What Will Energy and Sustainability Mean Now?
Rob McAtee, Director of Energy and Sustainability Services at Mason & Hanger. In the face of a new administration following the U.S. Presidential election, I’ve seen letters and posts from many ...
Achieving LEED Platinum at the Innovation Center
This project is a shining example of how eco-diplomacy is also cost effective design. The $20.9 million Innovation Center renovation was completed on budget while also meeting an aggressive 14-month ...
Saving Water Saves Energy (and Vice-Versa)
Despite the recent, much-needed rains in the western part of our country, many areas have yet to fully recover from historic multi-year droughts. Partly as a result of these droughts, and also ...
Microgrids Boost Renewable Energy Roll-Out
It seems every journal I open gives at least a mention to microgrids. Whether in the context of renewable energy, resiliency, or infrastructure, microgrids are hailed as being the solution to our ...
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in Data Centers
Since we’re in the digital mood today, here’s a less-than-140-character introduction to computational fluid dynamics (CFD): CFD takes a very complex fluid dynamics problem and breaks it up into tiny ...
Data Center Energy Consumption
The digital revolution is here, and data is taking over. Human existence is being condensed, chronicled, and calculated, one bit at a time, in our servers and tapes. From several perspectives this is ...
The Decreasing Cost of Solar Photovoltaic Systems
It's a common belief in some corners that photovoltaic (PV) systems are "incredibly expensive" and "have a payback of more than 25 years." While in many regions of the country, the cost of power ...
The Rise of Direct Current
Just about every discussion of alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) starts with the great debate between Thomas Edison (advocating for DC), and Nikola Tesla, who was ultimately successful ...
Three Questions You Might Have About Building Sciences
What is computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling? Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling uses numerical methods to model almost any phenomena related to fluid flow and heat and mass transfer. ...
Managing Data Center Energy Use thru Virtualization
It is no secret that data centers consume lots of energy, both for computer processing loads and the HVAC energy to cool their processors. Data center virtualization focuses on reducing data center ...
