California Rooftop Solar Mandate to Boost Sales 14% Over 4 Years

California made national news this week in becoming the first state to require that solar be installed on virtually all new homes. The California Energy Commission approved the proposal on May 9, as part of an update to the state’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards. The codes apply to all new residences and major home renovations on buildings under three stories, beginning in 2020.

These 20 Water-Stressed Countries Have the Most Solar and Wind Potential

Most power generation consumes water, whether to cool steam in thermoelectric plants or power turbines for hydropower. And the global demand for both water and electricity will continue to increase substantially in the coming decades. Although growth is generally a good thing for the economy, it challenges nations—particularly ones that are water-stressed—to better manage their limited water resources and invest in the right energy systems.

IoT research: 4.5 Billion 802.15.4 mesh devices by 2023

“Illustrated by the 802.15.4 integration in Amazon’s Echo Plus, IoT innovations are proliferating due to low-cost multi-protocol chips,” said Mareca Hatler, ON World’s research director. “This has accelerated growth for 802.15.4 chips and modules that are increasingly being used in multi-protocol devices that use Zigbee, Thread and Bluetooth Low Energy.” Half a billion 802.15.4 mesh chips have been sold for smart homes and buildings, metering, smart cities, industrial automation and other IoT markets.

Smart city IoT platform evolutions: winning strategies for evolving city needs

It isn’t just a matter of a crowded market though. As IoT platforms have become essential parts of the IoT technology and systems stack for several reasons we tackled before and as IoT projects are becoming larger, more integrated, more mature and more driven by specific needs defined by the context and use cases, with a dominant role for Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 applications, the more vertical approach – that is not new of course – makes sense.
