Required fields are marked * A team of students who worked with Caltechâ€™s Resnick Sustainability Institute have won second place in the western finals of a recent DOE (Department of Energy) business plan competition, it was announced today.Chai Energy is developing a mobile phone app for monitoring energy usage in the home. This has the potential of enabling consumers to understand and manage their energy usage in real time and lead to savings of both energy and money, according to a news statement.Chai won $40,000 in the contest, which is called First Look West (FLoW). FLoW is a consortium of California Institute of Technology led by the Resnick Institute, University of Southern California and the UC Los Angeles and represents the Western Region of the DOEâ€™s National Clean Energy Business Plan Competition (NCEBPC).Chai was formed as a result of a group of California Institute of Technology (Caltech) students working together on a Resnick Sustainability Institute-sponsored team in the US Solar Decathlon, a competition focused on building the most creative and energy efficient solar house.â€œDuring our project to build the most energy efficient solar house, we learned that a very basic energy problem exists in most households,â€ said Cole Hershkowitz, one of the founders of Chai.â€œThe majority of consumers donâ€™t know where energy and money is being wasted in their homes,â€ Hershkowitz said. â€œBut with insight into their usage and waste, they suddenly have much greater power to reduce them.”The team is working with Southern California Edison, Digi International hardware, and UC Irvine researchers as key partners in a one hundred home pilot with the goal of launching the product later this year. Chai estimates a total addressable market of 200 million homeowners throughout the United States.â€œOur goal is to enable transformational technology that can influence the future of sustainability,â€ said Neil Fromer, Executive Director of the Resnick Sustainability Institute. â€œBy potentially empowering people in as many as 200 million households, a big impact is possible.â€ Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Sarah Kiely at The Boro Field.A GREEN space in Janesboro, which is being used for illegal dumping and antisocial behaviour, should be developed into a community centre with astro turf pitches and a dog-walking area.That’s the view of Fine Gael City East local election hopeful Sarah Kiely who spoke this week about the concerns of residents living in Janesboro.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The green space, which is next to Janesboro AFC’s grounds, is known locally as ‘The Boro Field’ and Ms Kiely says it should now be made a priority by Gardaí.“The current issues include illegal dumping of garden waste and more importantly, household rubbish. Some houses in Colbert Avenue have back gardens backing on to this site and it is an obvious negative for them.“Horses are often left there for days and animal welfare is a huge concern. They have no shelter and the owners are unknown,” she told the Limerick Post.“When scramblers and quads are being used there is a serious risk to safety. They are used on the main roads and avenues of Rathbane and Janesboro, making their way down to the field where mayhem takes over. Dog walkers are fearful and kids can’t play safely.”Sarah believes community policing would go a long way to addressing some of the issues.“Visibility is also key.“The solution is not a simple one. It will take input from residents and the council as well as the Gardaí on a meaningful level. Immediate intervention is required from a safety aspect so if enough people contact the Gardaí, it would put it up the list of priorities.”She is proposing that the area, also known as ‘The Wild Boro’, is used to develop astro turf pitches and a dog-walking area.“A community centre is also badly needed. I know that’s a massive undertaking but we might as well go big or go home. If we had a representative on the council, we could advocate for this at a local and national level. There are lots of ways to access funding, we just need to give it serious effort with multidisciplinary input from all local stakeholders.“The fact is Old Christians GAA club and Janesboro AFC pay to use Younger Munsters astro turf during the winter. Why can’t a community our size have our own?“Not only would it be fantastic for our clubs, it would go a long way to addressing some of the issues that are having an adverse impact on the community. Rathbane, Kennedy and Glasgow Park, Carey’s Road and Janesboro would all benefit from this proposal,” she concluded.

Estate Agents and anyone in the property industry wanting to know more about the fast-growing Modern Method of Auction (MMoA) are being invited to attend a free webinar being hosted by iamsold.Despite MMoA becoming a more mainstream way to buy and sell property, there are still common misconceptions which the webinar will address, as well as the evolution of the method and the benefits it offers to both agents and consumers.iamsold’s MMoA sales grew by 18 per cent last year and the method is continuing to gain momentum. Earlier this month, Rightmove launched a new digital auction feature powered by iamsold, and MMoA sales so far this year are breaking records.The webinar will be hosted by iamsold’s Head of Partnerships, Tom Bailey on Thursday, May 13 at 11am, alongside panellists Jamie Cooke (Managing Director) and Emma Burdis (Head of Compliance). The session will cover:How did the Modern Method of Auction start – talking about how MMoA works, who it is for and busting the myths and misconceptions around the method.Putting the spotlight on transparency and compliance – discussing the importance of transparency, best practice and the roadmap for more improvements in the future.The future of MMoA – looking at how Rightmove and Zoopla are supporting MMoA and what it means for adoption of the method, auction market predictions for the remainder of 2021, and what innovation is to come.Jamie Cooke, Managing Director at iamsold, said: “With interest in the Modern Method of Auction growing at speed and more agents considering offering it to meet demand from consumers, we want to use this webinar to share more information about the method and answer any questions people may have.“It will be a great opportunity for agents to learn more about the benefits MMoA can give them and their clients, and ultimately clear up any misconceptions. One misconception we hear is a lack of transparency around fees which MMoA has faced criticism for. This is an area we’ve driven significant change around to ensure full transparency and that consumers have a consistent MMoA experience. By addressing things like this we hope people will leave the session with a better understanding of MMoA and its place in the market.”iamsold recently took the top spot on Essential Information Group’s 2020 auctioneer league table.
