The Distributed Energy Resources: Digitization & IoT Conference gathered prominent analysts, policy makers, business leaders in Vienna this week. With a focus on new types of energy generation, the event set out to focus on answering the key questions dominating the energy discourse. Representing Faraday Grid, CEO Andrew Scobie put the emphasis on the how rather than the what of the popular questions in his presentation. Read his speech, titled ‘Reinventing the Electricity Grid as a DER Platform’ via the link.
The European Utility Week, a summit for key players in the energy sphere working towards a fully integrated and interconnected electricity system and market in Europe took place in Vienna this year. Read CEO Andrew’s Scobie’s speech on why the Faraday Grid is the necessary evolution of the energy system.
Last week, Founder and Chief Technology Officer Matthew Williams travelled to the University of Manchester to award the first ever Faraday Grid Prize for Research for Industry. This prize recognises rigorous academic research with strong industrial applicability. It is also a great example of Faraday’s drive to enable collaboration among the academic and private sector thereby catalysing societal progress. Read Matthew’s article below to find out why he believes collaboration is a key pillar for building future prosperity.
The Faraday Grid is thrilled to announce the deployment of its revolutionary technology in London, one of the world’s most sophisticated electricity networks. The agreement will see the world’s first Faraday Grid utilised in a live network from early 2019 in partnership with the UK’s most innovative distribution network operator UK Power Networks, which characterised Faraday’s technology as ‘transformational.’ As the Faraday Grid expands through the rest of the UK and beyond, it promises to unlock new frontiers in innovation and underpin the sustainable welfare of generations to come.
Faraday’s intellectual property is integral to building the energy platform of the future. The recent publication of some of Faraday’s original patents was a significant milestone that provided additional external validation of the authenticity of the technology.
To understand the specifics, I asked Matthew Williams, founder and Chief Technology Officer, for an introduction to the process of patent writing, Faraday’s strategic approach, and the unique technology covered by Faraday’s published patents.
It is humbling to imagine that come the evening of Tuesday 12th December, the Faraday Grid will take centre stage in the Grand Hall, with more than 150 people from the fields of industry, finance and academia, as well as friends and family present. A full scale prototype of the Faraday Exchanger will be unveiled to the audience for a live demonstration. This approach really does highlight the confidence we have in our technology, which has been subject to years of R&D and simulation testing.
In every era in the history of humanity, innovation and development has been implemented in all areas to simplify the functioning of operating systems and ultimately, increase efficiency and boost productivity. The Faraday Exchanger builds on the work of key physicists and mathematicians by going back to fundamental principles. This article gives an overview of the most significant scientific breakthroughs leading up to The Faraday Exchanger.
