White Paper Published By: I.H.S.     Published Date: Nov 06, 2015
Since its first publication in 2003, over 50 distinct countries have adopted the Globally Harmonized System (GHS). Most recently in the United States, OSHA has adopted GHS making the first significant change to its Hazard Communication Standard in nearly 30 years. As the GHS wave continues and more countries adopt it, one thing has become clear: each implementation has its own unique flavor. Companies are therefore challenged with understanding the nuances and implications. What is truly harmonized? What is different? What are the implications for my Safety Data Sheets and Labels? The following series of Questions and Answers compiled by IHS experts aims to provide some pragmatic guidance on some of the most important aspects of GHS variations and common issues around the globe.

White Paper Published By: SAP     Published Date: Mar 22, 2016
Experts say the demand for electricity, natural gas, and water will double or triple as billions of people join the digital economy, and the use of energy and water will grow while vehicles and mass transit go electric. One thing is clear – the digital economy needs clean, dependable, and affordable electricity. This should be a great outlook for power generators, distributors, and retailers, but decarbonization, deregulation, and decentralization are disrupting the century-old utilities hierarchy. A “Digital Energy Network” is emerging that reflects new structures of power generation, transmission, distribution, and retail. It will foster new business models and processes and transform work in a competitive and collaborative digital economy.

White Paper Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Feb 19, 2016
Today's energy landscape is evolving and it's becoming increasingly more difficult for organizations to know which variables will actually impact their business. Furthermore, many people within a typical enterprise have an opinion on how energy and environmental issues impact the bottom line. In today's multinational corporations, energy is important to not only energy managers and procurement professionals, but also sustainability officers, finance directors and even public relations teams. Having a view of the market everywhere your organization has operations is critical to the way you purchase, use and track energy. The convergence of various energy and environmental disciplines, together with the ever-changing global market dynamics, makes 2016 an interesting year. Six key themes are important to watch, and this paper explores each of them in more detail to prepare you for a year of critical energy decisions.

Today’s business environment includes a wide variety of challenges that affect overall operations and performance, and the way your buildings use energy is one of those challenges. In fact, buildings today consume 41% of all energy worldwide and produce 21%* of the world’s carbon emissions. When considered at the individual building level, energy consumption represents 32% of a building’s total lifecycle cost. Today’s organizations are realizing energy and sustainability initiatives are integrated with a building’s performance.

White Paper Published By: Sphera     Published Date: Oct 17, 2016
Leaders at large enterprises know that gathering and disseminating information about environmental, health, and safety performance can lead directly to improved financial performance. Smart companies use a standardized, enterprise-wide environmental management information system (EMIS) to manage their environmental and sustainability information. An EMIS helps them accurately set goals and track what is happening at every level of the organization in a timely manner. Putting an EMIS into place means looking ahead by as much as five, 10 or even 15 years. This report will help companies follow the steps that will increase their likelihood of success down the road.

White Paper Published By: Transformative Wave     Published Date: Sep 19, 2016
Rooftop-Units (RTUs) condition over 60% of commercial floor space in the United States. While typically viewed as one of the more affordable options on the market, traditional RTUs are poorly engineered without energy or maintenance costs in mind. Over the last ten years, a new Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) retrofit technology has established itself to address the wasteful energy practices and operational inefficiencies of RTUs, called Advanced RTU Control (ARC). With ARC retrofit technology, RTU performance is improved through the addition of a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), Demand Control Ventilation, Advanced Economization, and Predictive Economization. ARCs have been tested by numerous utilities and third-party organizations to determine how they perform in various climate zones to validate their ability to lower energy consumption, providing operational oversight, and extend the life of RTU assets.
