The Evolution of Energy Management
We demand all information on every device we own, everywhere we go. Fast. To accommodate, industries are not only demanding more power than ever, but they are seeking new levels of efficiency in the power chain and new, more environmentally responsible sources of generation. Once disparate industries from IT to telecommunications to content delivery are converging at record pace. Energy delivery and management, too, has become a melting pot. Both AC and DC power are viable options in facilities of all types and are bringing new energy-saving possibilities to micro grids. And the intelligence to see and control that energy use doesn't stop at the outlet. Smart Grid innovations are magnifying the energy savings made possible by the visibility and control now possible within a building's walls. This session will look at today's rapidly changing energy management landscape and provide a glimpse into what may come next.
