The Smart Grid – New Thinking for Old Technology

With the rapid adoption of renewable energy generation and electric vehicles, we are profoundly affecting the way in which electricity needs to be generated, stored and distributed. The Smart-Grid initiative is a broad-based and complex effort to digitize an otherwise analogue and very old infrastructure with the benefit that better use of information will lead […]

The Cost of Reliable Wind Energy

I spent a fascinating couple of days in Hamburg at the Wind O&M (Operations & Maintenance) Forum, hearing about the wind energy industry’s efforts to reduce the levelised cost of energy (LCOE in £/kWh) of electricity produced by onshore wind turbines. Whilst the industry has made huge strides in progress since the world’s first wind farm* was commissioned in […]

3D vision with holographic radar

Holographic radar was in the news this morning as I drove in to work. The Breakfast Show was talking about drone detection systems being trialled and deployed by Aveillant, a spin out company from Cambridge Consultants. Aveillant was founded in 2011 to exploit the ability of 3D holographic radar to mitigate the clutter caused by […]

Technology Transfer to some of the World’s Largest Industries

My colleague’s article on Edge Intelligence is well timed. Economic and environmental pressures are forcing companies, and indeed entire industries, to find ever more innovative solutions to optimize their processes and reduce down time. The shift from traditional manufacturing processes towards Smart Factories or Industry 4.0 requires a combination of smart sensors, wireless and wired […]

The answer is blowing in the wind….*

Strangely enough, running an innovative product development company isn’t all about developing innovative products.  But if you employ the kind of people we do….the type capable of really making a difference to the way next generation products are developed, then a by-product is that they rarely stop thinking about alternative ways of taking technology and […]

Windfarms on a collision course?

According to Renewables UK , the UK is the windiest country in Europe, so much so that we could power our country several times over using this free fuel. A modern 2.5MW turbine at a reasonable site will generate 6.5 million units of electricity each year, enough to meet the annual needs of over 1,400 […]
