Major shifts — including new technology, rising oil prices and a changing climate — are encouraging investors to look to new energy sources. In 2020, power consumption and the industry as a whole is expected to grow significantly.
According to the IEA, renewable share in power generation is projected to grow to 40% by 2040. Furthermore, rising demand for effective load management and continuous power supply will enhance the product penetration.
Envisioned as a "living laboratory," the Woven City will serve as a home to full- time residents and researchers who will be able to test and develop technologies such as autonomy, robotics, personal mobility, smart homes and ai in a real-world environment.
Thermoelectric materials have long held the potential to provide clean alternatives for current energy sources. Efficient energy sources are becoming crucial due to the environmental damage sustained from rising greenhouse gas emissions.
Per unit of energy, biomass power plants emit more carbon dioxide from their smokestacks than coal plants. And cutting down older trees and replacing them with saplings reduces the amount of carbon stored in that forest, even under a best-case scenario.
Compared to the average cost of just one site visit and one change order - which, conservatively, can total $500 or more - an EagleView Inform™ report returns more than five times the investment in cost savings for a project.
Onshore wind power in the U.S. officially passed 100 GW in October of this year. Looking forward, the Energy Information Agency also expects that a record breaking 14.3 GW of wind will come online in 2020.
