The benefits, risks, and future of artificial intelligence in solar and wind energy
The use of artificial intelligence in industries continues at an impressive rate — in manufacturing, engineering, healthcare, transportation, finance, telecommunications, services, and energy. Artificial intelligence’s ability to use machine learning to analyse historical and new data, make predictions, control physical operations, and make decisions at increasingly higher levels is having an immense impact. Helping artificial intelligence on its way are advances in data processing capacity, the expansion of sensor markets, and a new world of data sources. Technologies using artificial intelligence see falling rates of investment return; and, in general, costs for artificial intelligence are lowering as the ease of its use is increasing.
This paper looks at the beneﬁts and risks to the solar and wind industries in future artiﬁcial intelligence advances.
