Integrated Power Electronics: The Road Merges

December 14, 2022

Integrated Power Electronics
As electric vehicles have rapidly matured, certain features that were never necessary for internal combustion engines have become critical to EVs’ operation: a power distribution unit; a battery disconnect unit; an electric vehicle supply equipment
(EVSE) controller; a battery management system; an onboard charger; a DC-to-DC converter. The trend is reminiscent of the growth in internal combustion engines’ electrical/ electronic architectures, where each feature required an electronic control unit — a separate box that took up precious space within a vehicle chassis. Every box needed its own software, its own connectors and its own housings, all of which resulted in added complexity and cost.

A Sustainable Vision For A Productive Future

whitePaper | January 20, 2020

Few industries impact global economic livelihood, societal functioning, and quality of life as significantly as the energy industry. Few industries face as many challenges. A number of daunting factors are again leading many inside and outside the energy industry to embrace renewable energy as a solution—or, perhaps, more accurately—a critical piece of the solution. Renewable energy sources are making inroads in our national energy mix, and that progress is likely to continue. It’s not a matter of whether the renewable energy market will grow, it’s how fast and by how much.

Cumulative Effects Analysis for Wind Energy Development: Current Practices, Challenges, and Opportunities

whitePaper | April 12, 2022

The increasing global deployment of wind energy has given rise to concerns about potential adverse effects on certain wildlife species and habitats. The United States and European nations use environmental impact assessments (EIAs) to evaluate the environmental effects of wind energy and inform wind energy planning, siting, and operational processes. A key component of the EIA is the cumulative effects analysis/assessment (CEA). CEAs consider the effects of a proposed development in the context of past, present, and future developments, as well as other (non-wind) activities.

Scaling up the American wind industry

whitePaper | January 16, 2023

With the enactment of the Inflation Reduction Act (“IRA”) in August 2022, the United States signaled its commitment to reducing emissions in line with the Paris Climate Agreement. The IRA’s reach extends across industries and, in particular, across energy technologies. Its primary achievement in the energy and climate space is the unprecedented provision of public incentives for clean energy deployment and manufacturing capacity. These incentives provide the necessary long-term certainty required by wind industry stakeholders to make large capital investments in the U.S. market, which will in turn create jobs and economic opportunities for communities across the country.

Greenhouse gas mitigation scenarios for major emitting countries

whitePaper | October 9, 2022

Our findings suggest that emissions are on the way to reach pre-pandemic levels. Of the 25 countries analysed, emissions under current policies have increased from 36.3-36.8 GtCO2e in 2020 to 37.2- 38.1 GtCO2e in 2021; this translates to a rebound of 2.5-3.5% since the COVID-19-induced emissions dip observed in 2020. Recent estimates of global CO2 emissions suggest a rebound of between 4.2% and 6.5% in 2021 (Davis et al., 2022; Jackson et al., 2022)
