Over the past decade, renewable energy has been developing rapidly. Since 2011, in the global power sector alone, renewables have accounted for more than half of all capacity additions. Increasing deployment and technological innovation have led to sharp cost reductions and improved cost-competitiveness for solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind, in particular.

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.

The Best Ways to Utilize Renewable Energy

Article | April 9, 2020

Energy plays an important role in our daily lives. Shifting to renewable sources of energy to support climate change offset is an outstanding solution that must be persistently followed, to meet the future generations’ energy needs. The world will never stop consuming renewable energy. As each nation grows and develops as a community, its needs for power increases. It’s a natural process. But that doesn’t alter the fact that our world is impacted by it. More resources on the planet are being used and converted into fuel. Reliable energy supply is essential in industries such as heating, illumination, industrial equipment, transport, etc.

Solar Panel Direction, Orientation and Tilt Factors

Article | April 9, 2020

For anyone who has owned solar panels in the past, or even many considering solar power installation in the near future, it’s generally understood that direction is important in this field. Specifically, the ability of solar panels to point south, where they will receive the maximum possible sunlight and therefore create the maximum amount of energy, is vital for many solar panel installations – but it’s important to realize that the simple direction of the panels is not the only important variable here. At Intermountain Wind & Solar, we’re happy to offer both commercial and residential solar panel installation services, including the utilization of the Tesla Powerwall battery backup. We assist our clients with every part of solar panel installation, including important directional and related themes that will play a role in how much sunlight your panels are able to soak up. Today we’ll focus on some of the important variables here, including why south-facing panels are the optimal approach plus several other basic factors to keep in mind when it comes to maximizing panel positioning and direction.

More Solar Ready To Help Power Pumping For SA Water

Article | April 9, 2020

SA Water’s electricity supply is about to become greener and cheaper again with the addition of another major solar power system, and an even bigger installation to soon follow. The utility says more 7,300 solar panels installed at the second pump station on its pipeline between Swan Reach and Stockwell are now connected and ready to go. “The Swan Reach to Stockwell Pipeline spans across more than 50 kilometres inland from the mighty Murray across to the northern Barossa area, and therefore requires significant energy to pump clean, safe drinking water across such large distances,” said SA Water’s Nicola Murphy While the total capacity of this new solar farm wasn’t provided, Ms. Murphy said it will generate approximately 5,224 megawatt hours of clean, green energy annually. There’s more solar energy to come for this section of pipeline, with a further 16,000 panels currently being connected at the first pump station.
