Clean Energy Awareness and Sustainability

Energy awareness month has resulted in a lot of discussions regarding energy related topics. Discussion about sustainability, specifically focusing on clean energy technology, has been embarked upon by the Department of Energy (DOE). These exchanges are to address the clean energy technology marketplace as well as the impact of funding on clean technology. But what does sustainability and clean technology have to do with energy awareness?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Sustainability is defined as policies and strategies that meet society’s present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. How does this tie into energy technology? The current energy system is using a fuel based approach. Clean energy technology focuses on renewable energy that does not have a fuel that has the potential to run out, such as wind, geothermal, solar or tidal. Clean energy technology ties into sustainability by creating a strategy for producing energy that will not only work for current generations but generations to come.

Sustainability and clean energy technology tie into energy awareness by suggesting if you are not aware of where and how your energy is being produced then how can you be certain that it will always be available. How can you become truly aware of your usage, specifically, your renewable production and your impact on the environment in order to become sustainable?

Real-time carbon and renewable energy tracking has become a reality. Using a Continuous Energy Management and Optimization (CEMO) system you can measure your renewable energy sources, grid electric usage, and your carbon footprint all in real-time. With the renewable portfolio manager you have the power to see your sustainability efforts in practice. This added energy awareness will help you make the adjustments you need to make your organization sustainable or to meet sustainability indexes. As more focus is being placed on clean energy and sustainability more systems are being created to monitor and capture usage to heighten awareness. Why not use a system that ties everything together into one easy to read dashboard? The more aware you become the more you can save energy and be more sustainable.
