New York – “The Green Guide to Power” is a book that claims to offer companies and private users, as well as public agencies, resources to ensure that their future energy needs are met safely and securely. Written by Ronald H. Bowman, Jr., executive vice president of Tishman Technologies Corporation—a construction firm focusing exclusively on three key dimensions of mission critical facilities: strategic planning, construction/expansion/retrofitting of mission critical facilities, and energy solutions—the book has been ranked #1 in the energy category on Amazon.com and #16 in both the environmental and oil and energy categories.
In “The Green Guide to Power: Thinking Outside the Grid ,” Bowman explores the

Green Guide to Power

Bowman explores the environmental impact of power plants and distribution lines.

environmental and ecological impact of our current network of power plants and distribution lines and offers solutions on what all Americans can do to reduce our dependency on an increasingly erratic and inefficient energy creation and distribution system that produces more CO2 emissions than any other sector, including automotive transportation.
The book explains the problems, conditions, and possible solutions to the power grid issue. By tackling a diverse list of issues impacting the present and future of energy creation—from the challenges of replacing the energy footprint of the 103 active nuclear sites across the country scheduled for decommissioning in the next 10 years, to the exponentially increasing power demands of mission critical data centers, to simple conservation measures—Bowman paints a picture of the rapidly changing energy demands of the 21st century and offers a guide for focusing on the issues and making strategic decisions that align with long-term goals and interests. Copies of the book can be purchased at www.amazon.com for $24.50 plus tax and shipping.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
