How can we apply emerging technologies to advance energy storage and renewable power sources, and make the world a more sustainable place? Paolo Fracas, CEO and Founder of Genport, explores the future of hybrid power sources, biofuels and energy storage.
Vital to a low carbon future, smart energy systems also form a central pillar of most smart city visions. But there is a yawning gap between the rhetoric and current practice that needs to be bridged if all the promised markets (for smart technologies, data analytics, control algorithms, demand response services) are to emerge and thrive.
The UK electricity grid is under stress, and at peak times, it's forced to use the oldest, most-pollutant and expensive power stations to meet the demand. Upside Energy has built a cloud service that coordinates thousands of batteries and thermal energy stores on domestic and small business sites to smooth the flow of energy across the grid. We spoke to founder Graham Oakes to learn more.
For World Cities Day, we asked Michael Bironneau, Head of Technology Development at Open Energi, a few questions to learn more about utilising data science and machine learning technologies in energy, how we can create a smarter grid, the political challenges we face, and more.
By 2020, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar will be cheap and easy to manage. Technological advances, environmental concerns and political backing will drive their adoption around the world. New Scientist and RE•WORK are holding the Reinventing Energy Summit, bringing together 250+ innovators, industry experts and world class research scientists to challenge the status quo and outline a new vision of for cleaner, smarter energy.
Energy, the world’s largest industry, is currently undergoing a revolution. A switch towards renewable energy sources from the traditional fossil fuels we have relied upon to advance industrial and economic growth is underway.
We're excited to announce a new event in collaboration with New Scientist! The Reinventing Energy Summit will explore the opportunities of applying AI and machine learning techniques to efficiently manage energy generation and consumption, predicting energy supply, smart grid management and operations, and much more.
A prototype house in Stuttgart uses a smart energy concept and self-learning controls to produce double the amount of energy it needs, from sustainable sources, while monitoring and benefitting the surrounding environment.
