Smart electricity meter data analysis

Smart electricity meter data analysis

SustLabs uses automated metering and big-data analytics to ‘decode’ real-time electricity consumption data at residential level up to heavy appliance level by analysing smart meter data. This unlocks a wealth of information that electricity supply carries, generating insights for utilities, appliance manufacturers, market research companies, etc., which creates data driven revenue opportunities. SustLabs predicts this will transform compulsive electricity consumers to informed users.

Smart micro-grid for clean energy

Smart micro-grid for clean energy

Basil Energetics offers a solution to manage green power at the tail end of the grid or at the load end, to help cater for both urban and rural areas through its decentralized approach. The offered solution is provided in the form of a package, consisting of not only standalone solar panels, but also includes a range of innovative hybrid household electrical appliances such as a ceiling fan, LED lights, air conditioner, refrigerator etc. The demand and supply is managed using a smart micro-grid (SMG) controller, called an iGrid. This scheme eliminates the requirement of electrical conversions, particularly DC to AC in hybrid appliances, to a large extent.

Smart rice cultivation

Farmers can use Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD) as a more efficient method of rice cultivation. This involves allowing fields to dry down between floods on rice fields. By decreasing the amount of time fields remain flooded, AWD reduces water use, fuel and electricity use for running irrigation pumps, and the need for nitrogen fertilizers, while also slowing down the anaerobic activity that creates methane gas. However, AWD can be challenging. It requires farmers to control water levels carefully across large tracts of land. It also introduces risk to the rice crops, as it can be difficult to assess depth accurately with only a few measurements at various points in the fields. Together, these barriers have slowed adoption of AWD. AT&T connectivity enables water-level data to be remotely collected and connected to pumping systems to automatically control the water level in the rice fields. This helps both with the implementation of the AWD process and with the data collection required for verification of the carbon credits. Thus the technology helps to overcome barriers to implementation and increases the AWD adoption rate.

Current avoided annual emissions calculated based on adoption of IoT-enabled AWD expanded to all rice farmers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Texas.

Solar energy harvesting in Chile's desert

Solar energy harvesting in Chile's desert

The Atacama Desert, located in northern part of Chile, has special conditions that need the development of technologies to allow an efficient solar energy generation. The area presents an average direct global radiation level of 3.500 kWh/m² per annum and an horizontal global radiation level of 2.500 kWh/m² per annum, one of the highest in the world. The solution is a new optimal solar technology to be used in the Atacama Desert. The development includes new materials to resist high radiation levels, a bifacial photovoltaic panel to take advantage of the radiation and the ground and new methods for operation and maintenance considering the lack of water in the desert.

Solar powered small-scale agricultural machines

Solar powered small-scale agricultural machines

ALTO precision’s aim is to develop a range of solar-powered small-scale decentralised machinery for remote small holding agri-processing needs in India. Their current developments include a range of small-scale rice processing machines. The solar rice huller is a 360 W machine that can produce 100 kg/hour with a hulling efficiency of 98% in the first pass, which ALTO precision claims is the most efficient small-scale rice processing machine in the world, almost 50% more efficient than any other machine, at a low price. The machines are solar powered, high capacity and very efficient, giving farmers access to a sustainable energy source and providing food security and the opportunity to create an additional income.

Solar steam for industrial processes

Solar steam for industrial processes

Solatom is a solar concentrator designed for generating high temperature heat (steam, hot water or thermal oil) in industrial processes. Solatom's modules are formed by rows of mirrors that track the sun, reflecting the sunlight on a vacuum tube. The fluid circulating through the tube absorbs the reflected energy producing an increase in the temperature of the fluid (up to 300 °C). Each module has a nominal power of 15 kW thermal. When more capacity is needed, the modules are joined together, increasing the total power of the plant. The system is designed for be deployed on the rooftop, with a specific weight under 23 kg/m².

Solid-state refrigerator

India's National Physical Laboratory has developed a portable, solid state cooling technology that does not require the compressor or refrigerant found in conventional refrigerators. It can therefore be operated at a low-power supply of only 75 Watts DC, e.g. directly from solar photovoltaic cells and batteries. The cooler was developed for two main applications: 

1. As a low-cost refrigerator for rural populations to store food and provide affordable comfort

2. To compliment India’s immunization program for rural populations of children by storing vaccines at low temperatures for a long time. 

With a long lifespan and needing little maintenance, the solid state cooler maintains 5 °C at an ambient temperature of 40 °C but can cool to -2 °C if required.

Spinning cylinder for wind power of vessels

Spinning cylinder for wind power of vessels

Windjammers were a class of sailing vessels built from the 1870s to 1900. As engine technology developed, they were slowly phased out and replaced by steamships which were faster and could stay on schedule regardless of wind conditions. But what if the power of wind could be harnessed to create a hybrid solution for today’s modern fleets? That’s the idea behind Norsepower’s Rotor Sail Solution – a spinning cylinder that harnesses wind power to generate the thrust needed to propel vessels. When conditions are favorable, the Norsepower Rotor Sails allow the main engines to be throttled back, saving fuel and reducing emissions while providing the power needed to maintain speed and voyage time.
