CLEAN “Green” ENERGY TECHNOLOGY EFFICIENCY AND MONITORING

  1. 1. MINISTRY OF THE ENVIRONMENT MONTHLY MINISTERIAL SEMINAR CLEAN “Green” ENERGY TECHNOLOGY EFFICIENCY AND MONITORING A presentation by: Engr. FADIPE, Titilope October, 2013
  2. 2. Contents Clean Energy Technology Climate Change /Global Warming Low Carbon Economy Equation Energy Efficiency and Monitoring Conclusion
  3. 3. What Clean Energy Technology is CET is creating Energy with smaller environmental footprint and minimizing pollution. includes recycling, renewable energy (WindPower, SolarPower, Biomass, Hydropower, Biofuels), GreenTransportation, Electric motors, lighting and many other appliances that are now more energy efficient.
  4. 4. Clean Energy Technologies • Renewable Energy: Is defined as energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished on a human timescale such as Sunlight, Wind, Rain, Tides. Waves. • Recycling: is a process to change waste into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduces energy usage, reduce air pollution and water pollution (from land filling)by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emission.
  5. 5. Clean Energy Technologies….cont • Green Transportation: This can be refer to when transportation is sustainable which are largely being measured by effectiveness and efficiency of any transportation system as well as the environmental impact of the system. • Lighting: This is the use of both natural and artificial light sources like lamps and light fixtures for illumination by capturing daylight (using windows, skylights, or light shelves) which are sometimes used as the main source of light during daytime in buildings

  8. 8. Climate Change /Global Warming • Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over time. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth Global Warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans caused by increasing concentration of greenhouse gases produced by human activities such as burning of fossil fuel.
  9. 9. GLOBAL EFFECT OF FOSSIL FUEL
  10. 10. The Low Carbon Economy Equation World’s population Global economy Total Carbon Emissions This is where we can Make a difference Energy efficiency Carbon intensity
  11. 11. Energy Efficiency and Monitoring • Energy Efficiency is "using less energy to provide the same service“ • For example : Replacing an incandescent lamp with a compact fluorescent lamp (which uses much less energy to produce the same amount of light) is energy efficiency.
  12. 12. Advantages of Light Emitting Diode Incandescent Bulb Efficacy (Im/W) Life time (hrs) 7 -20 750–2,000 Compact Fluorescent Lamp 50 -100 9,000–20,000
  13. 13. Energy Monitoring • Hardware and software that connects to your energy resources to provide a defined baseline of energy consumption. • Knowing is the start – you need to see what your energy usage is as a starting point. – However, Being green is not just a marketing strategy, it’s a necessity to be efficient and reduce operating expenses Three monitoring technologies: a) Guessed/Estimated – Good but not accurate. Could be off by as much as 20% for lighting and not loads. b) Current Measurement Only c) Power Measurement
  14. 14. Power Measurement- Best • Samples real voltage and real current at high frequencies • Compensates for phase offsets • Doesn’t get fooled by voltage drops or non-linear current scaling • Expensive • Measured by a dedicated device: GLS-EM-MCU • Most accurate option for measurement • Errors can be smaller than 1% • Useful for measuring ANY electrical load
  15. 15. What are the steps involved • Metering your energy consumption and collecting the data by using an energy monitoring software. • Uncover places to save energy - such as making upgrades or replacing inefficient equipment • Putting into place energy saving functions – such as demand response settings or eliminating wasted energy in unoccupied spaces • Tracking progress by analyzing the real-time data and comparing with historical information to what these efforts are actually achieving.
  16. 16. Bringing it all together: Monitor, Manage AND Control
  17. 17. Conclusion- NOW is time to act!
