    The Energy Cloud  will offer not only electric power, but also intelligent management of power consumption and other value-added services to consumers on demand. This service-based approach will be driven by the sharp growth of distributed energy resources and renewables over the next few years, driven by an increase in customer choices and changing technology landscape.more...

    Power devices are essential in controlling electrical power used in all sorts of devices from electrical vehicles (EVs) to railroads to elevators. However when converting power from DC to AC there is substantial energy loss which can result in more generation needed and potentially more GHG emissions depending on the energy source. Also renewable energy sources such as solar and wind is typically creating DC power which needs to be converted to AC before use, again there is energy loss in thismore...

    Despite the fact that hydrogen ranks as the cleanest fuel possible—as a source of electricity its only byproducts are water and heat—its use as a fuel for electricity generation remains nominal. This is because hydrogen’s power has been difficult to leverage: it has the highest amount of energy per weight, but the least amount of energy by volume. Moreover, 95% of the hydrogen produced in the US, which is used almost exclusively for industrial purposes, comes from natural gas, and a largemore...

    Over the last two decades, global demand for carbon-free power has skyrocketed, and this trend shows no signs of letting up. In the US, about half of the states have renewable portfolio standards that mandate 15% to 25% of installed power generation come from renewable sources by 2020 or 2025. Wind and solar energy can provide part of that, but their intermittent nature requires them to be backed up by energy storage. While batteries get most of the press, another option already exists andmore...

    The global market for rechargeable storage has already reached roughly $60 billion globally, with a 10% compound annual growth rate anticipated through at least 2020.The top revenue driver in battery storage, at least in the short term, is the utility sector and its need to cope with a rapidly evolving power ecosystem. By 2035, non-hydro renewable energy will account for 20% of the power installed in the US, up from only 7% in 2016, but because of their intermittency, wind and solar systemsmore...
