Micropower: the next electrical era

Author

Dunn, Seth

Description

Micropower is emerging in two niches. In industrial nations, where aging grid equipment causes costly flickers and outages, growing dependence on digital, computerized processes is creating demand for highly dependable power. In developing nations, where centralized supply is even more brittle and has yet to reach 1.8 billion people living in power poverty, small-scale electrical services are often already the most economical option.
