Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Larry Hales, CEO of Hales Global, has received special recognition from the U.S. Department of Energy for his strategic input on the DOE's Water Heating Technologies Roadmap. This initiative establishes a set of high-priority research & development activities for water heating systems. The proposals address major, unfulfilled needs regarding the latest equipment and technology-related advancements, critical gaps in knowledge and tools related to efficient distribution systems, and market transformation activities.
Specializing in the identification of new and undiscovered business opportunities, Hales Global most recently helped its client Sidel Systems get listed on the DOE Efficiency Roadmap as an alternative energy source recommended for the coveted Energy Star designation. Hales Global brought Sidel Systems and the DOE together.
The DOE honor follows Hales Global's participation in the DOE's Building Technologies Program Roadmap development team, meeting in Berkeley, CA. Hales Global participated in the DOE's strategy conferences, along with participants including the A.O. Smith Corporation, General Electric Company, E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, and Southern California Gas Company.
The DOE team on this initiative includes the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
DOE has undertaken several successful roadmap efforts in recent years including the 2025 Solar and Efficient Water Heating Roadmap, the National Combined Heat and Power Roadmap, the Solid-State Lighting Research and Development Roadmap, the HVAC Roadmap, and the Next Generation Refrigerants Roadmap. These roadmaps have been successful in defining and implementing research and development activities that will lead to significant energy savings.
The DOE is on record as saying that reducing the energy/carbon footprint of federal government facilities is essential for tackling climate change and will be an enormous challenge. Working with Sidel Systems and the Hales Global team, federal facilities can post significant savings in utility bills while dramatically reducing carbon emissions by using Sidel's proprietary technology.
Hales Global is the go-to firm in Washington D.C. for companies like Sidel Systems that want to do business with the federal government and countries throughout the world. The consultants at Hales Global are sought after by federal and international officials, as well as entrepreneurs and company owners, for the team's ability to identify and capitalize on undiscovered business opportunities.
