LONDON, December 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
As the 21st century progresses, changes across societies have begun to place a strain on many of the things we rely most heavily upon. Already steps are being taken to combat our unsustainable reliance on fossil fuels, but only now is there a dawning recognition that the increasing demand for power needs to be seriously addressed.
Plans for the increase in renewable energy quantities may solve the demand problem but will introduce many more problems given the outdated infrastructure grid currently used to transmit electricity. What is required is a fresh approach to our energy delivery. Smart grids present the way forward.
Smart grids are designed to tackle the issue of changeable levels of power generation that is inherent with renewable sources without passing on the inconvenience to the end user, while increasing efficiency and reducing carbon production and improving the environment.
Already The New Economy has witnessed the rise of the companies as they meet the challenge of creating efficient and intelligent electricity grid systems capable of meeting the demands of a new century. Through the Smart Grids Award 2011, The New Economy acknowledges their work.
The New Economy congratulates all the winners of the Smart Grids Awards and looks forward to the improvements their work will bring in the future.
