As the modern grid evolves, the electricity supply and demand will be more dynamic than ever. We need two-way communication between electric service providers and building energy management systems. Slipstream’s engineers created foundational education to empower building owners, designers, and building operators to build and operate for smart grid design. ASHRAE’s Smart Grid Application Guide: Integrating Facilities with the Electric Grid is the first and only of its kind developed for building designers and operators. More

Sometimes the simplest things can have the greatest impact when saving energy in commercial buildings. The key is to identify those opportunities. Slipstream worked for several years with Belkin International and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab in a Department of Defense sponsored study to evaluate a Belkin technology designed to identify and quantify specific electric loads operating at any given time. The system works by applying machine learning algorithms to measurements made where electrical service enters a building. More

At Slipstream, we have employees who want to walk the talk when it comes to energy efficiency. Sam Simonetta is one of those people. Sam considers himself fortunate to be able to live net-zero (NZ) in a home he and his wife, Christine, designed and built -- with a lot of help. As a kid, Sam dreamed of generating his own electricity from wind power, and in 2001 he and Christine decided it was time to make that happen. Their aspirations didn’t take shape overnight though.

Refrigeration is a massive energy suck in commercial and industrial buildings. So much so that tremendous effort has been put into measures to reduce energy use in refrigeration systems across the country. Even though the industry has worked tirelessly to install system controls, there is still a long way to go. Our research team has continued to look for more aggressive solutions in the refrigeration world. More

Imagine heading to the grocery store with your list of ingredients for your meals for the next month. Then, imagine not seeing prices listed for any items and not being charged for anything until the month is over. So, you have four weeks’ worth of groceries that you have consumed but no clue how much you spent on them. This is how our energy bills work. Electricity is one of the few things in life we pay for well after we use it. More
