The electric vehicle market is performing better than ever before, averaging over 4,000 new registrations per month in 2017.
"Across the US, energy consumers are caught between two desires: protecting the environment while keeping energy costs in check," said Mitch Fane, US Energy Market Leader, Ernst & Young LLP.
Biomass energy is a hot topic in our current climate. While some operators build new biomass-fired boilers, others retrofit old coal-fired boilers to burn biomass. Alcali- and sulfide-induced corrosion, however, has become a problem for many boilers.
The neutrinovoltaic technology developed by the Neutrino Energy Group derives electrical energy from neutrinos, which are invisible particles that bombard the Earth in roughly equal numbers every moment of every day.
As many industry technology integrators are learning, energy management solutions should no longer be considered as an add-on after the project. Instead, this category should now be viewed as a necessary part of the infrastructure, along with the network and control system.
This technology allows a project to mitigate a lot of the typical pain points which are usually associated with solar ground mount installs making it faster and cheaper to install and with fewer assets required.
Adopting conscious capitalism does not mean that you can’t pursue profit. Rather, it focuses on profiting while considering the interests of all stakeholders (even the ones that can’t speak for themselves, like the environment).
