This year the world passed 1-terrawatt of installed wind energy capacity with Canada coming in as the 9th largest contributor to that value. Hundreds of thousands of people are now employed in the wind industry globally, each contributing to the design, deployment, operation, and maintenance of power facilities, and creating new methods that support and advance the effective and efficient operation of these facilities. From adaptation to universal learnings to leveraging existing expertise in a local workforce, operational improvements are being actively discussed and pursued by the wind industry across the country, overcoming narrow and broad challenges alike.

The various impacts are occurring both now and into the future. Most changes don’t bode well for acting on climate change and transitioning to cleaner energy. Global carbon dioxide emissions are likely to drop this year, due to the global economy faltering. That’s not a silver lining to the novel coronavirus. It’s like a person who loses weight while sick. It’s a byproduct of a bad situation and by definition should and will not last. Indeed, since the Industrial Revolution, the world’s emissions have not gone down except briefly during economic crises. These incidents merely show how difficult it is to reduce emissions in an economically sustainable way.

Artificial Intelligence in the energy sector: opportunities and challenges

Article | March 25, 2020

AI is certainly the talk about the hour nowadays. In high-tech industry, AI is the one with most potential. But before proceeding and discussing further on this exciting technology, we’d like to first understand what AI means-: As power is being generated from more volatile sources like solar and wind, the requirement is that power generation must react intelligently to consumption (and vice versa). With AI, we can evaluate, analyse and control participants connected to each other via these smart grids. With modern day emphasis on climate changes and increasing pressure to reduce CO2 emissions, we must find ways to have most of our power generated from renewable resources. The problem with renewable sources of energy are that they are unpredictable, which makes production of energy periodical and sometimes even chaotic. With renewable sources, there can be power outages or too much power generation which needs to be controlled. Smart storage, also known as Intelligent Energy Storage(IES) can effectively handle these disrupt changes in power supply.

2020 Trends That Will Make Waves In The Energy Industry

Article | February 10, 2020

In the renewable world, energy is generated by weather and the amount of energy that can be produced depends on the current conditions. Energy storage can ensure a power supply is maintained when weather conditions are not optimal for generating energy. While energy storage products have already been introduced to all levels of the market there are several technology hurdles to overcome before energy storage will reach maximum potential. We believe there will be great advancements in 2020 on:

ADVANTAGES OF RENEWABLE RESOURCES AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Article | March 19, 2020

This article explores the benefits of renewable energy classified into a variety of types that includes solar energy solutions, hydroelectric, wind, geothermal, and biomass. Mostly, Wind Turbines and Solar Panels are essential to every area as it increases the health value of a community. Promoting health benefits is highly recognized as it can boost a possibility that can turn around the capability of the non-renewable as it will be more efficient and environmental. However, some things could lead to advrerse outcomes, such as losing revenue coming from known industries, but on the contrary, lots of positive impacts that will generate significant improvement. The following indicates the advantages and how it is promoting energy efficiency in society.
