The Effect of COVID-19 Work from Home Policies on Building Energy Profiles

covid-19

The rapid spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is upending our economies and reshaping the way we live our lives. In order to show the impact of the new Work From Home policy on building energy profiles and patterns, David Energy reviewed the electric demand changes of a commercial building in Manhattan connected to Mycor. 

The Latest Evolution of Distributed Energy Resources — Opportunity for Business Within PJM

PJM

Distributed energy resources have evolved. No longer merely rooftop solar panels or backup generators, they are imbued with software intelligence and new capabilities. Get the new paper from Cummins and NRG that focuses on opportunities available to businesses and institutions within the PJM Interconnection, one of the world’s largest organized wholesale markets, serving 65 million people in a broad swath of the United States.

The Case for Waste to Energy: Utilizing Low-Btu Reciprocating Gas Engine Generators

waste to energy

With the development of large reciprocating generator sets that can run reliably on alternative fuels such as low-Btu (i.e. dilute) methane, landfills, waste treatment plants, coal mining facilities and other sources of waste fuel now have a way to harness these “free” energy sources. Get the new paper that outlines the process for determining waste-to-energy site suitability, reviews the maintenance issues and technology answers related to contaminants often found in methane, and cites several working waste-to energy installations as examples of installed waste-to-energy applications. 

Without Digital There Will be No Energy Transition

energy transition

By now, most of us have settled into the idea of an energy transition. We all know that we need to move away from fossil fuels and towards a sustainable energy future. And that part of this energy transition process will be working out how to navigate our way through the changes to rebuild our current global energy systems. Get the full report from Advisian, as the company explores digitization as the key to a successful transition.

Download this case study to lean how the City of Berkeley designed a replicable, clean energy microgrid community in a dense urban area that contributes to both safety and sustainability.

Variable Speed Diesel

Off-grid system operators are increasingly turning to wind and solar generation to lower their diesel fuel consumption. Unfortunately, they quickly hit a technical barrier, with the operability of conventional diesel generation constraining the possible renewable energy penetration.
