In a recent development, DeepMind revealed that it has used AI to enhance wind energy production. Acquired by Google in 2014, DeepMind is now under Alphabet, Google’s parent company. In 2018, Google and DeepMind began the application of machine learning algorithms to generate 700 MW wind power. Further, the trials took place in the central United States. DeepMind’s Sims Witherspoon and Carl Elkin along with Will Fadrhonc from Google spoke about how it began in the United States. Also, they explained the working of the neural network and the way it was trained on historical turbine data and weather forecasts.

How heat can be used to store renewable energy

Article | March 27, 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.
