Skylights, whether of the rectangular or tubular selection, offer several important advantages. They send out natural illumination, they can serve as a vent to cool down a room, and they bring in warmth to warm up a space. However choosing an energy efficient skylights option that's created for a specific climate and put up properly will mostly identify the real perks accomplished. Energy efficient lighting help for your company, including support on energy-saving LED lighting and T5 fluorescent lighting.Visit our site *******www.bristolite****/sp/Interfaces/quasar-low.aspx for more information on Energy Efficient Skylights
Boiler room overhaul cuts fuel and energy usage for Graystone Corp.
When George T. Wilkinson Inc. replaced Graystone Corporation’s existing atmospheric boilers with AERCO condensing boilers, not only were boiler room operating costs significantly reduced, but Graystone received a substantial rebate from NStar to assist with project costs. From 2008 to 2009 Graystone saved 30 percent in fuel costs –– including therm reduction as well as heating degree days. Graystone Buildings Manager Bob Snow explained this was Graystone’s first time working with Wilkinson. Snow invited Geoff Wilkinson and Geoff Wilkinson, Jr. onsite and was very impressed with what they had to say. The Wilkinson Energy Efficiency Engineers® identified the best equipment for Graystone’s unique needs, which resulted in substantially reducing fuel costs and energy usage. Located in Cambridge, Mass., Graystone installed its original boilers during the 1970s. One of the downsides of operating atmospheric gas boilers is the inability to properly control fuel and air. Because of their significant intake of O2, these boilers require excessive use of fuel to counteract the intake –– without enough fuel the boiler is at risk to “blow out.” The nine inefficient, gas-fired Hydrotherm atmospheric boilers were replaced with two natural gas-fired AERCO Modulex 1060 condensing boilers. Constructed with cast aluminum heat exchangers, the units are able to condense without any thermal shock. The MLX-1060 combines the power of seven thermal modules, each operating with greater than 3:1 turndown to deliver a 23:1 range of operations. From the low-fire input of a single module (45,500 BTU per hour) to the unit’s full fire capacity (1,060,000 BTU per hour), the boiler matches the load precisely, without a cycling or temperature surplus by always employing as many modules as possible –– each firing at the lowest possible firing rate. Less energy is required for the group of thermal modules, each firing at part-load to heat a building. This results in greater fuel savings compared to a module requiring each thermal module to reach full 151,500 BTU per hour capacity before the next module goes online. The independent operation of two or more thermal modules increases each boiler’s turndown range while also increasing its overall reliability. Because thermal efficiency increases as firing rates drop, the simultaneous low-fire operation of multiple modules ensures Modulex boilers continuously maximize operating efficiency. “They were very, very good. Very thorough and professional. All of the service technicians were very knowledgeable,” said Snow. “The heat in the building has never been better,” he said.

Washington, June 14, 2013 /3BL Media/Corporate Social Responsibility – Public and private sector leaders exchanged ideas yesterday to address the importance of energy efficiency in a changing economy at the 24th annual Energy Efficiency Forum, co-hosted by Johnson Controls and the United States Energy Association, held in Washington, D.C.
Energy experts, legislators and business leaders outlined the importance of keeping energy efficiency at the forefront of national research and policy making to make communities and the world more secure, resilient and sustainable.
Representatives discuss new bipartisan energy efficiency efforts
U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), who sit on the Energy and Commerce Committee, discussed forthcoming bipartisan energy efficiency efforts at the forum. The new bipartisan efforts will focus on encouraging more energy efficiency in government and businesses to save money, create local jobs and sustain energy resources.
Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chair delivers afternoon keynote
Keynote speaker Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) addressed the more than 300 forum attendees.
“Energy efficiency is a good investment – it saves households and business owners money, creates jobs and moves our country toward a more competitive, low-carbon economy,” Wyden said. “But passing an energy efficiency bill through Congress will take more than common sense and bipartisan support. It’s going to take the businesses, efficiency advocates, consumers and government officials who are backing this issue to send a message that now is the time to bring an efficiency bill to a vote.”
Pulitzer Prize winning author focuses on energy efficiency
Daniel Yergin provided insight on his recent book, The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World. Yergin is one of America’s most influential energy experts, vice chairman of IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates and a Pulitzer Prize winning author.
“Energy efficiency is one of our nation’s greatest energy resources. It is also embedded throughout our economy. Capturing it requires technology, mindset, commitment, and plain old street smarts. But the payback can be huge,” said Yergin. “The reason I focused on energy efficiency at the conclusion of The Quest is because of its strategic importance to our country’s energy future.”
New energy efficiency research released by Johnson Controls President
Dave Myers, president, Johnson Controls, Building Efficiency, shared highlights of the seventh annual Energy Efficiency Indicator Survey, which gauges the perceptions of more than 3,000 building owners and operators around the world on issues related to energy management practices, energy efficiency and renewable energy investment plans, clean technology integration and project financing approaches.
This year’s survey indicated public goals and private financing continue to push global momentum for energy efficiency. In fact, energy efficiency interest increased 116 percent globally since 2010, with those who set goals making the greatest strides in reducing energy use.
“We need public officials and private investors to work together to reduce the market’s uncertainty and capture momentum toward a more energy efficient global economy,” said Myers.
The Energy Efficiency Indicator survey is led by Johnson Controls’ Institute for Building Efficiency in partnership with the International Facility Management Association and the Urban Land Institute.
