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.

Electric vehicles could turn solar households into autonomous energy units

Article | April 9, 2020

Many discussions abound on how Australia can reach renewable energy targets of 50 per cent and much more. Many experts believe achieving this goal will depend on the availability of a low cost, bulk energy storage infrastructure. Pumped hydro has received much attention in this regard. While technically feasible, bulk storage still requires transmission and distribution infrastructure that is not only costly but will take considerable time to implement. A far simpler and cost effective route is the bottom-up approach of turning each house into an autonomous energy unit. The use of solar panels in homes and small industry has proven to be remarkably successful.
