The Future of the energy Grid – Created by the Prosumer

The present grid is designed to transmit electricity in a straight line, from producer to consumer. The implementation Banner2of renewable energy in commercial and domestic environments has, however, led to the emergence of another party who produce, consume and possibly sell their own energy – the prosumer. When the prosumer’s renewable energy is fed back into the grid – causing electricity to flow in the other direction from the one originally intended – high voltages and transformer overloads can occur in under-reinforced parts of the grid network as a result of grid bottlenecks.

To resolve this issue, logic would dictate that the new installations should be connected to a more robust part of the grid; limitations on the amount of power being fed into the grid at certain times should be imposed (known as ‘curtailment’); or reinforcements be made to the network itself, to allow it to accommodate the added power. However, it may not be practical to connect a new generator to a stronger part of the grid, curtailing the power being fed into the grid from renewable sources wastes that ‘excess’ energy, and reinforcement (by doubling the existing circuit along the feeder; adding a new transformer to an existing line; or building a whole new line) can prove expensive.

While “distribution grids can already take up significant amounts of PV electricity with little to no grid adjustments”, energythe growth of renewable energy relies on the ability of the energy distribution network to accommodate the energy being fed in from renewable energy sources. A lack of planning, or an underestimation of the expansion of that country’s renewable energy industry, can result in “sub-optimal situations in network operation… A forward-looking policy is needed to ensure that Europe’s decarbonisation strategies will be supported by a corresponding vision of grid evolution” Similarly, in the U.S., “investments must be made in grid and transmission infrastructure to account for an increasing share (up to 30%) of variable renewable power [by 2030].”

The absence of long-term grid planning for integration of small systems leads to bottlenecks that otherwise might have been avoided if measures were taken beforehand.” As a result of this absence, management of the grid in its present state is becoming “more and more challenging for distribution system operators

The urgency of expensive grid upgrades can, however, be delayed or minimised through the implementation of alternative solutions. Four of the most viable alternatives are: energy storage products (Distributed Energy Resources); Demand-Side Management (DSM); localised energy consumption (microgrids); and mixed energy installations.

Curtailment has been a route taken in various countries across Europe, and has been identified as a “growing concern”. Moreover, “utilities that are signing long-term contracts for wind and solar may want to consider who bears the curtailment risk during the lifetime of the contract”

Sian Castle becomes a Coffee Blender

Turning the world’s coffee drinkers into great coffee roasters and blenders.

Every coffee we drink is created by blending different types of coffee beans and having those beans roasted in one of the commercial coffee roasters. Coffee blending and the creation of a great coffee within the coffee industry has been a skill and craft that has been passed down over the generations. These skills help coffee drinkers to drink coffee with a consistency according to the blends flavour and cost.

Coffee Blends are produced as brands and sold throughout the world, and created for the biggest brands to the smallest café and restaurant,.

Over the years the coffee blending process has been left up to the people that have access to the green beans, the roasting equipment and the production knowledge needed to create a unique coffee blend for their customers.

These skills based around the knowledge of green beans, roasting, and production information, allowing roasting and production plants to become gatekeepers, of the both of creation and distribution of coffee blends.

BIGONIT has been working in the field of commercial coffee production allowing production plants make better use of technology to deliver their services and allowing everyone to create thier own unique coffee blend.

Followers, Following and Trending – adapitive and colabaritive frameworks

e- readers

E-book provides new forms of publication model, and allows the content of a text to grow, or be adapted, to address changes affecting the subject matter, and the changing requirements of the reader.

This is particularly pertinent where the book includes style documents, or forms, with the intention that these will be adapted and used by the reader. By publishing e-books texts can be updated easily, and volumes of styles can themselves be used to create a new revenue stream.

We’re publishers provided standard form documents that are  use as the basis for drafting addressed to the specific circumstances of their clients’ needs. The newly created documents  may be saved as a style by the person or group  in which it was created, but there is currently no value to the publisher of this work, and it may have limited value even to the practice, where the document is addressed to circumstances which infrequently occur.

E-publishing allows styles to be sold by People of groups  who created them through , the publisher of the source material. In this system the publisher gains from augmentation of their style-bank, free of the cost of research normally associated with the creation of new documents.

Followers , Following and Trending

Real-time peer-to-peer collaboration via the internet has been at the cutting edge of progressive movements within the professions, and it is certain that any publisher facilitating this activity will validate themselves as a resource which is keeping pace with change.

Using this model to acquire and distribute the drafting efforts of its subscribers, the publisher becomes the “hub” of a growing and adapting knowledge community, where peers follow each other’s work, and critical comment is passed.

The publisher can manage this environment by creating rules which will allow the community to be monitored by its members, and for members to make corrections directly, and by creating different levels of access, and ability to act within the community.

A community thus established will also allow the publisher to appreciate, in detail, the interests of individual members, by looking at their activity as “followers” within the community. It will disclose also who are most followed; effective influencers who the publisher may wish to approach directly to benefit from their abilities.

Account management

The community will disclose trends in drafting, and in the evolution of the profession itself, providing the publisher with the ability to market new products using accurate, tightly-focused, campaigns, or to sell reports of this information to government agencies or other commercial entities.

The data from a properly established on-line community may come to be valued more highly, on the balance sheet of the publisher, than the intellectual rights to the texts which it holds!

The use of various technologies can be used to expand its existing revenue model by creating new subscription packages delivered electronically. These packages can be defined by varying data-access rights corresponding to the declared interests of the subscriber.

Such a subscription service could allow access to, and could readily interact with, an online publishing community, and the community would provide data which could be used to optimise the nature and delivery of subscription products.

In this model of product delivery texts could be made available from a central portal during the subscription period, with the ability of the subscriber to download materials designated style documents only. This system could potentially work very well for a publisher, which produces style volumes, volumes of legislation, periodicals and student and practitioner text-books, which could underwrite varied and adaptable subscription models.

To such subscription services could be added offerings of other online services as bolt-ons, such as cloud storage, web-hosting, dictation transcription, VoIP telephone services, virtual accounting, and reception, and even access to office space.
