TInergy is for people who believe in technology innovation as the key to unlocking new sources of clean, affordable, renewable energy and powering every aspect of our lives more efficiently.
The concept is to create new and better ways to capture and harness energy, move it more efficiently through the grid, and enable people to reduce their power consumption without sacrificing their lifestyles.
From traditional energy sources, such as coal and oil, to wind, solar and energy scavenging, make the process of gathering energy as safe, clean, efficient, productive and reliable as possible.
Semiconductor solutions for smart grid technology can reduce energy use significantly by helping consumers, businesses and power suppliers better monitor and manage energy demand.
Semiconductor technology helps reduce power consumption in the products and vehicles people rely on every day, from household items, such as TVs, kitchen appliances and lighting, to business applications in the data center to cars, scooters and motorcycles.
Cradle to Cradle: Eco-efficient Green Base Station Design
There is an interesting emerging angle to the green movement known as the cradle to cradle concept. The concept is that all products exist in a never ending cycle — “birth to rebirth” not “birth to death” — and waste is minimized or eliminated at every step.
Example: On the “birth,” or front end, of the product creation process, a high-tech company can do things like recycle water used as part of the silicon wafer manufacturing process, treat and recycle toxic solvents, and offer lead free parts. And, probably even more interesting, on the back end or “rebirth” side, provide scrap silicon wafers to alternative energy manufacturers who actually use them to make solar cells!
In the wireless networking space, there are some interesting green telecom initiatives and base station design strategies that can be implemented today to save costs. For example, there is a fascinating chain reaction of initial power reduction that occurs in the base station architecture.
