Energy Update

The Fall 2017 semester was a rather opportune time period to engage in research of energy, due to a series of current events, natural disasters, and global action relevant to this topic. In August/September of this past year, three major hurricanes made landfall on the United States and significantly exploited the outdated infrastructure of our […]

How AI can Reshape the Energy Sector

In class, we have been extensively discussing artificial intelligence. Particularly, how it will impact society, what it is capable of, and the potential implications, At first, I never really thought anything of it. I definitely was not a believer. I saw it as robots that would never come to be in my lifetime. Soon after, […]

Artificial Intelligence in the Energy Sector

In class, we have been discussing artificial intelligence. It has truly opened my eyes to the potential it can have on society, in every aspect. I believe a direction that we should start taking, or even thinking about in this research, is how we can implement artificial intelligence into the energy sector. I believe with […]

Using Solar Energy as a Primary Source of Power

  With our energy supply diminishing, our infrastructure crumbling, and our climate being destroyed, its time to make a change. Our current administration, along with big oil companies are trying to keep us in the past century, by continuing to use fossil fuels and other sources of energy that have negative effects on the planet. […]

Geoengineering Will Not Fix Our Energy Problem

Researchers in the field of climate change and energy have been spending a lot of time looking into a practice known as geoengineering; deliberately changing the environmental processes of the earth. This practice is one that could be very beneficial to our climate, and may be an option we must resort to in the future, […]

The Modern Energy Workforce

Like any major sector of the United States, energy employs millions of people per year. Studies show that approximately 6.4 million people are employed in the energy sector, and it appears to be trending higher. Energy jobs are some of the most important; they are necessary for keeping our grid safe, ensuring effective transmission and […]

Modernizing the Energy Sector In The United States

  Recently, I have been investigating and researching energy supply; particularly, how we can more efficiently create a supply energy at the highest output with least negative effects. It is clear that our sources of energy such as carbon, wind, and fossil fuels, have detrimental effects on the climate, the environment, and our health as […]

Finding the Most Efficient Energy Supply For The Future

Today, we face many issues in the world when it comes to energy efficiency, climate change, and the environment. Each of these things are interconnected; our sources of energy, such as fossil fuels and coal, directly affect the climate with regards to global warming, carbon emissions, and ocean acidification. This model we have implemented in […]
