Today’s energy landscape is changing. There is a global energy transition underway in which renewable energy sources, led by wind and solar power, will ultimately replace legacy thermal generation. Falling supply costs, coupled with technology innovations in energy storage, software, and automation, are facilitating this change. In 2015, the State of Hawaii became the first state in the U.S. to legally commit to a 100 Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). The 100 percent RPS law requires power utilities in the state to procure 30 percent of their energy from renewables by December 31, 2020, 70 percent by December 31, 2040, and 100 percent by December 31, 2045. As of 2018, Hawaii meets 28 percent1 of its energy demand from renewable energy and California meets 34 percent2 of its energy demand from renewable energy

How Solar Helps the Environment

Article | February 25, 2020

Despite advances in technology, the world is still heavily dependent on fossil fuels like coal and oil for energy production. Our lifestyles require a lot of electricity running through our homes, but fossil fuels are finite and will eventually run out. Sunshine, on the other hand, is plentiful and will not run out anytime soon. We can make the decision today to switch to a cleaner and smarter energy solution by using solar panels to power our homes. Here are some of the top ways solar energy is better for the environment.

More Solar Ready To Help Power Pumping For SA Water

Article | April 29, 2021

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.

The Best Ways to Utilize Renewable Energy

Article | March 29, 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.

The Digital Transformation of Wind Energy

Article | March 16, 2020

Transformation and how it is changing the world around us at an accelerated pace. We started the conversation with highlights on The Digital Transformation of Smart Facilities and The Digital Transformation of Smart Process Industries and examined the impact of digital transformation being seen in both the Foodservice and Process Industries. In the final installment our new video series, which features the Presidents of each mCloud line of business, we chat with Dave Weinerth (President, Smart Energy) on how digital transformation is impacting the wind industry. The wind industry, in regards to how they see digital transformation is really interesting. Wind turbines are in hard environments, they’re complex machines that spin-off a lot of data into hundreds of different channels and operators are just now getting a chance to delve into what can be done with that data with some of the tools that are available in the cloud, through artificial intelligence and additional sensors that they may want to put onto their machines to assess different aspects of performance.
