As IoT deployment ramps up with 5G connectivity, devices will need to be even more energy-smart despite 24/7 operation.
When designing portable IoT devices, battery life is a key concern.
Device designers need to identify the critical events that contribute to power consumption and how frequently those events happen. They also need to make design changes or trade-offs to optimize battery life.
Global power leader Cummins is working on three projects that use hydrogen production as a means to store renewable energy, a key issue for proponents of wind, solar and other low-carbon renewable energy sources.
Using renewable sources such as wind to produce hydrogen emits no greenhouse gases. Wind energy can be converted into hydrogen using an electrolyzer and utilized in several ways – from fuel-cell hydrogen trucks, buses and trains, to ships powered by liquid ammonia made from hydrogen, to a substitute for natural gas for heating homes.
La-Z-Boy Incorporated, a global leader in residential furniture, has finalized a 10-year resource-backed virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA), extending through the end of 2030, with AEP Energy Partners, a competitive energy subsidiary of American Electric Power. The agreement signifies a meaningful initiative as La-Z-Boy expands its environmental programs in its quest to reduce its carbon footprint.
Public sentiment has been hugely influential in our shift from fossil-fuelled power generation to clean and renewable energy sources. The question now is, how do we turn the tide on the mining sector’s “dirty” image and reveal how the mining supply chain and renewables can combine to limit global warming to at or below 2°C?
The mining sector is a significant contributor of greenhouse gas emissions.
Price, charging infrastructure and dirty battery production are limiting the impact of EVs, but look to fleet operations to lead the way to broader adoption.
