How heat can be used to store renewable energy

Article | February 25, 2020

The effect that fossil fuels are having on the climate emergency is driving an international push to use low-carbon sources of energy. At the moment, the best options for producing low-carbon energy on a large scale are wind and solar power. But despite improvements over the last few years to both their performance and cost, a significant problem remains: the wind doesn’t always blow, and the sun doesn’t always shine. A power grid that relies on these fluctuating sources struggles to constantly match supply and demand, and so renewable energy sometimes goes to waste because it’s not produced when needed.

The Digital Transformation of Wind Energy

Article | February 25, 2020

Transformation and how it is changing the world around us at an accelerated pace. We started the conversation with highlights on The Digital Transformation of Smart Facilities and The Digital Transformation of Smart Process Industries and examined the impact of digital transformation being seen in both the Foodservice and Process Industries. In the final installment our new video series, which features the Presidents of each mCloud line of business, we chat with Dave Weinerth (President, Smart Energy) on how digital transformation is impacting the wind industry. The wind industry, in regards to how they see digital transformation is really interesting. Wind turbines are in hard environments, they’re complex machines that spin-off a lot of data into hundreds of different channels and operators are just now getting a chance to delve into what can be done with that data with some of the tools that are available in the cloud, through artificial intelligence and additional sensors that they may want to put onto their machines to assess different aspects of performance.

Coronavirus’ effect on the renewable energy sector

Article | February 25, 2020

Both renewable power projects and conventional energy operations have felt the constriction of global supply chains, which are currently being limited in a global effort to fight and contain the spread of the virus. Many manufacturers of wind turbines and their critical components are based in Asia, such as Goldwind in China, as well as producers of photovoltaic panels and batteries (particularly lithium). Market reticence about bringing in products from affected areas has seen significant constriction in the importation of these materials and parts - the price of batteries has dropped by 60%, owing to the industry’s concentration in Asia.

ADVANTAGES OF RENEWABLE RESOURCES AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Article | February 25, 2020

This article explores the benefits of renewable energy classified into a variety of types that includes solar energy solutions, hydroelectric, wind, geothermal, and biomass. Mostly, Wind Turbines and Solar Panels are essential to every area as it increases the health value of a community. Promoting health benefits is highly recognized as it can boost a possibility that can turn around the capability of the non-renewable as it will be more efficient and environmental. However, some things could lead to advrerse outcomes, such as losing revenue coming from known industries, but on the contrary, lots of positive impacts that will generate significant improvement. The following indicates the advantages and how it is promoting energy efficiency in society.
