This article mainly talks about how useful drones are in the energy industry. Drones equipped with cameras and sensors are doing what’s often done by workers in helicopters or on ropes. It’s using a 13-pound, fixed-winged vehicle equipped with LiDAR (light detection and ranging) equipment and remote sensors to collect 3-D images. Oil and gas companies as well as utilities are testing them to inspect pipelines, power lines, wind turbines, and solar farms. with this new technology it will make it safer and cheaper to service and maintain wind turbines, solar panel as well as dams and other large structure that are vital to producing alternate sources of energy. This is extremely promising because it not only cuts cost but keeps people safe. this technology has also become increasingly used when dealing with the repercussions of natural deserters.
