  • State of the Smart Grid Business in 2013

    Smart Grid sales across the world in the last 3 years at installed prices have grown by CAGR of approx. 35% and climbed to $36.5 billion in 2012. Given the general global economic demise during this period these figures are remarkable. However they include a steady flow of refurbishment business that has for more than 10 years incrementally improved and smartened up the control and reliability of ...

  • The Smart Grid ‘Acid Test’ – Accommodating Variable Renewable Energy (VRE)

    In the previous posts, we have discussed the need for the regulators and policy makers to develop a new framework on which to build Smart Grid. The next stage is to investigate how much VRE can be accommodated through Smart Grid. Maximising the amount of VRE that can be accommodated is the ‘Acid Test’ for Smart Grid. We are moving from a central system that provides consistent power ...

  • Solar fuels: how planes and cars could be powered by the sun

    Solar energy is the world’s most plentiful and ubiquitous energy source, and researchers around the world are pursuing ways to convert sunlight into a useful form. Most people are aware of solar photovoltaics that generate electricity and solar panels that produce hot water. But there is another thrust of solar research: turning sunlight into liquid fuels. Research in solar-derived liquid ...
