DALI Alliance defines gateway specs to Bluetooth and Zigbee wireless networks

“The standardized gateway between DALI lighting products and Bluetooth mesh lighting control networks will further accelerate the adoption of advanced IoT-enabled intelligent lighting systems,” said Mark Powell, CEO of the Bluetooth SIG. “Providing valuable energy efficiencies and a more comfortable and productive experience for occupants, these sensor-rich lighting systems will also enable more efficient operation of other building systems, including HVAC and security.”

How bitcoin mining can support the energy transition

Bitcoin mining* often makes headlines because of the large quantity of electricity the process consumes. But there are opportunities for it to support the energy transition.

We have identified two key short-term opportunities for bitcoin mining in the US: first, as a highly predictable and scalable demand response asset; and second, to provide additional demand for cheap, under-utilised electricity generated by independent power producers and utilities.

1. Bitcoin for demand response

  • Speed to scale
  • Reliability and predictability
  • Sensitivity to electricity price incentives
  • 24/7 operations
  • Non time-sensitive computation

2. Bitcoin for under-utilised generation
