Energy Efficient HVAC Systems Will Surpass $33 Billion in Annual Revenue by ... DailyFinance Thus, HVAC energy consumption in commercial buildings is a key contributor to total global energy consumption.
Bright ideas are essential for any successful business, but is keeping your small business illuminated costing you more than it should? Depending on the type of business, lighting may account for 20% to 50% of the electricity a business consumes, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. Choosing more energy-efficient lighting options can help businesses curb electricity costs.
Power management company Eaton today announced 15 products from its Cooper Lighting division have been recognized by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Committee and will be included in its 2013 Progress Report.
The economy, stupid" was a theme used in the 1992 presidential election, after a year of recession in 1991. Now it is the centerpiece of too many speeches. The popularity arises from simple behavior. We worry about many things when we are financially confident. When we are not, we worry about one thing, the economy. In mature societies, most things fall into the economic realm; how much money do you have? With enough, one can reach for the stars.Why does this matter to designers of energy efficiency programs? The answer has two elements. One addresses the difference between conservation and efficiency while the other is a matter of motives and behavior.
A remodel of a 17,000-net-sq-ft commercial office space in a circa-1929 office in downtown Houston took advantage of both energy modeling for HVAC load analysis and a lighting optimization simulation analysis to determine the impact on yearly energy consumption. The baseline model, which used the existing space design, was modeled with its existing lighting (2x4-ft recessed lay-in return air T-12 light fixtures) that had previously been retrofitted from to 2-lamp T-8 fixtures. The existing lighting demand was 10 kW (input power). This retrofit design was compared to the same space, using dimmable energy-efficient solid-state high-output T-5 high output and LED luminaires with occupancy sensing control and natural daylight from the existing north-facing palladia windows, resulting in a reduced peak power demand of 8.2 kW.
Sensors are a key enabling technology for energy efficient buildings. Output from sensors enables effective demand controlled HVAC and lighting. This enables users to save on utility bills and help in reduction of carbon emissions by efficient energy usage and minimising wastage. The research service offers insights primarily on nine dimensions of sensors for energy efficient buildings and building management.
Energy Efficiency and comfortable environment in buildings are enabled by building automation systems where sensors play a key role. The major aspects are providing lighting and HVAC based on actual demand and occupancy information. Unnecessary usage of devices leads to unwanted usage of electricity which can be curbed using sensing solutions.

After all, why would they pay you to use less energy?
Because regulations now give them financial rewards for meeting energy-efficiency goals. Even though it costs about one-third to one-fourth less to save a kilowatt hour through conservation than it does to build, fuel, and operate a new power plant, utilities resisted conservation programs for years, says Martin Kushler, senior fellow with the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). Instead, they opted to finance new plants over the long term and pass along the costs to all of us as higher rates—until regulators stepped in.
