Renewable Energy Future by Artificial Intelligence
In the bigger picture, AI will be the brains behind a proposed national smart grid that will take the input of millions of sensors to make real-time decisions about which sensors need to be replaced and where to allocate energy resources. One very famous example of an energy-saving AI algorithm involves Google.
Wind and solar offer particularly rich datasets that algorithms can chew on in order to provide insights on current problems, predict issues that might arise, improve energy storage or to identify the optimal layout of the next mega solar farm .
