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.

Made possible through a grant from the James A. “Buddy” Davidson Charitable Foundation, ACU’s Graduate School of Theology will deploy ten iPads for students to conduct contextual ministry field research during the spring of 2012.
Abilene Christian University, a recognized leader in the use of mobile technology within higher education today announced that its Graduate School of Theology will deploy ten iPads for students to conduct contextual ministry field research during the spring of 2012. The purchase of the technology was made possible by a $10,000.00 grant from the James A. “Buddy” Davidson Charitable Foundation of Midland, Texas.http://www.acu.edu/
“The purpose of the research is to better prepare my fellow graduate students for the rigors and demands of ministry,” said James Prather, president of ACU’s Graduate Student Association. “The use of the iPad technology will assist students in identifying the contextual expectations of their chosen field.”
The research to be conducted by ten graduate students in Dr. Tim Sensing’s “Contexts of Ministry” course (BIBM657) will conclude in May 2012 with the findings to be presented at the January 2013 biennial meeting of the Association for Theological Field Educators in Williamsburg, VA. The use of the mobile technology by the ten students marks the first opportunity for graduate students to participate in the university’s ongoing mobile learning initiative. http://www.acu.edu/
Participants in the course are first asked to identify a field they are passionate about from a range of ministries that include; community development, social justice, congregational nurture and transformation, global contexts and emerging church forms, and chaplaincy. Each field offers its own unique set of challenges.
Students previously used handwritten field notes and audio recordings to capture interviews in their ethnographic research related to the history, demographics, stories, traditions, people, and events associated with a particular ministry. The techniques used to process and analyze the data involved tedious hours, complex coding methods, and expensive software. The process was not always successful due in part to the student’s lack of time and technical expertise.
With the introduction of the mobile, user-friendly, and intuitive iPad2 technology, it is anticipated that students can now conduct ethnographic research, share their findings with peers and professors in real-time, and present the results of their research in days instead of weeks. While the students are using the iPads to conduct their research, Dr. Sensing will be analyzing the efficacy of the technology as an educational tool for ethnography.
“Ethnography is a skill these students can utilize as they encounter various fields of ministry in order to enhance their pastoral practice,” said Dr. Sensing. “The use of mobile technology not only will simplify the process but holds the promise of innovation that could facilitate how ethnographic research is conducted. We are thrilled about the possibilities and truly grateful to the Davidson Foundation for their generous grant.”

In a world of search engines, social networking, smartphones, and converged mobile devices, students have access to more information than one could process in a lifetime, Abilene Christian University launched a mobile-learning initiative, Connected, in 2008. The initiative trains students to not merely consume these vast amounts of information, but to assess information, to synthesize thoughts, to generate new ideas, and to contribute meaningfully to conversations of global importance. ACU is committed to exploring how these technologies can be used to help people learn in new ways and discover how these tools can aid us in its mission to educate students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world. More than 4,500 students, including nearly 800 graduate students, enroll in ACU from 47 states and territories, and 41 nations. Visit
