Today, 4thWave Inc., a Canada based fintech, launched an integrated working capital financing and B2B payment solution in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Thuwal, Saudi Arabia.-Monday 28 February 2022 [ AETOS Wire ]

As global sustainability and clean energy megatrends impact how we approach energy strategies toward a greener future for the planet, renewable technologies such as wind and solar are leading areas of focus for research. In the solar technology space, the emerging field of perovskite solar cells (PSCs) has gained popularity within the last decade and a half.

However, in a field dominated by silicon solar cells, the relatively new technology of perovskite solar cells must besides offering high power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) also meet two other crucial requirements to be successfully commercialized: stability and scalability.

In a recently published Science paper, KAUST researchers have reported a significant milestone through the first-ever successful PV damp-heat test of PSCs.

The damp-heat test is an accelerated and rigorous environmental aging test aimed at determining the ability of ... Read more »

Emerson recommends a cybersecurity risk assessment to evaluate gaps in currently implemented strategies, technologies, and policies and procedures. The output of the assessment will provide a roadmap for identifying, prioritizing, and eliminating vulnerabilities.

To begin, operations technology (OT) and information technology (IT) teams must be aware of three common missteps:

Assuming the team already knows and understands all the risks
Cy ... Read more »
