Artificial Intelligence for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy - 6 Current Applications

Artificial Intelligence for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy – 6 Current Applications

The U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA) defines renewable energy as an energy source that naturally regenerates, such as solar or wind. In contrast, fossil fuels are considered finite. The EIA reports that in 2016, 10 percent of all energy consumed in the U.S. was derived from renewable energy sources. This is equivalent to roughly “10.2 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu) —1 quadrillion is the number 1 followed by 15 zeros”.
