“How would renewable energy be beneficial to Pakistan?”

 

As it stands, the nation of Pakistan currently imports large portions of its energy from other countries. But like many things, this can be solved with the use of renewable energy. Since wind and solar power would be generated right on Pakistan’s own territory, it would be entirely owned by the nation. This is How Renewable Energy Would Help Pakistan’s Energy Security.

“How can we truly combine battery and grid power for buildings?”

 

With the advent of the new energy paradigm, building energy systems will become more integrated with solar+storage. Consequently, buildings must integrate that their energy with both the electric grid and storage mechanisms simultaneously. To serve as a model, Hybrid Electric Buildings are being created that can seamlessly integrate both sources in real time.

“How can we use data from buildings to make them better for the environment?”

 

The ascent of the Internet of Things is changing everything in its path, and the building sector is no different. With our newfound access to all sorts of building data, we can take much more control to ensure energy efficiency. Whether this means finding bottlenecks in the system, more optimal times to control HVAC systems or better building automation systems.

Puerto Rico Might Go 100% Renewable

“Will Puerto Rico go 100% in on Renewable Energy?”

 

Puerto Rico has faced a tough time with its energy infrastructure recently. Hurricane Maria has knocked out the vast majority of its power generation capabilities and has left much of the island in the dark. But that doesn’t mean Puerto Rico is going down without a fight. Taking inspiration from the proven evidence that solar energy will provide it with resiliency and California’s recent audacious climate goals, Puerto Rico might go 100% renewable!!! If policymakers decide to act upon this, then not only will Puerto Rico be transformed but perhaps the entire region around it.
