DOE projects to increase the role of solar in U.S. power usage

Rooftop solar panels

A new DOE initiative will help spur development and implementation of technologies for storing solar energy. The projects, which will receive a total of $18 million in funding under the SunShot Initiative, are expected to vastly increase the amount of solar power that can be used to ensure the reliability and performance of the nation’s electric grid. The six projects will use internet-enabled converters and work with smart buildings, appliances, and utility control systems.

The projects included the creation of a distributed energy resource management platform, development of smart inverters and integrated PV, storage, and building load management solutions to help increase the use of renewable technologies such as solar PV. The project is also part of the DOE’s Grid Modernization Initiative, which helps modernize the nation’s power grid by integrating renewable electric sources with conventional ones.

Connectrac® wireways are the new standard for bringing power & communications cable management to all interior applications. Free yourself from core drilling!

Surpass State Energy Requirements with Dual-Cooling Data Center CRAC Technology

See how professionals like you are taking advantage of the highest performing precision cooling system for their computer rooms and data centers, and why Data Aire is fast-becoming the number one choice for facility managers and building owners looking to decrease their energy consumption. 

Data Aire understands how digital technology and data gravity is rapidly impacting and transforming businesses. That’s why they developed ultra-efficient cooling technology to support the most modern (and not-so-modern) data centers.  Learn how One Wilshire in Los Angeles, one of the most advanced carrier hotels today, is surpassing California's strict energy efficiency requirements with Data Aire’s purpose-built system, which provide full-economization for 260 days – almost 72% of the year. That’s a measurable savings! Furthermore, the projected PUE on an annual basis for a full load is at or below 1.2.
