According to ENERGY STAR™, kitchen lighting is responsible for a substantial amount of energy use in a home.  Cree is partnering with Habitat for Humanity with a 3-year commitment to provide high efficiency Cree LED downlights for the kitchens in all new Habitat for Humanity homes. Providing energy saving lighting will reduce energy use and cost for future homeowners.  The kitchen lighting packages feature Cree’s newest LED downlight, the CR6. The CR6 is designed to last 50,000 hours, which is more than 22 years if the lights are used six hours a day. These LED downlights exceed ENERGY STAR™ criteria, consuming 85% less energy than an incandescent and 55% less energy than a compact fluorescent.  The lights will be available for all Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the country and will make the homes more affordable and contribute to developing sustainable communities.

Smart metering isn’t new but it also isn’t widely known about or widely used for energy use decision making.  Homeowners only think about energy use when the bill arrives and then they may not have the ability to make informed decisions on their energy consumption. Now, with IBM teaming up with energy consultant Hildebrand, the UK homeowner will have the tools to modify the amount of energy they use.  IBM is supplying the data management software which, when combined with  the Hildebrand monitoring system, will  enable real-time analysis of electricity usage for households, or even for individual appliances, to help people make better decisions about energy efficiency in the home and minimize their environmental impact.  Guido Bartels, General Manager of Energy & Utilities at IBM, can be seen discussing Hildebrand and energy use by viewing this video.
