Battery storage of power: What are the positive opportunities and risks?
Battery storage technology is rapidly evolving, and the Tesla Powerwall is an excellent example of the latest advancements that can help businesses rethink their energy usage. However, there are certain risks associated with new technology, such as the Powerwall's efficiency figures, which may be impacted by its long-term durability, thermal regulations, and design reliability. Moreover, batteries can be dangerous if not handled properly, and they can also cause environmental damage over time, which may raise questions about the benefits of saving money in the long run.
Despite these risks, the Tesla Powerwall offers several positive opportunities for businesses. For instance, it can be used as an emergency power backup during power outages, and it enables companies to generate power using solar energy, which can help them avoid peak rates and reduce their reliance on the power grid. Additionally, the Powerwall requires less maintenance, resulting in reduced labor costs.
In conclusion, the Tesla Powerwall is an upcoming technology that can revolutionize the way we power buildings and electric vehicles using solar energy. However, Tesla needs to implement this technology correctly and sustainably with a comprehensive risk management plan to ensure its successful adoption.
From Broken Guitar to Rebuilt Reputation: United Airlines' Journey of Risk Management and Brand Redemption
It is a well-known fact that organizations and projects face various risks that can have a significant impact on their operations. With the advent of social media and the freedom of expression on the internet, it has become easier for people to share their opinions and experiences, both positive and negative. This has added a layer of risk to businesses, which can be detrimental to their reputation and bottom line.
In the case of United Airlines, a protest song created by musician Dave Carroll had a significant impact on the company's performance. The song went viral and caused a massive backlash against the airline, leading to a loss of customer trust and a drop in share value. United Airlines responded by offering Carroll flight vouchers worth $1200 to repair his guitar, which had been damaged during a flight. However, it took them nine months to process his claim, which further damaged their reputation.
Eventually, United Airlines accepted defeat and called Carroll to apologize and ask for permission to use the video for staff training and to modify their customer service policy. Carroll posted a video address thanking the public for their support while urging a more understanding and civil attitude. This incident highlights the importance of proper risk management and the impact that negative social media can have on a company's reputation.
