Just a short time ago, many would have predicted that falling oil and gas prices would have taken a big bite out of the market for solar and wind energy. But even with oil and gas prices at their lowest in more than a decade, renewable energy continues to grow. Wind and solar provide more of our power than ever, and last year companies who create clean energy attracted a record $329 billion in investment.

With a global pandemic in full swing, climate change is no longer the main emergency hitting the news. As countries all over world have introduced social distancing and isolation restrictions to limit the spread of the virus, carbon emissions have dropped as non-essential sectors have ceased their usual activities and travel has reduced as people stay at home. One estimate indicates that greenhouse gas emissions in Europe will drop by a staggering 24.4% this year, which equates to 388.8 million tons less carbon. We have seen a global drop in carbon emissions before following the most recent major financial crisis, however we must not forget that this was quickly followed by a 6% increase in global emissions in 2010.

Is nuclear power the energy of the future?

Article | April 3, 2020

It’s been nine years to the day since the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster: one of the worst nuclear accidents in history. This brings up memories of Chernobyl and other nuclear accidents that have played a part in the opposition to nuclear energy. However, there is still a debate on the merits and drawbacks. There are those who see it as a path forward to getting off of fossil fuels while others maintain that not only does nuclear energy pollute, but other risks are taken by developing this type of energy. This debate has been going on for decades since the birth of the atomic bomb. Yet, due to the threat of climate change, is nuclear power a viable option moving forward?

Key Benefits of Implementing AI in the Energy Industry

Article | April 3, 2020

Artificial intelligence is now influencing in every industrial sector. How wonderful it can be to extend the benefits of this technology across industrial sectors that are facing crisis and imbalance of demand and supply all over the world! Energy is one such crucial sector that impacts all the other industries as they use power for their operations. This explains why, according to a recent BIS research report, the global AI market in the energy sector is expected to reach USD 7.79 billion by 2024 (Source). Moreover, research is being done in this sector to find out how the non-renewable sources of energy can be preserved, without creating a shortage in supply for human consumption. The use of renewable sources of energy seems to be the only savior. But, there are several challenges in utilizing renewable sources of energy too!
