Energy Storage & Extreme Weather

September 10th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Imagine this scenario for a moment: It's a nice day out. The sun is shining beautifully and you're at the beach. You can feel the sand between your toes, the gentle breeze carrying the scent of salt to your nose as it passes through your hair. The water is gently flirting with the shore in happy, foaming waves that bring pieces of wood, rocks, and the occasional fish before retrieving back into her embrace. It's cool, a sensual contrast to the warm sand, as it washes over your feet


Cloud Data Centers Have A Little (Dirty Air) Secret

December 19th, 2018 | by Nicolas Zart

File it under the "you'd never thought of it unless you knew how energy backup data centers work." We rarely talk about data centers and the amount of energy they use, nor how it's used. What we talk even less about is how their backup data center generators work, are maintained, and are powered on a monthly basis. Hold onto to your hats, because it's a stinky business


Solar PV & Remote, Distributed Microgrids Poised to Improve Living Conditions for Millions

January 4th, 2012 | by Andrew

The integration of solar photovoltaics (PV) into remote microgrids will drive rapid growth in the market for such distributed, renewable energy-powered off-grid systems, according to a new market research report. The 80% of world population that resides in developing countries consumes only 30% of global energy supplies, but that's growing as these countries' economies develop. Able to be built and installed cheaply and in short order, solar PV-powered remote microgrids have the potential to literally and figuratively empower millions and protect the environment by providing them reliable, affordable access to clean, renewable electricity.
