Energy Innovations For A Brighter Tomorrow

energy innovations

Over the next few decades, the world’s energy landscape as we know it will change dramatically. One decisive change is the ever-growing demand for power which brings about the need for new and better energy innovations.

Wherever there is an increase in access to reliable and affordable energy, people want to enjoy a higher standard of living. While that is certainly a good thing, at the same time, many of the world’s population lack access to even the most basic energy services.

Renewable Energy: Could Blockchain Be The Smoking Gun?

Our existing energy market has been in development for over a century and changing it to renewable energy is no easy feat. Among other factors, it requires incredibly large capital investments and thus far, renewable energy has reached 21.6%. It was further explained during the One Planet Summit in December 2017, when U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said: “Finance is the key to successful climate action.”

Even so, why is the adoption of renewable energy lacking on a global scale? It’s certainly not for a lack of wanting a cleaner life or to improve the world for future generations. Instead, market conditions slowing the development of Continue reading

Last week we covered electric hoverbikes in Dubai and today we’re continuing along that path but with a slight twist. What do you get when you cross a motorcycle with new technology and a mountain bike? The answer is simple – a hybrid electric motorcycle called the LMX 161-H. It resembles downhill bicycles and is described as a super-light electric motorcycle weighing in at just 42kg. Early reports suggest it’s ideal for off-road, freeride and enduro use but just as suitable for urban travel.

Two young French engineers and avid riders, Adam Mercier and Lucas Suteau, are responsible for this concept as they see a future for electric motorsport. Their vision turned prototype and the project has quickly become a crowdfunding campaign. Their aim is to get the worlds lightest freeride electric motorcycle to hit the streets all over the world. If all goes according to plan, the first deliveries will go out in May 2018. Continue reading
