Energy Awareness

Are you aware of how much energy you are using? The need for a real-time energy meter is very critical, because by the time you get the bill from 30-45 days ago, you can change anything to save money.

This is critical in large facilities.

Energy Dashboard

What's your favorite energy dashboard?

What are the features you need?

I like one that includes a lot of data and analysis with nice graphs and graphics like Noveda's EnergyFlow.

Award


Noveda Wins "Best of Show" Award
June 16, 2009 - The New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC) recognized Noveda Techologies with a “Best of Show” Award at the Sustainable Business and Technology Seminar and Trade Show in June. Noveda was one of 200 companies represented at the event hosted jointly by the NJTC and the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission. Noveda was selected for the award by a panel of NJTC professional members.

The New Jersey Technology Council provides business support, networking opportunities, information, advocacy and recognition of technology companies and their leaders. Founded in 1996, NJTC's more than 1,200 member companies work together to support their own enterprises while advancing New Jersey's status as a leading technology center in the United States.

Liberty Science Center

Liberty Science Center

In April 2008 The Liberty Science Center, a 295,000 square foot educational science center for the general public, installed Noveda Technologies SunFlow Monitor™ and EnergyFlow Monitor™ to optimize the facility's newly installed solar photo voltaic system.

SunFlow Monitor™ records and displays in real-time all electrical energy coming into the building from the grid, electrical energy going out from the building to the grid, electrical energy consumed by the building, and electrical energy produced by the solar photo-voltaic system.

After the first night in use, SunFlow Monitor™ data showed that the facility was consuming three times more energy during the night than originally estimated. Between the hours of 10:00 pm and 6:00 am The Liberty Science Center was consuming unnecessary electricity to run the air conditioning, lighting and other energy intensive systems of the building.

Because of the instant feedback, facility operations staff at Liberty Science Center discovered that the air handling units were running in occupied mode during the night, bringing hot, humid air into the building. By readjusting the night settings, daily electrical consumption was reduced by approximately 11.5%. It was estimated that this problem was occurring for the past year, costing an average of $5,800 per month or nearly $70,000 per year! In terms of the environmental impact, the energy savings resulted in daily reductions of 1.24 metric tons of CO2 greenhouse gases. Noveda's technology offered a three month payback on their investment.


Overall, installation of the SunFlow Monitor™ resulted in an immediate daily electrical savings of 11.6% and a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

The first eco-friendly billboard will be constructed in Times Square

A Times Square billboard goes green
The first eco-friendly billboard will be constructed in Times Square, entirely powered by wind and solar power.
-- Consulting-Specifying Engineer, 11/19/2008
According to the New York Times, the first eco-friendly billboard will be constructed in Times Square, entirely powered by wind and solar power. The $3 million Ricoh Americas billboard will be fitted with 16 wind turbines and 64 solar panels. The 126 x 47 ft billboard on the Great White Way, weighs 35,000 lbs, rests 55 ft off the ground, and wraps around the northwest corner of Seventh Avenue and 42nd St. The billboard will generate its own electricity, which is enough to power six homes for a year, and the self-generated power will save as much as $12,000 to $15,000 per month in utility costs and prevent 18 tons of carbon from being released into the air. Lighted by 16, 300-watt floodlights, the billboard will feature a custom-printed opaque vinyl sheeting that bears the Ricoh logo.

The cylindrical Ricoh drum turbines have no sharp blades and will provide 90% of the sign’s power. The rest of the sign’s power will come from the solar panels, which feed electricity to eight collection batteries up in the sign. Unlike the tall propellers in a typical wind farm, the cylindrical Ricoh drum turbines have no sharp blades. Tourists, residents, and people passing by will be able to see the 26 blades spinning in the sign’s 16 turbines, piled in four 45-ft. tall vertical stacks. Operating at an average speed of 10 miles an hour, the turbines will generate 22 kW.

The only projected problem with the solar and wind powered billboard is what happens to the sign when there is no sun and no wind. Ricoh claims that the drums are so perfectly balanced, that their rotors could be turned by the wind from a single household electric fan. “The turbines would most likely generate enough power to keep the sign lighted even after four days without wind or sun. But the company is prepared for the sign to go dark” said Ron Potesky, a senior marketing vice president for Ricoh Americas Corp. Unlike stalklike propeller turbines, which require unidirectional, or “clean”, wind to function, Ricoh’s revolving drums use turbulent, multidirectional winds. The turbines provide usable power from winds as weak as 5 mph and rotate safely in winds up to 100 mph.
