Changes in the Electrical and Micro Grid

Changes in the Electrical and Micro Grid | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

Microgrids are becoming a worldwide phenomenon. Currently an estimated $4.5 billion market in the US alone with 1,459 MW online and 1,122 MW in planning or development, the microgrid market is expected to continue to grow as the world demands ever more electricity usage and the grid struggles to keep up. The truth is that the traditional grid was not built to cope with the extraordinary level and fluctuations of present-day demand, and microgrids present the perfect solution. The question (to the utilities) is whether we are ready to embrace the change and adapt.

The Outlook for Energy: A view to 2040

The Outlook for Energy: A view to 2040 | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

In 2040, what types of energy will the world use, and how much? How will new technologies, efficiencies and policies impact the market?

The electricity generation sector is essential to meeting modern energy needs. Utilities and other electricity producers transform different types of primary energy – everything from natural gas to coal to wind and hydroelectric power – into electricity to be used in homes and businesses. Through 2040, global demand for electricity will continue to rise steeply, as the fuels used for electricity generation continue to shift to lower-carbon sources, such as natural gas, nuclear and renewables.
