Energy Efficiency Return on Investment Higher than for Alternative Fuel

Although there has been a big focus on natural gas lately, new studies are shifting a focus to energy efficiency and building automation to help meet the energy demands of the future.

Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA) released study results on Thursday at the annual meeting in Houston, stating that of all available energy conservation and alternative energy means, energy efficiency is the most effective way to remedy the balance between the supply and demand for low cost, earth-friendly energy.

Other options considered and currently in place include carbon capture and storage, which stores carbon waste underground, but supporters of oil drilling believe it is less damaging to drill for oil than it is to store waste beneath the earth’s surface.

Promoting energy efficiency offers consumers and the planet a higher return on investment in regards not only to energy costs, but to the impact of energy consumption on the environment.

While some consumers view efficiency as a sacrifice of comforts and habits, the reality is that energy efficiency at its best provides consumers with the things they want at an affordable price, and with improved energy use for lower energy bills.

Consumers must see energy efficiency as a positive change rather than an inconvenience on any level, and in order for a reform in efficiency, the upfront costs of converting need to be reasonable.  A number of household appliances made today use only 25% of the energy its predecessors consumed 25 to 35 years ago.

Energy Efficiency Bill “HomeStar” to be Passed by Congress

Congress is soon passing HomeStar, a program of green-energy and energy efficiency incentives for homeowners investing in making their home more energy-efficient.

Similar to a Cash for Clunkers program, rebates for energy-efficient appliances and retrofits for the home are available at the point of purchase.

These rebates would be marketed by a number of vendors, from independent building materials dealers to large home improvement chains, to service providers and installers.

Vendors can provide the rebate to the customers and submit paperwork to the federal government for reimbursement. Homeowners are eligible to recieve the following benefits through the HomeStar program:

•Instant rebates for energy-saving investments

•50% rebates for the cost of upgrades up to $1500

•Rebates up to $3000 for homeowners who retrofit their entire home

Saving families hundreds of dollars on utility bills and creating a less fossil fuel-dependent economy, this energy efficieny program will also boost jobs, creating work for contractors, construction workers and other businesses.

In order to be eligible, contractors would have to be certified by the state in order to install energy-efficient upgrades.  After work is completed, independent quality assurance representatives would audit the work to be sure installations were performed correctly so that the consumer saves in energy bills.

Currently the unemployment rate in the construction industry is around 25%, with plenty of supply in those who can perform construction jobs, this HomeStar program may boost economic recovery after the increase in demand for energy efficiency and those filling the roles to provide installations.

In addition, the majority of energy-efficient insulation products and energy-efficient windows are manufactured exclusively in the United States.  There are also a number of service providers in the U.S. to help not only homeowners, but managers of large buildings to automate the use of their energy.

Building automation systems help control and maintain energy use different areas of a building.  From lighting to HVAC to elevator control, building automation uses intelligent computerized controls that monitor all levels of energy consumption in a building.

Advanced Control Corporation is the provoder of a number of energy-efficient, environmentally-sound solutions for building automationenergy managementoptimizing energy performance, building access control, and CCTV Solutions.

Our continuing work and experience in providing energy efficiency, building automation solutions and security automation solutions give us the skill set necessary to produce optimal results every time for our clientele.

Energy Efficient Appliances & ‘Cash For Clunkers’ Incentives Provide Rebates Consumers

With a desire to promote recycling, waste reduction, water conservation and energy efficiency, Florida state officials are offering a rebate program for energy-efficient appliances. Offering a $75 incentive, this program is in place make sure that the buyers of new, energy efficient products are also retiring their less efficient electronics the new products are to replace.

“Cash for Clunkers” is a term that was popular with vehicles last year, but this year they’re applying to the appliances.  The federal stimulus program funds this project, which rebates consumers with 20% discounts on a number of Energy Star appliances.

These rebates will be offered by Florida retailers April 16-25, and are in place to make sure old appliances are properly disposed of.  Many appliances today are many times over more energy efficient than their predecessors from 5 to 15 years ago.

Consumers simply need a store receipt or a voucher from a certified landfill or disposal facility to receive the bonus. While this $300 million funding program is in place in a number of other states, Florida’s will commence during 2010’s Earth Day week.

Building Automation and Energy Efficiency Measures Drastically Reduce Energy Expenses

With a large role in the grand scheme of energy conservation, building automation plays a large role in the big picture of energy efficiency and energy conservation.   Building automation not only extends the life of a building, but improves convenience, comfort and the building’s overall energy efficiency levels. 

IT programs and different technologies for building management control a variety of components and elements within a building, helping to reduce wasted energy usage and increase the energy efficiency of a building. 

In the past, security and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) were high on the priority list for energy conservation. More recently, new means of energy conservation of a building include elevator technology which tracks patterns and usage of elevators, and elevators can be assigned specific routines or destinations according to the routines of the building’s tenants and the current patterns of elevator usage.

Elevators are equipped with detection sensors, making them “aware” of when they need to be active or when they can go to “sleep” — into an idle state of decreased energy consumption.

These more modern systems provide increased function in newer construction projects, and also improve the life span of both new and existing buildings by maximizing energy efficiency and applying the same elevator occupancy patterns to other systems of the building such as lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

Building Automation Creates Sustainability Despite Economic Pressures

Necessity being the mother of invention and innovation, pressing economic times forge a number of revolutions in technology and the overall way we conduct our lives and business.  In a need and desire to create sustainability and simplicity, energy consumption tends to be a strong focus for financial savings and long-term return on investments.

By investing in energy-efficient components, companies will save money in the long and short term.  Commercial buildings account for roughly 20% of energy consumption in developed countries.  In order to balance out the consumption, building automation is a necessity for building energy management staff in order to control energy waste and maximize energy efficiency.

Although building automation is a slow-growing trend, it is a market that will be facing a global 3% growth over the next five years, and according to research conducted by ABI Research, it is estimated that the market value will reach over $36 billion by 2015. 

Despite a slowing economy, the government is providing a number of financial incentives and putting rules and regulations into place for energy efficiency and building automation projects.

Building automation systems control and maintain energy use in each area of a building.  From lighting to HVAC to elevator control, building automation uses intelligent computerized controls that monitor all levels of energy consumption in a building.
