A New Team of Horses

Often, two technologies emerge more or less simultaneously, and then reinforce each other as mutually compatible technologies. In doing so, they can create a kind of synergy together and make one another more efficient, more cost-effective, more profitable, and more useful—like a pair of horses working together to pull a

Irrigation IQ

Irrigation IQ

The topic of irrigation begins with the question: Why are we irrigating? According to Brent Mecham, industry development director for the Irrigation Association, the answer is obvious: to keep
plants healthy.

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.

Solar Recycling

Dubbed the “sunrush,” the growth in solar energy use over the past 25 years has been exponential. In addition to increasing global capacity from 100 MW to over 300 GW in that time, costs in 2017 were an impressive 86% lower than in 2009.

One emerging concern, however, results from the

Pumps Operations in the Building Envelope

Pumps Operations in the Building Envelope

Water flows downhill. Nothing could be more simple. Getting water to the top floor of an urban skyscraper is a bit more difficult. Mere gravity flow or even accumulated static pressure head aren’t sufficient to accomplish this task. Pumps are obviously needed. But what kinds of pumps are used in

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
