Green Ovations: Mapping the Building Genome
How data analytics enables a better understanding of how buildings consume energy, and why open data can be a game-changer in the energy efficiency sector
Forty percent – that's the portion of energy that commercial and residential buildings consume. Yet, in spite of the fact that buildings are driving nearly half of all global energy consumption, 30 to 50 percent of that consumed energy is wasted.
From Research to Action: Integrated Security Operations Centers: Advanced Security Monitoring and Threat Management
Electric power companies increasingly are the targets of sophisticated attacks. These assaults include not just advanced cyber security threats, but physical attacks as well.
