The U.S. Department of Energy has issued a call for industry proposals as part of a fast-track power-plant improvement program intended to address the nation's power needs and help reduce future brownouts and blackouts.

Syska & Hennessy's OnlinEnvironments details four key issues affecting a facility's ability to stay connected in the event of a power interruption.

U.S. lighting-control switch sales rose from $394.8 million in 1998 to $413.1 million in 1999, and the growth rate is expected to remain steady through 2006, concludes a recent Frost & Sullivan market study.

"Powering the New Economy," a recent report released by the U.S. Department of Energy, concludes that economic expansion and the rapid growth of the digital economy has strained electric generation and the nation's grid. Over the next decade, the industry will have to deal with enhancing energy security, increasing reliability and mitigating the environmental impact of energy production and use.
