    /7th September 2016, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/  Today, commercial, residential, and industrial buildings account for almost 50 % percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and 47 % of the world’s energy consumption. The global building stock of 153.1 billion square meters in 2015 need regular inspection and facility maintenance calculated from the research department of Renewable Market Watch™. Use of drones (UAVs) in building inspections and energy audits represent a significant area for support of energy efficiency technologies that could help achieve reductions in energy consumption and carbon emissions. An additional 2.5 billion people are predicted to live in urban areas by 2050, according to the United Nations estimation, which means a further increase of building stock in the next decade and beyond. Drones (UAVs) could perform inspection work of buildings and construction processes quicker, safer and more cost-effective than traditional methods reveals Renewable Market Watch™ in its recently published report Drones in Building and Construction Inspection Global Market Outlook 2016÷2025. With drones (UAVs) will be easier to provide emergency response and inspect damaged roofs, collapsed buildings, and other difficult to reach places. This could prove especially valuable after severe storms when technicians can often assess damaged structures or evaluate claims.

  • Drones (UAVs) to Take Off in Energy Efficiency Audits of Buildings and Houses

    /28th October 2016, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/  The building sector accounts for more than 41% of primary energy consumption in the US in 2015, contributing an increasing portion of the country’s carbon dioxide emissions reveals Renewable Market Watch™ in its report Drones in Building and Construction Inspection Global Market Outlook 2016÷2025. If energy efficiency rules and eco-design product standards were harmonised across the globe, the savings in energy and greenhouse gas emissions would be enormous, a new study has found. Up to 7,600 TWh of electricity would be saved by 2030 – a 13% reduction on the business as usual scenario. Global energy efficiency and eco-design measures could save the equivalent to almost double the annual electricity consumption of the United States making an estimated €280 - €410 billion in savings on energy spending, the study carried out for the European Commission says. At the same time, 4,450 Mt of carbon emissions would be avoided – equal to an estimated 7% of emissions in 2030. This would be the equivalent to the emissions of 1,170 coal-fired power stations, or more than the entire carbon emissions of the EU in 2012.

  • SMA Offers SolarCoin Crypto Cash

    /15th February 2019, Jason Deign/ German solar inverter maker SMA Solar Technology this month gave 260,000 customers the ability to claim a cryptocurrency called SolarCoin in exchange for solar energy. The scheme, available as a feature in SMA’s Sunny Portal software for Webconnect and Sunny Home Manager customers, allows PV system owners to collect a SolarCoin for every megawatt-hour of solar energy produced.
