Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Jon Chesto Globe Staff April 03, 2018 Homeowners could soon have a new reason to button their homes up tight: a bad grade on an energy-efficiency report card. Governor Charlie Baker on Tuesday filed legislation to require a home energy rating to be included in listings when a property is offered for sale. The bill, if approved by lawmakers, would make Massachusetts the first state in the nation with such a requirement. Advertisement Proponents say the bill could prompt homeowners to modernize their homes by adding insulation, replacing windows, or installing high-tech HVAC systems. But it’s also possible many sellers in a hot market would simply take their chances with the score cards — potentially the real-estate equivalent of a scarlet letter — without making improvements.

This story originally appeared on CityLab and is part of the Climate Desk collaboration. On a rainy day in New Orleans, people file into a beige one-story building on Jefferson Davis Parkway to sign up for the Low-Income Heating and Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), a federal grant that helps people keep up with their utility bills. New Orleans has one of the highest energy burdens in the country, meaning that people must dedicate a large portion of their income to their monthly energy bills. This is due in part to it being one of the least energy-efficient cities in the country. For many city residents, these bills eat up 20 percent of the money they take in, and the weight of the burden can be measured in the length of the line. “We’ve got folks wrapped around the block,” said Andreanecia Morris, the executive director of a housing advocacy non-profit called HousingNOLA. “There are people here paying 300, 400, 500 dollars a month. Some … [Read more...] about The Uneven Gains of Energy Efficiency
Considering that ARM's chip architecture is found in the vast majority of smartphones today, a new Android development kit issued by the Brits can only be welcome news. The DS-5 Community Edition kit promises up to 4 times faster application performance than Java code, and differs from Google 's own SDK and NDK in that it is optimized for energy efficiency. Coming straight from the source we've no doubt that the DS-5 CE code can lead to more power-thrifty applications and software on Android devices, and hope that developers will take a long and hard look into it when compiling for ARM-based chipsets. The kit lets you see processor-specific information, and includes its own graphics debugger. DS-5 CE is a plugin for Eclipse, and integrates with the Android SDK and NDK for those of you who into developing. Below is a video to help with the installation. source: ARM via SlashGear … [Read more...] about ARM launches own Android development kit for improved energy performance with its chipsets
The concept of having a phone's display partially on during stand-by isn't exactly new. Even back in the old days, when Symbian was still a thing, some Nokia models gave users the option to have a clock shown on screen when the handset wasn't in use. But always-on displays have never been touted as loudly as when Samsung and LG announced their 2016 flagship phones. Both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, as well as the LG G5, have always-on screen functionality to set themselves apart from their competitors. This lets users peek at the time or see if they have any pending notifications at their convenience, without having to wake their phone up.Now, we're not going to go into detail as to which company's always-on display is better from a purely practical, functional standpoint. Instead, we'll look into how much power the two solutions consume – a matter worth investigating, as we still live in a world where smartphone battery life leaves lots of room for … [Read more...] about Galaxy S7 vs LG G5 Always-On Displays: energy-efficient or power drainers?
