While the use of electricity is obvious, this is the most crucial and broadest part of the energy story. The use of energy is changing more now as we approach 2020 than maybe anytime since we electrified our homes and industries. Technology is driving smarter and more innovative ways to use energy in more efficient and effective ways. E-mobility being so huge has been called out as it’s own separate topic given the focus on this at the moment.
For over 100 years, we have been exploiting the use of electricity to enhance our day to day lives and there are countless interesting stories from the past that show the impact this has had. As we move to the future however we have ever more innovative uses of electricity and ever more ways to optimise the overall amount we use. From the first light bulbs to the birth of the Internet of Things (IoT) there are stories here that really highlight why every energy story is so important.
