New Tech Expands Distributed Generation’s Role in Greening the Grid (Part 2)

In Part 1, we looked at how industrial-scale distributed generating plants (typically hundreds of kilowatts to tens of megawatts), powered by renewable energy, are playing an important role in creating a new generation of more resilient, more sustainable power grids. We also saw that, regardless whether they make power from the sun’s distant rays or a nearby city’s sewage sludge, they’re still subject to the same technical requirements for regulating, conditioning, and distributing their output through the power grid as their larger fossil-fueled counterparts.

Here, we’ll take a closer look at how the equipment used in distributed generation systems must evolve to meet the industry’s changing requirements. While still undergoing some growing pains, distributed generation technologies are technically mature and well-defined enough whereby major utility operators, such as the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) and CPS Energy, have developed extensive standards that define

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Units of Macquarie Group MQG.AX and Siemens AG SIEGn.DE are forming a venture named Calibrant Energy, that will invest in the emerging energy-as-a-service (EaaS) sector in the United States, according to a joint statement on Monday.

Electricity generation is forecast to increasingly move away from traditional structures involving large fossil fuel-burning power plants, towards localized systems using renewable energy and battery storage, known as distributed energy.

For entities embracing this model, they can choose to ‘outsource’ their power systems to a specialist entity, in the same way firms hire technology platforms rather than develop their own systems – so-called software-as-a-service (SaaS).

Set up by Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, and

How Distributed Ledger Technology Can Enable Car Manufacturers to Overcome Market Challenges

By Holger Köther, Director of Partnerships at the IOTA Foundation

There is a massive evolution underway in the automotive industry.

To anyone who has purchased a new car or is at least paying attention to this industry, there is a clarity of vision that something big is coming. With the emergence of semi-autonomous vehicles, combined with a fresh generation of car buyers that expects technology integration as a natural part of daily life, we are at the forefront of a new era. The automotive industry, in hindsight, will likely view this type of tectonic shift as something that hasn’t happened since Henry Ford developed the mass production line in 1908. As with any emerging tech in any industry, with this new era comes new challenges, as well as new business models that will focus on how to address them.

As car manufacturers look for ways to stay competitive by providing
