From the ‘what will they think of next?’ file comes a new smart fridge that scripts a whole new chapter in home appliances.You see, Samsung has just unveiled a high-tech refrigerator that could become the most important appliance in your entire home.Called the Family Hub Refrigerator, this new appliance is loaded with all sorts of cool technology that keeps you connected with your family, better allows you to manage food and lets you entertain like never before.
After years of promoting the benefits of wind, the Governors’ Wind Energy Coalition is changing its focus — just a bit. Now pairing its seven years of advocacy for wind with advocacy work for solar energy, the coalition hopes its new focus will be reflected in its new name — the Governors’ Wind and Solar Energy Coalition (GWSC).”This bipartisan governors’ coalition has been highly effective at getting policy results and have helped grow wind energy for nearly a decade,” said Tom Kiernan, CEO of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). “The governors’ decision to combine forces with solar energy reflects the economic and environmental value of diversifying our nation’s grid with clean, reliable renewable energy.”
The “Internet of Things” (IoT) describes a world where the physical objects around us – everything from heart pacemakers to fridges – are connected via digital networks. The PETRAS IoT Hub will explore the technical, ethical and social issues associated with these networks. It aims to make the UK the world’s best place to develop and deploy new internet technologies.Imperial College London is part of the new consortium of nine universities, which has received £9.8 million support from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), as part of a UK Government investment in IoT research.
Following the Transatlantic Economic Council’s decision to promote electric vehicles and smart grid interoperability, on 29 October the European Commission inaugurated a dedicated state-of-the-art laboratory, operated by the Commission’s in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre.Together with its partner facility in the US Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory, it will ensure that the next generation of electric cars and smart grids are fully interoperable, based on harmonised standards, technology validation and testing methods. This is an important step towards creating “a single language” for all components that will benefit both the industry and the environment on both sides of the Atlantic.
The smart grid: It’s the power-system modernization effort that U.S. utilities are building to meet the country’s growing demands for electricity. But it’s not confined to power plants and substations–if you have a smart meter, a key piece of smart grid technology already is attached to your house.That means that Americans’ willingness to accept those meters, and use the features they provide, serves an important role in developing a more reliable, secure electrical grid.
A new app that can reportedly cut household energy use by 10% is being rolled out to 200,000 Swedish homes.The Energy Tree app analyses data from the smart power grid to discover households’ energy trends and encourages users to consume less energy through personalised feedback and guidance.“The Energy Tree combines behavioural science and gamification with data analytics to engage and motivate households,” said a statement from the app developers Greenely.
Here’s a scenario for you: It’s been a while since you’ve done your laundry; the stuff is piling up and threatening to take over. So, reluctantly, you decide to take the bull by the horns—you load the machine.
However, despite knowing that you shouldn’t, you stuff the thing as full as you can get it. Just an extra towel won’t be a problem, right?
A new report from the Bay Area Council Economic Institute claims that California needs new approaches to managing the exploding growth of digital technologies, as well as the rapid changes in how the state produces, stores and delivers energy to its 37 million residents. For the energy sector and utilities that are developing clean power sources and adopting new technologies for managing the grid, there are challenges. Realizing the full value and potential of technology will require state and local government to adopt new ways of managing how advanced communications and energy systems are rolled out and integrated, according to the report.
