Shared Resources and Community Energy Storage

Shared Resources and Community Energy Storage

In today’s sharing economy, the concept of communal energy resources, collective energy purchasing, and community microgrids, the emergence of community energy storage (CES) is only logical. I learned recently that the concept involves the modular use of batteries at the neighborhood level to help integrate distributed energy resources and manage

Energy Management Systems

To exemplify the evolving nature of energy management systems, Greg Turner, vice president for Honeywell Business Solutions, recalls a recent conversation in which a hospital facilities manager spoke of how he’d have to come up with budget figures once a year that would either be accepted or rejected.

“Now I get calls almost
