The Future of Energy

  • Real Time Energy Management (RTEM)
    • Real-time energy management systems are used to monitor and control energy usage in buildings. They provide up-to-date information on energy consumption and can be used to identify areas of energy efficiency in buildings. They can also be used to optimize energy use in buildings by controlling HVAC systems and lighting systems in real-time. Real-time energy management systems can be used to reduce energy costs and improve energy efficiency. Additionally, they can be used to help identify potential energy savings opportunities and develop strategies for implementing energy efficiency measures.
  • Smart Building Technology
    • Smart building technology is being used to monitor and control energy usage in buildings. This includes smart thermostats, lighting control systems, occupancy sensors, and automated HVAC systems. These technologies allow for improved energy efficiency and cost savings.
  • Building Automation
    • Building automation systems are being used to automate and control energy usage in buildings. This includes monitoring and controlling lighting and HVAC systems, as well as controlling temperature, humidity, and air flow. This technology can help reduce energy costs and improve energy efficiency.
  • Power Generation (Solar, Wind, etc.)
    • Power generation from renewable sources refers to the production of electricity from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal, and hydropower. These sources are considered renewable because they are constantly replenished and can be used to generate electricity without significantly depleting natural resources. Renewable energy sources can be used to generate electricity on a large scale, as well as on a smaller scale for individual homes and businesses. Renewable energy is an important component of energy efficiency, as it can reduce the need for fossil fuel-based electricity production, resulting in reduced carbon emissions.
  • The Electrification of the Vehicle Force
    • Refers to the process of transitioning vehicles away from traditional combustion engines and towards electric power. This process is being driven by advances in battery technology, as well as increased availability of electric charging infrastructure. Electrification of the vehicle force can reduce emissions from vehicles, improve air quality, and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, electric vehicles tend to be more fuel-efficient than traditional vehicles, resulting in reduced fuel costs and improved energy efficiency.
  • Bioenergy | Biomass
    • Bioenergy and biomass are renewable energy sources. Bioenergy is produced from organic material such as wood, agricultural waste, and animal waste. Biomass is a form of bioenergy and is produced from organic material such as wood, crop residues, and animal waste. Both bioenergy and biomass can be used to generate electricity and heat, as well as to produce biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel. Bioenergy and biomass are important components of energy efficiency, as they can reduce the need for fossil fuel-based electricity production and help reduce carbon emissions.
  • Hydrogen & Fuel Cells 
    • Hydrogen and fuel cells are highly efficient and offer a clean, efficient, and reliable source of power. They produce electricity without any harmful emissions, such as carbon dioxide or other pollutants. They convert hydrogen into electricity with efficiency rates as high as 60-80%. Hydrogen and fuel cells are versatile and can be used in a variety of applications, such as transportation, stationary power, and portable energy sources. Hydrogen and fuel cells are cost-effective and the overall cost of fuel cell technology is decreasing, making it a more attractive option for many applications. Hydrogen and fuel cells offer a sustainable energy source and can be produced from renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, or hydropower. This makes it a renewable energy technology.
  • CHP | Co-Generation
    • Combined heat and power (CHP) co-generation is an energy efficiency technology that combines the generation of electricity and the production of useful thermal energy from a single fuel source. This can be achieved through the use of an engine or turbine, which produces both electrical and thermal energy from the combustion of fuel. The thermal energy is typically used in the form of hot water or steam for industrial or commercial processes, while the electrical energy is used to power the facility. CHP co-generation is an efficient energy technology, as it can reduce a facility’s fuel costs and emissions by up to 50%.
  • Energy/Battery Storage
    • Energy storage technologies such as battery banks and fuel cells are being used to store energy generated from renewable sources. This energy can then be used to power homes and businesses when demand is high, reducing energy costs and improving energy efficiency.
  • Smart Grids | Microgrids | Greening the Grid
    • Utilities are making improvements to its power grids to make them more resilient, reliable, and efficient. This includes the implementation of new technologies such as advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), distributed energy resources (DERs), microgrids, and utility-scale energy storage. AMI allows utilities to monitor and control power usage in real-time, while DERs are small-scale energy sources such as rooftop solar, fuel cells, and wind turbines that are connected to the power grid. Microgrids are localized power grids with the ability to disconnect from the main grid for self-sufficient energy production, and energy storage systems provide backup power in case of an outage. These technologies are helping to make the power grid more reliable and resilient, while also reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency.
    • Green technologies are helping to make the grid more reliable by providing clean, renewable sources of energy. Solar and wind energy, for example, provide clean, renewable sources of power that can help reduce emissions and support grid reliability. Additionally, energy storage systems such as batteries can store and provide energy during peak demand periods, helping to reduce strain on the grid and improve reliability. Finally, microgrids provide localized sources of power that can disconnect from the main grid during power outages, helping to ensure continued power supply in times of emergency.
  • Connected Communities – Multi-Building Energy Optimization
    • Connected communities and multi-building energy consumption refer to the concept of using smart meters and other technology to allow utilities to monitor and control the energy consumption of multiple buildings. This technology allows utilities to optimize energy consumption across multiple buildings, as well as identify areas of inefficient energy usage. In addition, this technology allows utilities to detect potential issues with the power grid and take corrective measures in a timely manner. By using this technology, utilities can ensure that energy is being used efficiently and that the power grid is reliable and resilient.
