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.

Reusable Decision Logic for Renewable Energy Sources

Article | March 25, 2020

In the second post in this series, which began by analyzing the opportunities in renewable energy, we'll see how—without code—you can use business rules as an architectural layer to help justify any solar lending project. In part one of this series, I outlined a few of the considerations for community and regional financial institutions (CRFIs) that are considering entering into solar and other renewable energy source lending markets. Next, I’m going to explore a few of the ways that lenders can help prospects to economically justify these projects with Progress Corticon, the digital decisioning software engineered to manage complex rules and calculations, integrate with a countless big data sources, and implement it all without writing a line of code.

ADVANTAGES OF RENEWABLE RESOURCES AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Article | March 25, 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.
