The direct and indirect impact of AI on sustainable growth

Article | March 3, 2020

The propagation of artificial intelligence (AI) is making a significant impact on society, changing the way how we work, live, and communicate. AI today is allowing the world to diagnose diseases and develop clinical pathways. It is also being used to match individuals’ skill sets with job openings and create smart traffic that leads to the reduction of pollution. There are many examples of applying AI technologies in the sustainable growth of the planet and organisations. It is time to solve some of the world’s biggest problems with emerging technologies such as AI.

How EV Chargers Help Campus Energy Ecosystems Evolve

Article | March 3, 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.

What does Covid-19 mean for Renewable Energy?

Article | March 3, 2020

Covid-19. It’s everywhere, and it’s probably the reason that your food cupboards are unusually more stocked than usual, or the fact that you’re likely reading this blog from the confines of your own home, as opposed to at your office or during your daily commute. But, despite the impact to business, economies, daily life and public health, there’s one bittersweet development which we can all take away from the outbreak – and that’s the considerable reduction of global CO2 emissions, and a resurgence of hope that it is fully possible for us to slow the onset of climate change and preserve our planet for future generations.

How heat can be used to store renewable energy

Article | March 3, 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.
