Use and Conservation: NIST helps U.S. industry produce, distribute, and
use energy in a reliable, fair, and efficient manner. It does so by providing
standards, measurement methods, technologies, and other support for a wide
range of energy generation, transmission, and distribution systems, ranging
from large power-generating plants and grids to small Solar arrays.
Benefits of Energy Conservation in Hotels: Energy (electricity and fuels) typically makes up 10% to 20% of a small Caribbean hotel’s operating costs, and up to 70% of utilitycosts (see Figure 1). In this competitive business, costs must be keptas low as possible while still maintaining a desired level of service
and comfort. Energy conservation offers virtually all small hotels a quick way to reduce operating costs with relatively little capital investment.

About Oilgae - Oilgae - Oil & Biodiesel from Algae
has a focus on biodiesel production from algae while also discussing
alternative energy in general. Algae present an exciting possibility as a
feedstock for biodiesel, and when you realise that oil was originally
formed from algae - among others - you think "Hey! Why not oil
again from algae!"
To facilitate exploration of oil production from algae as well as exploration of other alternative energy avenues, Oilgae provides web links, directory, and related resources for algae-based biofuels / biodiesel along with inputs on new inventions, discoveries & breakthroughs in other alternative energy domains such as solar, Wind nuclear, hydro, Geothermal hydrogen & fuel cells, gravitational, geothemal, human-powered, ocean & Wave / Tidal energy.
