Tag: save energy

Energy conservation refers to reducing energy consumption through using less of an energy service. Energy conservation differs from efficient energy use, which refers to using less energy for a constant service.[1] For example, driving less is an example of energy conservation. Driving the same amount with a higher mileage vehicle is an example of energy efficiency. Energy conservation and efficiency are both energy reduction techniques.

Preventing Water Loss in Storage Tanks

Preventing Water Loss in Storage Tanks

A 49-year-old water storage tank leaking water eventually led the town of Chapmanville, WV, to replace its 75-year old water distribution system in 2015. Eventually, it learned that the town’s distribution lines were also leaking like sieves. Together, the distribution lines and leaking storage tank were losing more than half

Siemens Highlights Alternative Financial Solutions to Support Infrastructure Modernization Initiatives

Public-private partnerships and value-based procurement enable cities to make improvements and help ensure long-term sustainability.

For cities, implementing intelligent technology and infrastructure upgrades comes down to a question of affordability. But increasing access to private capital investment via public-private partnerships (P3s) and alternative financing models such as performance contracting have allowed

Global Awareness and Grace

In an effort to better understand women’s participation in the water industry and the water supply network, last May Water Efficiency magazine explored the topic by way of an interview with Kirsten deVette of the International Water Association.

We learned that in many parts of the world women bear the primary responsibility for

Considerations for Planning an LED Lighting Retrofit

Considerations for Planning an LED Lighting Retrofit

Lighting can be an easy route to cost and energy savings. Reducing the amount of wattage used correspondingly reduces your utility bill. Maintenance costs can also be decreased with the installation of efficient lighting.

“Retrofits come and go with the cost of energy,” observes Bill O’Connell, technical sales manager for Ledvance

Beyond Connectivity

Beyond Connectivity

Connecting building systems and equipment through the Internet is not a new phenomenon. It is a capability that has been around for years. But, to reap the true benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) concept in commercial buildings, you must go beyond connectivity.

Simple Guidelines for Considering Lighting Retrofits

Simple Guidelines for Considering Lighting Retrofits

There are several simple conditions under which a facility operator should consider doing a lighting retrofit, notes Bob Smith, P.E., Director, Energy Marketing Solutions, Eaton’s Cooper Lighting business. Simple ones to consider include high energy rates for which a lighting retrofit can help reach a faster payback with incentives offered
