11. Battery Discharge Characteristics of Wireless Sensors in Building Applications
Published: 4/11/2012
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Sensor nodes in wireless networks often use batteries as their source of energy, but replacing or recharging exhausted batteries in a deployed network can be difficult and costly. Therefore, prolonging battery life becomes a principal objective ...

17. Measurement Science Roadmap for Net-Zero Energy Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1660
Published: 3/18/2010
Authors: Joan Pellegrino, Arthur Hunter Fanney, Andrew Keith Persily, Piotr A Domanski, William M Healy, Steven T Bushby
Abstract: Buildings account for nearly a third of the world s energy use today, and this share is expected to rise along with population growth and levels of prosperity. In the United States, residential and commercial buildings consume about 40% of primary en ...

18. Measurement Challenges in Achieving Energy Monitoring Systems in Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1656
Published: 3/3/2010
Author: William M Healy
Abstract: The benefits of energy conserving approaches in buildings are often not apparent to building occupants because of the insufficient feedback provided regarding energy consumption. A review of the literature suggests that energy feedback devices can p ...
