Without question, electricity is by far the most important source of energy for global economic growth and human prosperity. There’s a strong positive correlation between electricity consumption and economic growth, regardless of whether it’s generated by coal, oil, natural gas, hydro, nuclear or renewables, the end result is power generation that’s critical for the progress of humanity. Electricity is needed to run our industries, commercial usage, lighting, cooking, heating and cooling and even required for the transport sector. Life pauses when there’s an electricity outage — a disruption in communication systems makes us feel helpless.
