Three Keys To Unlocking The Climate Solution Right Under Our Feet
An article by Pecan Street's CEO Suzanne Russo was recently published by Forbes about the role that soil carbon sequestration can play in addressing climate change. This article was published by the Forbes Technology Council, of which Russo is a member. You can expect to see more thought leadership on the clean energy industry, technology, and our work to address climate change published through the Forbes Technolgy Council in the near future.
What’s Holding Back the Energy Future We’ve Been Promised?
Over the last 10 years of conducting research on electricity use and advanced technologies like electric vehicles and solar systems, my colleagues at Pecan Street have found there are four key technology roadblocks that are holding back innovation and adoption of cleantech products, services and systems.
Addressing a Data Blind Spot for Clean Energy Modelers
We’ll identify and collect hyperlocal sociodemographic and air quality data and build a modeling overlay that enables grid system modelers to assess the local benefits of shutting down individual power plants.
The Role of Consumer Data in Clean Energy Deployment
An article by Pecan Street's CEO Suzanne Russo was recently published by Forbes about the role of consumer data regulation in accelerating clean energy deployment. This is Russo's first article to be published as a member of the Forbes Technology Council.
Pecan Street Convenes Artificial Intelligence Working Group to Advance Soil Carbon Sequestration on Farms
Pecan Street Inc. and The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) have launched a globally unique AI for Soil Carbon Sequestration Working Group to explore new methods for using artificial intelligence (AI) to overcome the barriers to widespread adoption of climate- beneficial farming practices.
We Don’t Have Time to Solve Problems One-at-a-Time. And We Don’t Have To.
By Suzanne Russo, CEO, Pecan Street - We can’t solve all of our problems independently – we don’t have time. And science tells us we don’t have to. So Pecan Street is adopting a Wicked Solutions approach to all our work. We will apply our unique capabilities to identify and prioritize the wicked problems that sit at the nexus of climate change mitigation and adaptation and focus our effort toward developing wicked solutions.
