A Stanford University research team has invented a way for buildings to dump their heat without the needs for pumps, fans or compressors. This idea, described in a recent issue of Nature, is simple and provocative – radiate the heat back into space. The materials used for this process are still in the prototype stage and in the end would probably not eliminate all of a building’s cooling needs. The idea could be the start of something really cool.  Read More Here.

 

SMUD’s energy-saving guru, Bruce Baccei, discusses ideas for saving energy with your roof-top HVAC units

Add-on Variable Speed Controls for RTUs


DCV, mechanical contractor
In a recent article published at the EnergyCentral website, Bruce Baccei of SMUD’s Energy R&D, discusses a topic that he has devoted years of his professional life to, HVAC efficiency.  In particular Bruce reviews the results of a Sacramento field test on a technology that averaged an energy savings of over 39%.

The addition of variable speed controllers to existing single speed HVAC units has proven to dramatically reduce energy consumption and the technology has other significant benefits. Products like Catalyst, also provide the value of fault detection, measurement of energy savings, adjustment of controls, email alerts, viewing performance and Demand Response all by way of the internet. Read Bruce’s article here.
