How can we recognize the real power of the Internet of Things?

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to fundamentally shift the way humans interact with the world around them. IoT systems, which we define as sensors and actuators connected by networks to software, can monitor and manage connected objects, machines, and even living things. This rapidly advancing technology makes it possible to apply data-driven decision making to new realms of human activity.

Meet the microgrid, the technology poised to transform electricity

If we want a livable climate for future generations, we need to slow, stop, and reverse the rise in global temperatures. To do that, we need to stop burning fossil fuels for energy. To do that, we need to generate lots of carbon-free electricity and get as many of our energy uses as possible (including transportation and industry) hooked up to the electricity grid. Electrify everything!

‘Virtual big battery’ in Canberra turns 250 rooftop PV systems into lucrative grid resource

A 250-home ‘virtual big battery’ was switched on in Canberra, Australia last week, allowing residents to sell solar-generated power at a significantly higher price than available to them through feed-in tariff (FiT) policies. In the past couple of weeks, mentioning Australia and energy storage in the same sentence was likely a reference to Tesla powering up its 100MW / 129MWh lithium-ion system in South Australia. However, the Canberra project was being referred to as householders’ own ‘big battery’.

Decisión de EE.UU. sobre neutralidad de la red, limita el Internet libre e igualitario: MinTIC

El Ministro de Tecnologías de la Información y las Comunicaciones, David Luna, informó este jueves que la decisión adoptada por la Comisión Federal de Comunicaciones de Estados Unidos (FCC) de poner fin a la neutralidad de la red, limita el Internet libre e igualitario. "La neutralidad de la red está consagrada en la Ley colombiana desde el año 2011, es por eso que no compartimos dicha decisión", explicó el Ministro Luna.

Vestas desarrollará soluciones de almacenamiento de energía eólica con el fabricante de baterías Northvolt

La multinacional danesa -primer fabricante de aerogeneradores del mundo- y la empresa Northvolt -fundada el año pasado por un equipo de expertos en almacenamiento de energía- anunciaron el viernes un acuerdo de colaboración tecnológica cuyo objetivo es "el desarrollo de una batería de litio ión para las instalaciones eléctricas de Vestas". El fabricante danés de aerogeneradores va a invertir, en la primera etapa de este proyecto, diez millones de euros.
