The latest from – Green Tech Media  Article by Jason Deign

“This year will likely be remembered as a period of technology consolidation rather than breakthrough innovation in the energy industry. Emerging industries such as offshore wind and lithium-ion battery storage have gone from strength to strength. 

Meanwhile, more novel technologies such as energy blockchains and flow batteries have been relatively quiet this year. Read more

A possible breakout moment for emerging technologies like storage and hydrogen

Both energy storage and hydrogen – critical emerging technologies for unlocking emissions reductions across energy systems – could become key beneficiaries of stimulus plans, much as solar PV and wind benefitted from boosts during recovery packages after the 2008 financial crisis. Read more

Power electronics have taken an interesting turn toward the adoption of wide bandgap (WBG) devices such as GaN and SiC. While silicon still dominates the market, the emergence of GaN and SiC devices will soon direct technology toward new, more efficient solutions. Yole Développement (Yole) estimates that revenue from SiC devices will account for more than 10% of the market by 2025, while revenue from GaN devices will be more than 2% of the market by 2025.
