Power up for Life with Renewables at the Forefront
The model of the industry that provides electricity for daily life has remained little changed over the past 100 years. Electricity has been produced by central power stations — coal, hydro, diesel, gas and nuclear — fed into an electricity grid and delivered to customers through a network of substations and lines.
The maturity and sophistication of the industry is highlighted by its continual improvement in efficiency, technological innovation and the increase of its reach to the furthest corners of the globe. Nevertheless, some suggest that the fundamentals of the industry will remain constant for the next 50 to 100 years.
