The E-Vision 2002 convention, held in may well 2002, was once backed through the U.S. division of power as a step towards enforcing a key advice of the Bush administration's nationwide strength coverage. It accumulated one hundred fifty of the nation's prime power specialists to debate methods of lowering the country's power depth. This quantity and the extra quantity enclosed on CD-ROM include the displays and discussions that happened on the convention, together with the id of ambitions and the ability to accomplish them. it's a key paintings for these fascinated about enforcing the nationwide strength coverage.

However, ITT estimates that 75 percent of pumps are oversized for their application. Since pump efficiencies decline precipitously when pumps are inaccurately sized, the result is wasted energy. The solution, according to Hovstadius, is to perform systems analysis and consider LCC when designing an industrial system. In the case of industrial pumping systems, that means design the complete system and appropriately size the components. For example, if it is possible to replace a 150-hp motor with a 100hp motor in a pumping application, the savings over the life of the system can range from $100,000 to $700,000.

The problem is also structural. Sperling hoped that information technology could be incorporated into the transportation infrastructure to promote new mobility options, greatly reducing energy intensity. S. development and continues today. To overcome this problem will require a sustained effort on the part of government, industry, and citizens. The government can focus its efforts on promising but currently unviable technologies that may not be supported by entrenched interests. Industry needs to commit itself to the distribution of advanced technologies, Sperling continued.

GE continues to develop high- 32 E-Vision 2002 Conference Proceedings, Volume I efficiency lights, the most promising of which are LED technologies. Solar cell development is beginning to yield high-efficiency and cost-effective products. Distributed generation of electricity may help increase efficiency in many areas, but it requires interconnection standards and changes in electricity distribution and pricing. Several participants noted that the patterns of energy use are a direct function of the post–World War II demographic changes in the nation.
