10 Ways BIM Is Improving Renewable Energy Efficiency

Building information modeling (BIM) is a new form of technology that helps the construction industry with planning and management. As renewable energy grows as a primary focus for buildings, BIM offers a key way to enforce that sustainability.

Producing Energy from Vibrations

Hypothetically, all vibration energy can be transformed into electrical energy; but there are certain types of vibrations that are preferred when the intent is to power a sensor or monitoring system. These vibrations need to have a steady vibration and a controlling frequency.

How Are Eco-Friendly Transformers Improving Renewable Energy?

The distribution of renewable energy throughout the electric grid requires a new take on transformers, and the solution is here. How can eco-friendly versions improve our clean energy efforts?

Is Wave Energy in Our Future?

The waves are converted into energy through turbines that are either placed on the surface or under the ocean. These turbines are activated by the force of water. They spin and produce energy, which is transmitted to the grid.

Reducing Renewable Energy Installation Risks

Renewable energy is rapidly emerging as an attractive choice for businesses and households alike. Any installation project poses potential safety risks. The goal is to minimize them to keep employees well-protected.
