During the past years, the stock market values of large IT businesses as well as atmospheric CO2 concentrations have both soared. Big IT companies use a tiny fraction of the energy they use in relation to their overall economic, social, and even environmental effect. Although they have a significant financial, cultural, and scientific impact, large corporations may play an important role in preventing climate disaster.
Significant IT businesses have already agreed to zero emissions commitments. According to these corporations‘ status as „trend setters,“ these goals are critical for the rest of our economy. There are those who argue that their efforts in digitization and artificial intelligence might be game changers in the construction of smarter, more flexible energy systems essential to achieve net zero emission.
One of the most significant financial trends in the last decade has been the advent of the mega-IT companies. All of Germany’s and Brazil’s publicly traded companies combined are expected to be worth USD 5.5 trillion by 2020, according to the top three IT behemoths. It is currently twice as concentrated as it was during the Rockefeller and Carnegie periods in the top three IT businesses in terms of financial worth.
Compared to their operations, tech companies‘ direct emissions are modest
Big Tech’s energy use and emissions are large in absolute terms, but not relative to their operations. Data centers, for example, utilize barely 1% of global power, considerably below industrial motors or air conditioning.
Clearly, the energy and carbon footprint of IT enterprises varies greatly by business style. Some of the world’s top IT companies are virtually totally digital. Then there are the huge carbon-intensive hardware supply chains and worldwide shipping and delivery networks. Outsourced manufacturing and logistical activities are documented under Scope 3.
From direct and market-based electricity emissions, the major five IT companies released around 13 million tons of CO2 equivalent in 2019, or about 0.04 percent of global energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Scope 3 emissions include corporate travel, employee transportation, manufacturing, and construction. Decarbonizing all of these enterprises‘ operations, including supply chains, may only have a little impact on global CO2 emissions. Assumedly, the great enabling potential of digital solutions for energy systems and beyond will outweigh the immediate
Despite this, several companies have devised aggressive emission reduction initiatives. Human resource considerations, together with broader social and political concerns, seem to be driving this trend: young professionals with technological skills are increasingly asking that their firms take responsibility on critical social and environmental problems, such as climate change. IT workers have openly demanded their companies take tougher climate action, such as avoiding the use of machine learning when it aids fossil fuel exploitation.
Big IT companies invest in a lot of renewable energy
Big IT companies pioneered corporate renewable energy power purchase agreements (PPAs). In 2020, the top five tech companies will have acquired 7.2 GW of renewable energy, almost 30% of all corporate renewable PPAs and 3.5 percent of global renewable capacity expansions. Big IT businesses in the US now often commit to obtaining the same amount of renewable energy as their yearly use.
Estimating the effect of renewable purchases is difficult. A long-term contract with any of them provides great investment security and facilitates project financing at attractive conditions. In other cases, the company’s direct equity involvement aided this financing. This increased investment in renewable energy. There is evidence that large IT businesses‘ prospective investments have affected renewable energy legislation, for example by improving network connectivity.
Ensure a digital transformation in the electricity industry
Deploying wind and solar PV to generate low-carbon power is driving the increase of low-carbon electricity supply. As a consequence, most experts think that growing electricity demand and boosting wind and solar power are key components of the clean energy transition. But wind and solar energy are weather-dependent. More than the “bricks and mortar” sector, the digital economy depends on reliable electricity.
Technology firms may be able to help even out power use. Large IT companies are now quickly investing in hydrogen and battery storage, as well as wind and solar, to guarantee that their data centers are supplied with clean power 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But it’s system operators, not business users, who balance networked systems. Big IT companies can help decarbonize the grid by altering workloads to match renewable production or acting as a demand response resource.
The Solution Is Neutrinovoltaic Energy
For enterprises who are unable to get enough solar energy, neutrinovoltaic technology provides a fail-safe solution that never fails. The neutrinovoltaic system developed by the Neutrino Energy Group creates power by capturing neutrinos and other non-visible radiations, which are Ghost particles that bombard the Earth on a daily basis. With neutrinovoltaic technology, even electrosmog, the electromagnetic energy released by man-made electrical equipment, may be absorbed and used for energy. The Neutrino Energy Group has achieved a significant advance in the harvesting of neutrino kinetic energy and the conversion of that energy into electricity.
Block-sized Neutrinovoltaic Modules
The metamaterial developed by the Neutrino Energy Group now contains ultra-thin graphene and silicon layers. When this material is attached to a metallic substrate and struck by neutrinos, it vibrates. Because a resonance produces both vertical and horizontal vibrations at the same time, it is feasible to generate electrical energy from it.
Winter and summer weather patterns have no effect on the performance of neutrinovoltaics. Neutrinovoltaic cells can produce electricity at any time of day or night. Neutrinovoltaic cells, like photovoltaic cells, may be horizontally scaled. Where these two energy-gathering gadgets vary is in their capacity to expand vertically.
Solar cells can only function if the sun’s rays are not blocked, hence they cannot be stacked. However, since neutrinovoltaic cells do not have this design flaw, they may be piled indefinitely and still provide the same amount of electrical power at the bottom of the stack.
Science and engineering knowledge
Some years ago, independent Japanese and Canadian scientists managed to prove that neutrinos, the tiny rays of cosmic particles that permeate almost everything in the universe, had mass. Furthermore, e=mc2 suggests that anything with mass also has energy, according to Einstein’s Relativity Theory. As a result of their discovery, both scientists received the coveted Nobel Prize in Physics.
Prior to this, it was thought that harnessing this energy for power generation would be impossible; however, The Neutrino Energy Group has gone one step further by figuring out how to do it. It is theoretically possible to collect energy from neutrinos and other non-visible radiations in a manner similar to that of harvesting energy from photovoltaic (PV) solar cells. The kinetic energy of the neutrinos is captured and utilized to create electricity in the experiment, rather than being absorbed by the detector.
Silicon and carbon layers surgically implanted in metal generate resonance when neutrinos contact the Neutrino Power Cell. Neutrino Energy learned how to build a cell capable of converting the proper degree of resonance into the resonant frequency of an electrical conductor and then capturing the energy. “ The method’s tremendous advantage is that it doesn’t need sunlight at all. Every day of the year, 365 days a year, Neutrino Power Cubes can convert energy all around the world.
New technology has the potential to help future generations meet their energy demands without relying on outdated infrastructure, competing for limited natural resources, or damaging the environment, and thereby avoid an international catastrophe.
Neutrino Energy’s Future
Neutrinovoltaic energy is used even underground. Like other forms of radiation, neutrinos travel through Earth with just a few known obstacles in their way. Because of their tiny size and portability, neutrinovoltaic cells may be deployed everywhere on the planet. Consequently, the environmental effect of solar and wind farms will be minimized.
The Neutrino Energy Group is developing a consumer-grade product that may be used in a variety of applications. In the laboratory, neutrinovoltaic technology has been shown to operate very well. The Neutrino Energy Group predicts that neutrinovoltaic energy will initially be utilized for smartphones and laptops, as well as pacemakers and other tiny devices, but that in the future, this energy source will be capable of meeting all of a household’s electrical demands.
Neutrinovoltaic technology, in contrast to photovoltaic technology, can function even when the sun isn’t out. A world in which neutrino-powered vehicles and industrial equipment are widely available may be closer than we think.. According to the Neutrino Energy Group, it is now time to put these spectrum particles to work in order to brighten humanity’s future.
