Yankee Scientific: The Practice of Ingenuity

Gas and Electric utilities are routinely confronted with new technology options for production, for transmission, and applications by their customers. Yankee assists energy utilities in these areas by technology assessment, demonstrations, and tests. Of particular relevant is our experienced in remote sensing and monitoring of distributed energy systems. Yankee welcomes the opportunity to discuss how we can help energy utilities maintain, improve, and expand their operations while meeting important efficiency and conservation objectives.
Case Study
Installation and Monitoring of Micro-Combined Heat and Power Systems
Energy utilities have a strong interest in understanding the performance characteristics of alternative energy systems deployed in their systems. In response, Yankee has developed software and communications systems for remote monitoring of residential energy appliances. We have applied this Internet based monitoring technology in equipment demonstration programs for a number of energy utilities interested in the field performance of micro-combined heat and power systems.
Case Study
Assessment of Power Plant Air-Preheater Options
An association of large electric power plant owners was interested in determining the relative merits of the new combustion air preheater technologies that had emerged onto the market. With a good understanding of fossil steam plant operations, Yankee engineers surveyed the actual field performance of heat pipe and other advanced air heater designs and provided recommendations to the client concerning their application and use.
