Last time, your fellow electrical engineer Pablo told you about his bad experiences concerning grounding. Now he wants to deal with the electrical installations topic and he got 3 questions for you at the end of the article!

There are many differences that I can mention I found among old residential electrical installations (50 years ago) and today’s installation. The energy needs have changed. The main point is the demand, although it is true that today families have greater economic capacity to acquire more electrical equipment is so quite true that the equipment efficiency has improved considerably.

In the following figures can be seen as the average energy consumption has decreased slightly in recent years:

Energy efficiency and the ENERsip program 1

The impetus of technology has provided for the growth of consumer electronics. Much focus is being directed by countries to improve their state of electrical supplies and to make the process cost effective.

The term of ‘Smart Grid’ has become an oft repeated term in the electrical supply market. The focus of this approach is to bring closer an important stakeholder, the consumer. Centralized and decentralized power generation has become a common phenomenon now.

This has helped in two ways. Firstly, the competition has increased since people can choose from a number of providers, and secondly, in a bid to outdo their competition, providers are banking on latest technologies.

Measure To Conserve Power and Energy 1

The cost of power and energy is increasing day by day. Apart from that it also does not harm to control the excess use or in other words waste of power and energy as there are still many in this so-progressed world who are deprived of these luxuries. So why not use the power and energy smartly so that others and the upcoming generations can benefit from these things too?

Before saying to anybody else we ourselves should look around us whether we in our homes and keeping track of power and energy consumption or not. If everyone starts with their home then there will hardly be left anyone outside to teach or tell this to.

Below are being mentioned some measures which should be observed in order to consume power and energy wisely.

Nowadays, the world is going green and everyone is behind optimising energy and resources. For better energy optimisation, we need to first better know about our energy consumption behaviour. And here comes the concept of energy monitoring tools.

There are multiple energy monitoring tools available in the market such as Dreamwatts, Greenbox, etc. But the whole industry shook its head when Google decided to enter in this field with its free Google Power Meter.

So, what is Google Power Meter? Why it is creating so much buzz?
