As a leading sustainability, cleantech and renewable energy PR firm, FischTank PR is always keeping its eye on the news. Our clients are deeply rooted in innovation and disruption, and for us, knowing the right journalist to contact on their behalf means knowing that same journalists’s coverage area. Here’s a roundup of some environmentally friendly news:
National Science Foundation Invests $104 Million To Launch Four New Engineering Research Centers
“Center investigators will develop advanced agricultural technologies that will help improve farming practices, increase farm productivity, and contain waste and ecological consequences. The technology will range from miniature soil-based sensors to aerial and ground-based robots that can be networked along with data from weather reports and commodity markets.”
New Engineering Research Center to Focus on Agriculture Technology
“The overall mission of IoT4Ag is to ensure food, energy and water security by developing technology to increase crop production while minimizing the use of energy and water resources and lessening the impact of agricultural practices on the environment. Collectively, the IoT4Ag Center will also create a diverse talent pipeline consisting of K–12 and university students, engineers, agriculture professionals and other members of farming communities through audience-specific lessons and hands-on classroom, laboratory and field activities”
Battery Storage Is Delivering Value For Solar Developers And Energy Consumers. But What About Cost?
“But there is a fix: utilities and onsite generators are using energy storage to harness the electricity during the day and release those electrons at night. Those batteries not only can limit the price spikes but they can also add value to solar farms. The twin goals are to increase renewable power usage and to provide electricity during peak demand. But the main obstacle is the high price of storage.”
Enel X Energy Storage Modelling Tool sets industry standard for storage optimization, DNV GL finds
“Energy storage technologies are a major cornerstone to successfully increasing the penetration of renewables into the generation mix, and tools such as Enel X’s storage optimization software ensure that customers can confidently install storage and realize their decarbonization goals and utility bill savings,” commented Richard S. Barnes, region President Energy North America at DNV GL.”
Targeting future sustainable tech gets gold
“The prominent ones are renewable energy technologies like solar and wind. More recently in battery energy storage and things to do with smart grid. In the transport space, you’re talking about a paradigm shift towards electric vehicles which is an area of focus for us,” he said.”
