Wireless System To Save Energy

Ember Corp. and Honeywell International will collaborate on a $10 million cost-sharing project co-funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) that will pursue development of energy-saving wireless mesh networking applications for federally designated "industries of the future." Both companies plan to develop monitoring applications to stem energy loss from industrial components, such as steam traps and electric motors.

Honeywell estimates the wireless mesh network monitoring applications can save up to 192 trillion Btu of energy per year. The project is part of a $61 million national program announced in November by Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham to improve energy efficiency in strategic industries such as petrochemicals, electric power, and manufacturing.
