Alabama Power, “Other
Electrotechnologies: Electrode Boilers"
Electrode boilers work by passing current
through the water, between electrodes. They are used in industrial
applications, where large amounts of water must be converted to steam.
Electrode boilers have a very quick delivery time, which makes them
excellent for use in intermittent or cyclical operations. Best applications
are where there are load swings (daily, hourly, weekly), and areas
with high gas prices, particularly with the demand charge.
Cheremisinoff, Nicholas P., "Electrotechnology: Industrial and
Environmental Applications" (1996)
This book presents a survey of
electro-technologies and their status. Principles of operation and
significant applications, both current and potential are outlined, and an
assessment is made wherever possible of the selected topics. The objectives
of this book are two-fold: (1) to identify and describe the range of
industrial and environmental applications of electro-technologies; and (2)
to identify those applications that have potential for commercialization and
that are likely to affect energy consumption patterns. The author,
Nicholas P. Cheremisinoff, heads the Industrial Waste Management Program to
eastern Ukraine under the United States Agency for International

“Power Companies, Developers Hold Second Conference on Internet Data
Centers” (EEI Press Release, 01-Oct-2001)
Edison Electric Institute and The
Electrification Council hosted a second conference to address the growth and
electric infrastructure challenges of "Internet Hotels." Among the topics
addressed at the conference were the investment and operational
opportunities in the Internet data center market for utilities, as well as
for developers, energy services and supply companies, and facility managers;
the energy-saving advancements in space conditioning equipment, distributed
generation and superconductors; and the regulatory policies that give
incumbent utilities more flexibility to package and price services for
Internet hotels, which would enable the utilities to bear more investment
Emerging Technology Coordinating Council (ETCC)
The Emerging Technologies Coordinating
Council is a group of representatives from the California Energy Commission,
Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas,
and San Diego Gas & Electric, charged with administrating California utility
ratepayer funded programs for energy related research and energy efficient
Industrial Technology Institute of Sri Lanka, "Electro Technology
The Electro Technology Centre (ETC) was formed in January 2005 by
amalgamating the Instrumentation Group and Noise/Vibration service area of
the Metrology Group, a part of the former Metrology and Instrumentation
Division. The unit’s main task is the repair and maintenance of laboratory
and industrial equipment including UV Spectrophotometers, Atomic Absorption
utilities, Electronic Balance tools, Laboratory Ovens, and other measurement
related equipment. The ETC also takes on the design and development of
electronic product development with its area of expertise being equipment
related to measurement.
