Vicor podcast: CCell Renewables' coastal erosion fight
Vicor explored a new technology that naturally deters coastal erosion on the Powering Innovation podcast. The latest episode examines the challenges facing coastal environments and communities when it comes to the devastations caused by erosion caused by waves and how CCell Renewables, this month's guest, can combat this by propagating coral reefs.
CCell Renewables, which won the 2022 Power System Product of the Year award, is aiming to reduce the impact of erosion by working with nature to restore a sustainable balance to coastal environments and bring lasting protection to communities around the world.
Robert Gendron, Corporate Vice President, Product Development for Vicor, invites Dr Will Bateman, CEO from CCell Renewables, to discuss their newest advancements, such as using AI, to not only monitor reef health, but also to identify new species within these ecosystems. With everything CCell does, Bateman emphasizes the importance of building new reefs in harmony with nature, enhancing habitats.
"This is another fascinating episode of our Powering Innovation podcast," said Gendron. "We discuss technology in a very niche area, but which is so important with the ever-growing climate change challenges. For what Will is trying to achieve, Vicor's Factorised Power Architecture is really an ideal solution to deliver the precise conditions for growing coral. The CCell technology is brilliant and is truly world-changing. We are happy to be able to partner with them in this important work."
