With over 20,000 solar professionals, 700 exhibitors, and more than 300,000 square feet of expo hall space, navigating North America Smart Energy Week can be a real challenge.
Due to lowering technology costs, public and private investments, and ethical pressure, the demand for green energy and corresponding jobs is rapidly increasing.
In this feature, Dr Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot, explores how AI might just hold the key to solving these issues, and the potential of this approach for the future of energy storage and EVs.
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.
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).
In this article, we'll discuss the average commercial building energy consumption per square foot, and tell how to measure and compare your own usage with other buildings in your industry. Let's get started.
Unlike banks, fees do not generate the economics of our investment returns. We look for long-term partnerships with our clients because we work side-by-side in understanding their business and helping them achieve their goals.
For most commercial buildings, energy is the single largest operating expense, most of which comes in the form of electricity. That being the case, the cost of utility-supplied power is of major concern to property managers searching for ways to lower costs.
It is much more efficient to add energy storage closer to the point of use; such as with homeowners, subdivisions, communities, small towns and cities.
As things stand right now, the wind energy industry isn't going anywhere but it will continue to struggle under these steel tariffs. If it costs more to build wind turbines, it will cost more to generate electricity and those costs will be passed on to the consumer.
Only 10% of energy used in the U.S. comes from renewable sources-mostly hydroelectric energy. Worldwide, 85% of the energy comes from non-renewable sources. These sources, such as oil, natural gases and coal, will eventually be depleted.
The Nebraska-based business FarmAfield recently made headlines by winning a $200,000 federal grant to explore the feasibility of PV-integrated shade structures for cattle feedlots.
