Tackling climate change means changing the ways we produce and use energy. As a signatory to the Paris Agreement, Canada re-committed to reducing its carbon pollution by 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. Further, Canada recently committed to become carbon neutral by 2050. This is aligned with the findings of the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, which state that global emissions must come down to zero by 2050 to keep dangerous climate change in check.

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.

Are Solar Workers ‘Essential’? The Industry May Soon Find Out

Article | March 23, 2020

The U.S. solar industry is preparing to argue that its workers are essential to the economy as it copes with a growing pile of government-mandated shutdowns to combat the spread of COVID-19. State-, county- and city-wide shutdowns, which are already in place in California, the nation's largest solar market, as well as New York and Dallas County, Texas, largely called for employees of “nonessential” sectors to stay home; the orders now cover about 20 percent of U.S. residents, according to the New York Times.

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.

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.
