Power Grids Of The Future Won’t Waste Energy

During energy transmission lots of electricity is lost. For wind energy, generated in the North Sea or regional wind, solar, and bio-gas power plants to reach consumers, there is a long transmission line required. In this journey, lots of energy is lost. Nevertheless, new electronic components are providing a solution. Electricity flows very similarly to [...]
