    As the Marketing Manager, I do not have the extensive background on lighting and CFLs that some people here at NEMA possess. After hearing all talk about how CFLs will change the future for all of us and how much money people would be saving on their electric bills, I decided it was time to do a little...

  • DOE Secretary Chu Speaks Our Language

    Interesting rehash recently in TED Magazine's weekly special report (written by EleBlog's Joe Salimando) of the recent Great Energy Efficiency Day on Capitol Hill. First, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, the keynote speaker, made two points of interest to NEMA members involved in high performance...
  • Smart Grid Spectrum: License to Collide?

    Reuters is running an article today on spectrum for smart grid devices. The debate pits economics against reliability – use of unlicensed spectrum is cheaper because no FCC license is required, but dedicated spectrum reduces the occurrence of interference with other transmissions. Devices have coexisted...
  • Americans Understand the Need for a Competitive Manufacturing Base

    Good news coming out of a recent Deloitte survey , undertaken in conjunction with The Manufacturing Institute .
