We are facing considerable challenges in reliable distribution of power, for electrification and disaster recovery. Countries all over the world are legislating for the transition from combustion engines to electric vehicles, requiring having available power as well as the capacity to deliver the power to the load centers, aka the home and public charging units.
In addition, severe weather conditions are increasing the need for reliable and resilient supply of electricity – to hospitals, airports, water supply, etc.
However, many countries, regions and local areas are facing the risk of forced power outages due to lack of investment by the utilities.
In the United States, the average investment in power infrastructure is US$ 34, in some states, US$ 51, and in others less than US$ 8.
