NEW YORK,– Non-renewable resources such as fossil fuel, oil, natural gas, and nuclear power have generated a lot of concern as a result of their negative environmental impact. These resources are limited in quantity, meaning their constant use could eventually deplete them, driving the demand for alternative energy solutions. Due to the negative associations with these resources, many companies, residential homes, and governments have begun to implement clean energy solutions. Some of the most common forms of clean energy resources are solar, wind, and hydro. Most of these clean energy resources are renewable because they are primarily harvested through naturally recurring elements and when compared to non-renewable resources, clean energy solutions are much more beneficial for the environment; they don’t emit harmful combustion like carbon dioxide into the air. Overall, the continuing efforts to implement and expand clean energy is driving the overall renewable energy market while government initiatives to enforce clean-energy acts are also further developing the market. Based on the current trends, the renewable energy industry is positioned to become one of the fastest growing global marketplaces. According to data by BP’s Energy Outlook, the global renewable energy market could potentially grow by 400% by 2040. However, the renewable energy industry is still in its infancy stage, as it is expected to only account for 14% of the global energy demand. Despite the small figure, the rapid development in countries like China and India could yet expand the prevalence of clean energy. Triad Pro Innovators, Inc. (OTC: TPII), Vivint Solar, Inc.

In its research, BP notes that the robust growth is enabled by the sharp decline in prices for wind and solar power, when compared to the cost of oil and gas. Prices of wind and solar are already marginally cheaper than non-renewable resources, but as the industry progresses, costs can decline even lower. Despite the growing initiative to transition towards clean energy, BP projects that carbon emissions are expected to increase by 10% by 2040. The 10% growth is still significantly less than the 55% rate, by which carbon emissions have grown in the past 25 years. However, regardless of the sharp drop in carbon emissions, the decline still does not meet the expectations of the Paris Agreement’s climate goals. The Paris Agreement is an agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change intended to deal with climate control beginning in 2020. The Agreement’s goal is to keep global temperature this century below 2 degrees Celsius and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further by 1.5 degrees Celsius. Nations presented in the agreement are collectively working together to reduce the negative impacts caused by non-renewable resources. In efforts to mitigate the impact, the Paris Agreement will provide financing and aid in order to achieve the goals outlined. “It is also clear from the many, many comments by world leaders from China to India and Europe to Latin America and the Pacific that nations everywhere are standing shoulder to shoulder in their determination to achieve the Paris Agreement and move forward as one,” said Nick Nuttall, Spokesperson of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, “Why? Because it is in everyone’s national interest, it is not a straight-jacket but a flexible framework, it offers a road map to a more prosperous, healthier and job generating future and it can assist in avoiding risks to lives, livelihoods and our shared human existence.”
Triad Pro Innovators, Inc. (OTC: TPII) yesterday announced breaking news after the market close that, “in addition to our proof of concept solar golf cart, we are in the process of documenting research utilizing our patented proprietary eCell, in additional new applications.
One of the applications being tested by the Triad Pro Innovators research and development team is a utility scale energy storage device using Triad’s eCell technology which would be capable of many decades of peak shaving costs related to electricity being consumed by corporations. Many corporations utilizing significant volumes of kilowatt hours will be able to store electricity, using the proprietary Triad Pro eCell, at lower tier costs and feed that energy into their internal grid during the peak usage hours – saving, depending on the size of the Corporation, significant dollars. Additionally, the Triad Pro eCell array can load solar power, or energy from a variety of sources, and store it for later use.
Other applications being researched include the eCell proprietary technology modified for a number of transportation modes. Delivery vehicles and others, with adequate roof top availability, either land or maritime based, are perfect candidates for the Triad eCell technology, as adapted for combined solar and electrical grid input. The utilization of this eCell technology will save the users, huge but immeasurable, at this time, dollars in fuel and maintenance costs.
