    QUICK NEWS, March 10: THE DISRUPTIVE POTENTIAL OF BATTERY STORAGE; THE FIGHT FOR NEW ENERGY IN NEW YORK; EFFICIENCY OPPORTUNITY IN HOTELS TO DOUBLE BY 2020

    THE DISRUPTIVE POTENTIAL OF BATTERY STORAGE Batteries May Vie With U.S. Oil Boom as Energy Changer

    Bradley Olson and Mark Chediak, March 5, 2014 (Bloomberg News)

    “The rapid development of rooftop solar and battery storage technology could be as transformative to the economy and modern life as the U.S. oil and gas boom, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said…Batteries allow customers with solar panels to store energy during the day and then tap the excess overnight when the sun goes down. The widespread use of electric vehicles could reshape the development of cities, and applying the same battery storage technology to transform the U.S. energy system has [‘huge potential’]…Battery storage advances could threaten the 100-year-old monopoly utility business model that books about $360 billion in annual power sales. An increasing number of customers are reducing their dependence on the grid, turning to solar panels and battery storage as a way to reduce their bills…” click here for more

    THE FIGHT FOR NEW ENERGY IN NEW YORK Green-energy activists target Cuomo energy plan

    Mark Harrington, March 3, 2014 (Long Island Newsday)

    “Green-energy advocates…[say New York State's recently released energy plan] draft proposal falls far short of what's needed to help stem a climate crisis…Advocates for wind and solar power, geothermal heating systems and electric cars -- and even a white-roof advocate -- joined with opponents of natural gas hydrofracking in calling on Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to do significantly more to turn the state away from dependence on fossil fuels…The draft state energy plan refers often to the need for more clean-energy sources, and envisions public-private partnerships to…cut emissions by 80 percent by 2050…[But New Energy advocates] said goals need to be more aggressive…” click here for more

    EFFICIENCY OPPORTUNITY IN HOTELS TO DOUBLE BY 2020 Energy Management in the Hospitality Industry; Hardware, Software, and Services for Energy Management Systems for Hotel Guest Rooms and Common Areas: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

    1Q 2014 (Navigant Research)

    “…The real vendor opportunity and associated market growth for hotel guest room energy management systems (GR-EMSs) lies in…networked systems with data aggregation, analysis, and reporting…via a software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based service and consulting offering, as well as through follow-on operational services such as property-wide monitoring and remote energy management. Vendors will increasingly be taking a holistic view of a hotel’s entire energy ecosystem: energy acquisition and supply management, energy usage, efficiency tuning, comparative benchmarking and trends analysis, system improvement recommendations, periodic recommissioning, and so on. Navigant Research forecasts that the global market for GR-EMSs and enterprise-level energy management software in the hospitality sector will reach $967.9 million in 2020, up from $445.5 million in 2012…” click here for more
