Smart grid workforce trends - Intelligent Utility

Smart grid workforce trends - Intelligent Utility | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Just as Congressional focus returns to job creation, a KEMA report released recently for the GridWise Alliance argues that smart grid "presents an opportunity for the United States to develop a strong native industry around development, deployment, maintenance and servicing smart grid infrastructure and technology."

 

But it won't be a slam-dunk, by any means.

 

The KEMA report "The U.S. Smart Grid Revolution: Smart Grid Workforce Trends 2011" also said that "(p)reparing a new workforce that can make smart grid work well from the moment it is deployed will be the electric industry's central challenge in the next decade."

Why Flexible Displays May Transform the Customer Experience

Why Flexible Displays May Transform the Customer Experience | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Samsung has already announced plans to release a flexible phone sometime in 2012, with tablets and other devices to follow. All together this means that customers could potentially be reached interactively at any point in their daily lives. While businesses can already engage their customers via social media, the engagement is limited and controlled largely by the customer, who decides when and where to check Facebook or Twitter.

mmdm arquitectes

mmdm arquitectes | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
Obsession for the proper adaptation of the project with the topography+the use of durable materials and clear geometries=a simple and useful architecture.

mmdm arquitectes is an architecture office founded in 2003 by Frans Masana and Joan Dalmases, based on previous collaborations.

The projects that come out of the office have points in common that are the main features of our architecture. On one side, the proper adaptation with the topography to avoid great earthworks and, consequently, an excessive environmental impact. On the other side, the use of durable and not expensive materials that influence both the constructive solutions and the same image of the buildings that we project. Finally, the use of clear geometries in the design of the floor plan and of the volume. The result of this way of projecting is a simple and useful architecture.
