Automation is rapidly gaining momentum around the world. Many people talk about the advantages it can bring in aiding productivity and scalability. Those perks are important, but how might automation promote sustainability?
We already know that robotics can help protect our oceans in a number of ways, from improving wastewater treatment to improving fuel efficiency on ships. Thus, it makes sense that robotic assistance can have a positive impact on the sustainable energy sector.
The gap between the demand for clean water and the world's supply of it will only widen in the coming decades. Wildly inconsistent access to potable water sources is one major challenge in the world today when it comes to hydration.
Simply, waste heat is heat that is produced by a machine or an energy output process, as a byproduct of doing work. According to the laws of thermodynamics, all such processes give off some waste heat.
"Bleutech Park is paving the road for new developments with its forward thinking approach to putting public safety first by planning the integration of advanced technologies like autonomous security robots alongside the likes of power, water management and Internet service."
Atlantic will work with large land owners and real estate developers to develop communities and resorts that are designed, at their core, to deliver self-sustainable and highly efficient homes and resorts of the highest quality, with the added benefit of requiring minimal maintenance.
The Sustainable Cities Index from ARCADIS shows that among the top ten cities in the list, most are from Europe, while there are a few cities which are from Asia. Strangely, not a single city from North America makes it to the top-ten list.
Colocation is a growing trend within the energy industry. A recent study from the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory suggested that installing floating solar arrays on US hydroelectric plant reservoirs could become an important new source of electricity. Recent studies suggest that installing floating solar arrays on US hydroelectric plant reservoirs could become an important new source of electricity.
