EleQuant brings advanced, software-based, custom algorithms to the increasingly complex task of grid management. Improvement of grid performance offers significant economic and environmental advantages. Smart Grids are not so smart after all.

EleQuant has developed new technology for real-time intelligent observation and management of electricity flow. Public and private power companies use the company’s solutions to dramatically improve efficiency of electricity generation, transmission and distribution.

EleQuant’s Agora product suite, unlike the industry-standard solutions based on Newton-Raphson algorithms, employs non-iterative mathematics to arrive at correct solutions nearly 100% of the time – even as systems approach collapse. The result is a set of tools so robust they will keep you informed of the precise state of your network, even under the most difficult circumstances.

EleQuant is a subsidiary of AIA Group. Founded in 1988 and based in Barcelona, Spain, AIA Group is a technology and software development company that specializes in solving complex problems for the telecommunications, banking and energy industries. The company employs more than 100 physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, electrical and telecommunication engineers.

Setting  the conference tone, U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Philip Murphy, Germany’s Federal Minister for Technology and Economics, Mr. Ranier Bruderle, and President Obama’s Special Envoy for Eurasian Energy Affairs, Mr . Richard Morningstar, will all speak to the long-term bilateral economic opportunities where energy is seen as a two-way trade opportunity, not the one-sided issue it has been over the last 50 years.

Mr. Harding will compare and contrast the 1850′s California gold rush with the current U.S. Bioenergy gold rush.  He will discuss the lessons learned for economic opportunities that single impact events can cause for long-term global impacts, including opportunities for U.S./European trade and development.

P2i chooses Energy Launch Partners

on Feb 09 in News posted , , , , , , , by Tina

Energy Launch Partners has been chosen to develop P2i‘s unique business proposition for the solar energy sector. P2i is the world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology.

P2i’s revolutionary plasma process dramatically reduces the surface energy of a material, so that when liquids come into contact with it, they form beads and simply roll off. When applied to solar cells, P2i’s multi-patented technology can prevent water, frost and dirt from forming on the surface, radically improving performance. Furthermore, it is extremely durable and has the potential to extend the range of environments in which solar cell arrays can be deployed.

P2i’s nanometer-thin polymer coating is applied in a vacuum chamber using a special pulsed ionized gas (plasma). It is molecularly bound to the entire product surface, which means it becomes inseparable from it and extremely durable. And, because the coating is one thousand times thinner than a human hair, it is invisible to sight or touch. And, because the application process is solvent-free and uses only tiny quantities of protective monomer, there is minimal waste and no adverse impact on the environment. In addition, P2i’s highly flexible platform technology can be optimized to meet very specific functional requirements, making this a perfect fit for the complex demands of the solar energy industry.

Ross Harding, Managing Partner and Founder of Energy Launch Partners, comments: “P2i’s ground-breaking technology has vast applications in the solar energy sector. Renewable energy is a growing market like no other, with constantly evolving product needs, supply chains and customer requirements. We are hugely enthusiastic about our new partnership with P2i and the opportunities it presents.”

Stephen Coulson, Chief Technical Officer at P2i, said: “Following on from our recent successes in the consumer electronics market, P2i’s nano-coating technology promises to have the same game-changing impact on the solar energy sector. Unrivaled in its performance enhancing characteristics and flexibility, our technology delivers clearly defined benefits and a competitive edge for manufacturers. Through our collaboration with Energy Launch Partners, we are in a strong position to maximize the success of our launch into the solar energy market.”
