SimpliPhi Power, Inc.

SimpliPhi Power is a growing and innovative technology company that designs, builds and sells a portfolio of intelligent, non-toxic, efficient, energy dense storage and management systems that seamlessly integrate renewable energy in conjunction with or independent of the GRID. Without energy storage, renewable sources of power are intermitant and unpredictable, as is the GRID in emergency and black out scenarios in which the centralized delivery of power breaks down.

OPTIMIZING COGENERATION POWER PLANTS TO MANAGE RENEWABLE ENERGY EFFICIENTLY AND ECONOMICALLY

Article | February 11, 2020

A cogeneration, or Combined Heat and Power (CHP), plant uses a heat engine or power station to produce electric and thermal energy simultaneously from a single fuel source. A primary benefit of using a cogeneration system is that it can capture thermal energy for heating that is otherwise wasted in a conventional power plant. Utility companies today face the challenge of transitioning to the utilization of renewable energy for both electricity production and district heating systems.

Renewable Energy Could Power the World by 2050

Article | February 21, 2020

Virtually all the world’s demand for electricity to run transport and to heat and cool homes and offices, as well as to provide the power demanded by industry, could be met by renewable energy by mid-century. This is the consensus of 47 peer-reviewed research papers from 13 independent groups with a total of 91 authors that have been brought together by Stanford University in California. Some of the papers take a broad sweep across the world, adding together the potential for each technology to see if individual countries or whole regions could survive on renewables.

How to Develop the US Offshore Wind Supply Chain

Article | March 10, 2020

In the longer term it is obvious that having significant manufacturing capacity in coastal US states makes more sense than making components elsewhere and sending them on long sea journeys to their installation site. However, in the short term the sector will require a great deal of imported machinery and skills. International free trade has been instrumental in creating a positive marketplace for offshore wind, by driving down costs and accelerating growth. Unfortunately, this has had contrary effects on local prosperity, where areas do not receive the benefits of investment. Public and political support for offshore wind developments can therefore be undermined.

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.
