Toyota used AI to supercharge EV battery development and saved years of effort

Article | February 28, 2020

Scientists and researchers around the world are increasingly turning to Artificial Intelligence (AI)and so called Robo-Scientists to help them discover everything from new anti-biotics and drugs, through to new spray-on solar panel materials and vaccines, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that AI is now being used to help develop new battery tech. “In battery testing, you have to try a massive number of things, because the performance you get will vary drastically,” said Ermon, an assistant professor of computer science at MIT, referring to how scientists traditionally hunt for new battery breakthroughs, and who led the new project to use AI to help them develop new promising batteries for Electric Vehicles.

Coronavirus’ effect on the renewable energy sector

Article | February 28, 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.

Solar energy can help tackle climate change

Article | February 28, 2020

Homeowners, commercial and industrial businesses have started choosing solar energy over conventional sources of energy in India. The explosive adoption is a result of affordable solar modules, Government schemes and policies that are accelerating the growth of renewable energy. Solar energy reduces the dependence and reliance on fossil fuels. Besides burning of fossil fuels for energy production has been one of the biggest culprits contributing to climate change. And, we have been doing it not just for years or decades but for centuries. Today, we have numerous environmental challenges that are directly influenced by human activity.

How EV Chargers Help Campus Energy Ecosystems Evolve

Article | February 28, 2020

Electric engines are incredibly efficient, getting useful work out of 85 percent of the energy that goes into them. Gas engines only get 30 percent, wasting a lot of the energy we pay to fill them up with. That one fact drives intense fuel cost savings for electric vehicles, a clear win for a campus shuttle and bus conversion. But switching from gas to electric also opens up a world of operational resilience, energy independence and sustainability — with the right implementation of electric vehicle charging technology.
