The efficiency of the power supplied by these renewable energy sources can be maximized when paired with an energy storage system. What better way to do than using the high-capacity energy storage system (ESS) solutions to meet the global energy requirement.
Google has paid US$94 million for a stake in four photovoltaic power generation projects around Sacramento, California, bringing its total investment in renewable energy generation this year to $880 million, it announced Tuesday.
Written by: David Heath | Published in: EnergyWave energy has long been seen as a viable solution for Australia's energy needs. This latest CSIRO study gives credence to that view and offers some advice on how to achieve it.
Waste-to-Energy is a process of converting waste to usable energy: electricity, heat, or combustible fuel. In North America, this conversion has traditionally taken place through the use of biogas (from landfills and anaerobic digesters) for electricity generation and direct combustion for heat production.
The instances of converting waste into combustible fuel have been scarce.
Google just announced yet another major investment in renewable energy. The company says that it has made a $200 million equity investment in an existing wind farm in Oldham County Texas. The Spinning Spur Wind Farm currently produces about 161 MW and uses 70 Siemens turbines to generate enough power for about 60,000 U.S. homes.
A smart grid uses analogue or digital information and communications technology to gather and act on information, such as information about the behaviors of suppliers and consumers, in an automated fashion to improve the efficiency, reliability, economics, and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity.
The information flows in the electricity cables, or with wireless commun
