DC Power: Tomorrow's Energy Demands Will Require More Attention
The International Energy Agency (IEA) projects world energy consumption will increase by 50% in Organized for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries in less than 22 years. This brings a host of logistical concerns - from infrastructure to cost and environmental impact - to the world table in relatively few years. While DC power operates many modern lighting and appliance products in business applications, it powers far less for consumer use. However, some associations within the industry are developing standards that will lead to the rapid adoption of DC power distribution. This white paper takes a look at DC power and how some experts believe it is the answer for future energy needs.
