Eaton Explores Energy Policy Challenges at GLOBALCON 2014

25th Annual GLOBALCON Conference and Expo in Atlantic City, N.J. from April 9-10, 2014

PITTSBURGH … Power management company Eaton today announced that the company will be exhibiting at the 25th Annual GLOBALCON Conference and Expo in Atlantic City, N.J. from April 9-10, 2014, highlighting energy surety and energy management solutions. Bill Anderson, director, strategy and business development, Eaton's Government Sector, will also speak at the event, discussing the challenges facing comprehensive energy policy.


Held at the Atlantic City Convention Center, the conference provides a forum for attendees to expand their knowledge of fast-moving developments in the energy field, explore promising new technologies, compare energy supply options, and learn about innovative and cost-conscious project implementation strategies.

Visitors to Eaton's booth, number 512, will learn about the company's energy management solutions, as well as meet and discuss energy policy issues with Anderson. Eaton's Cooper Lighting business will also exhibit at the event, booth number 514, displaying a number of energy-saving indoor and outdoor light-emitting diode (LED) products with advanced LED technology. This includes products featuring the company's new patented WaveStream™ LED technology, offering a new level of energy efficiency, optical performance and brightness control – all at an affordable price.

"World leaders have grappled with the challenges of comprehensive energy policy for years with little success," said Anderson. "My presentation will help generate thought-provoking dialogue among GLOBALCON attendees and others participating in the greater energy policy debate."

Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to and discuss with Anderson as he shares his white paper, titled "The Challenges Facing Comprehensive Energy Policy," surrounding the importance of developing a comprehensive global energy policy. The paper features segments such as providing for energy surety, the role of the military and the pros and cons of energy independence.

In conjunction with GLOBALCON, Eaton is sponsoring an open house for its federal clients at the microgrid demonstration site, Philadelphia Navy Yard on April 8. Discussions will focus on grid security issues and opportunities to enhance protection of critical infrastructure through secure microgrids.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
