Ampyx Power

Our planet’s survival depends on a sustainable energy future. Existing technologies create progress towards this goal, but to accelerate the energy transition we must unlock additional sustainable energy sources. There's huge untapped potential from wind power at high altitudes. The Ampyx Power Airborne Wind Energy System (AWES) provides access to these higher and powerful winds using a compact tethered aircraft. Wind deployment now becomes economically feasible in more and new locations around the world, on- and offshore. By developing innovative, elegant, and material-reducing solutions, Ampyx Power will help meet tomorrow's energy needs.

How Artificial Intelligence is changing the Energy Sector

Article | April 9, 2020

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has gained relevance in many different fields of our life, using machine learning to analyse historical and new data in order to make predictions, improve control operation and perform tasks much faster than a human and with more efficiency. The energy sector is using AI to increase energy efficiency by reducing consumption, improving energy storage and grid stability, making predictions about energy consumption, to have more accuracy to find oil & gas and many other applications. When it comes to renewable sources, AI is improving the weather forecasts for the development of new plants and to make better planning of control & maintenance. Let’s take a look in some projects and how they are affecting the energy sector.

These solar-charged electric vehicles could change the world

Article | March 25, 2020

With people working from home and generally staying in spring 2020, publications around the world have reported on a significant decrease in air pollution. Wouldn't it be great if we could keep emissions low, even after the threat of Covid-19 has dissipated? One company is trying to make that happen. Earlier this week, The New York Times reported that traffic and air pollution have plummeted as cities shut down due to the coronavirus. While there are no silver-linings to the COVID-19 pandemic, our response to this crisis shows that we are capable of abrupt changes when the situation necessitates them. Perhaps we can even reverse climate change. A key factor in bringing this change will be altering the way we commute. One company, Aptera Motors, is trying to make this happen with solar-charged electric vehicles.

Leading the Way Forward for DER Grid Management

Article | April 5, 2020

Distributed energy resources (DERs) are changing the landscape for electric utilities. As adoption goes mainstream, utilities are shifting operating strategies and business models to accommodate DERs such as wind/solar generation, electric vehicles, battery storage, heat pumps and any controllable loads. Developed to provide a wide range of transportation and residential services as well as and energy efficiency, the volume of these devices continues to grow at a pace completely out of the control of electric utilities.

Is nuclear power the energy of the future?

Article | March 11, 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?
