What fuels us matters
EnergyEvolutions advises leaders to realize innovation-enabled transformations in materials & energy for resilience
EnergyEvolutions guides leaders in harnessing deep tech developments enabling stakeholders unprecedented transformation with insights, expertise, and ecosystem navigation for resilience through materials, energy, and water.
We’re here to apply our portfolio of sustainability and resilience knowledge and delivery practice we cultivate in our teams and partners.
We provide the sustainability skills and knowledge that must be considered and integrated to achieve the resilience goals and objectives for your organization, community, and family.
How do we define sustainability?
Sustainability refers to the ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
This includes economic, social, and environmental aspects such as reducing carbon emissions, fostering economic development, and promoting social well-being.
Why do we talk about resilience?
Resilience refers to the ability of a system or community to prepare for, withstand and recover from shocks or disturbances. This includes natural disasters, economic instability, and other disruptions to the normal functioning of a society or ecosystem.
There are wrong ways to compromise — don’t get caught playing a zero-sum game
EnergyEvolutions conveys and operationalizes resilience expertise through programs by our team with yours.
We’re ready to use what we know to make the most positive impact for your community, team — and you personally — for your sustainability and resilience.
We have the people, we have the approaches, and we have the mindsets to address these complex issues. We’re experienced and enthusiastic to put them to practice.
Who We Serve
We serve companies, NGOs, and government agencies, promoting sustainable and resilient communities. We offer services, products, and programs tailored to your needs, to support sustainability and resilience goals.
The Solar Millennium
“The Solar Millennium” refers to the moment in which solar energy becomes the primary source of electricity generation, surpassing other forms of energy such as fossil fuels and nuclear power.
The term “millennium” implies a significant change or shift in the way energy is produced and consumed, with solar energy becoming the dominant source.
As solar generation capacity grows so will the economy, since booms largely correlate with energy availability
This concept could include wide-spread adoption of solar power generation through various technologies such as photovoltaics, concentrated solar power, and more.
The idea behind the solar millennium is to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.
This idea is not only hypothetical, it is also a goal for many countries and organizations as a way to decrease the negative impact of energy production on the environment and to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Near-term impacts, immediate benefits, and long-term strategic validation
It’s worth noting that the concept of the solar millennium is a long-horizon goal, as it requires significant advancements in solar energy technology, as well as a significant investment in the infrastructure needed to support large-scale solar power generation.
It also will require a comprehensive energy policy to be implemented and adhered to, to ensure a smooth transition and support for this shift.
The Water-Energy Connect
There is a strong connection between water and energy because both water and energy are required to produce, distribute, and use electricity.
Additionally, the use of water and energy are often interdependent, meaning that the use of one resource can have a significant impact on the use of the other.
- Water is used in the production of energy, particularly in thermoelectric power generation, which is the most common method of electricity generation in the world. Water is used as a coolant in power plants, and to generate steam to drive turbines.
- Energy is required to pump, treat, and distribute water. Energy is also needed to treat wastewater and to desalinate seawater.
- Water scarcity can impact energy production, particularly in areas where water is used for cooling in power plants. Drought conditions can lead to reduced water availability, which can force power plants to reduce output or shut down altogether.
- Energy consumption can impact water availability, particularly in areas where water is pumped from distant sources or treated with energy-intensive processes.
- Renewable energy sources such as hydroelectric power, tidal power, and wave power are directly dependent on water.
Overall, the connection between water and energy is complex and multifaceted, and the use of one resource can have a significant impact on the availability and use of the other.
It is important for policymakers, energy and water managers, and other stakeholders to consider the interdependence of water and energy when making decisions about resource management and infrastructure development.
Small-Scale | Appropriate-Scale | Community-Scale | Micro-Grids
For too long, the needs of the individual home-owner, the needs of apartment residents, and generally consumer and small and medium business owners when it comes to their particular energy needs.
EnergyEvolutions focuses on the needs of the family, the small and medium sized business, and the emerging community groups across the globe who want to provide their their communities and be a node for resilience for their neighbors, catalyzing more
Serving individual and small business wanting to generate their own power using renewable sources such as solar panels or wind turbines.
Reduce carbon footprint.
Save money on your energy bills.
Serving medium-sized business or organization, school or hospital
Generate a portion of their own power using renewable sources.
Reduce eco impact and have more localized control over energy supply.
Serving groups and organizations within community that want to work together to generate power for the community using renewable sources.
Create more sustainable community
Reduce dependence on fossil fuels
We consult on micro-grids for your community, off-grid, island, remote village, or organizational resolution desiring to generate and distribute power locally using renewable sources. This also provides the ability to disconnect from the main grid and operate autonomously.
They may be motivated by a desire to increase energy security and reliability, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and to have more control over their energy supply.
The resilience benefits during “black swan” events that even the electricity utilities can never fully prepare for are impressive: imagine during a power outage for the rest of the city, a micro-grid can power some limited electricity demand for ensuring refrigeration of food and medicine, during an extended power outage.
Though data is scarce, utilities facing numerous incidents after an emergency like an earthquake, tornado, or hurricane/cyclone, can have long delays to repair transmission, primary generation, as well as distribution transformers.
It behooves leaders and citizens to prepare for the worst and bake resilience into their investments for their communities, teams, and selves.
EnergyEvolutions prepares you to be prepared.
