Belleville, New Jersey (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
One of the industry’s most sought-after cogeneration energy experts, Paul Errigo, is scheduled to speak at the IREM Asset & Management Symposium, March 11, 2014. The popular one-day event will bring together over 300 of New York’s Property and Asset Mangers of both office and multifamily buildings at the New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.
The IREM Asset & Property Management Symposium is known industry-wide as the only New York-centric event focusing on the performance of buildings, portfolios and staff. Errigo, director of business development for GREENCROWN Energy LLC, calls it an ideal opportunity to outline the latest developments in cogeneration energy (CHP).
“Momentum is rapidly building for cogeneration in New York, New Jersey and all over the East Coast,” he said. “Once building owners and building management professionals are apprised of the facts concerning cogeneration – and how cost-effective it’s become provide electricity, heat, and cooling – we always have an attentive and receptive audience.”
Errigo will be representing GREENCROWN Energy LLC — a leading full-service energy consulting company specializing in energy supply cost reduction and turnkey cogeneration systems development. “With rising energy prices, the ever-present sector of blackouts and potential problems with the U.S. Grid, and the available government incentives to install, now is the ideal time for building professionals to consider CHP to provide electric and thermal energy in their facilities,” he said.
According to Errigo – who is an active member of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) CHP Partnership Program, NYARM, U.S. Green building Council, HFMA and other organizations – Cogeneration is a cost-effective solution to escalating energy costs and the unpredictability of the Grid. “Today’s CHP technology has progressed to the point where almost any building in the city can accommodate its own Cogeneration Plant,” he pointed out. “Once we show them the many financial and environmental advantages of CHP, most professionals are enthusiastic to take the next step.”
Errigo says that one of the most convincing numbers that “always gets everybody’s attention” is the amount of money that Cogeneration can save a business. “On average, CHP can actually slash total energy costs by 40 to 60 percent,” he pointed out. “Plus, building owners no longer have to worry about or deal with costly and potentially dangerous power outages — which is of paramount concern to high rise residential properties and hospitals, for example. We are typically also able to leverage government incentives and strategic partnerships to further maximize savings through various strategies and special programs.”
He also believes it’s vital to make cogeneration available and affordable to all building owners and management. With affordability in mind, he said that Green Crown Energy initiated what they call a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). “This popular new program enables building owners to enjoy all of the benefits of Cogeneration with absolutely no capital outlay or ongoing operating costs," he said. “The client pays only for the energy used, which is huge for cash flow, budgeting and forecasting. And it’s especially well- suited for high-rise residential buildings, hospitals, nursing homes, manufacturers, schools and universities… because many of them cannot use the tax incentives available.
“When you consider that the most efficient power plants in the country operate at about 60 percent efficiencies, and that CHP systems achieve efficiency rates of 80 percent and higher, Cogeneration practically sells itself,” he adds. “Professionals are amazed how easy and cost-effective it’s become to turn wasted heat into useable energy through CHP, which means they can finally rid themselves of out-dated boilers. And cogeneration is a no-brainer for buildings interested in backup power and lessening their carbon footprint.”
Errigo adds that for those professionals not attending the IREM Asset & Management Symposium, that GREENCROWN Energy LLC is always available to share its expertise on the topic. “All a building owner or professional has to do is go to Greencrownenergy.com, and from there it’s easy to reach us.

Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
7Summits, a social business solutions provider, has become a leader in social business gamification, thanks to their pioneering work with several Fortune 500 companies. 7Summits recently implemented a successful gamification strategy with Hitachi Data Systems and has published a white paper on the subject.
Gamification, the application of game-like elements to non-game environments, was one of the top business trends of 2013 and is continuing to gain momentum in 2014. Gamification uses game mechanics and game design techniques to engage employees and customers, in order to influence behavior, develop skills, and drive innovation. Many gamification models feature badges, leaderboards and points systems to keep participants engaged, drawing on tactics popularized in gaming. These tactics comprise a larger opportunity for driving measurable change and positive transformation in organizations.
While game-like incentives have a long history in various industries, such as customer loyalty cards and frequent flyer miles, it was only recently that the trend began to take off as a major business objective across all industries. Today’s popularity of gamification is due in part to Generation Y coming of age after growing up amid exposure to more complex game elements, as detailed in 7Summits’ white paper, Critical Elements of Gamification.
While traditional forms of marketing have begun to lose effectiveness, gamification succeeds by providing users with immersive and interactive experiences. Gamification is capable of driving business results by transforming customers into brand advocates, building buzz for the brand, and increasing employee engagement and productivity for businesses in any industry.
“7Summits develops comprehensive social strategies that include gamification to drive measurable results,” said Rob Murray, Senior Vice President of Business Development for 7Summits. “By incorporating gamification into a community, we are able to help our customers activate and engage users in a more meaningful way and reap tangible business benefits, such as increased customer loyalty, employee productivity and time spent on site.”
An effective gamification strategy incorporates intrinsic and extrinsic motivators to guide user behavior. All users have unique motivations and will want to participate in varying ways. Effective game mechanics ensure there are multiple reasons to participate and numerous ways to reach the final goal.
Gamification can also help drive adoption of an online community by encouraging user participation and building a community of action.
“Companies should capitalize on people’s natural proclivity for competition to generate stronger results in user adoption,” said Paul Stillmank, CEO of 7Summits. “7Summits can enable rapid adoption of any business process with these techniques, minimizing productivity loss.”
7Summits recently created two social communities for Hitachi Data Systems, using gamification to enhance both employees’ and customers’ interactive experiences. The internal community features employee missions and digital badges that encourage interaction, and the external community incentivizes customers to help each other with support issues, lowering customer support costs for Hitachi.
Forward-thinking companies understand the potential of game mechanics to drive measurable business value and user behavior, but are still learning how to properly implement them. Download the white paper to learn more about the critical elements of gamification and how 7Summits can implement a gamification strategy for your organization.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
The prescription drug safety center DrugNews.net is announcing updated information on the site for patients taking testosterone replacement therapies, or “low-T” drugs. A new study concludes the current testing methods may result in inaccurate prescription levels of the drugs*.
The report comes as the FDA has announced it will investigate the risk of heart attacks, stroke and death from low-T drugs based on recent data**.
DrugNews is a free resource for patients taking popular prescription drugs. By sharing the latest drug warnings, product recalls and lawsuit news, visitors can see if others are experiencing similar side effects, avoid potential dangers and decide if they need legal advice.
Last year, more than 5.5 million men filled prescriptions for low-T drugs like AndroGel, Axiron and AndroDerm***. However, recent studies question their safety.
The resource center has added a study from UCLA and the National Institute of Health finding men over 65 and those with a history of heart disease had double the rate of heart attack after starting testosterone therapy****.
In November, the American Medical Association also released data showing older men or those with prior heart disease had a 29% increased rate of heart attacks, stroke or death from low-T drugs*****.
Now, DrugNews has learned a new study by Weills Cornell Medical College questions the current methods of testing for low testosterone, and concludes that low-T drugs may be under or over-prescribed as a result*.
A number of men have already filed a testosterone lawsuit in federal court alleging drugs like AndroGel caused heart attack or stroke without warning***. Lawyers are offering help to those affected.
Anyone who suffered a heart attack or stroke after using a low-T drug like AndroGel, Axiron or AndroDerm is urged to visit DrugNews or speak with a lawyer about their legal rights as soon as possible. DrugNews only recommends lawyers who have already handled testosterone lawsuits.
