AES Corporation Makes Strategic Investment In Solar Technology Innovator 5B To Increase Solar Energy Production

The AES Corporation announces that it has made a strategic investment in 5B, a solar technology innovator based in Sydney, Australia. 5B's revolutionary MAVERICK design enables customers to add solar resources at a pace that is three times faster while providing up to two times more energy within the same footprint of traditional solar facilities. Together, AES and 5B will help clients accelerate their use of solar energy. The total global investment in the solar energy market between 2021-2025 is projected to reach $613 billion as companies transition to greener sources of energy. 5B's MAVERICK design enables companies to make that transition more quickly and while using less land. Prefabricated solar solution The MAVERICK design is a pre-wired, prefabricated solar solution that is folded up, shipped to site and rolled out. The 5B approach streamlines engineering, procurement and construction for ground-mounted solar facilities. MAVERICK also removes common barriers for organizations to deploy solar resources, including the availability of land and ground penetration, making solar possible in more places while providing the flexibility to easily relocate the resources in some applications. "Solar is the most abundant clean energy source in the world, and 5B's innovative design produces twice the energy for any given area," said Andrés Gluski, President and CEO of AES. "In addition, a project using 5B's technology can be built in a third of the time when compared with conventional solar. These significant advantages will help us meet our customers growing needs in today's ever-changing environment." Annual renewables growth AES Gener will deploy 10 MW of MAVERICK technology as a part of the expansion of its Los Andes solar facility AES will benefit from the use of 5B's MAVERICK technology across many of the projects in its expected 2 to 3 GW of annual renewables growth. This year, AES Panama will fast-track the delivery of a 2 MW project utilizing the MAVERICK solution. In Chile, AES Gener will deploy 10 MW of MAVERICK technology as a part of the expansion of its Los Andes solar facility in the Atacama Desert in the north of the country. "AES share our vision for a clean energy future. Our Maverick solution is defining the next generation for solar power and the true potential of solar power in terms of how fast, simple, flexible and low cost it should and will be," said Chris McGrath, 5B's Co-founder and CEO. Energy technology platforms "5B has delivered the speed and efficiency benefits of our MAVERICK solution in the Australian market, and now AES is bringing its strength to bear as we scale our solution globally." Following a US $8.6 million investment round that included AES, 5B joins a growing portfolio of energy technology platforms in which AES has made strategic investments. AES had a foundational role in the creation and growth of the energy storage market through Fluence, its joint venture with Siemens. Fluence is the largest grid-scale battery energy storage solutions company in the world. AES is also collaborating with Uplight, the digital customer energy platform in the US. AES' strategic collaborations with and investments in these companies have helped them to accelerate the future of energy.

Motorola Solutions To Exhibit Advanced Mission-Critical Communications Solutions At Critical Communications World 2019
Motorola Solutions To Exhibit Advanced Mission-Critical Communications Solutions At Critical Communications World 2019

Motorola Solutions will demonstrate how its advanced, mission-critical solutions enable public safety and enterprise organizations to overcome their most complex challenges at Critical Communications World 2019 (June 18-20, MITEC, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, booth G30). At CCW 2019, Motorola Solutions will showcase a comprehensive set of innovations spanning mission-critical communications, command center software, video security solutions and managed and support services. Mission-critical communications Mission-critical communications are essential to maintaining safety and security for our communities Mission-critical communications are essential to maintaining safety and security for our communities, from daily operations to extreme events including disaster recovery. These solutions are essential for the Asia Pacific region, as evidenced by a United Nations report estimating that economic losses from natural disasters could reach USD$160 billion annually by 2030. Organizations also demand new solutions to augment voice communication with the unprecedented volumes of data and video available today. To address this need, Motorola Solutions has brought together a comprehensive, integrated mission-critical ecosystem of technologies comprising: Mission-Critical Communications: Including the TLK100 and LEX L11 LTE devices that show what is possible over LTE networks and the ultra-portable LXN505 public safety LTE infrastructure system. Command Centre Software: To streamline and simplify daily workflows including CommandCentral Aware, the world’s only unified, proven, end-to-end public safety applications suite. Video Security Solutions: Including the latest from Avigilon’s video security and analytics portfolio including the H4 Thermal camera with self-learning video analytics. Managed & Support Services: To enable customers to focus on their mission while staying ahead of cybersecurity threats. Access to accurate data Having access to the right data enables organizations to make fast and accurate decisions on valuable resources' placement" “Having access to the right data enables organizations to make fast and accurate decisions about where to place their valuable resources, which work to prioritize and how to prepare for their most challenging events,” Motorola Solutions corporate vice president, Mike deVente, said. “The mission-critical ecosystem we are demonstrating at CCW draws on our 90 year heritage of innovation and our strong understanding of customers’ daily operational needs,” he said. Critical Communications World 2019 At CCW 2019, commercial customers in the transportation, energy and utilities segments will also learn how Motorola Solutions’ mission-critical ecosystem and the innovations in critical communications can be customized to meet their needs. One recent example of this is Motorola Solutions’ successful integration work with Siemens to achieve railway signaling over TETRA networks to European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2 standards.
