These investors are ardent supporters of the AI Grid Foundation’s mission to promote the ELONCITY Model and enable universal access to safe, reliable, affordable, sustainable and equitable energy services for all.   The rapid growth of the earth’s population and the industrialization of developing countries are driving global energy demands to unprecedented levels. The world’s energy dependence on fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas pose significant risks to the environment and are one of the leading drivers of detrimental climate changes.   The majority of scientists around the world agree that based on our current trajectory, the world is heading towards a series of irreversible ecological disasters. One possible pathway to alter this course is to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels drastically. The need for “GHG-free renewable energy” has become a pressing issue, concerning all of humanity.   With these challenges, new approaches to energy production and distribution are needed. The solutions must support vibrant and sustainable global growth. Andy Li founded the AI Grid Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Singapore. The AI Grid Foundation advocates for the employment of decentralized renewable

The Digital Impact Alliance and ITU Release New Digital Investment Framework to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

  NEW YORK – The Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) released a global call to action today, inviting governments, donors, technology vendors and other stakeholders to adopt a whole-of-government approach to investing in digital technology. The call to action builds upon a new Digital Investment Framework that DIAL and ITU have developed for global stakeholders which identifies digital technologies that are most important to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).   The launch of this new SDG Digital Investment Framework is the first step in DIAL and ITU’s ongoing collaboration. The Framework examined use cases in agriculture, education and the health sector and identifies a set of common, reusable ICT building blocks. For example, a few of the building blocks relate to identification, messaging and payment systems, all which can be reused across multiple development sectors. Investing in reusable ICT building blocks – like India and Estonia have approached their e-governance efforts – has been proven to increase efficiency, deliver a higher ROI for governments and create a platform-based ecosystem that attracts a higher volume of application providers.   “The Framework reinforces our commitment to breaking down barriers and looking for ways to institutionalize digital technology into development services,” said Kate Wilson, CEO, Digital Impact Alliance. “While this is our first joint initiative with ITU, we look forward to our continued work to help governments, the private sector, and donors make smarter and more strategic investments in digital technology to realize their potential to deliver SDG

Aqua Bio Technologies to Showcase Complete Line of Its Revolutionary Water Recycling Solutions at Northeast Regional Carwash Convention

  DARIEN, ILL. – Aqua Bio Technologies, LLC, a leading manufacturer of biologic water restoration, water reclaim, rain harvest, odor control, and reverse osmosis systems, today announced it will be showcasing its complete line of pioneering water recycling solutions at the Northeast Regional Carwash Convention at the Atlantic City Convention Center in New Jersey on October 2 and 3, 2018. The company’s best-of-breed solutions are a game-changer for the carwash industry. None of its water recycling systems use ozone, UV or chemicals of any kind to control odor. They provide vehicle wash owners with exceptionally clean water with the added benefits of dramatically reducing water and sewer costs.   The Aqua Bio Technologies team will be at Booth 228 to answer all questions about their Bio Complete and Pro-Limited water restoration systems; Pro-Rain water harvesting system; Pro-Air odor control system; the first-of-kind closed-loop biologic water restoration system, Bio Softreat; and its Reverse Osmosis systems.   A brief overview of each system’s benefits are as follows:   Bio Complete: no other treatment system available can match the benefits of this water restoration system. The system removes the used chemicals out of the water, therefore the water can be used in 90 to 95% of the wash. Pro-Limited: designed for a vehicle wash that doesn’t need complete water restoration, this entry-level system removes solids down to 5 micron (the size of a single human blood cell). The system uses aeration, not potentially dangerous ozone, to provide a no odor guarantee. It occupies minimum
