This week we’ve again selected a few of the best Energy Management stories that have come across our desk. Apologies for the late delivery – we try to sent this post out every Saturday. But our Editorial Director, Kirby, was a bit behind in his duties this week. (We think it’s because he’s been playing too much with his toys.)
He finally got his homework done, so here’s the list! We don’t go into great detail, but do recommend you check out a few of these links. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
LEDs Emerge as a Popular ‘Green’ Lighting – The New York Times published an article this week regarding the acceptance of LED bulbs in the residential market.
Boxer Targets Energy Efficiency for Climate Strategy – Political Pro ran a story about Senate Environment and Public Works Chairwoman Barbara Boxer pushing legislation as a means of mitigating climate change.
Energy Efficiency and Jevon’s Paradox – A few articles ran this week that are related to our Holiday post regarding Jevon’s Paradox and how improved efficiency of devices may cause overall consumption to increase. ARSTechnica ran a post that acknowledged the phenomenon, but identified its impact as fairly small. While Scientific American ran a similar story on a larger scale.
Refrigerator Infographic – Enervee published a graphic outline how the top brands and various configurations of home refrigerators rate with regards to energy efficiency.
Soon Your Cable Box May Help Manage Home Energy Use – And Earth Techling shared a post about the convergence of home energy management automation with digital cable access.
We hope you enjoy these stories and are having a great weekend!
