  • Energy Efficient Products: the case of Latin America

    Companies manufacturing and selling appliances, equipment and lighting in Latin America (LA) face a growing demand from governments and consumers: reducing energy consumption. In a region of about 20 countries, where Spanish is the dominant language and regulatory systems are based on similar legal models, this demand wouldn’t seem to be a significant regulatory problem to energy-using ...

  • Profile of a white tag project

    Few topics we write about here draw as much attention as energy efficiency certificates. After we mention the certificates, we inevitably receive inquiries from data centers or other large energy users, who want more information.The certificates also are called “white tags,” a term trademarked by marketer Sterling Planet. Interest in the certificates likely stems from the increasing use ...

  • EC support for UK power link raises Ireland’s offshore export potential

    The European Commission (EC) announced November 18 it had given priority status to ISLES, a cluster of Irish Sea grid projects which would transmit power from proposed Irish offshore wind farms to the UK grid. There are currently five Irish offshore windfarm projects for a total 2.6 GW of capacity. The inclusion of ISLES in the EC’s list of “projects of common interest” allows ...

  • Marine AC UPS for Critical Offshore Installations

    Equipment installed in ships or offshore installations typically operate under tough conditions, and any possible equipment failures can have serious cost impact. Despite this, products not really suited for the applications are often chosen based on the initial cost rather than looking at the total cost of ownership. One example is the use of a modular marine AC UPS versus the use of a modified ...
