The future of energy is green and digital

in Project HOPE3 months ago
Greetings to all dear Project Hope community, I hope you are having a great start of the week.

As we have witnessed, our lifestyle requires more and more energy, especially in the current context generated by the pandemic and in the post-covid future where electricity is and will be critical to maintain connectivity and efficiency in working from home. And this reality highlights our concern about the increased emissions that are produced when generating energy and the impact this has on climate change. But the good news is that our society has become aware of the need for sustainability and that technology is the key to production and access to clean and sufficient energy, and important steps are already being taken towards an energy transition and digital transformation to build a more sustainable world.

And how is technology helping to achieve this transition to green energy?

We know that wind, solar, hydro and biomass are the renewable energies that are leading the way towards reducing emissions worldwide; and digital tools are joining the clean energy sector to achieve this goal and shape the future of energy, such as the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, which are being applied by several companies in their processes, in order to identify anomalies in photovoltaic power plants through algorithms, predicting weather conditions and even customizing service offerings according to customer profiles; wind power plants are also using big data to develop advanced wind prediction systems.

Other tools such as the internet of things allows the development of initiatives such as the Smart Home, which allows the customer to have greater control and decision on their energy consumption, even Blockchain technology is making its contribution, streamlining small-scale trade and make transactions with transparency, an example is applied by the company Iberdrola, which launched a pilot project based on the blockchain to ensure that the energy that is produced and consumed is completely renewable; Through this technology, the company was able to link the points where energy is generated with the points where it is consumed, making it possible to trace its origin and encourage the use of renewable energy.

As we see friends, technologies such as AI and blockchain are revolutionizing the renewable energy sector, allowing processes to be automated and providing a greater degree of traceability, which can lead to better resource management. Therefore, in order to achieve decarbonization in electricity production, not only will renewable energy sources be necessary, but digital tools will be key to ensure the sustainability and efficiency of this sector.


Thanks for coming by to read friends, I hope you liked the information. See you next time.

I once said that the era of burning fossil fuels is almost coming to an end. Now, the world is shifting the focus into renewable and environment-friendly form of energy that will save the climate. Technology has been assisting this idea. Even in automobile industry, electric cars are now produced. I think we are about to witness more waves of technology.
Nice piece buddy

Hello friend. I agree with you, maybe we are living the beginning of the end of fossil fuels, many nations have serious plans to decarbonize their energy sources and mobility, and technology is helping to drive that goal, so in the future we will continue to see the technological development of this sector of the industry.

The world is currently in a digital age and the need for digital tools in any sector cannot be underrated.

That's right my friend, in this digital era the impact of new technologies is felt in all sectors.

Hello @emiliomoron, without a doubt an excellent publication that you share with us where you show us the importance of energy in any of its forms and its total integration with current technological advances. Governments must invest and update their equipment to meet the demands of our society in constant evolution.

Greetings friend @madridbg, new technologies have really had an important impact on the energy sector, certainly governments must take advantage of these advances to meet the needs of a population that demands more and better services.

Great title dear friend @emiliomoron, I agree with you the future of energy is green and digital, and certainly this scenario has been strengthening in the months of pandemic, since in this time the advances in environmental matters have been in frank growth. Thanks for sharing this interesting approach. Best regards. We will continue reading.

Greetings friend @lupafilotaxia. The pandemic has allowed to put the accelerator on many environmental issues, and power generation has not escaped it, so we will continue to see the implementation of technological tools to achieve the goal of decarbonization of the electricity system. Thanks to you for reading and leaving your appreciation.
