A recent public review of the Facility Smart Grid Information Model (FSGIM), is bringing homes, offices, factories, and other buildings significantly closer to becoming full partners in supporting and managing the electric grid.
ASHRAE/NEMA Standard 201P, Facility Smart Grid Information Model, would provide a common basis for electrical energy consumers to describe, manage and communicate about electrical energy consumptions and forecasts.
This is the latest comprehensive listing of NEMA electrical standards as well as an extensive directory of manufacturers and their products.
In some cases, the ballast’s plastic housing can melt slightly where the glass coil connects to the ballast, the Green Guide states, noting that this “is simply a sign that the heat is escaping as intended in the design of the bulb.”
NEMA has published NEMA ICS 15.1-2012, Instructions for the Handling, Installation, Operation, and Maintenance of Medium Voltage Electric Fire Pump Controllers Rated Not More Than 7200V.
Presented by TFM and NEMA's enLIGHTen America Initiative, this February 14 webinar focused on energy and green codes for lighting controls. Three experts from NEMA member companies discussed technologies and strategies, how the codes figure in, and the results that can be achieved.
The continued uptick in construction activity, while slow, seems steady, but nonresidential construction is not faring as well. Advance data for the second quarter of 2012 indicates an almost 4% drop on an annualized basis, in part because of a significant decline in publicly funded infrastructure investment.

The end of the tunnel appears to be about nine or so months away. The light there is, thankfully, not from an oncoming train. Or so it seems.
The proposed standard will coordinate with work by the North American Energy Standards Board to develop a basic energy usage data model and create a facilities data model that provides additional energy usage data elements for commercial and industrial buildings.
The tax credit is estimated to provide between $400 and $600 million in direct tax incentives to original equipment manufacturers for making--and end users for purchasing--more efficient products.
