20150616 Американские энергетики готовятся к легализации

рубрики - ржака, международное оборзение.

Знакомился недавно с последними достижениями передовой капиталистической научно инженерной мысли в области энергетики и увидев анонс книги с многообещающим названием

"Big Data Analytics Strategies for the Smart Grid" http://www.amazon.com/Data-Analytics-Strategies-Smart-Grid/dp/1482218283/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

бывшего вице-президента Gartner (да да айтишники поймут - того самого гартнера со своими квадратами), а ныне главы ООО "МанифестМайнд" некой Карол Штиммель (Carol Stimmel),

решил подробнее посмотреть, что это за ООО такое и чем оно занимается, помимо "смарт грид стратегии".

Среди платных исследований компании есть и такое  - http://manifestmind.com/green-marijuana-grows/, где на 38 странницах расписываются (дословно) лучшие энергоэффективные практики по выращиванию марихуанны.

внутри рекомендации и прогнозы в том числе и для энергосбытовых и электросетевых компаний.

Вот весь аннонс.

The Greening of Marijuana Growing Operations: Best Practices for Energy Efficiency and Conservation in the Cannabis Industry

The United States is currently experiencing a radical transformation with respect to the legal status of marijuana – or in botanical terms, Cannabis. While some states have allowed for the medical use of cannabis since the mid-1990s, in 2012, two states legalized the recreational use of the plant. Colorado and Washington are now grappling with the complex issues related to the now booming cannabis market sector, not the least of which is the intense energy drain that legal grow-house operations put on the electricity grid. In Denver alone, industrial real estate brokers report that millions of square feet of industrial warehouse space is occupied by cultivation facilities. While illegal grow-house operations have been a problem for electricity providers for many years, it has been assumed that with legalization this problem will grow dramatically worse. This is arguably not the case.

This report by Manifest Mind demonstrates that this is actually a moment of opportunity for growers, energy-efficiency product and service vendors, and utilities alike. In fact, there are many viable solutions to the issue of grow-house energy demand that were simply not available under the specter of criminalized growing operations. This report will introduce the state of the industry, the fundamentals of the cannabis grow operation, techniques for managing energy demand, and best practices for applying these techniques directly for financial and environmental benefit.

"Инвестицонная (бу-га-га) стоимость" отчета - 344 доллара

Ну собственно "зеленая энергетика", что с них взять.

Если серьезно, они реально озабочены проблемой, выделил из анонса - "В Денвере риэлторы сообщают о миллиона квадратных футов индустриальной застройки занятой плантациями каннабиса" , ну и сама структура отчета показывает, что исследование не шуточное, с прагматичным америкосовским подходом:

Нет, Америку не победить, она сама быстрее развалится, чуток обождать надо.

Правда глядя на некоторые "проекты Сколково" или "инноваторов" оттуда возникает ощущение родства их душ с "американскими" оригиналами, но надеюсь наши внешние регуляторы "энергетики" с этим справятся.
