  • Worldwide energy savings, no magic required

    Is all this effort to save energy worth it? Consider this. Had we neglected energy efficiency from 1980 to 2010, worldwide energy use would be 35 percent higher. What does this mean? Look at the amount of energy used in the world’s two largest economies – the United States and China. That’s about how much energy the world saved. This comes from ...

  • Variable frequency drive energy saving on air compressors

    When we are looking for an innovative way to make its rotary-screw compressors more energy efficient and operator-friendly, they turned to Gozuk, Low-Voltage VFDs. In addition to supplying VFDs to control the speed and torque of the AF-series compressors, the Gozuk project team designed software to control the system pressure, air delivery, oil temperature and duty cycle directly from the VFD. ...

  • Energy Security

    Renewable & Clean Energy Solutions to Secure Energy Independence from Foreign Oil. FOREIGN OIL: As imports grow and world prices rise, the amount of money we send to foreign nations every year is soaring. At current oil prices, we will send $700 billion dollars out of the country this year alone — that’s four times the annual cost of the ...

  • Why enterprise energy management?

    I pose the above question to start a discussion on the why’s and how’s of an enterprise energy management strategy. With the recent unrest in the Middle East and northern Africa combined with the increasing energy demand from China and India, the price of oil is expected to continue to rise for the foreseeable future. In fact, trends in energy pricing indicate utility companies are ...

  • 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 ...

  • Waste to Energy Analysis

    The manufacturing of SRF in a single pass is not a new concept. However, with the environmental efficacy of alternative fuel production under seemingly increasing scrutiny, a one-step process is of growing importance, believes Peter Streinik, Head of Business Unit Waste at UNTHA. There can be no disputing that alternative fuel production is being increasingly acknowledged as a valuable part of ...

  • Energy efficiency and calling in the dogs

    By Elisa Wood January 26, 2011   My dogs came in immediately when I called them tonight. The cookies I’ve recently begun serving up upon their return seem be making an impression.  At last they see a reason to leave behind all the fun things to chase in the woods.   Yes, I’ve been slow to understand – or at least enact – the basic ...

  • Tracking clean energy progress

    Each year, the IEA’s Tracking Clean Energy Progress (TCEP) report examines developments across a range of clean energy sectors and technologies. The TCEP uses benchmarks for 2025 as modelled in Energy Technology Perspectives 2017, as well as the milestones identified in the IEA Technology Roadmaps. Measuring against these benchmarks provides an assessment of whether technologies, energy ...

  • Energy Efficiency prospects: What to watch

    Events unfolding in two US Northeast states – New York and Massachusetts – signal increased business opportunity for energy efficiency companies, green architects, lighting contractors, smart grid innovators and others in the business of saving energy. First, the energy efficiency world should keep an eye on debate over the possible shutdown of the Indian Point nuclear power plant in ...

  • Geothermal Energy... Power from the Depths

    The Earth's crust is a bountiful source of energy—and fossil fuels are only part of the story. Heat or thermal energy is by far the more abundant resource. To put it in perspective, the thermal energy in the uppermost six miles of the Earth's crust amounts to 50,000 times the energy of all oil and gas resources in the world! The word 'geothermal' literally means 'Earth' plus 'heat.' ...

  • Energy Efficiency, Pollution Prevention, and the Bottom Line

    Introduction For many years, efforts to promote energy efficiency and pollution prevention (P2) traveled on parallel paths. Most energy efficiency advocates considered only the energy savings aspects of their projects and most proponents of P2 did not include energy on their list of sources of pollution. More recently, the two groups promoting energy efficiency and P2 have begun to realize the ...

  • Are the number crunchers forgetting about energy efficiency?

    What is good news for the environment is often bad news for the economy. Or least that’s the conventional wisdom. The thinking is bolstered by government findings that industrial activity and Gross Domestic Product will drop if the nation adopts a leading proposal before Congress to reduce greenhouse gases. But the number crunchers may be forgetting an important input: Energy efficiency. So says ...

  • The Inevitability of Change and Resistance to Energy Efficient Lighting

    Change is inevitable. It is one of the only constants in life, and as the saying goes, nothing ever stays the same. Despite the truth behind this, most societies and cultures have historically demonstrated a resistance to change. Perhaps nowhere is this currently more evident than in global efforts to promote a change to energy efficiency awareness and the new technologies intended to speed the ...
