Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS) launched its line of MSZ/MUZ-WR Model 16 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) Heat Pumps. The new heat pumps are part of the M-Series product line, including indoor units, outdoor units, and controller options for residential and light commercial applications.
Acxiom is a database marketing company with locations across the globe, and like many of today’s data center operators, the company faced an increasingly common dilemma: the need to upgrade existing power infrastructure within critical facilities without halting operations.
On Demand People operate spaces based on how they feel, not on energy models. The same science used by engineers when applied to define building problems is not applied to integrate the human factor. The success of this strategy is a miserably low satisfaction rate with the built environment. If society honestly desires energy efficiency from architecture, then it should not be the exclusive goal, but rather the outcome from successfully achieving the desired indoor climate.
On Demand Renewable energy sources are becoming more commonly incorporated by utilities. Unlike conventional generated power sources, renewables are intermittent and variable by their very nature. While utility and grid operators are integrating renewable energy into their systems through power management experiences, municipalities and commercial/industrial applications are turning toward Distributed Energy Resources (DER) to augment or replace utility provided power.
On Demand This webinar will examine the role intelligent switchboards play in meeting the power management challenges of sustainable energy sources such as solar and wind as well as the providing the flexibility to meet potential future requirements.
Intelligent power management systems, which are the nexus of a microgrid, must seamlessly adapt to more dynamic power sources while ensuring uninterrupted power. Moreover, the power infrastructure must be efficient and adept when it comes to accommodating continuously varying load demands.
Engineered Systems magazine’s March 2020 issue showcases how students at one Apple Valley, Minnesota, high school helped the facility achieve LEED Gold; how engineers can design a system to heat a building using a chilled water system, the codes and steps behind adequately design a K-12 safety shelter, and much more.
