ENGIE on Africa's energy deficit

ENGIE on Africa's energy deficit

Despite being home to 15 percent of the world's population, Africa only accounts for one 20th of global energy use. In this sense, energy consumption per capita across the continent is three times lower than the global average.

Sun in a box would store renewable energy for the grid

Sun in a box would store renewable energy for the grid

Engineers have come up with a conceptual design for a system to store renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, and deliver that energy back into an electric grid on demand. The system may be designed to power a small city not just when the sun is up or the wind is high, but around the clock.

Piezoelectrics Key to IoT and Power from Roads?

Piezoelectrics Key to IoT and Power from Roads?

California and Europe are pumping millions into development of electricity-generating roads using piezoelectrics. Piezos will also be useful in self-powered Internet of Things nodes because no one will change or even charge millions of batteries for those nodes let alone the envisaged billions. Without self-powered nodes, the IoT will be nothing more than a footnote in history. The new IDTechEx Research report, "Piezoelectric Harvesting and…
