GE’s electrical engineer Naresh Acharya is working on a system that could one day help utilities predict the amount electricity generated by inherently unpredictable renewable resources like wind and sun, and send as much of it as possible over the grid to consumers. Acharya is using software to predict and balance the electricity generated by renewables and […]

A research group at Brown is working on a solution to gather tidal energy in shallow water, where the ebb and flow move fastest and the energy potential is highest. Led by Shreyas Mandre, assistant professor of engineering, the group is developing a hydrofoil — a water wing — as a means to harvest tidal […]

Makani Power recently announced that it is being acquired by Google. The Makani Airborne Wind Turbine is a tethered wing that generates power by flying in large circles where the wind is stronger and more consistent. It eliminates 90% of the material used in conventional wind turbines, and can access winds both at higher altitudes […]
