  • How to Manage risk in volatile energy markets

    In the last year wholesale power prices swung by around 45%, which is twice as volatile as the previous five years.  Those who fixed their electric bill for the next three years at the height of this market could  end up paying thousands of pounds more than others, who may have pursued a more calculated and less risky approach. Fixed vs. ...

  • Is the energy efficiency service markets still MUSH?

    We hear a lot about energy efficiency these days, but who is actually pursuing it? In recent years most of the big players that install efficiency measures, the energy service companies (ESCos), have found work largely in the MUSH market:  municipal and state governments, universities, schools and hospitals. In fact, a report in June 2010 by  ...

  • Market-Proven Energy-Saving Systems (ESS) move to mainstream

    Now that Energy-saving Systems (ESS) such as DESMI’s OptiSave™, a pump control solution that feeds pumps with just the right amount of energy, have been thoroughly proven, shipowners finally have a cost-effective, simple solution to meet IMO emissions regulations. And everyone is getting on board. The case for compliance “It’s the first time we can ...

  • Energy Management Contract

    1. Introduction Energy management contract (EMC) is a new market-oriented energy saving mechanism. It is not to market a product or a technology, but a financial management method to reduce the energy costs. EMC companies provide the customers with a complete set of energy saving services, including energy auditing, project design & financing, engineering construction, ...

  • Best states for energy efficiency

    If you live in Connecticut, California, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York, Texas, North Carolina, New Jersey or Ohio your state is doing something right – a lot right – when it comes to energy efficiency. The ten states deserve kudos, in that order, for policies that encourage energy efficiency, according to a report issued this week by the Center for American Progress ...

  • The Clean Energy Voyage

    The United Nations Climate Convention meeting in Warsaw, Poland, comes with less than two years to go for governments to deliver on their promise of a universal new agreement by 2015 - this is the time for ambition rather than caution to define the international climate negotiations. We have in some ways been here before: the Copenhagen UN climate conference was also scheduled to deliver a ...

  • Electric power systems real-time monitoring and control

    In recent decades, several improvements have been achieved in power system operation and control. The evolution was mainly in the development of computational and communication systems. Both areas allowed the analysis of complex models of power system operation and control that resulted in a more flexible system controlled in almost real-time mode. All these improvements favoured the change of ...

  • Energy efficiency without trying (and with)

    John Lennon wrote that life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.  Apparently, the same is true of energy efficiency. Energy savings happen when we’re busy doing other things – Internet-based things specifically. We use email, bank online and download music not to save energy, but to make life easier and more interesting.  Energy efficiency is a ...

  • Improving energy efficiency with an intelligent remote energy management system

    With the growing demand for energy efficiency solutions to contend rising energy costs, many technologies have become available in the market today. However, without intelligent and continuous energy data measurements, which can be analysed for strategic energy planning, carbon emissions, energy efficiency, reliability and electric costs, the maximising of overall savings is much more difficult ...

  • Online monitoring of polysilicon production in photovoltaic industry – Case Study

    Boom in Photovoltaics Global demand for solar energy is booming as a cost competitive reliable source of clean energy. Because cost of electricity is increasing rapidly, solar energy is gradually becoming cost competitive when compared to conventional energy. Since the source of solar energy is nearly unlimited, solar energy has a tremendous potential to dominate the energy mix in the ...

  • Home energy devices: Can we bewilder Edison?

    Why do so many energy insiders insist that home energy automation will fail?  Many whom I respect say the typical householder will never take the time to fiddle with smart gadgets that reduce energy costs. Their skepticism, however, just elicits a verbal shrug from Peter ...

  • 2014 JRC Ocean Energy Status Report

    Abstract Oceans and seas have the potential to play a significant role in providing clean energy. Different technologies are currently being developed to ensure a long term contribution of ocean energy to the future energy system. Among the different ocean energy technologies, tidal and wave conversion systems are expected to contribute the most to the European energy system in the short ...

  • Independent verification demonstrates high value in the energy industry

    The current UK energy climate is one of movement and action. The latest high-impact report regarding climate change comes from Sir Nicholas Stern, former chief economist at the World Bank, who has produced the first in-depth paper on the economics of global warming. His predictions that unabated climate change could shrink the global economy by 20% have made industry sit up like nothing before. ...

  • Energy efficiency: Big deals and new ideas

    The economic premise behind energy efficiency –  that it’s cheaper to save a unit of energy than to make one – has caught on in the US.  Energy efficiency spending is up, and our energy use is declining, measured both per capita and per dollar of gross domestic product, according to government ...

  • Hydrogen Storage - Solution for an Intermittent Energy Source

    Storing solar energy through hydrogen versus traditional storage solutions Today, energy is either transmitted directly to the consumer through the grid or stored as backup power for future use via batteries, pumping water, etc. When it comes to solar and wind energy, it becomes extraordinarily difficult to take full advantage of the renewable sources using traditional methods of power ...
