EDP Europe to offer Packet Power’s wireless data centre power and environmental monitoring solution in the UK market.
Packet Power is pleased to announce the appointment of EDP Europe as a UK distributor for the Packet Power wireless power and environmental monitoring system. Packet Power provides the easiest, most cost effective way to capture detailed power and temperature information for both single site and large multi-facility operations.
The Packet Power solution is easy to install without the need of electricians or removal of existing equipment. All monitoring devices utilise a self-configuring wireless mesh network to communicate with each other, keeping the need for IP addresses to just one per Ethernet Gateway. The Ethernet Gateway device gathers the data from hundreds of monitoring points and makes it available to existing IT applications via SNMP or transmits it to Packet Power’s EMX software. EMX is available as a cloud-based service for easy deployment or as a local application for complete customer control. Smart Power cables, in a range of styles, incorporate precise power and temperature monitoring into a power cord format. While the Environmental Monitoring node provides up to eleven temperature monitoring points and one humidity or differential pressure point.
Colin Parker, EDP Europe’s Marketing Manager said “We are delighted to have added the Packet Power product line to our portfolio of products that help Data Centre and Facility Managers improve their energy efficiency. The system is very easy to install and the data it provides will help quantify where energy savings can be made. Its scalability allows you to start small and grow over time”.
“We are delighted to welcome EDP Europe as a partner in the United Kingdom,” stated Steve VanTassel, CEO at Packet Power. “The combination of EDP Europe’s extensive data centre knowledge and the Packet Power offering set will help make it easier and more affordable for UK data centres to gain the knowledge they need to improve operational effectiveness and make informed decisions about their energy use.”

Little Rock, AR: As a service under its RIN 9000 program, Lee Enterprises Alternative Fuels Consulting is providing free information about biodiesel plants to the U.S. oil industry. Compliance with the renewable fuel standard (RFS2) has always been a service provided to biodiesel producers by Lee Enterprises, and the group has now undertaken the administration of a program allowing RIN Obligated Parties—refiners of gasoline or diesel fuel and importers of those products—access to free information. The group’s CEO Wayne Lee said this latest service was undertaken to help address what he calls a “RIN purchase hesitation” that now appears prevalent in the biodiesel industry.
“RFS2 mandates that these refiners and importers purchase renewable identification numbers to show compliance with RFS2,” Lee said. “Last year the EPA uncovered two isolated instances of people apparently producing RINS without producing any biodiesel. But when the EPA started invalidating some of these RINs, it caused quite a problem for oil companies who then were understandably hesitant to purchase RINs.” This hesitation to purchase has taken a big toll on small producers and Lee speculates that unless something changes, a chain reaction will occur that could result in huge costs for oil companies and biodiesel producers.
“The problem is actually quite simple,” Lee said. “Obligated parties must have RINs and RINs can only be created when biodiesel is produced. So if biodiesel producers can’t sell their RINs and quit producing biodiesel, it will likely cause a significant price increase for those that do exist.”
Lee noted that the very large biodiesel producers seem to be faring better than smaller producers in the sale of RINs. “There seems to be a perception that very large biodiesel companies are ‘safer bets’ in the event that the RINs are ultimately invalidated,” Lee said, adding that this is faulty logic and overlooks the distinction between RIN creation and RIN separation. “I suspect that if there are more RIN problems, they will be in how the RINs are separated. I don’t know of any producers that are creating them improperly—big or small.”
The real question, said Lee, is who will have the liability, not who has the financial capabilities. “I don’t know of anyone that will agree to be liable for RINs they validly created and sold, which are later invalidated due to someone else’s actions outside of their control.”
In an attempt to help alleviate the problem, Lee’s group recently undertook administration of a RIN procedure verification program designed to assist producers and obligated parties. The service includes education, onsite plant inspections, verification of plant procedures, and independent testing of the biodiesel. The group then compiles a comprehensive list of biodiesel producers that have undertaken and successfully completed their review, and provide the list to obligated parties, blenders and brokers. Lee said he knows there are similar, adequate services on the market.
“I think the biggest difference with our program is that we provide the results free to the obligated parties,” Lee said. The decision to provide this information free-of-charge to obligated parties was based on discussions within his group. “It was our feeling that if we were going to charge a plant to undergo this scrutiny, we had an obligation to try and get the information out to as many obligated parties as possible,” he said. Lee added that providing the information free to those who could use it was the easiest way to insure that everyone who wanted the information could get it.
“I don’t know many oil companies that will pass up free information,” Lee said. Preregistration can be done by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting the company’s website, www.lee-enterprises.com.

Nickel allergies are responsible for disrupting band practice! Children and teens who unknowingly are allergic to nickel are facing itchy rashes around their mouths, chin, neck, and fingers due to nickel found in the band instruments.
Brass, woodwinds, and string instruments may all contain nickel. Musicians have long considered contact dermatitis to be an occupational hazard for those with allergies to metal. Further exacerbating the problem of skin contact with nickel is the pressure, friction, and moisture related to sweat and saliva. These conditions worsen an already existing nickel allergy causing extreme discomfort.
Symptoms of nickel allergy include red rashes, bumps on the skin, moderate to severe itching, swelling, blisters or crusting skin. These symptoms are generally isolated to the area in contact with the metal containing nickel.
Parents and teachers should consider recommending nickel allergy testing for a guitarist with rashes on the hand, an oboist with itchy lips, or even a violinist using a metal chin rest that is causing welts on the neck area.
There are remedies, but each case should be tested by an allergist or dermatologist to make the correct diagnosis. Following testing, it may be recommended that the band member take a break from music until the skin condition heals. Additionally, acoustic guitarists may select from bronze, copper or nylon strings that will not cause a reaction. Plastic mouthpieces are available for woodwind and brass instruments, and in some cases, gloves may help the allergy.
To forestall these problems, consider testing band instruments prior to buying or using them. Minute concentrations of nickel can be detected by using Nickel Alert™, from NoNickel.com. This product can show a positive nickel result in seconds and is safe to use on any band equipment.
Should band members find there is a nickel allergy, NoNickel.com has up-to-date information on nickel allergy as well as products that will enable the allergy sufferer to live a comfortable life. A “must-have” for those with nickel allergy is Nickel Guard™ a brush-on protective sealant that provides an effective barrier between the skin and the offending metal. The owners of NoNickel have extensive experience with allergic contact dermatitis and guarantee their certified nickel free products to never cause an allergic reaction to nickel.
Popular products for teens and tweens include trendy nickel free belts and an extensive selection of handmade hypoallergenic earrings. NoNickel also offers handmade nickel free leather belts for men and women, many of them with durable titanium buckles. Living with a nickel allergy has never been easier with the products and lifestyle tips offered by NoNickel.com.

Wedding and Meeting Planning Virtual Trade Show Network Launched to include over 150 U.S. City Shows
|March 7, 2012||Filled under releases, United States||
Get to know your local wedding planning and meeting planning company vendors virtually. Research and plan your next event in the comfort of your own home or office 24/7!
http://www.WebEventPlanner.com announced today the launch of its new Wedding Planning and Meeting Planning virtual trade show network resource. WebEventPlanner.com is a free virtual trade show network resource which allows the event planning and travel consumer to browse exhibitors and attend show events on line, providing additional options and convenience when in the planning process. Each virtual city trade show showcases local Exhibitors, Vendor Search by service category, Show Events/Presenters, Floor Maps and more. Attend trade shows online in over 80 U.S. cities which includes 160 shows (and growing) on your schedule (24/7) in the comfort of your home or office.
At WebEventPlanner.com, we thought of a search engine as this big messy trade show, and we thought it would be helpful to make it make more sense by turning a messy show into a successful, free 24/7 on line event. “Today’s virtual marketing and advertising options offers little personal attention or customer service,” says Louis Godin, Virtual Trade Show Organizer. “WebEventPlanner.com adds that little personal touch of “Sales 101″ (customer service, rapport, and education) to all its virtual events and exhibitor space. Search engines provide no rapport building techniques and do not offer a complete list of industry businesses that may be beneficial in our search. Many times search engines provide us with the companies with top advertising dollars or with information that is unorganized and outdated. We have to dig and dig to extract an array of access links and information we are looking for.”
Virtual trade shows allow the event planning and travel consumer to browse exhibitors and attend show events in the comfort of their own home or office providing additional options and convenience when in the buying process. Industries such as travel, wedding planning and meeting planning consumers do not always know what they are looking for. They often want various options. Virtual trade shows allow flexible online options, similar to attending a brick and mortar trade show. Virtual Trade Shows enables attendees to visit area virtual trade show and browse exhibitors online without the crowds and lines and allow attendees the flexibility to attend a show when they want to 24/7 365 days a year.
WebEventPlanner.com virtual trade show network is a 100% FREE on line resource – FREE to attendees and qualifiied industry exhibitors and presenters. Sign up for your FREE exhibitor booth space and/or presenter event space by visiting http://www.WebEventPlanner.com
