Answers for a Sustainable, Renewable Power Long run for Sanibel and the AreaMai 28, 2023
The ‘duck curve’ is solar power’s biggest problemMai 28, 2023
CEO John Belizaire has solution to help spread renewable energy around the world.
The tough part is what to do with excess energy that renewables can sometimes generate. If the grid they rely on to sell that excess energy isn’t capable of absorbing it goes to waste. It’s called curtailment and it’s a major impeding factor that goes into the calculation of where to build renewables.
CEO John Belizaire wants to offer an alternative.
Why not attach data centers that can be turned on and off, at the right time, thus minimizing the reliance on the grid as the sole buyer of excess energy?
Soluna Computing builds modular, scalable data centers that convert wasted renewable energy into computing power for intensive, batchable applications such as cryptocurrency mining, AI, and machine learning.
John Belizaire is a serial entrepreneur, with degrees in computer science and engineering from Cornell University. We had to talk to him.
