Smart Grid Revolution! "The electricity sector is currently going through the "transformation process" that the temanication sector began to experience 25 years ago."
Sean O'Driscoll, Glen Dimplex (leading electric heater manufacturer according to Silicon Valley reports…) Y.K. President and CEO,
"What will happen in the near future? We will see that the electricity sector is ine-house with it, communication and the Internet," Sean O'Driscoll said, also notable for the following points.
- By 2020, Ireland will be providing 40% of its electricity and 30% of UK electricity from renewable energy sources, but storing energy will be an urgent and imperative need as this will create the problem of "how do we keep continuity?"
- What will be the most efficient source of energy storage? Buildings!
Glen Dimplex is pioneering a new generation of water and ambient heating technology.
Smart Grid Revolution
This technology stores energy at times of minimum consumption demand from renewable energy sources and uses it to heat the environment or water at times of maximum consumption demand. Sean O'Driscoll says the technology is the "first smart grid-based electric heater."
In the ongoing time, we have seen network-friendly home appliances and applications from GE and Whirlpool companies. If O'Driscoll is right, we will soon see the spread of our household appliances, which can contact the grid and store the energy needs according to the load status of the grid.
