Nations in Southeast Asia are working to balance energy security, environmental sustainability and economic competitiveness at a time when the financial sector is looking for bankable energy projects in which to invest. The region’s industrial growth in recent years has encouraged economic growth and urbanization that has expedited its consumption of energy.
Electric utilities are awakening to the power afforded by dynamic advances in technology
With their infrastructure graying and renewable energy posing growing threats to their customer bases and bottom lines, electric utilities are awakening to the power afforded by dynamic advances in construction, from the deployment of drones to innovative construction practices. Amid the prospect of a continued shift to decentralized, digital grids and the broadening appeal of increasingly affordable solar power systems, electricity suppliers no longer have the luxury of resisting change or delaying the adoption of next-generation power delivery.
Schneider Electric has partnered with grocery store chain, Lidl, to deliver Finland’s largest industrial microgrid and an advanced IoT-enabled building automation system for Lidl’s new distribution center in Järvenpää, Finland.
The unique distribution center that will cover a surface of 60,000 m2, the largest in Finland and equivalent to 10 football fields in size, will serve Southern Finland’s grocery stores and fully start operations at the beginning of 2019.
Smart microgrid: 100% renewable energy sources for a carbon-neutral environment
Gas producers in U.S., overseas markets scurry to satisfy surging demand for cleaner, greener power
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., November 13, 2018/3BL Media/ – Demand from increasingly thirsty energy markets is stoking near-term optimism for natural gas investment, as plentiful supply and innovative liquified natural gas (LNG) solutions help governments elevate the energy source to the center of their clean power goals.
Emerging industries depend on government support to grow, but they may be seen as threats to an incumbent industry, and they need to prove their technical feasibility and market promise. So how do emerging industries garner government support? A group of researchers led by former Erb Institute Postdoctoral Fellow Panikos Georgallis set out to demystify the conditions under which emerging industries get government support.
Environmental initiatives frequently outshine the very communities they were designed to assist. But that need not be the case. A recent project by flooring manufacturer Mohawk Industries demonstrates the potential to facilitate social empowerment and positive environmental impact continuously cultivated through “handprints” — initiatives that give more back to people and communities than they take, while helping minimize overall carbon footprint.
