1. U.S. 'open for business' as Obama opens Hannover Messe

President pushes Transatlantic trade deal as America begins to showcase manufacturing at week-long global trade fair.

2. U.S. motor-driven system energy savings

Efficiency of motor-driven systems: Motor-driven system regulations are changing in the U.S. to improve efficiencies beyond individual motors. Considering the motion control system can deliver more than six times the power savings compared to motor efficiencies alone, according to NEMA committee members. Power electronics are helping. 

3. Companies to create smart microgrid using Internet of Energy platform

DNV GL, Group Nire and Geli (Growing Energy Labs, Inc.), will produce and operate an Internet of Energy (IoEn) platform designed to integrate and manage up to 100 distributed energy resources (DER) in an effort to help improve the U.S. electrical grid's efficiency and reliability.

4. Financial benefits of combining automation and safety projects

Collaborating on seemingly disparate projects could help companies save money by having the different departments focus on areas where their interests and agendas overlap.

5. Flow management solution: Match the flowmeter to the application

Magnetic, vortex, and differential pressure (dP) flowmeters are the leading technologies used to measure volumetric flow or flow velocity. Know when to use each.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, April 25 to May 1, for articles published within the last two months.
