Renewable energy providers are committed to improving the energy conversion efficiency of our earth’s natural resources. They are leading the way in the development of environmentally friendly production alternatives, which remain low cost for the everyday family. Solar energy providers, including AGL, are among the growing number of energy providers who are leading the innovations that will transform our world, and the way we consume energy.
Solar Energy Providers
As the leading source of renewable energy, solar energy providers are transforming our future into one of sustainability for future generations. In fact, solar energy is now deemed one of the most important solutions to the global warming crisis. Solar power systems derive pure and clean energy straight from the sun, helping in the global fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the world’s overall dependence on fossil fuels.
Solar energy providers are also revolutionising the existing energy market. Unlike other forms of energy, solar energy cannot be monopolised. Once you have solar panels on your roof, you have an essentially independent source of electricity. Non-renewable energy sources are depleting, providing consumers with uncertainty over access to the energy, and the cost of the energy in the future. Development of independent sources of electricity is revolutionising the future and our dependence on harmful forms of non-renewable energy sources.
Wind Power Providers
The latest designs and ideas in the wind energy sector go beyond the traditional windmill style turbine you may be familiar with. Wind turbines of the future are now able to generate power without wind. Germany is so committed to their long-term goal of being completely free of non-renewable forms of energy, that there are specific research teams dedicated to the study of aerodynamic rotor blade design, structural analysis and wind forecasting technologies
Energy derived from the power of the wind provides a clean and renewable form of electricity. By harnessing the movement of air from an area of high pressure to an area on low pressure, wind turbines are able to convert the power into usable energy. Some of the biggest wind turbines in the world produce enough electricity in a year to supply 600 standard homes.
Smart Grid Providers
Providers and developers of Smart Grid technology have propelled the energy industry into a new era of reliability, availability, and efficiency. Smart Grids will help to integrate an increasing amount of renewable energy generation into the grid, allowing for two-way communication between the utility and its customers.
Smart Grid technology is innovating the way that consumers control their energy consumption. With Smart Meters allowing customers to access real-time information about their energy consumption, Smart Grid technology will empower customers of the future in ways never before offered in the outdated energy market.
Providers that are bringing energy to the developing world
There are a number of exciting innovative technologies that are bringing energy to the developing world, changing the futures of those who are less fortunate. Developing countries do not have the sophisticated and expensive energy systems that we have been lucky enough to implement. It would take years to extend the power grid to remote places and would require significant resources and financial backing to increase a country’s energy production capacity.
Innovative energy providers created a range of devices that can increase the supply of safe, cheap energy on a user-by-user basis to developing third-world countries. Access to energy provides life-changing opportunities for the less fortunate.
Innovations in energy conversion, storage and conversion are changing every part of the source-to-consumer supply chain for powering the planet. Most importantly, they are changing how our world interacts with and protects our non-renewable resources.
