Power Quality for Commercial and Industrial Customers with a Focus on Energy-Efficiency (EE) Technologies

The development and installation of EE technologies are growing by leaps and bounds in the areas of lighting, HVAC, appliances, and more. EE technologies are often designed using new principles. Many of the products end-users are accustomed to using are being replaced by electronics-based products. One perfect example is the incandescent lamp.

Consumers now have the choice of compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light-emitting diode (LED) lamps, among others. Older HVAC systems are being replaced with high-efficiency systems with some using variable-speed drives. Intelligent appliances that use high-efficiency designs are also available on the market. The purpose of this blog is to engage end-users, manufacturers, facility engineers, and utility personnel (e.g., engineers, program managers, etc.) in basic and advanced discussion regarding power quality issues, concerns, questions, experiences, etc. with EE technologies.

This blog is not being supported to sell products or marketing solutions. Instead, it is designed to promote dialogue and share information on these important topics critical to the sustainability of our planet and society.
