate (World Bank) Action4Climate video competition “Climate TV, City Climate” discusses some of the issues cities are facing and how green infrastructure solutions can help a city cope with increased heat and stormwater run-off. Green roofs, green spaces and flood management systems can help cities like Rotterdam manage climate impacts. Elsewhere, cities are innovating with renewable energy and resource management systems to yield major reductions in carbon emissions and improved climate resilience. Visionary water utilities are beginning to recognize the tremendous amount of valuable resources that lie in city wastewater.
