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.

How Project Modeling Can Energize the Community Solar Market

Article | March 9, 2020

Community solar programs have the potential to greatly expand the market for solar energy and make the benefits of solar more accessible. However, growth of this sector is currently inhibited by uncertainty in project delivery costs. We sat down with Dr. Joseph Goodman of the Rocky Mountain Institute to understand this challenge—and how detailed design modeling capabilities can help overcome this barrier.

There's a Simple Way to Store Renewable Energy, And We Already Have The Technology

Article | February 26, 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.

Top 5 Things to Look For in a Sustainable Energy Partner

Article | March 12, 2020

Organizations worldwide are prioritizing renewable energy as a path to achieving increasingly ambitious sustainability goals. Many organizations are committing to 100 percent sourced renewable energy through initiatives like RE100. When sustainability goals are publicized, the stakes for achievement are high. Increasingly, consumers and stakeholders want details about environmental impacts. Setting sustainability targets coincides with the rapid evolution of conventional energy supply. However, the complexity of renewables and their potential impact on business operations remain a primary concern. Successfully navigating this new landscape calls for more than just a power supplier; an energy partner who understands your needs and commitments is essential.
