It is estimated that 60% of all energy used is wasted due to inefficient systems. Municipal buildings and services have a huge energy savings potential, which can reduce their overall energy consumption and energy costs. Artificial intelligence (AI) can help municipalities solve a multitude of problems by identifying where energy is wasted and thereby making them more efficient and helping them convert into smart cities.+Read More
“Artificial intelligence or AI involves a computer’s ability to adapt to a situation and create a unique solution that was not directly programmed. The energy industry has been tapping into the innovative world of AI to learn how to improve processes, ensure energy resiliency and to enhance the customer experience, among other pertinent goals,” Chris Buzby writes on the Constellation Energy Resources blog.+Read More
Under the European Union’s primary law to boost energy efficiency – and meet the EU target of cutting energy use by 20 percent by 2020 – all companies with more than 250 employees must conduct an energy audit within a common framework once every four years. The next deadline for compliance is December 5, 2019.+Read More
