There have been quite a few disasters over the last few years, such as from hurricanes that severed large electricity customers from the grid. These big businesses still needed to keep their operations running, so they had to rely on generators to keep essential systems like climate control running. However, many of these systems are inefficient. Fortunately, new highly efficient technologies are coming out that can more efficiently generate power.
Energy Cloud Generators
Even traditional means of generating power can be made to be much more efficient than they are currently. And one way to do this is through tech advances in cloud computing efficiency. Some large corporations are actually required by law to own their own generator sets. That's why it's particularly important to use reliable tech such as from energy cloud systems.
This system uses energy from many different locations instead of from just one big generator. Instead, there are many little generators from a variety of different energy types that work together to keep the heat and lights on. When it comes to sprawling complexes, energy from just one generator can be inefficient when it's trying to provide energy to areas that are far away.
But, with energy cloud approaches, the small generators that are closest to the location that needs energy can provide that energy instead. This makes for a far more efficient power generation approach. The system could use wind farm generators, rooftops solar panels, biodiesel, gas fuel cells, or anything else, all connected to the computer and striving towards the same goal.
Bladeless Wind Turbines
One issue with efficiency when it comes to wind energy is that space is at a premium. Those huge blades often need a lot of room in between each of them in order to function safely. Another issue is that the turbines with blades tend to be expensive.
New technological approaches seek to change this by actually creating wind turbines that don't have any blades. Some estimates show that these turbines could cost 40 percent less than traditional turbines that do have the blades. It's true that the bladeless turbines currently can't convert kinetic energy into electricity as well as traditional turbines, but this is changing.
Currently, a conventional turbine generator can make the conversion at a rate of about 90 percent, where bladeless turbines manage around 70 percent. But, this is largely offset by the fact that you can have more turbines in a smaller area if they're bladeless and cost much less. This is even before bladeless turbine technology improves as well.
