Guest Commentary: Smarter Schools

Students aren’t the only ones hitting the books on college campuses nationwide. In fact, colleges and universities are turning to new resources to tackle a steep learning curve when it comes to energy efficiency. With the various costs associated with maintaining facilities, colleges and universities must rethink energy practices to

Metering Enhances Efficiency

Metering Enhances Efficiency

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.

Smarter Buildings

Most commercial, industrial, and retail buildings today use some level of intelligent system, most commonly in lighting, HVAC, or security. Because the technology is advancing so rapidly, it’s now possible to collect more data and use it to accomplish many more tasks.

Managing Multiple Microgrids

Managing Multiple Microgrids

Last week I traveled to Chicago where, as a participant in Siemens’ US Innovation Day, I had an opportunity to explore a number of exciting technology advancements. One of the innovations that I found interesting was the concept of aggregated microgrids managed by a utility.

At the event, Siemens announced that

Biogas and Cogeneration

Biogas and Cogeneration

Biogas has been quietly serving as a fuel for combined heat and power (a.k.a. cogeneration) plants and as a revenue generator for waste treatment facilities, landfills, and dairies for some time, mainly in Europe. But it is becoming more popular here in the US as municipalities and utilities seek out
