The concept of total connectivity for utility and energy networks is relatively new, yet it has completely disrupted the way these industries operate. When Industrial IoT (IIoT) adoption picked up speed, it became a forcing function behind the demand for more connectivity. For the wind power industry, an IIoT network can connect even the most remote wind turbine or field asset, allowing it to be analyzed, acted upon and transmitted from anywhere in the network.

CalWave Power Technologies

CalWave Power Technologies provides a solution to harness the renewable power of ocean waves to produce electricity and freshwater. Our device is a novel Wave Energy Converter (WEC) that is simple and scalable. Our innovative approach was inspired by the ability of a muddy seafloor to effectively absorb over passing ocean waves within only a few wavelengths. Our patented solution operates submerged, allowing it to survive stormy seas while causing no visual pollution or posing any collision danger.

Renewable Energy Strategies in the Oil and Gas Sector

Article | February 13, 2020

Renewable energy is suddenly taking a very important role in the energy industry; especially solar and wind. In light of this, major players in the oil and gas industry have begun to position themselves for this forecasted energy transition. Major investments by the oil majors into renewable energy has called for the question of whether this is an indication that they are gradually transitioning into energy companies. Also, upon closer study of this trend, it is easy to classify the major players into leaders in renewable energy investment and slackers.

A wave of scientific breakthroughs is going to make solar energy cheaper than energy generated from fossils

Article | March 9, 2020

Human pollution such as burning fossil fuels has been causing global environmental change for decades. Climate change impacts leave us no time to hesitate before taking urgent actions towards a more sustainable life. Going solar can be one of these actions. Luckily, scientists all over the world work on new materials that are going to make solar panels cheaper and more efficient. Australian and Chinese engineers experiment with a crystalline structure perovskite. Though being rather promising, this material is also very fragile. That is why it is planned to be used in tandem with silicon panels, which are more durable.

ClearVue Solar Glass Greenhouse Officially Opened

Article | April 20, 2021

A high-tech greenhouse comprised mainly of solar glass generating electricity to help run it was officially opened yesterday in Western Australia. ClearVue Technologies Limited’s solar glass involves a nanoparticle interlayer and spectral-selective coating on the rear external surface that enables 70% of natural light to pass through while redirecting infrared and UV light converted to infrared to the edge where it is harvested by solar cells. ClearVue says each 1m2 of its window product is currently rated to generate 30 watts-peak of electric power, but also mentions a new-generation product with the proven ability to generate 40 watts peak per m2 to be available sometime this year.
