HOW LEAVING THE POWER GRID PUTS YOU BACK IN CHARGE

HOW LEAVING THE POWER GRID PUTS YOU BACK IN CHARGE

Electricity is the “fuel” and the very backbone of society. But a dramatic transformation of the way it is produced, transported, stored and delivered is been going on for some time now. The power sector is changing, as new innovative technologies are emerging, disrupting the traditional ways we’ve all been accustomed to. Economic stability is one side that it is considered, while meeting environmental goals is another.

But aside these, the new actors and businesses in the field also consider the customers and their benefits. That’s why there are increasing discussions on how leaving the power grids would be a plus for everyone.

ZERO CO2 EMISSIONS ARE STILL HARD TO REACH

The demand for electricity in advanced economies is flattening and declining, while it continues to grow in developing economies. The European Union, the United States and Japan are quite stagnant in their demands, as China and India register a strong growth. Still, today almost one billion people don’t have access to a constant electricity supply.

Electricity supply is undergoing several transformations, with wind and solar power growing fast. Coal share has remained flat, while natural gas-fired generation is still expanding. Thermal power highly contributes to flexibility and the reliability of power systems, as the expansion of renewables has not yet dented the overall share of fossil fuels.

That is why the constant increase of energy demand and the slow development and spread of renewables, is not really helping to achieve the 2015 Paris Agreement. No fossil fuels burn, and zero CO2 emissions goals still seem far away.

THE WAYS OF THE PAST DON’T WORK ANYMORE

The obvious choice of the past for everybody was to get their electricity and heat from grids – those large plants that produced what was needed in homes and businesses. Everybody was dependent on them, for the alternatives – say, personal power generators based on fuel – were expensive. And only several remote areas afforded those.

Traditional fireplaces were maybe the best solution of the past. You would just walk in the forest, cut some trees, then chop them to pieces and voila, your place was heated and cozy. But aside the hard work you had to put yourself up to – especially in the winter – forest cutting regulations became more and more drastic, with every passing year. And wood, increasingly expensive.

THE FUTURE PUTS YOU IN CHARGE. AND INCREASES YOUR COMFORT.

As personal thermal stations became increasingly popular several decades ago, people subscribed to the new trend and left the thermal grids. It provided them with more control over the heat in their homes – either houses or flats – and it made consumption more affordable. They no longer depended on a centralized system – which, if it broke down, they would just freeze in their homes. It was a golden era, with an emphasis on comfort and control.

But as these thermal stations are still based on gas, provided by a central plant – another grid – it became increasingly expensive and prohibited by environmental regulations, so many communities and private homes switched to electricity. Still, either provided by the grid or personally produced by solar panels or wind farms, it comes at a great cost. The economy does not prosper as it should. The environment is still polluted. And personal comfort is not increased.

But what if there would be an option to disconnect entirely from power grids and at the same time, not use solar or wind energy?
What if there would be a device to keep your home powered and heated at a good price, while being clean, economically reliable and putting you entirely in charge?
