Energy consumption is the consumption of energy or power.

District Heating and Cooling Systems

District Heating and Cooling Systems

Originating in the 19th century, district heating and cooling (DHC) systems today are taking advantage of new technologies to provide the energy efficiency and thermal flexibility needed in 21st century applications.

A Wave of Innovation

A Wave of Innovation

Wastewater treatment plants are impacted by the same infrastructure issues as highways, bridges, and municipal water systems. As population increases and permitting requirements are strengthened, there is little room to upgrade and expand. Costs are also prohibitive. New technologies like membrane bioreactors (MBR), however, can fit in the footprint of

How Thermal Energy Storage Saves on Peak Power Usage

How Thermal Energy Storage Saves on Peak Power Usage

For more than 25 years, retailer JCPenney has relied on ice-based energy storage from CALMAC to save hundreds of thousands of dollars in energy costs. In 2015 alone, the retailer’s headquarters in Plano, TX, reduced its annual energy bill by more than $100,000.

Destination: Decarbonization

Destination: Decarbonization

According to scientific consensus, the future of climate stabilization depends upon the decarbonization of energy systems and the reduction of global greenhouse-gas emissions. The electrification of buildings, power industry researchers explain, is an important step on the path to decarbonization.

A European study conducted by the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project indicates

The Automation Advantage

The Automation Advantage

New technology doesn’t come cheap. But what if that new tech could help utilities better control and monitor the flow of drinking water through their water delivery systems? What if that technology could help utilities discover potential leaks or isolate those pumps and valves that are starting to gradually fail

Identifying Metering  Tools to Prevent Energy Loss

Identifying Metering Tools to Prevent Energy Loss

Researchers at Washington State University had discovered occupants in high-efficiency buildings were so frustrated with unresponsive motion sensors and temperature controls, they had found unconventional solutions to thwart the energy efficiency tools, Smithsonian Magazine reported in late November 2017.
