Electricity demands continue to rise in several global markets regardless of the increasing number of small scale renewable energy projects like residential and commercial solar rooftop systems. In recent years there has been a sudden increase in the emergence and use of new technologies such as smartphones, laptops, tablets etc, that are increasing the demand for electricity. With the emergence of these technologies, our society is getting more connected to each other than ever before and the use of wireless devices is on the higher side.
Going wireless is fundamentally supported by devices based on lithium-ion batteries. From the outside, going wireless looks like it’s reducing the electricity usage but what it is actually doing is raising the demand for electricity. In the years to come, you can very much notice this macroeconomic trend. This rise in wireless technologies has brought up new possibilities for the electrification of transport. The result of this can already be seen on our roads with the increased number of buses and cars running on lithium-ion batteries.
Building a sustainable community
The principal motive for this transformation to the electric device is to reduce the emissions from vehicles in the dense urban areas and thereby providing a better living condition for the citizens. For urban planners, developing sustainable communities that consolidate the use of clean energy technologies and minimal or zero-emission transportation is putting up quite a challenge. This is at the same time due to the lack of resources or due to the ignorance of the majority of population. This shift to clean energy could have the benefit of lessening the ground level emissions in the cities. It is also significant that the energy sources used for this shift is coming from clean energy resources such as solar, wind, etc.
Goodbye fossil fuels
As the electricity demand is growing quietly, it is very important to reduce, and eventually stop, the use of fossil fuels and increase the production and use of renewable energy and natural gas. Though natural gas, as compared to coal, is a much cleaner-burning source of fuel, persistently low prices have reduced the coal-based power generation. Looking at it from an environment and health point of view, coal-based power generation has significantly reduced in the recent years as nations around the world have sworn to stop the production capacity and move to more eco-friendly emissions.
Geared up for clean energy
Many European nations have already geared up as they plan to switch completely from coal to much more renewable energy sources. France tops this list by committing to end the coal energy generation by 2022, followed by Ireland and Italy by 2025, Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Portugal and Finland by 2030 and Germany to shut down their coal-powered plants by 2038. Inspired from this brilliant move, the impact is now reaching to many other countries as well as Chile is planning to end the coal-powered plants by the year, 2024.
With so many coal-generating plants to be shut down in various parts of the world, it’s undoubted that the economical aspect of these assets will become challenging to a whole new level. As societies continue to increase the demand for electricity, simultaneously increasing the need to reduce emissions, electric vehicles and demand for clean energy are definitely going to be on the rise. Especially in the densely populated urban regions, clean and renewable energy generation are undoubted to grow over the next couple of decades.
