    QUICK NEWS, August 6: WIND AND SOLAR BEAT HYDRO AS NEW ENERGY; WIND ENDORSES EPA EMISSIONS CUT PLAN; SMART WIRELESS BUILDING CONTROL TO BOOM

    WIND AND SOLAR BEAT HYDRO AS NEW ENERGY Solar And Wind Power Poised To Overtake Hydropower As Largest Source Of U.S. Renewable Electricity Generation: EIA

    Maria Galluci, August 1, 2014 International Business Times

    "Hydropower, long the main source of U.S. renewable energy supplies, is about to cede its throne to solar, wind, geothermal and biomass power for the first year in history, federal projections show…April marked the eighth consecutive month that total monthly ‘nonhydro’ renewable power generation topped that of hydropower generation…[A] decade ago, U.S. hydropower accounted for three times as much generation as nonhydro sources…Wind and solar power in particular are driving the shift, fueled by state mandates [and federal tax credits]…Declining hardware and financing costs have made it cheaper and easier to adopt renewables…At the same time, hydropower is on the decline in arid states like California, where a crippling three-year drought is shrinking reservoirs and straining water supplies…” click here for more

    WIND ENDORSES EPA EMISSIONS CUT PLAN AWEA backs Clean Power Plan

    30 July 2014 (ReNews)

    “The proposed federal regulations on carbon pollution from existing electric power plants under the Clean Power Plan can be an economic boon to wind-rich states if they meet them by developing more wind energy, according to the American Wind Energy Association…[Because] electricity generated from a wind farm in one location allows a utility to reduce generation from fossil fuels and therefore carbon output in another…EPA rightfully follows the lead of dozens of states, many leading power plant owners, and various regions of our country that have already embraced the carbon reduction, economic development, and job creation opportunities of renewable energy…[A] recent study by PJM, the regional grid operator for 13 Mid-Atlantic and Midwestern states and the District of Columbia, found wind energy could power 30% of its power grid ‘while reducing wholesale prices by billions of dollars annually’…” click here for more

    SMART WIRELESS BUILDING CONTROL TO BOOM Wireless Control Systems for Smart Buildings; Proprietary Wireless RF, ZigBee, EnOcean, Wi-Fi, Z-Wave, Bluetooth, and Other Wireless Protocols for HVAC, Lighting, Fire & Life Safety, and Security & Access Control Systems

    3Q 2014 (Navigant Research)

    “While building automation and controls have been used for decades, wireless is becoming the catalyst for enabling more granular and immediate control over building systems. Wireless controls offer economic benefits due to the savings in labor costs for installation and maintenance compared with wired systems…Wi-Fi technology has enabled users who found traditional networking too costly or complicated to quickly connect existing devices. Yet…building owners and managers remain skeptical about reliability and security. Navigant Research forecasts that global revenue from wireless nodes for building controls will grow from $84.8 million in 2013 to $434.0 million in 2023…” click here for more
